Science Fair Book Club

Today I’m over at Arizona Mama sharing our family book club event for Science Fair.  If your family likes books with espionage, levitating frogs and the Weiner Mobile this might be the book for you.

Be sure to stop by and say hi!

Friday Favorites: December 16

Can you believe Christmas Eve is a week from tomorrow?  I’m wishing I felt a little more prepared, how about you?  I’ve had a few moments (hours…days) of feeling overwhelmed, but I think I’m back on track and in better spirits.  The shift in attitude has helped me enjoy more of what’s going on this week.  Here are a few of my favorites.

  • We ditched another responsibility, ate dinner in the living room and watched one of our favorite Christmas movies, The Muppet Christmas Carol.
  • Yesterday’s thoughtful gifts.
  • We finally finished reading Science Fair and had our family book club.
  • We created some Christmas thumbprint art.
  • It’s party time, check out my Classroom Christmas Party plan at Arizona Mama.  These ideas would work for most Christmas gatherings.

Other bloggers are having a blast too.  Here are some awesome posts I found.

  • I love fudge and this Rocky Road version from Chef in Training sounds delicious!
  • Celebrations at Home’s Egg Nog Punch would be a great addition to a holiday gathering.
  • Got Sketch continues their Twelve Days of Christmas with 2 scrapbook sketches.
  • I {heart} Naptime shared some free printables to help you with your last minute gift giving.  Last week, I used one for gifts for a few ladies from church from Chocolate on my Cranium.

What’s been your favorite this week?

Friday Favorites: August 26

It’s the last Friday in August, so the heat has to break soon – right?  Please?  I keep trying to remind myself how nice it was in June and the cool weather will return. Even though the heat isn’t my favorite, there’s plenty of other enjoyable things to distract me.

  • A giveaway!  I haven’t hosted a giveaway in a while; it’s nice to give something back.
  • Good books.  I’m about half way through the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and I just started Science Fair for our family book club.
  • My grandson outgrowing his newborn clothes – OK, that one’s my favorite because it’s fun to watch him grow, and not my favorite because the time is going by so quickly!
  • My daughter and I started a recipe blog to keep all our family’s favorite recipes in spot.  I could have used this all those times I was at someone’s house, wishing I had a specific recipe with me.  Thanks to Monzanita, who has done all the work, there’s a few recipes up.  Look out for more to come.

There’s plenty of other folks having a good time in the blogosphere too!

  • Your Homebased Mom has to be having fun making this Cinnamon Roll Cake!
  • I’m with Poca Cosa and ready for fall.  Her Candy Corn Milkshake could be the ticket.
  • The Language of Flowers is another book on my list after reading Booking Mama’s review.
  • I’ve been working on a sewing project with one of my kiddos.  She wants to learn to sew and I’m trying to teach her with my limited skills.  The Mother Huddle listed an awesome directory of sewing tips that I think I will find immensely helpful in my efforts!

What’s keeping your mind off the heat, or the storm if you live back east?
