Be very afraid.
On Friday before Easter our son stopped over with our Grands. And we had a Grand time!
One of the things that had us laughing super hard was my efforts to teach our weiner dog, Oskar, to sing. It's coming along. And if I get brave I'll figure out how to make a video of it...it is actually totally hilarious. And Oskar continued to make us laugh when the girls played with bubbles in the front yard. He raced around the yard knocking everyone over and trying to bite the bubbles. It was also totally hilarious.
... and speaking of bubbles...remember how I was telling you about the chalk and crayon stuff at the preschool and how I disparaged the person "teaching" playdough? Well...just to make up for my playdough bashing I thought I'd share the Kool Aid playdough recipe we make up for the preschool.
Kool Aid Playdough
Mix together 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, two packages of unsweetened koolaid (use the same color)
Quickly add: 3 tablespoons vegetable oil AND 2 cups boiling water.
Stir together quickly and thoroughly and knead until no longer sticky. Smells yummy and makes great colors.
This doesn't shred apart as much as regular playdough and it smells wayyyy better. For those of you that don't like playdough you might find yourself more fond of it if you try this.
And speaking of finding...
See? Did I tell you this was a great natural segue of thoughts post or what?
I'm not sure why I thought I had to wait until Sunday night to find a winner from this weeks Alphabe-Thursday giveaway for an autographed copy of Julie Schulers spellbinding book... The copy I ordered of this book came on Friday ...ummm....Julie...cover your eyes for a second here(she gets annoyed with me for getting so excited about her talent) ... the illustrations in this book are beyond amazing. Mr.Jenny and I kept turning the pages...astounded.
If you didn't win this book you might consider ordering it by clicking here to go to Julie's Blurb ordering page. This is not a book for children but it is something you really should think about adding to your collection. I messed up and had my copy sent here, which means I had to turn around and mail it to Julie so she can autograph it which is going to be important because this girl is going to be famous. OK, Julie, you can uncover your eyes now.
And speaking of uncovering...
Yea. The master of the segue...
I asked Mr. Random Org to help me uncover the winner for the book...
