We had two parties this weekend (Yes that's me chasing Nick in a bumper car)
And Sunday evening we were invited to a private party at a local Moon Bounce place to help decorate the party room. Nick and I had fun making giant hand flowers. I even managed to get some Christmas presents finished (I'll show you them soon:)

Here's how to build your own.
- Gravel or small stone
- Clear container
- Activated charcoal (the kind for aquarium filters)
- Paper (for a funnel)
- Fresh potting soil
- Small succulent plants
- Ceramic figurine
Step 1- Add gravel as first layer of drainage system. Carefully spread out a 1 1/2" layer of activated charcoal over gravel.
Step 2- Using the paper as a funnel, add a layer of potting soil. Choose small plants like succulents. (Cacti and Jade I used Aloe)
Step 3- Add 3- 4 ounces of water to get started. Add stones as a pathway and a ceramic figurine.

(This is for the house)
(Something for Hubby's desk at work.)
Speaking of proud moments.... I told my son that he could pick one small item for under a dollar. I figured that he would find some small toy instead he found this.
He went up to the man selling it and asked how much it was. The nice man smiled and said "For you it will cost a high five." So he high fives the man and tucked his treasure in his shirt pocket. When we got home I looked it up and found it selling for 20$! I'm so proud I might cry!

Today was Nick's first day of Pre-School. I'm happy for him and sad for me. Last year he went to a 3 day program. I was working in the same building so I was able to see him at recess everyday. This year he is at a new school 4 days a week. I was so bored for 3 hours I actually cleaned!
He had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back tomorrow. We also had our annual first day of school ice cream after I picked him up. My heart sank a little when I realized every first day of school ice cream we have, means that my baby is growing up!
I guess I'm going to have to come up with some new hobbies to keep me busy maybe I'll try making the worlds largest lint ball;)
