Mini Mail

Good Morning Everyone! I've been away from blogging for a couple days weeks because I've been so busy. Now that Thanksgiving is over, my life will slow down for about four days then it will be back to hectic city. Anyway...I got to participate in a cool event hosted by Meredith over at The Tichenor Family. She started something called Mini Mail. Your child gets connected with another child (in the same age group), and they exchange mail. Isn't that neat? My description of it doesn't really do it justice. You should read about it here.
Jordan's pen pal is Evie (pronounced like Chevy). Evie is 2 yrs old, lives in TN, and has a baby brother!
Here is what were  supposed to send (sorry I forgot to take pictures):
  • Something that Jordan is thankful for
  • a drawing of his family
  • something to read
  • something in your favorite color
  • and a quick note about what Thanksgiving is like in our family.
What we sent:
  • Is it bad that I can't remember what we sent as our thankful gift?
  • Jordan drew a picture of his family, then scribbled all over it. We sent it anyway. LOL!
  • Jordan's favorite books are books on colors. He doesn't really have a favorite color. He is an equal-opportunity  color lover.
  • Thanksgiving is a low-key  day for us. We have about 10 people over for dinner. My mom and I split the cooking duties.
What we got:
  •  Pink playdoh
  • Fruit Roll Ups
  • "There Was an Old Lady, Who Swallowed a Pie," great book, btw
  • A great picture of Evie and her family and a note about what they were up to for Thanksgiving this year.
Jordan has loved reading his book and playing with his play doh. Check out Jennifer's blog to learn more about Evie and her family!

Evie loves the color book from Jordan! Maybe she will decide to like another color besides pink. I am so behind on blogging these days - hope to get back in the swing soon.
