Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, We ate good and enjoyed the company of friends and family. I hope that everyone had a chance to think about what truly matters in their lives today and gave thanks for all of those things. I believe that thanks-giving should happen on a daily basis therefore, I continue to give thanks for all of my wonderful blessings, especially for my wonderful (sometimes stress-provoking) family!

Here she is...My Official Junior Girl Scout! She's waited a long time for this day.
Sunshyne has been a Girl Scout since she was six years old, starting out as a Daisy Scout.
She was completely estatic about getting her rededication paraphernalia ( ...and yes, that's the proper spelling). She was so excited that I could hardly contain the excitement!
She's such a funny girl!
I had to hurry over to the Girl Scout Store to pick up her sash and troop number's. She'll be stunning in green and that's what it's all about. Today I'll put them all together so that the next time I do a post about Sunshyne as a GS, you'll be able to see her in the full glory of her GS uniform...and maybe even a few cookies...hehehe...can't wait!

But first let me introduce RJ...here he is tasting a blue Mega Blok...looks yummy!
(sometimes my camera phone like to make me scream...)
P.s don't you just love babies in these little footed pajamas!
Here is one of the shelves that I finally got "semi" the way I want it. On the top shelf there is a wooden 1-5 number puzzle, a coin slot that I made with a Folgers coffee can, and a box of vintage ABC blocks. I think you can see the other two shelves ok from this photo.
Top shelf: wooden knobbed transportation puzzle, some wooden animal shapes in a tin container. The middle shelf has Mega Bloks and soft circus animals that make different sounds. The bottom shelf contains a V-Tech tow truck with interlinking cars, and a teaching turtle.
Here's a better view of both bookshelves....I hope.
(The very top of these shelves have stuff on them for older preschoolers.)
Here we have a knobbed Geranimals puzzle and a wooden clock on the top shelf. The other two shelves contain activity mats.
The bottom cubby to the left contains an old wine gift box that contains shapes and other cool things to discover. The tray above that is currently used for noisy toys such as rattles. The middle bottom cubby holds RJ's favorite ball and above that are his stacker toys. The bottom right cubby contains RJ's favorite soft noise toy, a little green turtle like thing that makes a soft rattling noise and different textures on each side of it. Above that cubbie is a tray that contains five balls that have different textures and makes different sounds as well.
This shot might be better...might not
Here he is actually attempting to stack the Mega Bloks...I was thoroughly impressed!
Well that's it for today, I have many learning stations set-up for him thru out the house but I'll get to those on some later posts, after all this is our first week...not to mention, I didn't feel like cleaning up the WHOLE house to get a few pics...hehehe.

The point is to do something fun that you will enjoy, that's just for you. Give yourself a chance to decompress and regenerate so that you can fully give to the folks in your life that mean the most to you. That's exactly what I'll be focusing on probably more than once this week...it's been rough.
