Jeremy and I have backed an online project called the Peanut Ukulele. We ordered two electric peanut ukes and the first of them arrived in the mail today! This is going to be fun for jamming in our house with out disturbing the neighbors.
I backed my first Kickstarter project back in September 2018. Today my games arrived: "Unstable Unicorns Control" and "Unstable Unicorn Chaos". These are Kickstarter exclusive sequels to the original game "Unstable Unicorns" that is available in stores now.

I always end up getting Jeremy's gifts early. Usually because he "needs" them. This year is no different. It made sense to get him his drone 2 months early so he could use it during our summer adventures and to give him time to practice before he gets to start up his new drone club at school next fall.

I have finally done it! I made the Print-n-Play game "My Little Scythe" based on the popular game "Scythe" from Stonemeier Games but scaled down for a younger audience using a "My Little Pony" theme.
Our latest obsession has been board games. We've always loved to play them: Monopoly, Yahtzee, Sequence, etc. But, there is a whole world of board games out there that is not just the ones at Walmart and Target. Barnes and Noble, Half Price Books, and Amazon have become our friends when looking for the latest and greatest games.
Takenoko (pictured above) is about the gift of a panda from the Emperor of China to the Emperor of Japan. The Gardner is trying to grow a beautiful bamboo forest of various colors to be both beautiful and feed the panda while the panda is constantly eating all the bamboo. You earn points by growing certain colors of bamboo, laying tiles in certain colors, or feeding the panda.
If that isn't challenging enough, we also have an expansion that introduces a second (female) panda and whenever the pandas land on the same tile together.... baby pandas appear!
Our first trip to Disney World without parental supervision! So. Much. Fun! We literally ran from ride to ride and ate junk food all day long!

Yes, Mom! We are wearing protective glasses!
While at school for one of our training days (professional development), we all headed outside for a peek at the sun.
Attention: everyone!! Mo Willems stuffed toys and books are now available at Kohls through their "Kohls Cares" promotion. Each toy and book is only $5! Collect them all!
*Seriously, if you don't know what this is or why these books are SO fabulous: ask an elementary school teacher or just go and read them for yourself. Highly recommended by this elementary teacher. (Pro Tip: you'll need to hurry. The supplies are already starting to run out in some ares due to the high demand from school teachers.)
If anyone wants to pick up a set for me... my birthday is only 299 days away.
