a cry for help!

the help i need is the birthday party kind.

Dominic and 3 friends are going bowling for his birthday. the birthday boy has proclaimed that it shall be a Star Wars party, so i need easily transportable, treats, that the boys can just take from the serving dish and eat, there will be no ceremonial cake cutting, and i like to keep frosting to a minimum. other than star shaped cookies im at a loss.

so throw your Star Wars birthday ideas this way.

the puppet show

i was treated to a puppet show saturday afternoon, an original production. very original

not too much of a plot, but it was groundbreaking in technique. and there was alot of silliness.

and then we went out for a little walk.

its so easy to find simple sewing projects for girls, for boys however...not so much.

heres one i came up with to keep D's swords put away

it has space for a couple more swords or light sabers and a loop on the back to hang it on the wall.
i would also like to add that it was made completely with scraps that i had cut off of pants legs when converting them to shorts. waste not, want not i always say.

home alone

i remember the days before i was a mom, i took being home alone for granted.

now when im home alone it means i get to take a shower for longer than ten minutes, eat cookies without trying to hide them in the folds of my sweatshirt to avoid having to share and possibly my favorite, sit undisturbed for a half hour...or even longer if i feel like it.

i said today was going to be cleaning day, but now im not so sure, i might just enjoy the silence, and maybe even paint my toenails.

first day of K5

the first morning of K5 (thats kindergarten for age 5, some of you know he was in K4 last year at the same school) went off without a hitch. it was a rather normal feeling morning, nothing different than what we did last year there was no excitement, no feelings of butterflies in the stomach, just another day at school. look how much hes grown though!
