Playdate Crafts

I am going to have 6 little boys over at 10 AM for a playdate - lord help me!   I am sure they will spend the bulk of time running in the backyard, but to be safe I am prepared with crafts!

This is where amazon prime came to the rescue again.  I have been so slammed between work and personal commitments that I had zip time to get to the store to get any crafts so I ordered everything Wednesday and had it in hand by Friday.  LOVE, love, love amazon prime!

metallic scratch leaves, fall-themed bracelet beading, superhero mask kit - hopefully something there will entertain

My packed weekend just became even more crowded.  My oldest's football team won at the playoffs so tomorrow we have the championship game. 

Tomorrow we also have his first ever real basketball game.  All the parents pitch in to help run the home games so tomorrow I may be working the kitchen (snacks/drinks) instead of socializing with the other parents and watching the game, but I am still really looking forward to it.

Finally want to record this week's parent/teacher conference meetings.  Whatever they tell you in prek about their personality/work habits follow through every year from my experience so far.  My oldest is super social and chatty, but not really into the work.   My middle was described as a little old man who takes his work very seriously.  How did they come out of the same womb?!

I also want to note that a dad from school told me his daughter talks about my oldest all the time and had over a bunch of her third grade girlfriends and they were all talking/giggling about robby....oh boy I am in for trouble!

Sibling Matching Holiday Clothes

Excited to take the kids to Santa at some point over the weekend.  I usually buy my three boys matching outfits from Janie and Jack for all the holidays, but sadly my oldest is too tall for their clothes this year.  Luckily I found chasingfireflies has matching clothes which fit all 3 (whew!).   Bought them nice pants, button downs and vests - can't wait to see how they look. Until the 29th you can use promo code 4315002R2AD2 to get 20% off + free shipping.

This cracks me up!

Slow Cooker Beef Vegetable Soup

Made this recipe for slow cooker beef vegetable soup yesterday and it was delicious!    I didn't use any canned items -- instead I used fresh potatoes and carrots, frozen organic corn and green beans and added in some water.  It's a keeper of a recipe.

Hope everyone has a good Wednesday!
