Schmutziger Donnerstag (February 11)

Brenna enjoying her stickers (she is looking tired here already - she has a head cold and isn't herself today).

Brenna enjoying her new presents from Gammy - she loved everything!

Brenna and her new dog playing clowns :-)

Just loved this look of Brenna - makes you wonder what she is going to get into next!

Hello All!!!
Hope all is well out there. Brenna woke up with a very stuffy nose today, so I kept her home from kindergarten today (which I'm sure was a good plan as the class walked outside about 2 miles and then stood outside for about 30 minutes more with the activities for Schmutziger Donnerstag here). Carnival started with some fireworks this morning (I think around 5 am) and then there was plenty of noise from the activities at our town hall this morning too. Brenna was very curious about what was going on, but we couldn't see too much from our windows this morning (and I wasn't going to take her out in it since I kept her home today to minimize her time outside). We tried a new recipe this morning for homemade marshmallows (it was a bust - didn't set up at all...plus really not that much fun for a 3 year old when making). I thought it would be fun once they were made to cut out with a cookie cutter - I think this is a project I will wait on until we are back in the US and I have a candy thermometer...
Speaking of projects, I started a list of all the projects that I want to get done and some goal dates - I am up to 3 pages right now - guess I better keep at it! (Bummer to lose my project day today - I was even going to have a longer day as the pick up time wasn't until 2:30! oh, well!). Not sure if Brenna will make it to school again tomorrow - hope we have a better afternoon than morning (I wonder if a nap will be in her future???).
Well, gotta go! Take Care!

Hope the cold is very short-lived, and no one else comes down with it. Don't let it get you down that your project list is waiting..it will be alright. Flower paint-ooh, so pretty!

Isn't is interesting that stickers don't belong on paper or something paper like, but arms, fingers and your face! Love that she's still having fun even though she's not feeling the best! I hope that it's just a short lived head cold and that it doesn't give either of you too much trouble. Missing you!
