Quilt With Us

I would consider it a success, since they are planning a second one already.  They want to watch the Toy Story trilogy next.

 

Well, not everyone loved GWTW, but Seven Brides for Seven Brothers was a HUGE hit.  When I opened The Blind Side DVD case, no disc - it's in my TV at home - oops.  So I substituted Stand and Deliver, which they all loved.  At one point I had some girls get a bit out of hand and I told them that this was movie night and if they didn't want to watch the movie, then they could leave.  Plus they were making a mess.  Well, they cleaned up the mess very well, and then watched the movie with considerably better manners.  (It might have helped that I sort of mumbled that perhaps "we" can't seem to control ourselves and that I guess "we" didn't need to have any more movie nights.  Yes, I've learned how to do guilt trips very well, huh?)

 

Even with all the food we started with, I was amazed at how much they brought with them!  Then one group went out to eat "real" food at a fast food place, and another girl got a craving for Cheese Nips and Cocktail Pep sticks.  We even had leftover food from two other classes.  Additional food included more cookies cupcakes, chocolate-covered pretzel sticks, fruit and veggie platters, meat and cheese platter, several bags of M&M's, gummy worms, saltwater taffy, guacamole, cheetoes and other chip bags, jugs of fruit juices, large bag of tangerines, ranch dip, bags of carrots, snow peas, and snap peas.  Boy, those girls can really eat!

 

At the end, I kept all the fruit and veggies for the animals, threw away any opened packages that I wasn't willing to keep, and put all the unopened food in the kennel room to eat in the new year.  I sent home a lot of food with the last girl to leave and I brought home chips, cookies, popcorn tin, Easy Mac, crackers, and pepperoni, candy canes, pizza rolls, and mini tacos.  Doesn't that sound nutritious...LOL

 

Now, if only my furnace was working.  The replacement heat exchanger should be here Monday.  The dining room/living room is open to each other, so I have a portable heater in there, but the thermostat says it's 57 degrees, and that's the warm part of the house.  After a warm shower, I think I will do some cooking and baking to warm up the kitchen, do some cleaning to warm me up, and move all the animal cages into those rooms.  Then it will be time to quilt & watch movies-the cats and dogs should enjoy that.  (Too cold to be on the computer much longer.)

 

Happy "Winter Break" to all the teachers out there.  :-)

Yikes!  I don't think I'd want to be without my heater this time of year.  I feel for you!  Glad movie night went over big.  It was a fun thing for you to do with them.  Keep warm & Merry Christmas!

Movie night sounds like a huge hit. All that junk food made my teeth hurt! lol...Our furnace went out once and the house got down to 40 and we were about ready to drain the pipes when the electric came back on. It was cold!!! Hope you get it fixed soon...

Sounds like a great night and a good way to handle things when it was getting out of control.  What fun. Too bad you didn't have enough food to eat. LOL

Oh my.... this is not the time, temp, or weather for your furnace to be out.  Baking sounds like a good thing and good way to warm up the place too.
