Kidtivities - Halloween Treat Bags

Bean and I made some treat bags for her class for their Halloween party.  Bean did most of the work.

She filled up each bag with some candy.

We made Tootsie Pop Ghosts for each bag, too.  Bean's assistant wrapped each Tootsie Pop with a tissue and tied it up with a piece of ribbon.  Then Bean drew the faces on each one.

Here's one where Bean is showcasing her handiwork WHILE also taste-testing the goodies.  She is a multi-tasker.

These are a few more examples of her artistry.

A finished product to display.

We really hope all of Bean's classmates enjoy the goodies.  A lot of fun and laughter went into the making of them.  Oh also....

Words of Wisdom

I find quotes all over all the time that I mean to write down and share with Bean or others later on.  I found this one today and knew I wanted to put it here so that Bean would be able to see it later on in life.

"I hope you live a life you're proud of.  If you find that you are not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."

The Excuse Form

Now that Bean is in Pre-K and not just "drop off" daycare, if you are late, you have to stop and fill out a tardy slip explaining the tardiness.  Bean got her first tardy slip last week when her Daddy dropped her off.

Today Bean received her second tardy slip through no fault of her own.  When I was handed the slip, I decided to be completely honest as to why we were late.  I wasn't able to take a picture of the actual slip because well duh, I was running late, but here is the actual reason I gave.

Student's Name:  Bean
Date:  10-19-12
Time:  8:03 am

Reason for Tardy:  Men are dumb.  A man, clearly showing his lack of intellect, turned off my alarm instead of his.  Not correcting his mistake and further proving my theory, he failed to reset said alarm so that his wife and child would wake up on time.  As I said, men are dumb.

Sorry but I had to be honest.  My Mamma told me to never lie to the Principal.

Picture Post - The Rides

Founder's Day 2012

The Bean Life

Wow!  It's been awhile since I last blogged.  I'd love to say it is because of some really good reason.  But it isn't.  Life has just gotten busy and I've gotten busy and I haven't made the time.  I think that happens to everyone at different times.

Bean is enjoying school.  Her class got to see a fire truck and police car up close this week and she's been jabbering about that all week.  Halloween is approaching.  I was going to make her a costume this year but she and I stumbled across the cutest one in a local store and I she wanted it.

I am still working on Bean's table and chairs.  I'm hoping they will be finished in time to give them to her own children.  Actually, they are almost sanded all the way back to the wood.  I tried to paint over the old paint but Hubz told me I was doing a crappy job and needed to sand instead.  He didn't offer to help you notice.  He only shared his opinion.  What a guy!  Hopefully, I can finish the sanding this weekend and start the priming and painting.

We found some pictures that hadn't been shared with you all.  I think these are from Easter!  Yes, Easter!  LOL

She loves that dress.  She wears it around now and plays dress up.  I have quite a few pictures to post here and hope to do that soon.  Even if there are no readers left, this blog is for Bean and I want her to have them.

How is life going for you?  Anything exciting happening?
