Freckle Foot opened a restaurant The Hungry Sandwich

The Hungry Sandwich opened for business this morning. We had no school today and I was looking forward to getting a little more sleep. Unfortunately the restaurant is located directly above my bedroom.  Check out the hours below...yes that was 6:37am - hard to see, but crossed out.
 Freckle Foot has stocked the kitchen and even set up a place for a cutting counter.
 She even made menu's for each customer. I like that there are mixed drinks on the menu - always a must if you've been awakened by a child setting up a restaurant at 6:37am in the morning.

 Early this morning there was a line (of every stuffed animal they owned) out the door waiting for a table but by the time I was awake everyone had been "served". I was seated right away. The food was delicious and the owner was especially friendly and welcoming.

I was wondering where my broom went.  Apparently it is essential to keep the restaurant clean. And that explain the strange sounds that I could not recognize while I was trying to sleep this morning. I think the Hungry Sandwich will be open all week for those of you would like a good meal and friendly service.

Fairy Mask

Freckle Foot needed a super hero mask for school a few weeks ago. The school has a compliment card program. When the kids are caught being good, on task or just helpful, teachers fill out a card and it's sent to the front office. Then is placed on the walls of the school. When the whole school meets their goal they get to dress up on a Friday. This particular Friday had a super hero theme. I found out on Monday that she needed a costume. I have a ton of superhero stuff for the boys but not for her.  She had a Tinkerbell fleece cape that she got from Grandma G.
I dug around in my felt stash and came up with this. It turned out a little big for her face but I was happy about how it turned out. She had a costume for the day. It's a rare day that I feel like a superhero but I felt like I came to her rescue just in time. I think I finished it at 11pm Thursday night.

It snowed in March!


Last year at the spring Just Between Friends consignment sale I found this water table. I have been searching Pinterst to find different ways to fill it. This is our fake snow. The boys exact words were "this is awesome". I went to the Dollar Store and purchased a bottle of hair conditioner and raided my Costco sized stash of baking soda. The recipe is 3 cups baking soda and 1/2 cup of conditioner. I found the recipe at 1st Grade Fantabulous. It feels cold just like snow and it sticks together enough to make snowmen. I ended up using 6 cups of baking soda and a 1 cup of conditioner. Freckle Foot wasn't really interested in it which was good because it made just enough for both the boys. They have played in it for the past two days with no bickering. Since I used a coconut scented conditioner the boys both came in the house smelling like coconuts. Little Loaf and his Dad had a grand time telling me that he smelled like coconuts. I'm not sure why they thought this was so funny but Little Loaf was in hysterics.

As you can see I think it might take about 15 cups of baking soda to fill the whole table. I ended up using all the baking soda I had on hand to make enough for the two of them. Looks like I will be stocking up next time I go to Costco. This summer I plan on doing some ice and snow activities so this was a good test run.
