Jonny had fun quickly putting this puzzle together.
So did Rachel. Though my girl is almost fourteen, not only does she occasionally get the itch to do baby puzzles with her younger brother, but she wants Barbies for Christmas. And a boy Barbie so that Jonny can play too. And that's one of the many reasons why we love her.
This morning we pulled out our apple juice change jar and rolled coins. The kids really enjoyed it.
Anna and Annalyn got the chance to explore the shanty again with Grandpa last week. They found some envelopes with a man's name on them. They went home and googled the name and found a biography on him--- and they were certain it was the same man. I let them print out the info and they then took the paper and crumpled it up and rubbed coffee on it to make it look old. Then they played detectives. For hours, they played.
I took this picture after Dennis had just woke up from having tubes put in his ears. He was barely sedated, so waking up was a breeze for him. He was ready to go in no time... and he was hungry too.
Alex is becoming very mobile. He really enjoys moving around the house on this little car.
He also enjoys licking frosting off of cupcakes.
I love these eyes. I have always thought they were gorgeous. William has a way of making them dance and sparkle.
Adam enjoys baking. Whether it be cupcakes or brownies, he always does a great job.
Dennis ate a lollipop and even three hours later his mouth was still blue. Still ---- I think he couldn't look cuter.
Recently I made ribs for dinner. Andrew asked John to drill a hole into this bone. I can't believe he wanted to wear a yucky pig bone around his neck----- this was a time I had to remember to pick my battles.
Last week, Jonny had to decorate a turkey for school. We had fun using glitter, cereal, and paint to decorate the turkey. It turned out really nice.
