Another week

Another week is here and gone before we even realized it...

Monday, I volunteered at the school and helped out during Library time.  Does it mean that I'm a dork if I really enjoy cataloging and putting away books?  Alright, I know I'm a dork, but being a librarian was on my list of things that I wanted to be when I grew up.  After we got home, We had Poppy over for a play-date.  It had been a long time since we got these 2 best friends together and I'm happy to report that they had a blast!

Organic strawberries and whipped cream for dessert.

Playing chefs

Tuesday, was our regularly scheduled library time.  Just 2 more weeks and we'll be losing 3 of our friends and one parent to sad!!  {You're going to join us for lunch occasionally, right D??}

Wednesday, I spent lunchtime and beyond in E's class.  I had only planned on lunch duty, but E wouldn't let me leave, so I stayed.  I helped with reading, writing, and center time.

Thursday, KennaKat and I stayed home, relaxed, and played.  I also made a present for C&K, our rising Kindergartners.

Friday, was the dentist event, shopping for presents and cake supplies.  Lunch at Jason's Deli, my favorite.  I baked a Dinosaur cake for JTN for the Kindergartner's party on Saturday...  I love making cakes!

Saturday, it was raining cats and dogs in the morning, and seeing as how we only have walking territory and are down to 1 umbrella {that Nani gave us last week}, we stayed in and I finished decorating J's cake.  The party was originally scheduled to be at a grandparent's pool, but due to the rain, the 3 moms throwing the large party scrambled to find an indoors location that could hold the large crowd.  Before going to the party, we went to a memorial service for a grandmother of a friend that I grew up with.  I think I was 1 when I met that kind and loving family.  We arrived at the party almost an hour after it started and it was in full swing.  There were probably 100 people there.  They rented a bounce house and had the snoball man come and keep us cool (awesome).  When I got to the front of the line he said "Look, it's my regular!  I recognize you and a lot of other people here."  Is it weird that I love being considered a regular? :)

{{I'll include pictures from the event on a separate post.}}

We got home from the party at almost 9 last night, tired and exhausted.  After putting the kids to bed and beginning to relax, I got a text from HC saying "Hey you just won the August giveaway at the stir crazy moms blog! Yay!"  

NO FREAKIN' WAY!!!  I was/am so excited!!!  I've never won anything off of these blog giveaways.  I had actually given up on entering them because of that fact and always being a little sad when I don't see my name in the winners circle.  But this one I couldn't pass up entering in a small comment and hoping that just maybe my name would be chosen.  The Stir crazy mom's blog is a local blog written by a group of moms that explore the area and find local fun things to do with their kids.  And what did I win?  

2 hours of professional cleaning by a local "green" cleaning company!  I'm grinning from ear to ear!  If I have ever needed to win a prize, this is the one that was meant for me.  My house is in desperate need of a thorough cleaning.  I can't wait!!!

So now it's Sunday morning and I'm off to get ready for the meeting.

Have a great day!!!

Congrats on the win! That's awesome! And you know I want to see the cake. So I have to tell momma was so sad she didn't win the magnet paper dolls...but she was so happy you shared how to do it. She went out and bought the supplies and used them for her Mary Englebreit paper dolls. Now when Haylei goes over to stay with Nana, she can play with the dolls. THANK YOU!!! :)

Thanks Candi!
I'm so glad your mom went out and made her own, that's so cool! Send me a picture of them when you get a chance.
I'll be posting a picture of the cake in the party post.
