Cold & Dreary

That's pretty much what the weather has been like all week here- cold and dreary. Blah!

To beat the blahs we've been staying in the house watching movies- Thomas & Friends, Barney, and others.

We've worked on a few craft things like Ni Hao, Kai-lan paper bag puppets. These were pretty fun to make. It required a little advance planning, because I had to cut out all the parts. But I did that last night, so we were all set to go this morning. It provided about an hour or putting things together. We let the glue all dry while we ate lunch. Then after lunch we had hours minutes of fun playing with the puppets. But still it was something for both of us to do.

Do you know what we just discovered today? One of Zachariah's favorite stories, the Princess & the Frog, has been made into an animated Disney movie. It's coming out before Christmas. We just checked out the website and it looks really cute. We'll have to go see it when it's in the theater.

I have 4 different giveaways going on at PS Mom Reviews right now. Don't forget to go sign up for things. There is the new Shaun the Sheep: Little Sheep of Horrors DVD just right for Halloween, Barney: Halloween Party DVD for the younger kids for Halloween (Zachariah loves this one about fall/autumn too), the brand-new Strawberry Shortcake movie: Sky's the Limit DVD that I have 5 copies of to give away, and I also reviewed a nice organic baby shampoo and sunscreen and have one of each to giveaway from Earth Baby. I have a few more giveaways to come. And I am looking for more ideas of things to review and giveaway for the upcoming holidays. Make sure you check in on the action.

So, help a girl out. Tell me what your Friday has been like or your weekend plans. Mine...none. I need to live vicariously through you. Thanks. And of course, Happy Friday!

Well, our Friday was fairly routine; grocery shopping, little housework. Although we did mix it up a bit by going to the library. We don't have much planned for tomorrow until the evening. We are doing the "Light the Night" walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. We do it every year and the kids enjoy the lit balloons. I hope you find something fun to do :)

Friday night is pizza-and-a-movie night. (As long as I don't leave the pizzas in the freezer here at work again.)

Tomorrow I plan on getting MORE fall cleaning done, finishing knitting the HAT that matches the mittens I just finished for Izzy, and sewing together the tote bags we made in GS out of old t-shirts. And I'm hoping to get some sort of walk/hike in.

Sunday: more cleaning and laundry. And a GS meeting. And then I shall probably pass out from the exhaustion.

Exciting, no?

Sorry I can't help. We're as dreary and yukky as you are. It's totally affected my spirit, too. I feel like we totally got ripped off from having a fall. Wahwahwah. Shall I whine some more??

Our Friday is pretty boring... tomorrow we're going to the pumpkin patch we visit every year though. Fingers crossed it doesn't rain.

I had lots of fun plans starting today that all got derailed last night with a nasty case of strep throat. So now my weekend consists of sleeping when I can, in other words when hubby is home and not studying!

I'm not help. My kids are sick and we're worried about spreading germs so this is Day 4 of being stuck in the house 24/7. It's cold and dreary here, too, so I don't mind too much. No fun plans today and my DH is out watching the NLCS game.

Our weather is better than yours, but we're still stuck in the house thanks to illness. We're hoping to make it to the local pumpkin patch tomorrow, but who knows.

Hope your weekend is better than ours!

I have an Usborne party tomorrow and then have to take Harper to a princess birthday party. We've been doing lots of movie watching too - this weather stinks!
