Bean brought along some fish patterned material and a desire to make a pillow, so received his first instruction on a sewing machine. I ripped off an edge to make it straight and it was confiscated and used on his head.
Following the sewing lesson was a rousing game of Pop the Pig-new to me. I've decided these overnighters are instrumental in keeping me up to date culturally. Not only learning new games, but finding out the names and popular songs of stars when we watch the ball drop. I get a bit behind due to my propensity to ignore the fact that we have not only a television, but cable as well. I care not.
It is always necessary to do a little science experimenting.
We did venture out for poppers and sparklers.
And, as the hour grew near some silliness with Duck Dynasty calls and hats. Duck Dynasty was another thing I learned about from Bean and Bugg last year.
Happy New Years with some sparkling berry juice.
They could have gone on and on, but I was worn out and New Year's Eve came to a close, with a powdery prayer and a tuck into bed.
As soon as Bugg woke up she asked if we were making "Blessing Balls"- crack up. It's Blessing Gems darling, gems.
It was a big time.
I'm out of school today due to the severe wind chill of 25 below. It is cold. The call just came that we're off tomorrow as well. And, in highly unusual turn of events, we don't have to make it up. Hurrah!
