Visions of Sugar Plums Dance in Their Heads………

We are still celebrating our Christmas Holiday……….

Longhorn family is still here……..yay!

Ms. Beatle, AKA Cherokee Princess is the Longhorn Momma…….

I’m officially changing her name from Cherokee Princess….because although she is a teacher in real life….she cannot help it and she is such a teacher in her “off work” life too………..

 I mean…she brought “craft time”……


Mrs. Paparazzi’s and Baby Brother Brats kids used to be impressed when I pulled out Kleenexes for them to color on with ink pens when they came over to my house…..but Nooooooo…..Ms. Beatle had to like “ten up” that good crafty idea at my house…….with her fancy shmancy, Gingerbread house craft time………

Who wants to lug a gingerbread house kit from the Longhorn state but Ms. Beatle…….dang it…..

Kleenex craft time used to be so cool…………

All she has done since she got here is work……dinner has been some kind of “fun” food that she has planned and prepared. Creative gifts……you name it.

I mean…..

Hello already.

Does she do this stuff at home?

The whole cooking thing is like way more than I do but dang……..tonight was a whole creative way of eating as she had all the ingredients out for us to combine what vegetable toppings and spices we wanted with our meat and then we wrapped them tightly in foil with our name on them and put them outside on hot coals……..opened them up and they were all cooked…steamed and yummy after 20 minutes……….Hellllllooooooo????

Is it just me or is this almost freaky weird level of  perfect mom and wife?

I’m sure I’m just not the slacker sister……… 

I am also sure I am  NOT going to fit in my wedding dress……tomorrow she has prepared this Eiffel Tower level lasagna…….does anyone know where they sell Spanx?

Before…….I was impressed when I hauled out  the Hamburger Helper and a can of corn.

If I even  broke open the Macc and Cheese my kids started thinking it’s their birthday.

But now…..I’m starting to think…….ummmmmm what’s up with me….I have zero, nada, zilch on the crafty genes my sisters have……

And I have a funny feeling………

That my nieces and nephews will start expecting a different level of “fun” when they come over……


thanks alot Ms. Beatle………….


Now I’m going to have to show them how to make toilet paper fans…………

That will impress them!

Useful yet fun craft ideas…

They will love them!

They will come back to me I’m sure of it………..

Wonder if I could put the hamburger helper in foil packets and prepare on the grill!

Guess I shouldn’t have let myself get intimidated by all of her creativity.

I mean…..hamburger helper on the grill?

Ha! She would never have thought of that.

Guess I do have that “crafty” gene after all……..

Love , Me.
