The Weekend Begins Early

We have a fun-filled next few days here at our house.

Tonight Josh is in a P.E. show at school after the PTSA Meeting. I'm not really sure what that entails, but I'll be sure to take pictures. I do know he has to wear a red t-shirt and has been singing, "I like to move it, move it. I like to move it, move it. MOVE IT!" for about 2 weeks now. So we shall see!

Tomorrow at Josh's school is the annual school sock-hop. We went last year and it was lots of fun, but we can't go this year. It's also Rich's birthday. And Josh has a birthday party/sleep over on Saturday night so we decided that was enough excitement for one weekend.

He's a bit disappointed but when we gave him the option of Sock Hop or Birthday-Sleep Over, he chose the birthday party. The party on Saturday is at a roller skating rink -- it should be funny to see Josh on roller skates. After the roller rink he's going to the birthday boy's house.

And like I said, tomorrow is Rich's birthday. He's going to try and knock off work a bit early so we can take the kids to the playground for a bit. Then take them out to dinner. Rich and I are going to have steak at home later, but we thought it would be fun to do something for the kids too. Plus then Josh will feel like he gets to do something special instead of the sock hop.

Sam and I are busy today making crayon hearts. I borrowed the idea from CrazedParent. Go check out her finished product on her blog and she's got the instructions too. She had a warning about cracking fingernails trying to get the paper off the crayons. I avoided this by splitting the paper with a knife very carefully. The paper just fell off.

Our first batch is cooling now. I can't wait to see the finished product. I'll post pictures of them when we're done.

Sam and I also went to Michael's Arts & Crafts to get stuff to make Valentines for the kids' classes. I decided to just decorate gift bags and put the crayons inside the gift bags. I may also add a sucker in there, I don't know. Just depends on how many crayons we make!


  1. I can't wait to see the pictures of Josh's Move-it program!

    I saw CP's crayon project - that is such a great idea!

    It's early but, Happy Birthday to Rich!

  2. That's really cool! (the bags/crayons)!

    Happy Birthday Rich!! : )

  3. Sounds like you are having so much fun, i can't wait until my kids get to do all this things at school.

    And Happy B-day Rich!! have a fun day. =0)

  4. Those are the cutest things! I love the idea! I think we might do those now. We have a vday party to attend for our playgroup.

    What kind of mold is it at Michael's? Is it a candy mold?

  5. Sounds like a great weekend ahead! Hope it turned out that way! Can't wait to see how the art project turned out! Thanks for sharing!
