February Twenty-Ten

February in Cleveland seems harder for me each year. There is NO sun, I have NO energy, NO motivation and I tend to eat WAY too much and we all get sick. My poor house. My poor family. My poor body. But then March comes and the sunshine returns and I am again happy, motivated and start getting things done that I just think about doing in February:)

We did have SOME fun and I DID get a few things done that are evidenced in the next few pictures.
I was in charge of helping our Girl Scout troop make THESE centerpieces for a Valentine's Day spaghetti dinner put on by the church that sponsors our troop.

Sam has become a big fan of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" book series and loves the part where Greg Heffley confiscates his mom's bathrobe to stand over the heat vents on cold mornings. Cleveland has lots of cold February mornings and so Sam continually requested a bathrobe. I looked at Macy's, 2 Targets, 2 Walmarts, JCPenny, Sears, Dillards, Children's Place, TJMaxx, Nordstrom's, Kohl's and a few more stores that I am sure I am forgetting to no avail. There were only one size fits all men's bathrobes and lots of bathrobes in pastel prints. I finally stopped by Walgreens and found these kid Snuggies to warm up their Valentine's Day.
They were ecstatic and look a little like Boobahs when they wear them.

We prepped our house for THESE. . .

and I made a couple of THESE. I feel a huge Goody Gumdrops post coming on.

I love the centerpieces--they are so cute. The cake is wonderful, too.

Are those the cookies for your whole troop?

What cute centerpieces! You wouldn't think it would be so hard to find a robe. Glad you found something that would work.
