Happy Star Wars Day!

My traditional repost from years past:

*update for this year* Tomato is not wearing his T-shirt today, but instead is decorating his potato car for the potato derby tonight at church!  We are also making deserts for that event, but not star wars themed....  and we have a new link for you! Piano Guys!

Happy Star Wars day to you all! May the Fourth be with you always! :)

I'm not quite sure how we will celebrate (aside from Little Tomato wearing his star wars shirt - he thinks it's really cool that it has a darth vader helmet on the front - and back!)

There will probably be game playing (lego starwars and lego clonewars) and perhaps some movie watching, and I'm almost positive we'll be playing my kids favorite you-tube song. Although I don't think the festivities will continue into food (I'm just not big on decorated cupcakes - I do like puns though, anyone got anything normal I can make that can pun its way into star wars territory?) we'll try to have a day without any fear, anger, or hate and with ewoks lots of singing and you can sing along.


Let us know how you celebrate this fun day!

Music stuck in my head

Songs that got stuck in my head on the drive home last night...

Like any of them?  What's stuck in your head?

Ten on Tuesday: Valentine's Day

10 Fun Ways to Celebrate Valentine's Day:

1. Give a gift

2. Make cards (especially with kids, or with good tools - not necessarily both at the same time)

3. Decorate cookies

4. Preform a service

5. Do an anonymous service

6. Decorate the house in pinks and reds and sparkles (which I don't do!)

7.  Give a hug

8. Give a kiss

9. Tell someone you love them

10. ...and of course, I wouldn't say no to breakfast in bed!

Let's just pretend...

Let's just pretend those last three months didn't happen...

or rather, that they did happen, and got posted about, and life moves on! (I obviously can't do a good job posting regularly right now, I'll work on posting randomly for now, and work on regularly later!)

When I last left you I mentioned I had finished a sweater for my oldest daughter.

Since then I have made at least 4 baby shower gifts:



I learned a new technique for ragrugs and made a little trivet...


and I also finished spinning some yarn.

Each of these may or may not get a post of their own soon.

Sweater Done

The sweater is now done!

I finished the needed baby shower gifts on Thursday and was able to finish the sweater for 'Lily' this afternoon - I put it off so long and it only took an evening and another day (of on and off work).

Pictures on Monday!
