Rest of the Long Weekend and Esme's Science Night

Jimmy has been baking up a storm for his co-workers since his cookie contest win.  He made these peanut butter ones topped with Reese's animal crackers recently.  They were so good.
Speaking of cookie championships, his name is officially on the plaque at church!
We also checked out a new cookie shop, Insomnia cookies.  Their chocolate chip and snickerdoodle were both top notch! 

Esme has been getting in to perler beads again and has been expanding her collection of Mario characters.  I saw you can print or buy patterns, but she's been building them from pictures she Googles.
Jimmy was home with the kids for MLK day so I took them out for dinner and a walk around Menards.
I was expecting McDonald's to be a lot busier since it was a holiday and a chilly night.  
On Thursday, Esme has a science night at school.  There was a little "service" fair in the cafeteria.  We picked up some goodies and Esme signed up for her very own Hennepin County library card. Next, we made som fun movable puppets with popsicle sticks, construction paper, and brass fasteners.
There was a building room with different size stacking blocks.
We also built a catapult that she got to try out.
