Owl Slippers {Free Crochet Pattern}

My sister LOVES owls. I sewed her an owl apron for Christmas and when she told me she was looking for a new pair of slippers,  I decided to make her a pair of owl ones!

I didn't have a pattern to follow so I just "winged" it. I wrote the pattern down as I made one of the slippers so that I can make the other without trying to remember what I did. So here it is!

Lego Birthday Party

It was my son's 10th birthday on May 12th (sorry it took this long to post)
He is very big into Legos right now and I thought it would be awesome to have a Lego themed party for him.. I would have done more, as I found a whole lot of ideas on pinterest, but I ended up spending almost a week in the hospital with one of my other children before the party, so this is as much as I could do with the little time I had. Enjoy :)

Why God Made Mothers

Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:

I thought these were so interesting and funny I wanted to know what my children's answers would be 
so I asked them and added their answers :)

Why did God make mothers?
1. She’s the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2. Mostly to clean the house.
3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.
Simon (9.5, 4th grade): Without mothers there would be no people.
Stanley (7, 2nd grade): To make sure their children not have too much candy and not play too much video games and not watch too much movies.
Thaddeus (5, pre-k): To make babies.

Jo-Ann Fabrics and Aprons

I don't think I mentioned it here yet so here we go...
I got a job at Jo-Ann Fabrics!!!!
I am so excited to be able to work in one of my favorite stores! About a month ago I found out that my local Jo-Ann's was hiring, I went straight to my computer to apply!! I had an interview almost immediately and then after filling out and signing a bunch of paper work online, I was hired!!

I have worked a few shifts already, one of them being on Black Friday Morning, and am having tons of fun!
Part of the Jo-Ann Fabrics uniform is to wear an apron. Although they do provide one for you, it's just a plain green apron with their logo on it, I was told we could make our own! Provided, of course, that we use current Jo-Ann's fabric and that the colors go with the season. Right now the season is Christmas/winter so I made myself this pretty and reversible apron:

Better Broccoli Cheese Soup Than Panera

I love Panera's broccoli cheese soup, but don't get to go there often {it has been a few years}

One day last month, I decided to make some at home. And this is the result..
Either it has been too long since I've eaten broccoli cheese soup or this is better than Panera!
Make it and decide for yourself :)
