My husband has threatened to send the boys to Rainbow Loom rehab.
Who has a good wet mop?
Our house is 95% hardwood (old) floors. It gets swiffered nearly daily, but I need a good alternative to hands and knees wet-washing. Anyone have anything good?
Ya know how some people pull the wishbone on Thanksgiving, my sister got to pull a gray hair from my head instead...
I wrote this over a year ago, so I guess that's not bad for gray-hair-finding frequency, but ahh!
Yesterday, I wore pants that I hadn't worn in a while, and quickly remembered why. I had the hem tucked under so I could wear with flats and the 'extra' reached more than halfway to my knee! Even with my highest heels, they'd still be a least 4" too long. I know I have short legs, but are the average person's legs really 8-10" longer than mine?
What are you most looking forward to eating today?
I'm usually a sweets girls, but I think greenbean casserole may have the lead!
Elf on the Shelf figure from Rainbow Loom! (Not perfect, but you see the resemblance, right?)
This may be how our elf arrives this year...
We've had an elf for a long time-- several years, since before I knew what it even was. Despite the endless resources of elf ideas, we keep it simple. Our elf, as the name suggests, sits on a shelf or other high up place each day, watching over. And each night, he flies back to the North Pole to report the events of the day.
It's just enough magic to keep the faith, and just enough simplicity to keep mommy's sanity.
Rainbow loom is still super popular in our house. A couple weeks ago, the boys found a YouTube video describing how to make mini-figures, and each made a superhero (Hulk and Spiderman).
So that gave me an idea...why not combine two of our favorite things into one? It's not an exact match, but for an elf made out of rubberbands, it'll do.
And the fact that it was made by our elf? Magical ;)
And look! It's Elf-approved!
I don't know about your house, but after 6 months, Rainbow Loom is still a huge hit in our house. (I get sick of seeing it, but really there are much worse things they could be obsessed with.)
