I'll give him an "A" for effort.

Five:

I LOVE kid notes. I keep them all, and look back at them when I need to laugh, cry, or just remember.

ok, this is funny. Just TODAY, McKay was begging me to do a post about WHO lets their kids have cell phones. They're the same age...and i'm telling you, McKay really is the only kid in school without one. Still not caving.
CUTE letter, I feel he gets an A for effort too.
love it.

Cute! My kids want phones too. Love the note to Dad.

That is great! My two older girls have phones, but they only have it because of the situation we have with them, otherwise they would not have one.

Pumpkin bars? Oh, please do share because I am sick of making just pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!

Shelby said...

Holly, seriously you have to make these! They are to die for!!

I have been CRAVING something good to eat, but too lazy to make it. This may have just been the kicker. They sound yummy!

Lisa said...

Yum! Thanks for the recipe! I went and bought pumpkin today! Hey, did Jaxon win his plea to get a phone? Just wondering...

I think I have the "can I have a phone" conversation about once a week :)
Cute boy.
