Broken Vow Thursday




Now I'm not saying I can control the weather or anything- but the temperature has gone down 15* since I bought this coat today at a rummage sale. Really. The coat was $4.00- the vintage dish towel-25 cents. Today was homeschool bowling and Riley bowled two strikes in a row!! One of the strikes was for his friend because he was playing a video game when his turn came around but the second was on his turn. My Poppy K spent a lot of time at the bowling alley- he once bowled a 297! So it's just in our blood to have sweet bowling skills.
It's been about ten weeks since I made a solemn vow to never ever ever host a sleepover again. So guess what we're doing tonight- evidentially ten weeks is my cut-off date for never ever ever. They have promised to go to bed by midnight and I'm going to hold them to it. We've had pizza- we're making milkshakes with leftover halloween candy in them- and we rented this movie. I might be the only one filling the birdfeeders for the next few weeks.

"The Birds" is my favorite childhood movie. Children misbehave, show them the movie, begin to CAW-CAW like a giant crow.

Beautiful picture of you in the lovely coat. You are a bargain shopper extraordinaire.

I'm glad my girls have outgrown the sleep over stage. I don't think I could handle it anymore :-)
