I was doing one too many things when I took these cupcakes out of the oven. As you can see I got a little side tracked talking to the kids, took them out and plopped them on the counter without poking them to see if they were done!
I have a tall skinny tree that I use to put the kids decorations on. We decided to get it out and light it up for Emeline tonight. All kids love lights, so she enjoyed exploring and feeling the bristles. She especially wanted to see what it tasted like.
We went to the grocery store tonight and walking in it began to spit some snow. When we walked out of the store we found ourselves in the midst of a lake effect snow shower. The flakes were enormous. It didn't last long but made the kids (and Dad) very anxious to go out to play.
Right before this picture snapped they were all on the ground making snow angels. I only captured Brad in the act - of course!
We tested Brad's tree. Looks good!
They created this "snow man" as they called it. Looks like a martian snowman to me.
Well we got really bored yesterday so I took out a foam craft kit I picked up to do when we got really bored one day!! I just didn't expect to get really bored so soon :)
It is Santa's house.
Emeline bounced around as we crafted.
Brad took advantage of a warm(er) afternoon and put lights up on a tree beside the house. I was VERY surprised to peek out the window to discover he had climbed up the tree in order to get the lights up to the top! Way to go Dad!
Here is Grandma trying to make Emeline happy. She is getting to that stage where she only wants her Mommy. It is nice to feel so loved and needed but it can be a BIG pain. You all can relate!! Theresa and Anthony enjoyed their dinner. Good luck with this last month of school Theresa and good luck with basketball Anthony. See you soon!
Russell donned Emeline's pilgrim hat. Doesn't he look cute!
Elsie looks way too interested in this beer can. She won't take a bottle yet? Maybe if the bottle was shiny and silver and black she would give in!
Sorry Jessie and Matt it was too cute of a picture to leave out!
This past Thursday we had an Ecumenical prayer service that Mom and I provided music for. She asked if I had the prayer card with the prayer "Lovely Lady Dressed In Blue" on it that we had when I was little. I remember this prayer. We made a melody up to the words and used to sing it. I just searched for it and found this. Beautiful prayer and beautiful memories!
