New Shoes

Hadley and I made shoes today because she wasn't going to take a nap even though she has been up since 6am and didn't go to sleep until 9:30 the night before.

That's a well crafted sentence if I've ever created one.

First we traced her feet on cardboard.

Then we measured "straps" and glued them to the pieces of cardboard.

After the straps you have to glue another piece of cardboard onto the shoe.  I wouldn't have known to do this which is why I did not make this activity up.  It's a little project from a very cute book I got from my in-laws. Or "ILs" as some other people are saying.  I've been running into phrases like, "ILs" or "DD" or "DH" and it is taking me forever to figure out what these things mean.  Do you know it took me about 2 years to figure out what "LOL" means?  I hate "LOL."  Is it so hard to write out "That's really funny." or "Wow, you made me laugh outloud."?   See, this is the kind of stuff I come up with when people's whose name rhyme with Schmadley Fryen don't nap.


OK, so one shoe makes her foot look like something out of "Lord of the Rings" but the other one's kind of cute.
No, she is not going to wear these on her first day of school.  These are just inside shoes.

That picture of her feet in her shoes is so funny! Sorry about the lack of napping. But again, it makes a fun blog post, as most frustrating things do.

And I thought LOL meant Lots of Love until a guy I worked with put it in one of his emails to me. I have a healthy self-esteem, but I knew that he would never say that to me, so I had to ask one of the younger girls in the office what it meant.

And since when am I NOT one of the younger girls in the office. Oh well.

Hadley's shoes take our term "Jesus Sandals" to a whole new level!! :)
You need to write a book with the character Schmadley Fryen.....

Dude, stop your whining about the nap. Erin hasn't napped in about 6 months - and on the off day that she does she doesn't go to sleep at night until 11:30!

What's the title of the book? That was a cute idea.
