Right now the days are still pretty warm, but cooler temps are on their way.
It was a pretty good adventuring day.
the story about Picasso and then made our junk sculptures. The kids had been collecting stuff for the past two weeks and were very excited about making things. Some kids made more than one, i.e. Landon. It really is such a fun group of kids and they spend about an hour working on their projects. They like to see what everyone else makes and sometimes get ideas from one another. I am glad that we decided to do this.
During the summer our library was having weekly drawings for cookbooks. I put my name in and won the book.
Now since Harkin really isn't into eating a ton of veggies, I gave it a second thought. The recipes look good and there really is only a small amount of puree in each recipe. This past week we gave the pumpkin french toast a try. All the boys loved it. It was made again later in the week. I was not being sneaky, however, they knew it was in there. But they already like pumpkin.
There are several others I would like to try, especially with the winter squash and sweet potatoes. Those are a few veggies I can't get anyone to eat so sneaking them into recipes is the way I just have to go. We'll see how it turns out.
*Guitar is going well for Landon. I love listening to him practice. Such a sweet noise.*
*Harkin has learned the word "mine". Cute but also not.*
*The weather has been a bit on the chili side and we had our first fire tonight since I was so cold after Will's game. My husband is so sweet.*
*I was sick in bed for a day. The boys were amazing. They took care of the house and Mama and Harkin.*
*Knitting every day which just makes my day.*
*Every morning when Harkin wakes up, the first thing he does is call Wu Wu(William) and Chi Chi(Landon), while banging on his door. He wants them to come play with him. They are not always awake yet, but then they are.*
*My husband is the silliest man I know. Every night at dinner he makes the evening so much fun for the boys. They so look forward to it.*
* Made fried chicken tacos one night for dinner and the food hadn't gotten to the table before everyone was eating them. They said this was one of the best dinners I make. Even Harkin was eating one.*
*William told me today he wants to open and run a dessertery. You know a bakery but just with sweets.*
*Huge puzzle mania going on right now. There has been one done every day and then we started a 500 piece together.*
*Working hard on getting lots of rest and sleep.*
With that I am off to sleep. Early games tomorrow.
