Just look at these happy faces....


why are they so happy? Well, because being the slacker mom that I am,



I sometimes like to cheat for dinner and that means SNACK NIGHT!!!!






Snack night means whatever fun snacky stuff I have in the freezer to make a little snack buffet out of...tonight it meant popcorn chicken, tater tots, pizza rolls, mini corn dogs, hot wings and cheesy garlic bread...now I know that the nutritional value here is somewhere between zero and negative 10...but sometimes I like to "push the easy button" so we can have time to do some things that are a little more fun.....like this





Yes my kid is wearing a tshirt that says "my mom is a fox" and no I did not buy that for him, I think I'm cute, but not that cute...my BFF Stephanie in Japan did...(we got the box, steph thanks!!) I can't believe it, but I actually got my kids to sew handmade Christmas ornaments!! Very cheap, fun and easy....

here's the pattern


I got it out of Crafts and Things magazine, which, by the way is a way fun magazine, with lots of really fun easy projects to do, and a lot of them use recycled stuff you already have...we used the pattern to cut out two stars out of felt and then sewed them together with embroidery floss. We stuffed them with polyfill closed them up, added ribbon and popped them on the tree!!










Here's the finished products....






well then I decided to get a little
cutesy so I made one more and
added patches....














and about an hour of sibling bliss, they are back at trying to kill each other again...

Here is the layout I did for last weeks sketch at Pencil lines...#61...I don't think I got it in on time, but I really liked the way it turned out...




that's all I have for tonight... hope everyone is doing great!

I can't believe they are sewing those ornaments too. My son would never pay attention long enough.
I love snack night. We do that every now and again....and of course Breakfast for dinner night. What great memories!

Those ornaments are too cute! And even those of us stationed in the depths of Poland sometimes do snack night:). They have frozen french fries in every country I've been to!
