Monday's are just so rough. I hate having to try to get back into focus. But on the bright side, just 5 days till the weekend again. This past weekend was pretty quiet. Garret, Alexis and Colby came over and stayed with me some on Friday night for a little while, but didn't get any pictures. I have got to get a camera. By the time I click the sleep button on my phone and slide the lock button on the screen, click on camera and click on flash, my Kodak moments are already just a memory.
I went shopping with my daughter and Shelby and Caleb on Saturday. My daughter has a warped sense of humor and I never know what she is going to say. (And she wonders where her children get it from). Anyway, we stopped at Wendy's for lunch and Caleb who is 9 was picking on his sister Shelby who is 4. Shelby got mad and punched him in the arm. Diana, being a good mommy, said "Shelby, don't hit your brother like that." Then she ruined it by adding "Use your right hand. You are right handed so you can hit harder that way."
Once I came home, it was time to bake some goodies for our Valentine's party at church today. I love to bake and volunteer to do it any chance I can.
I especially love it when I get to use an assortment of my vintage Pyrex in the process.
I made brownie cookies. The recipe is on the side of the box of Duncan Hine Chewy Fudge brownie mix. To make them festive, I stuck a conversation heart in each one when they were done.
I hate making sugar cookies, but I do it anyway because you can put sprinkles on. I mixed the white and red sprinkles together in a sugar shaker and it made them less messy to sprinkle on.
By the way, have you seen the new Oreo Mega Stuf's. Wow.
Remember the old commercial "The kid'll eat the middle of an Oreo first and save the chocolate cookie outside for last." Well, trust me there is plenty of middle to eat on these new Oreo's. They were delicious. (They were also my breakfast Sunday morning, but don't tell anybody.)
I fixed up some Valentine cards for the Pre-K class. Been a long time since I did that!
Megan, a little girl in our class, asked if we could have a picnic. So we had our Valentine party on the floor picnic style. I packed the cookies and a tablecloth in my favorite bag from Thirty-One. It's the Organizing Utility Tote and I use it so much. I need to get a new one in a spring pattern.
I also carried my new Inside Out bag this weekend. Wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but once I got my stuff in it and carried it, I fell in love with it. It is so light weight that I couldn't believe it.
I got some cool Valentine's and can't wait to eat my Whitman's chocolates.
The kids took some Valentine's around to the Senior men's and women's classes and the Ladies Class. Everybody was tickled pink at getting little Valentine's from our class.
We started practicing our Easter music at choir practice last night. It is going to be an easy one to learn. It ends with one of my favorite songs. Well, off to get started on my week. Hope everybody has an easy Monday.
