I Saw Red, I was Read to and I Got Mail!!

Finding red things in my house is a little harder than I thought it would be. These are the valance in our kitchen. Earl is a big hot pepper freak so I have 2 of each of these 3 bandanna's sewn together going across our kitchen window. They were a quick and easy curtain to make and they look kinda cute too!
This is just one of his jalapeno decorationsThis is the book that Mallory read to me when I was sick the other day. It is the cutest story about a little boy who wondered what kind of award he would get at the end of the year awards ceremony for the kindergartner's. He felt like everyone else was better at everything than he was, but he ended up getting the "Best Friend" award which I thought was so nice! It's also about how kids and teachers deal with the end of the year and moving on.
Excellent choice of books Mallory! Thank you!
and finally this is what I received from Anna Chadwick for the Itty Bitty Swap. Thank you Anna for the Oodles of goodies. Yours will be in the mail tomorrow, I promise! Did you know that an Altoid tin can hold quite a bit of stuff? I was really surprised to see how much stuff they can hold.
