Little brown book.

A few weeks ago Portland got hit with a snow/ice storm that kept us pretty much indoors Thursday through Monday. When we did venture out we played in the snow, we stayed in and watched a lot of movies, and of course ate a ton of cookies/popcorn/drank gallons of hot chocolate.

One day we also got motivated, and threw away a lot of garbage, rearranged some furniture and cleaned. I worked off some of those cookies. I vacuumed and dusted. Let's just say it's been a while since that happened.

get each others phone numbers and write sweet sentiments such as:

And Loved Me Like A Sister...
Some expressed themselves musically.

Some were not very good writers, and wanted to tell me so.

Some were just...strange.

Some were total buzz kills.

Some wanted to be friends, but not too good of friends.
And then there's this -- thanks Ann.

Here's what happens when you let your teacher's sign your book.
Honestly...I preferred this type of math.
Stay sweet.
