A craft stash is for

5 Oct

When you decide at noon that the girls coming to your 10-year-old’s birthday party at 4pm that day need a party favor to take home.

Then you get out the piece of blue fleece left over from making a pillow for cousin Emily last year,

the ribbon from a box of lace that a sweet granny at church gave you when she decided to reduce her stash,

the fiber fill stuffing your friend gave you when it was left over from reupholstering a chair,

googley-eyes left over from a preschool project,

And E6000 glue because glue.

Enlist the help of your minions, and less than 2 hours later, you have blue cuteness.

Just enough time to clean-up the house…or catch a nap before eight 10-year-olds descend upon you en masse.

Key Lime Pie is 7

4 Oct

Key Limer Pie is seven!  Where has the time gone?
Her favorite song is “Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree.”  She also loves “Everything is Awesome” from the Lego Movie.

Her favorite foods are Raman Noodles and Macaroni & Cheese (from the store.  None of the yucky homemade from scratch stuff.) 

Her favorite color is baby blue.


Her favorite things to do are play Pokemon outside and board games like Dixit! and Blokus and card games like Love Letter and Munchkin.

For her birthday she got a whole bag of 20 something tiny Pokemon figurines to have battles with.  Also she got her very own bag of gummy bears.

She requested cinnamon rolls (the delicious homemade kind) for her birthday dessert.  

Key Lime Pie is Six

5 Oct

Key Lime Pie turned 6.  She went to Kindergarten this fall.  After school started, I was feeling pretty weird.  It took me awhile, but I finally realized that weird feeling was loneliness.  She has been my buddy for 5 1/2 years and now she isn’t home to talk to me or beg me to play Uno and Monopoly and Parcheesee.  She loves Kindergarten and her teacher, and she loves to have me check Class Dojo every day to see all the good things she did at school.  

She loves Uno so much that even if she can win, she will pretend she doesn’t have the right card and draw a whole bunch to keep the game going.

What is you favorite color?  Orange

What is your favorite song?  Hot Cross Buns 

What is your favorite food?  Hot dog

What is your favorite candy? Swedish fish or crabby patties 

What is your favorite game? Uno

What is your favorite thing to do?  Play in the snow

“I’m the real batman so I don’t have to take off my mask [at the dinner table].”


Key Lime Pie

8 Jan


Key Lime Pie turned 5 in October.

She is as wild and enthusiastic about life as ever.

Her favorite food is oatmeal (uncooked) with milk and raisins and honey, Ramen Noodles, and Macaroni and Cheese. Unlike Banana Cream Pie, she refuses to eat pretty much everything else.

She loves toy horses and playing baby ponies.

Her favorite thing is to go play with friends or at the park, but she will settle for playing Super Mario Smash Brothers Brawl on the wii or UNO with me.

She is my only child who truly likes putting puzzles together.
