Cub Scouts - Collection Presentation

At Monday night's Cub Scout meeting the boys were to give a presentation on what they collect. Griffin's presentation was on fossils, rocks and teeth. You can see pictures of some of his favorites pieces on the posterboard behind him. He is holding the oldest fossil in his collection. It is a dinosaur fossil. Mosasaur teeth from the Cretaceous Period. This particular fossil was found in Morocco, North Africa.

Giving Thanks.

Look how creatively my niece Diana and sister-in-law Bonnie used my "Giving Thanks" tags.

On Thanksgiving Day they had a beautiful fall vignette set up for their guests to write what they are thankful for on the back of the tag.

Then they were displayed on a tree branch for all to enjoy.

My "Giving Thanks" tags are available in the shop. If you would like these or something similar custom made just contact me!

Missy Made It! ~

Like Father, Like Son.

Like Father, Like Son. Yesterday when Mike was playing the drums it reminded me of the boy I fell in love with all those many years ago way back in 1985.

Repairing C3P0

Even Griffin knows {anything} can be repaired with a little ingenuity. He lost C3PO's head and armour so he recreated it himself with a little paper, pin work and hot glue.

Walk In The Woods

I forget how much fun it can be to take a walk through our woods with my boys. { all four of them }

Griffin Is Star Student Of The Week!

Griffin was chosen "Star Student" this week. That meant it was his turn to bring the class mascot Bubbles home for the weekend. When Griffin told me he was the star student his exact words were "this is the best day of my life". He is to write about his weekend in Bubbles' journal and share pictures of what he did. This is a little bit of the fun we had.

They found a four leaf clover. We went to the Children's Museum (we tried going to the Science Museum but with the race we could not get there). We visited Sweet Spot Candy Shop. They jumped on the trampoline. We went to Frida's for dinner. We went to church. Daddy, Griffin, Jasper, Oliver & Bubbles went for a buggy ride. I think Bubbles enjoyed his weekend with us.
