About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Mystery of the Moss Covered Mansion

Nancy Drew Class.
The Mystery of the Moss Covered Mansion.
My little detectives...

      This mystery involved NASA, explosive oranges, wild animals, 
    and a mad scientist!

                    The girls created sand art in the shape of a rocket and
                         made (and really enjoyed!) Orange Julius shakes!
                                                                (recipe below)

               We played some games and had our monthly trivia 
          challenge, too.

                    Next month..... The Quest of the Missing Map!

Orange Julius

6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1/4 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract
8-9 ice cubes

2. Blend for about 1-2 minutes, adding ice cubes one at a time.
