what the h-e-double-popsicle-sticks?!

I’ve been avoiding coming on here because there just isn’t much to write about… but it’s not like I had a ton to write about when I decided to start the blog in the first place!  So here I am, hoping that if I just post something it’ll create some motivation to write more.  Even if it is just silly stuff.

I’m busier than I’m used to, which is both good and bad.  It’s bad because well, I’m not used to being busy and good because I’m not used to being busy!  And you know, most of it isn’t even happening right now, it’s mostly the two weeks before Christmas when everything is happening. But we’ve got a few appointments this week and it no matter how well I try to plan around the appointments, our schedule for the day always gets all muffed up and by the end of the night it’s pure chaos.

The PTO Polar Express event is this weekend and for some reason I’m a bit stressed out about it.  It’s not like I’m in charge of it or anything so there’s no real pressure on me.  And I know it’ll go well.  There are some amazing ladies who have really done an awesome job getting donations and really just working their tails off to make sure that the event is a success.  So all I really have to do is bake a cupcakes for the bake sale and get my craft stuff organized and ready to go.  Oh, and finish the snowflakes.

When I came up with the ideas for the craft tables I thought it would be fun to have the kids decorate popsicle stick snowflakes that they can use as ornaments(thank you, pinterest!)  Since most of the kids are pre-k and kinder it just made sense for the snowflakes to be assembled beforehand so all they have to do is decorate them.  So that means that me and my trusty hot glue gun have been busy gluing a few hundred popsicle sticks together – and burning some fingers along the way.  Somebody didn’t do the math before coming up with this genius idea!  By the end of the week I should be able to finish up the 400 that I think we’ll need.  So.many.pop.sicle.sticks! It’ll be worth it though!  At least I hope it will!  We’re also doing bead and pipe cleaner ornaments (pinterest again).  The kids should be able to do these on their own, or at least with a little help, so there’s not much I need to do beforehand for these.

Other than that, it’s business as usual; laundry, cleaning, dishes, diapers, coloring, building blocks, all that glamorous stuff!
