A Thunderstorm in FEBRUARY in KANSAS!?

Today, it is President's Day. My kids are both home with me today. And they are even playing nicely, ate their lunches, took naps, and are back to playing again. But as I await my hubby to get home, I am listening to a Thunderstorm heading our way outside. Thunder and Lightening in mid February. Really?! This is Wild!! Things have been crazy with the weather this last year. Major Drought (you could fall into a crack in the yard and fall forever), then 6 inches of rain in 2 days. Then one inch of snow last week, and a Thunderstorm Warning today. WHAT?!!?!

Adventures of a Stay at home (working) mom

OK, I have found Pinterest... which means I have SO MANY IDEAS! 

A friend of mine made circle crayons....

 so I jumped on board and made these...

So, I added a cute little saying... and TADA! Cason's Preschool Valentine's are done.
Now, keep in mind that I did a little test run the day before. After a huge mess, a oven fire, and 4 hours of Oven doing a self-cleaning (thank the lord for this invention). 
I had a good idea of what to NOT do.

So here is the what you SHOULD do...

Reheat Oven to 360
Find a pan that is the shapes you want. (Mine was a sucker/cookie sheet mold)
Strip the crayons of the wrappers (regular size crayons only, fat crayons don't melt in the middle)
Crop crayons and mix and match as you wish into mold.
Foil a cookie sheet to place under the mold sheet (just in case)
And place in oven until melted. Took about 10 minutes.
Take out and let cool, then flip mold and pop out crayons.

Another Book that is after my heart

So, over a year ago, I received this AMAZING book from my sis in law.

I LOVE IT SO MUCH, that I sent it traveling. Alas, I have never heard from it since the first mother it made it too. (thanks to Citymom- but where has my favorite book gone???)
So, I found out just this morning that those crazy moms that wrote "Run like a Mother" now have a NEW book coming out soon.....

"Train like a mother" 

Who is going to add this to their wish list???
