What on earth has the Hancock family been up to?

In addition to all of our busyness we have been sick, but we're on the mend!!!

Some of what we've been busy doing...

Logan's little fish Macaroni died...I actually think I killed him when I cleaned his tank.  I went to retrieve him right away when the kids told me he was dead and this is what I found.  I felt terrible when I saw his little note!!!
Courtney had a project due for Geography.  They had to create & map their own country...an island with 3 cities, 15 physical features, 2 forms of transportation, a legend/key (hanging from the map it serves as her map key and the key to the Capital City of Peace).  She also had to create a flag for the country.  Courtney included some of our favorite places in her cities...
Pupbucks=Starbucks
Pawblix=Publix
Barkbuster=Blockbuster
Great job sister...I would totally live there!!!
Our next bit of busyness...a cornucopia for Curtis's fall display at Publix.  Oh the things you can make out of chicken wire and a pool noodle!
The finished cornucopia in all it's glory at the store.  The kids & I took it to the store after I put the finishing touches on it.  I wish you all could have seen the people staring at us taking this thing into the store on top of a grocery cart.  People were looking at us with a strange curiosity like we all had a third eye or something. 
Then there is this.  It belonged to my husband's father who died when he was only 2.  Ugly to start with and 32 years of being dragged/moved from one place to another hasn't done it any good.  I really wanted to trash it, but was guilted into refinishing it.  I'm actually glad I did keep & refinish it!!!
Sorry...no photo of the refinish yet!!!

  6. You've been busy! Great job on the display, it looks terrific! So sorry about your fish too. Graham has a tank in his room that I cannot stand. I would be the one trying to get rid of the fish. But I know it would break his little heart!
