We are having another snow day here. SERIOUSLY, WINTER. STOP IT. I was hoping that the storm might pass us by but just in case I made banana muffins last night and washed and cut up a container of strawberries and left them in the fridge. This morning when everyone was up and SO! EXCITED! and also STARVING, MOM! I got to tell them to grab a muffin while I laid in bed for a while longer. :) (I have been making THIS banana muffin recipe and they are so good. I think it's the melted butter. I also add a teaspoon of vanilla, just because.)
Yesterday Nicky and I went grocery shopping, stopped at the mall to ride the escalators (while I waited for a supply list from Patrick) and then hit Menards for ceiling tiles, etc. Those tiles are big and heavy and once the cart was full I rammed it into the back of my ankle and dropped the F Bomb OUT LOUD in front of a Menards employee. What?? Can you believe it? I can't. But it happened and I apologized and he just laughted. It really hurt. Nicky was oblivious. (I hope.) :)
Here is a fort Ruby built in the living room last weekend:
Pinhole Planetariums (easy and they really liked it) and then find their constellation on this vintage map of the Heavens that I've had for years. I am totally framing this. I love it. We also had them make Sky Wheels (you'll want to click on the PDF file that is linked) and James gave a little presentation on Jupiter. It was cute.
Kate Spade New York Things We Love from the library and this image was inside. I LOVE IT! It's so fun and so cute. I want to print a copy for my wall.
