This morning, the lawn guys came to blow the leaves away, but didn’t hit the neighbors’ yard. I give it, oh, 20 minutes for the leaves to be back.
Packaging is everything, don’tcha know? But let’s get real – you could package up s’mores in a paper bag and it would still be happily received. Jordan Ferney linked over to Twig & Thistle’s post on these DIY S’mores kits. Could they be any more perfect? And what an easy gift this would be as we are entering into the holiday season! Hostess gift? Check. Adorable with a great big mug for hot cocoa? Check.
I’ll bet Martha Stewart Crafts at WalMart or Michael’s will have some fun Christmas packaging going on this year – I can’t wait to see…
Anyway, if you receive something similaire to this from me for Christmas, try and look surprised, ok? ;)
Edited to add as an afterthought:
Have you seen all the awesome stickers at PaperSource? These Peppermint stickers would be perfection on the S’mores packaging.
The leaf situation is out of control here. I guess that’s what we get for having all these gorgeous, mature trees in our neighborhood. The yard guys came last week to blow the leaves away, and not two hours later, the grass was totally covered again. This past weekend, Simon borrowed a leaf blower from Eric, and went to town on our gutters. It was a balmy 80 degrees, and we were enjoying the sunshine. Jude particularly enjoyed watching his dad wield a power tool.
Nothing like eating a peanut butter sandwich while only wearing pants out on the back patio.
I should’ve taken a picture of all the leaves. They’re still out there. It’s like parting the Red Sea to walk to the mailbox.
Jude, with half-intact PB sandwich, watching his Dad blowing leaves. He is unsure.
Oh WOW. WAIT, THIS IS COOL!
NICE! I love the look on his face – he was delighted with the leaves blowing everywhere.
But then there was this look of resignation right before he got pummeled with the leaves. Yum – Peanut Butter & Crunchy Leaf Sandwich. Blechhh.
You guys, I am oh so proud of Mr. Shingleton. He is loving his new job over at Keller Williams Northwest, and I know that great things are in store for him. He has also launched a blog of his very own, (405)House+Home. (For those not in the OKC area, 405 is our area code.)
I helped him get set up over here at WordPress, and I am just so excited to see what he’s going to come up with. Add him to your reader – he’s going to do a fantastic giveaway in the very near future!
You can also check out his latest listings over at SimonShingleton.com. I know! How awesome is he?!
I love you, babe – I am SO proud of you!
