You know how your momma always said if you didn't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all? I'm having a hard time saying anything at all tonight ;)
There is a house across the street from me, and a few doors down, that used to have one of those plastic lit penguins as part of their holiday decorations. The best part was that the penguin was always high up in the tree in their front yard. Last year the penguin never showed up. This year, still no penguin :( I really miss the penguin in the tree.
Made progress on the cleaning up list for the week today. Sifting through my accumulated pile of stuff-that-made-it-out-of-the-car-and-JUST-inside-the-door. Everyone has a pile like that, right? So far I'm finding some decent coupons, stickers, catalogs (about half to keep and half to 'recycle'), and Maggie's sunglasses!
Found two delicious looking recipes for using the Betty Crocker cookie mixes I got for my House Party this weekend - Snickerdoodles with the sugar cookie mix and Peanut Butter Candy Bars with the peanut butter cookie mix! YUM!
Maggie did the most adorable thing for my parents last weekend. She kept saying, "Nice to meet you," and shaking their hands, then saying, "Good bye!" and waving as she walked away with her suitcase. Do you think she'd do it for her dad or me? Nope, of course not. But as I was making dinner tonight I heard, "Nice to meet you," and looked into the living room to see her standing on her toy box in front of the mirror on the wall, shaking hands with our life-size penguin decoration. Goofy kid.
