My kindergartener came home with with a "thinking cap" he made at school.  How awesome is that?!  I love the lightbulb on top!  I think I need one.


Our little town had its annual Holiday Festival tonight.  And Little Girl got to experience her first snow.  I loosely call it "snow", it's the manufactured/trucked-in version.  But, it's the closest we here in South Texas get most years to snow!

Shorty after entering the snow yard, her 5 year old brother threw a snowball at 4 year old Little Girl and she cried out, "Hey!  Awwww!  MOM, look what he did!"

I told her, "That's what you do in the snow."

And she took literally half a second to process that statement and then got to work on a snowball of her own!

And the awesome satisfaction of throwing it at her brother!


We recently got a Trader Joes grocery store in our area and it's rapidly becoming one of my favorite places.  I may or may not have even gone there twice this week (and it's not exactly around the corner).  During one of my trips this week, I picked up these to try.  

Trader Joe's version of Oreos (which I kid myself into believing makes them healthy!) only with candy cane filling!  Pure awesomeness!  Now just wondering how many boxes I should stock-pile to get me through the non-holiday months when those babies likely won't be on the store shelves!  Candy Cane Joe-Joe's in July?  Yes, please!


So long November!  Happy Friday Friends!

  1. It's hard to believe this is the last day in November already! Is the manufactured snow cold like real snow?


  2. And the light bulb on that hat is very eco-friendly! Hehehehe

  3. The thinking cap is a great idea. Fun stuff.

  4. Candy Cane Joe Joe's???? Oh, I have to run to the store! I actually like their version of Oreos than the real thing. Shhh.

  5. Great blog you've got here.. It's hard to find high-quality writing like yours nowadays.
    I honestly appreciate people like you! Take care!

  6. I can only imagine how having a TJ's nearby would affect my life, starting with those yummy cookies... :)


I'd love to hear what you think!
