Of all 4 kiddos at once... Lets say Challenging.. Alex is looking somewhere else in each and everypicture
Brianna and Caitlynn strike a pose! Nathaniel makes faces All I wanted was one picture... I wanted to make prints to send away with Christmas cards I don't even know where the unicorn came from.... poor unicorn Please tell my what Alex is looking at!!! I can't figure it out! Now Nathaniel too.... nooooooo! This one isn't too bad Here we go... This one.. I think I just need to write "happy holidays from the funny farm"
Yesterday they had a "Children's choice party" at the library, in honor of election day. The kids had so much fun! First the librarian talked about what an election is, then read a book about voting. Then the kids got to do some crafts and vote on their favorite book, character, and author. My kiddos all choose to design their own book cover! (ignore my hands and look at the hard at work 2 year old.. awwwww) Picking out paper to add to her book Very hard at work! And yes Alex was there, he has this habit of disappearing from the camera...
In other news I checked out yet another cookbook from the library! It is Family fun: Cooking with kids. It has SO many ideas from Breakfast to dinner and dessert. It also has some fun snack recipes, and ideas for school lunches! Today the girls and I made Black bean and salsa soup (though we put it all in the crock pot!) To have with it we are having turtle bread, It is SUPER cute :). I think if ours turns out as cute as the picture we will be making it again to take with us to Thanksgiving at my sister in laws house. Nathaniel found an Ice cream sandwich recipe he wants to make (made with 2 BIG cookies then cut into slices ). Alex has decided to help with the pumpkin pie yayyy! Yum.. Everything in this book looks yummy and like fun :) check it out for your kids!!!
You remember our pumpkin... Yes that HUGE thing sitting on the table... The one we got for $4 at Walmart... The pumpkin that was almost as big as my 2 year old.... Well yesterday I decided to chop it up and cook and puree it.... Little did I know it was going to take 3.5 hours... Yes that long... I knew I was really in trouble when I filled the first stock pot and I was only a quarter of the way through the pumpkin..... And here where the results...
after three hours of cooking...
Then I bagged it up, I got 21 bags of pumpkin puree... Each bag has 2 cups of pumpkin.... Yes from one pumpkin I got 42 cups of pumpkin puree.... So like I said before .... Who wants some pumpkin?????
Also anyone have any pumpkin recipes for me? I made pumpkin butter this morning, I will be making pumpkin muffins in just a bit... Any thing else??? Help me!!! Please?And in other news... I got next to no pictures of the kids on Halloween.... My Dear sweet husband offered to take the camera while I was chasing kids... He then put it in his pocket... grrrrrrr... So this is what I ended up with.... (but look you can see Alex now LOL)
I hope everyone had a great Halloween ... And sends me pumpkin recipes!!
I'm a mama, I am in love with all coffees, and chocolates :). Sometimes my life seems to revolve around blues clues...Then I have to shake it up. Sometimes I get carried away with projects, and sometimes I never finish them. Enjoy!
