A Pleasant Saturday, Sunny and Warm with No hint of Fall....

The high in Phoenix today was 82 degrees... Yes I know, other places are cold and snowy, while we are basking in the sunshine!  We enjoyed a day at home today, no travel or adventures. Just relaxed, played, read stories, and watched a few Christmas movies (and Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving, which will probably be deleted off the dvr by daddy tomorrow. I know one little boy who will be so very disappointed, as we have watched it probably 8 times since it aired Thanksgiving eve.)

Since the day was so beautiful, I decided to make cornstarch and food coloring paints, which not only painted the most vibrant colors, but got us outdoors as well. We painted for a while, but my son seemed more interested in washing his paint brush after about ten minutes, which then led to water play.

It was great to just relax, and be......

As for the book of the day....We read quite a few stories from this little gem today. The Little Book of Farmyard Tales by Heather Amery, illustrated by Stephen Cartwright is a book perfect for very little people, or beginner readers. It contains eight short stories in which Poppy and Sam help to solve troubles that always seem to happen on Apple Tree Farm.
