jr. police officers, slumber party, and a happy mail day!

Priorities first!

Today was such a happy mail day!
I felt very international....I got mail from:


(some crocheted flowers so that I can embelish the couple hats I plan to knit up)


from France!:

a copy of the Stampin' Up Catalogue, Francais. This sucker cost me $22 (mostly shipping costs) but to me, it's worth it:

Last wednesday, our Girl Scout troop took a field trip to the La Mesa Police Dept:

It was fun...the best part was hearing the girls' questions at the end. "Why is there jail?" "How come there's no mattresses in the jail room?" and my personal favorite: "Why are there homeless people?" :o) All the kids took a quick peek and walked right on by the seat where they do the booking photos...I don't think they entirely trusted the tour guide when she promised she was not going to put them in handcuffs. :O)

And then this past Saturday Arissa had a friend spend the night. It was kind of a big deal, because a) it's only the 2nd time she's had a friend sleep over, and b) we had to totally change our life around for a day and a half to accomodate an overnight guest. We sent Mariah & Mallory to Nana's for the night, because they LOVE Arissa's friend and wouldn't have let her and Arissa have a moment to themselves. Plus 4 kids in the house, plus Jesse, is too much for me!

Jesse went golfing Sunday morning so it was just me and the girls. It was raining, so I had to think of stuff to entertain them. So, of course, we did a craft:

The girls painted these wooden frames that I had bought about a year ago:

...then we took a cute picture of them, got it developed in seconds at Target, and voila:
