The Locals are getting Restless...

This was my day today. (Snow Day #4)

I am the Scholastic book lady for Dallin's class. The books for December arrived at the school on Monday. Problem-we haven't been in school for 3 days. Dallin's nice principal drove them to my house today, so I have less than 24 hours to get them out to everyone before I leave. (There aren't too many books, not a huge deal.) So, as I am typing up the orders, I leave Bryce alone, where I don't realize he has access to the art closet. This is what I find.
Then, later in the day I decide to try to be craftsy with my kids and we follow Sarah's idea and attempt ornaments and nativities. It went alright. The dough was crumbly (which I couldn't figure out how to fix) so it wasn't that easy for the kids to work with. They did however manage a cute Pikachu and Mermaid figure! I would give me a B- for this project.

Last thing. Neighbor gifts. I have the bags and tags and I really wanted to make candy. We decided to make peanut butter balls. We had a really fun time, except I messed up the chocolate somehow and the dipping didn't quite work. So, we decided to give it up this year. Neighbors and friends, if you are reading this, we love you, it just didn't happen this year. We tried! I get at least a D for effort on this one.

You have a budding artist! Too bad he used his face as his palette. I did notice he used colors that perfectly matched his PJ's!

PS: You deserve a A+ for being a very cool Mommy for all that you did yesterday!!

Luckily, the kids don't care about the end result. They'll just remember the doing. So A's all around for you!

I agree with the A+ for being a cool mommy! I need to learn from you!

An "A+++" for effort, my dear!

Your dough probably needed more water. Sorry it didn't turn out as advertised.

Are you having fun with family??
