Finally I have something to post. I have been working hard on being crafty. I decided to make some hats. I already sent one to my niece in NY and thought about making some for my 2 other nieces. They will be moving to somewhere cold soon so a nice, cute hat will keep them warm. I also decided to make a hat and scarf for my Dad. I always want him to be warm so it will keep his neck, head and heart warm because it was stitched with loved!
I am also going to make burp clothes and a bib for Peter's second cousin who is having a baby. I thought I would at least show the fabric and then will post what they look like once I'm done.

Kids response to Dads do....

The other day I asked my students what their daddies did. I love what first and second graders say. They always seem to entertain me. I wanted to share this; it's word for word:
"Oh my dad, he works. He works and work.He drives a tight truck."
"He works on satellites at Raytheon."
"He goes to work everyday and doesn't get time off. He drives a truck. It goes fast at 14 miles."
"My daddy goes to CBS to make shows."
"He works at Home People." She was close..Home Depot.
"He fixes cars with tools."
"He works on computers and types letters."
"My dad works far. He drives and goes on the freeway to go to work."
My dad works in the office. He drives a big, huge truck. He works with Mommy."

I had such a wonderful birthday! It couldn't have been any better. I got to see my cute nieces, had a delicious dinner, got my GPS that I wanted and then celebrated with my cute little students. I invited them to my birthday party the week before and they were all really excited! They sang me "Happy birthday" and we all shared some pizza and cake. Later that night, Peter and I went to a nice place for some dinner...I had a really good strawberry martini.

My birthday continued all the way until Friday (my birthday was on Feb.2 which was a Monday and the day after the Superbowl). I decided to bake cupcakes, make deviled eggs, dates stuffed with blue cheese wrapped in bacon, and a chive cream cheese, cucumber, tomato dish. The food was great. I had it at my friend's new house and guests were from my old and new job. It was nice that now my friends all know each other. It ended up that one of the my new friends went to high school with the home owner's husband. It's such a small world.

To continue a nice, relaxing birthday month, I will be sitting all day, knitting a hat for myself, my niece and my dad, make a purse using an old shirt and duct tape. I love spending a rainy, cloudy, cold day inside being crafty!
