Joy School Story

Today was my turn to teach Joy School. We learned about creativity and imagination. Each child drew a picture, without consulting the others, and then we put the pictures together and the kids (ages 3,4,5) told me the story. I thought it turned out super cute. So, I present to you "The man, the monster, the treasure, and the beach" By Our Joy School Class

"Once upon a time, there was a sad man. Then, he found a treasure chest and was very happy. When he came home, he found out his house was on fire! So he left his house, and followed the path back to the treasure chest. But, instead of treasure, he saw a monster! Then man told the monster "be nice, I love you!" Then, he moved ot the beach and lived happily ever after in the sunshine! " THE END

Today I made...

Jedi Robes. We are going to Disneyland soon and I have been sewing lots of princess dresses for my daughter. My son felt left out, so this is what I came up with. I used twin sized sheets, because you get a lot more fabric for cheaper than buying it by the yard. I didn't use a pattern or anything, I just kind of MacGyver'ed it. This pin was the closest how to I could find to what I did in case you are wanting to make them.

I also made these amazing breakfast cookies. I made two batches. One, as directed with peanut butter. The other... with Nutella instead of pb. The pb ones were good. The Nutella ones were A.FRICKIN.MAZING. AND they are GF!! Heavens opened. Angels sang. I had a little mini moment there. Try it. Super yummy. You can see my daughter's hand trying to steal another from the counter. She has good taste, that one. I always knew she was my favorite. =)
