Yep..50 pounds of corn flour! And a corn flour cookbook made especially for my family! There are some hand drawn illustrations and lots of blank pages for me to add recipes! I really love this gift!! I've never used corn flour before, but I'm excited to give it a try! Isn't this fun! (and very practical!!) Corn pancakes and tamales coming up!!

Number of toys: one little sock buddy
Dropped and Made by: Me (Julia)
When: December 20, 2008
And: It’s rather snowy here. I hope someone brings it home soon! Poor cold little softy!
It's snowed an inch or two since the drop and I don't think it's gonna stop anytime soon! I so hope the poor little thing doesn't have to wait for a thaw!!
(I love this!)-Thanks Toy Society -Check it out! so many toys dropped this weekend!

My kiddos had a blast sledding all afternoon at their cousins and stayed over! fun! hot cocoa for them when they get home!
niece's b-day tonight!
No school all week also means no pre-school! no pre-school Christmas party. no gifts crafted for their parents, no stories or art or painting the snow or poems recited. I miss the little turkeys!! I may just have our little festivities after the new year! Poor little guys!
They also canceled the school's Christmas program! (it was right to do it, no school=no practice) but I love it & was especially excited for this year because my son & nephew each had lines, Nephew & other son learned instruments with their class to play & little nephew had a special song to sing with the Kindergarten (who I had last year)
