Fun times with popcorn

The kids are off school for Thanksgiving break and I wanted to do something to entertain them. I wanted something seasonal that will be useful as well. That is when I remembered stringing popcorn as a child. My grandma used to do crafts like that with us. It is a great, cheap, easy craft that you can hang outside for the birds to eat!! Here are some pics of our fun time....

Christmas Decorating

I love Christmas!!! It is my favorite time of year! The music, food, snow, trees, deco, fun times, and all that comes along with it!! I love it so much that we decorated last weekend. We put on some Christmas music and went for it. Usually I have a big tree up, but this year we decided against it since Zach is such a rascal. He would have the tree undecorated and taken apart in no time at all!! So here is what we ended up with this year....

Sam's cake

Well, today my bog boy turns 12! I cannot believe that I have a 12 year old!! Last night I bake him a cake and we sang and ate it! It was yummy! Not very pretty but tasted really good. It was cherry chip cake with Cherry frosting!! MMMMM. Here are some pics....

It's been a while...

It has been a while since I have posted. Not too much out of the ordinary going on. Just the same old stuff.

Zach is learning new words. His newest is more. I am glad I taught him "more". It makes for a few less fits during the day.

Mia is learning to read and spell words. She is doing great at sounding them out. She drew a picture of the family and sounded out all of our names - "mom", "dad", "Sam", Mia" (she already knew this one well), and "Zak" (Zach but she got so close)!!! I am so proud of her!

Sam is working on a science project that will need a lot of grown up help. I am excited! He chose to do his project on catapults. We get to build them, shoot them off and write up our findings. Tons of fun!!
