If you give a mouse a cookie...

"If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk. When you give him the milk, he'll probably ask you for a straw. When he's finished, he'll ask you for a napkin. Then he'll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn't have a milk mustache. When he looks in the mirror, he might notice his hair needs a trim. So he'll probably ask for a pair of nail scissors. When he's finished giving himself a trim, he'll want a broom to sweep it up. He'll start sweeping. He might get carried away and sweep every room in the house. He may even end up washing the floors as well! When he's done, he'll probably want to take a nap. You'll have to fix up a little box for him with a blanket and a pillow. He'll crawl in, make himself comfortable and fluff the pillow a few times. He'll probably ask you to read him a story. So you'll read to him from one of your books, and he'll ask to see the pictures. When he looks at the pictures, he'll get so excited he'll want to draw one of his own. He'll ask for paper and crayons. He'll draw a picture. When the picture is finished, he'll want to sign his name with a pen. Then he'll want to hang his picture on your refrigerator. Which means he'll need Scotch tape. He'll hang up his drawing and stand back to look at it. Looking at the refrigerator will remind him that he's thirsty. So... he'll ask for a glass of milk. And chances are if he asks you for a glass of milk, he's going to want a cookie to go with it."

we made white milk mustaches out of white paper and put it on straws since it goes with the story. We made ch. chip cookies, and made paintings with paint, {millie took a nap} dirk hung drawings up with scotch tape, then enjoyed our cookies with milk :)

{I wish they would have swept the floors and washed them...hehe}

Western Michigan FAIR {part TWO}

Chuck and I had plans to go to the Demo Derby on Saturday Night, but for some reason I had a headache that I couldn't get rid of. I decided not to be a sissy and got ready and went to the Fair. We met up with some of Chucks friends and since they had ride passes, and had an extra, we decided that he would ride the rides :) good thing, because my headache got worse and worse. I know I was no fun :(
We did stay till almost 11pm. We also had plans to go cat fishing at the dam. I feel asleep on the way there and slept the whole time. Sunday Morning Still had a headache. It wasn't my finest weekend, I would have rather been home and in bed, but CWM3 made me feel loved <3 Have I mentioned how much I love him!!!
