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!

Leaf Family

This is the perfect time of year to read "Leaf Man" by Lois Ehlert. It is a charming book about shapes that can be seen (men, fish, cats, etc.) in the autumn when the leaves fall. The girls and I collected leaves, acorns, and feathers at the park today so that we could make our own leaf family. Katie made a Mommy leaf, a Baby Leaf and a Big Sister (10 years old) Leaf, as well as a Ladybug Leaf! Mandy made Big Sister and Little Sister Leaves. We also made the Apple Muffin recipe today that was written in the book "Apple Annie"- another fun book! Try to get out and enjoy the beautiful fall weather and scenery before the cold weather comes!:-)

What a great idea! Thanks for the tip and the books. It will give us something else to look forward to doing next week when the kids are off of school :o)
