Ask and Answer Game

Uh ………..

I don’t have anything to talk about today. (*GASP* Shocker!) So … how’s about we play a fun little game? Are you in? SUPER! Let’s get started:

Let’s play an ask and answer game.

Here’s how it works:

The person before you has asked a question, please answer that question and then ask a question for the next person to answer. That’s it!

Please, keep it impersonal and ask fun questions.

Got it? Good. Now let’s play:

Question for the first person:

Would you rather buy books or borrow them from a library?

Friday Craft: Boogie Monsters

I’m feeling crafty today, you?

Great! Here’s a fun craft to keep the kiddies busy today:

Boogie Monsters (Okay, I confess, this craft caught my attention because of the boogie/booger reference. I’m shallow – I know this. 😀 )

These zany desktop dancers have the “cents” to stand on their own two feet.

Tacky glue
3 (12-inch) pipe cleaners
2 medium pom-poms (ours were 1 1/2 inches in diameter)
2 googly eyes
Tiny pom-pom
Wooden skewer
Poster tack
2 pennies
2 penny-size buttons

Time needed: About 1 Hour

1. Glue a 7-inch length of pipe cleaner between the pom-poms for arms. Let the glue dry.

2. For legs, fold a 9-inch pipe cleaner length in half and glue the fold to the bottom of the lower pom-pom.

3. Attach each googly eye to a small felt circle, then glue the eyes, felt ears, and a tiny pom-pom nose to the face.

4. For each horn, coil a 4-inch pipe cleaner length around the skewer, then glue the horn onto the head. Fold the ends of each arm to form hands. Glue the feather tail in place.

5. Add a foot to each leg by using a small ball of poster tack to sandwich each end between a button and a penny, as shown.

You GOTTA love Family Fun!!


From the Past: My Brother and Nephew, A

Dave and Alex

Taken this past Easter. My brother and his youngest son. My brother … *shaking head* is the biggest goofball you’ll ever meet. But he’s fun to be around and I never thought he’d make a great father, but he IS – he really is. I should have known he’d easily step into fatherhood though, he’s such a big kid himself, he’s in his element. Give your boys a hug for me, bro.
