New Years, Newspaper, Painting Class and More

First, and most importantly, I would like to thank all my readers who make my blog a success. 2011 was an awesome year, and you all helped make it happen. Without readers my blog would be just a bunch of stuff I put on the internet. So Happy New Year to you all! May 2012 be full of blessings and good luck. Speaking of 2012, how many of you think the world is going to end on December 21, 2012? Because, I really don't want to spend all that money Christmas shopping for no reason!Link

We made the front page of the local newspaper, The Levy County Journal! All right, we live in a small town, so making the front page of the paper is not really hard. But, it was in all three local papers. I told you about the photography class we did with Ranger Pam. She took a picture on the last day of class and it was put in the paper. It must have been a slow Christmas news week, or we probably wouldn't have been on the cover. The kids were excited. I was excited they weren't in the paper for stealing or something, lol! Not all the kids were able to go the second day, and not all members went to the class at all. But, it is a pretty good sized group. Ranger Pam is having a classroom built at the Refuge and will be having more classes when it is done. We can't wait.

We also had a playdate this week, and painting class. The kids picked polar bears as the theme. So the kids drew out their pictures on paper. DJ painted his right on the paper. His is the only one that looks like a polar bear. If you look at the pics my mom's looks like a sheep, mine a white buffalo and Caitlin's a giant snowball. Her turtle looks nice though. Wait that isn't a turtle its a seal. A green seal, Caitlin? LOL!

I have to work tonight, and I am testing out a peanut butter pie on my co-workers. I have never made one, but my mom wants one for her birthday next week. It really was quite simple so I hope it tastes good.

I am once again way behind on my Entrecard drops. My apologies, I am trying to catch up. I still have to finish grading DJ's papers for second semester report cards.

Congrats on making it into the paper! That's always exciting, even if it is a small town paper. Wishing you the best for 2012!

I can't wait to hear how the peanut butter pie was received. The photo is great. I love the bottles. They look really pretty. Wishing you all the best for 2012!

Thank you Rose. I hope you have a wonderful 2012 also.

Anne, lol, it never made it to work. Lets just say DJ and my husband thought it was delicious. I actually think I added too much peanut butter, because it seemed too thin. That is why they give you a recipe, lol!
