Sleepover Pillow Card

Here are the pillow invitations that I made for Laurens Sleepover party.
They were so simple. I would say the hardest part was the ribbon.

My little baby will be turning 9 next Thursday. That makes me soooo sad. But, next Friday, there will be a total of 7 girls in my house. EEK! Thank goodness George is taking off work. :) I have some idea of what we are going to do, but I know when it comes down to it, I am going to be flying by the seat of my pants. hehehe

Weather days off

Okay, I really must explain the next two pictures...... But if you have boys, you'll understand.

The day before these pictures, Josh was sick with the flu, he had been sleeping ALL day and night. So he was primed and ready to go the next day. Miss Jenna was over with homemade soup in hand, well long story short, Josh HAD to be his rotten self. And I had my camera.

As we at lunch, Miss Jenna told us about making it snow. She gave us instructions and we were right on that! How cool! You can only do it when the temperature is below -0. But, you fill a normal sized coffee cup 1/2 full of water. Place it in the microwave for about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes and go directly outside and throw the water away from you into the air.

In the photo below, I wasn't happy with just the cup of water, and after doing some chores around the house and thinking how cool it was, I thought of a better idea. I took a squirt bottle and filled it with the hot water and used a hot mitt. That allowed just the right amount of water to come out for the snow to form. COOL TRICK!
