Emma had a pajama party at school today to learn the letter P. She was very excited about wearing her p.j.'s to school! She takes after me in that she could wear her p.j.'s all day every day if she could! She wore her red fuzzy slippers that Grandma Pipi made and I guess the teachers LOVED them! Emma said her music teacher asked if she could touch them. LOL! When I picked Emma up her teacher said she had the cutest p.j.'s ever and the best slippers. She was shocked when I told her my Mom made them. Get the knitting needles out Grandma because I think I'm going to have to order slippers for teacher gifts this year! :-)
Emma in her Christmas p.j.'s. I found these fleece bottoms last year on clearance at Old Navy for $2. I wish I had a pair. They have Christmas sayings all over them and they match a p.j. top that she already had. She couldn't wait to get to school in her p.j.'s and she must have worn her slippers all day at school.
I called the popcorn orders in to the Fargo office this morning so I thought I had all of that out of my hair. It just popped into my head late this afternoon that I forgot to order the patches on the prize sheet that everyone gets for participating! UGH! I'm going to have to call them tomorrow to make sure they get those added to the order form.
Sometimes sitting around doing nothing is a bad thing for me. It gives me time to think, and often times thinking causes me more work. I decided to try and get our Girl Scout troop and our Cub Scout den together after school on Friday to "Trick-or-Treat-for-Others-to-Eat". So far there are 4 of our Scouts (including my 2) that are planning to go out trick-or-treating for non-perishable food items that we will then donate to the Emergency Food Pantry or Ruth Meier's Hospitality House. I haven't heard from 3 yet, so we may end up with a few more. I want my kids to learn to have a giving heart. I don't know what Mom and Dad did special with me, to make me a "giver", but I hope I can do the same for my kids. I'm going to have them wear their costumes and then put their Scout uniforms over the top so we can be easily identified as a Scout group.
Tonight before I came down to blog, I fed Sid a couple of crickets. I had the camera nearby so I thought I would get a few pictures of him. They turned out pretty good so I wanted to post them for you all to see. I think we're feeding him too much because he seems to be getting fatter.
