It's Dr. Seuss Week!

I just love Dr. Seuss and all things Seussian - so this is my fave time! Kolbi is kinda out growing it but at least Seuss Week is still a big deal at Riley's school. One of my PTO duties is to decorate a bulletin board. I've been kind of lax on it but thought I'd spiffy it up with some Seuss week decor. So I've been printing, cutting and drawing all weekend for my board re-do. Since I had all the stuff I decided to decorate our window tonight as a kick off to Seuss week.
Riley pitched in and rounded up all his Dr. Seuss books to decorate the ledge. Then we decided to make a Seuss dinner! I went for green spaghetti since I had promised Kolbi we would have spaghetti, her favorite, for dinner tonight.
How crazy is that?
Make no mistake, Riley would NOT eat anything green. He had a plain 'ol hotdog but he did look at our green spaghetti dinner and appreciate it.

A Little This...A Little That

I decided it was time for my Valentine wreath to come down and my front door looked very lonely. So I made this burlap wreath that everyone in blog-land has been making. I got my idea from this blog but I've seen them on a ton of blogs so the inspiration is out there. I made a burlap banner too (so cute - thanks Tatertots & Jello) but I think I'm going to add a few more pieces to it before posting the pics.
Last weekend we were at the mall and I let Riley talk me into getting him one of those Zhu Zhu pets that are everywhere! I was buying jewelry for Kolbi at Claires and he was so bummed that there was nothing for him there until he saw those little hamsters. He did insist for about 10 minutes that they were guinea pigs until I pointed out where it said hamster on the box. Anyway, I have to admit they are kinda cute - and fake, so no pet mess!
Also last week, Justin took Kolbi to get her ears stretched. She actually didn't even have to go thru any pain since she wears big 'ol dang-ly earrings and her ears holes were already big. They just popped the bigger size in. She has been wanting this for a while though and was so excited!
Last but so not least, I shot this pic when I got back from CHA. They are showing off the chef hats and suckers that I brought back for them - but more importantly - they are hugging!

Happy Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a great Valentine day. It seemed like it lasted for two weeks at my house!
I made cupcakes and cookies and joined Riley's class for their party on Thursday. Then the kids had a 4 day weekend - whew!
Then Kolbi rounded up a bunch of her friends and they went to see Valentine's Day at the movies. That was Sunday so, I spent a large part of my day picking up and dropping off kids. I made them all pose for a pic outside of the theater.
I made these yummy brownie ice cream sandwiches for our special dessert and let me just say that they ARE yummy! I seriously could eat 10!
Finally, here's a few shots of Nichole, Chris, Justin & I on Saturday night. We went bowling and then out for ice cream after (I'm sensing an ice cream addiction here).

Several Weeks Later...

Well, in case you thought I'd been abducted - I did come back from Anaheim! As usual, I take way too many pictures at CHA and come back wishing I could just lock myself in a room and scrapbook for days. But of course, no luck on that - it was back to the real world. I made a heart collage of my favorite CHA pictures below.

and it wouldn't be a trade show without getting my picture with TIM! :)
