also in the hat are little baggies that contain our weekend themes---i'm trying to be organized this year with us (oh dear!!! watch out! :) ...

there is a baggie labeled alphabet....i figured we could have a weekend every once in awhile with product names that start with a certain letter, no need to type out all 26 letters of the alphabet!

there's a baggie labeled numbers...0 thru 10....figured if we were gonna have alphabet weekends, why not try numbers?

one labeled patterns, but there's only 4 left in there, can anyone think of any other patterns? this month we're doing dots and in the baggie are plaid, animal print, stripes and floral....

another labeled decades...obviously ever decade of the 1900s--including one that is 1990-1993....then i have 1875 to 1899 and then 1874 and before....

also colors....every color....i separated gold & silver and black & white into their own weekend....

then weekend events that don't follow the above themes:
eye wear
slumber party! ---friday night we'll have game ads, saturday morning cartoon ads, sat. afternoon music show ads and sat. night movie ads
cake & ice cream
fried food
classified ads
farm animals
jungle animals
marine animals
gardens
movie posters
now & then
where are they now?
PSAs
peace--ads that mention/promote peace

as ALWAYS, ideas and suggestions are welcome!!! of course we have one day events we'll be doing, such as for valentine's day i'm sure we'll do something, st. patrick's day, etc.....
