Boxing Day Reflections

Yesterday we had such a blast with ALL the kids together, it was a total blast for them and all of us.  So blessed to be so near to each other.

I would like to thanks Bernie Botts Everyflavor Beans for the best entertainment of all:

C: these are yummy...

10 minutes Later

G: (looking extremely unsure, tries his first...) Uggh! (runs and spits half out, hands me the other half) You try it. (Shoves it in my face.)

Me:Uh... you found ear wax...(wrong turns out it was rotten egg.)
(split second later.)

C: IT Tastes Like BUGS!!! (runs for trash can, starts spitting).

Me: (reading back of the box) You found Earthworm! (great big, maybe wicked laugh.)

Halloween and the Last Two Months

My Zombie Pigman (Minecraft) and my beautiful Unicorn.  Another year of homemade costumes. They kept some candy for enjoyment but when we got home it was a big sorting and discussion for them, what to keep... what to give away.  Decisions, decisions.
 Grady sold a little over $3 to me.  When she saw that Cora stuffed her sell off pile. Cora sold about $7.50 worth of Candy to me at $.25 a piece.  When Grady saw that he got mad and then did a complete reassessment of his sell out.  In the end he sold me over $10.00 worth of candy.  Off to the Toy Store tomorrow for spending of this Halloween earnings. Rivers Reach neighborhood was good to them.

Schooling includes learning basic body parts.  They had a blast getting their bodies traced and labeling all the parts together.  Then they "needed clothes" drawn on. There has also been some painting going on.

 This young girl love her leotards, especially the one that flies out when she twirls.  She wears these to her Gymnastics classes.  Just ask her to show you her balance beam routine.

 She loves to be is Goofy pictures in any case.
Popsicle stick Puzzles.Easy fun.

Family picture time again.Always glad to get this shot.

Grady and Cora couldn't spot the frog right away can you.  Look at the Bark a moment.
As usual they also love playing on Daddies fancy phone. (Upper picture part of a discussion Grady and I had about proper distance to work from the page.)

Over the last few weeks

Grady and Cora pounced on Daddy's new Droid (cell phone).  All of a sudden angry birds was in again, for about two weeks
We had some friends over for a little T-shirt making.  They really looked great.  Just used some sharpies, rubbing alcohol, a few cups and rubber bands.  My one regret would be that I did not tumble these in a the dryer a bit to color fast the inks.  They have definitely faded.

jjjjjhvufiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
(Cora wants to blog too.)

Rain storm puddle jumping.  This was probably one of the only rainstorms this summer without lightning. Grady encouraged Cora and when they were both comfortable out there we took some fun photos of puddle jumping.


Then of course I have been able to get a few ponytails on my girl. I snapped quick pictures because they didn't last long.

Cora wanted to taste a real rainbow.  I came up with this idea for
one way we could do that.

Peanut butter malt milk shakes !!!
