The Weekend: A Photo Essay

Today, I have spent most of the day with these since the first report card grades are due Tuesday:

I think I might have a problem. Yes, that is five bottles of creamer in my refrigerator. In my defense, the chocolate mint truffle is almost gone. And I wouldn't have bought the white chocolate raspberry, but MJ said that even if I had to spend my last dime to buy it, I needed it. That sounded like serious business...and I'm susceptible to the advice of others. So I have five bottles of creamer. And let's be honest, if Wal-Mart had the pumpkin spice, I would have bought it too.Last minute gifts for two girls in our Sunday School class that are moving away. Here they are all wrapped up.
The gift for Sister C. It's a picture frame that is serving as a dry erase board, I just put scrapbook paper behind it and tied a bow and hot glued it on. Then I added a dry erase marker with an eraser, and voila! The little notebook is just a mini composition book that I added scrapbook paper and ribbon to with Mod-Podge. The other kids in class then wrote a little message to each of the girls.
Sister B's gift. Same thing, but blue and brown.
And I finally hung the picture frame I got last month at Meijer. Again, no pictures. We have lots of pictures of strangers around our house. You can't really tell in this picture, but the mom in the top photo looks like what I imagine my friend Jami will look like in twenty years. It's crazy. I may mail it to her when I finally get a real picture in there. And I made that little plaque this afternoon. This is in our bedroom, when you first walk in...that wall the side of my closet.

I guess that means when you come home for Thanksgiving the cameras are coming out! :)
