Magic time and some cookies :)

Last tuesday the library had a magic show/trick or treating/ halloween party So after school and a quick dinner we got everyone dressed and left.
Alex wouldn't be still that is the best picture I got of him...

But I love this one of Nathaniel.... I think he was dancing??
My pirate girls :)
And here is the super cool magic show.... and Look you can see my kiddos too!
Sort of LOL.

Then Brianna got a balloon animal. She loved it so much ... until she decided to untwist it.. then it looked like a worm so she popped it....

And in other news The girls and I have been reading the little house series and they LOVE it.. I found a cook book at the library the other day The my little house cookbook.
It is Sooooooo cute, It has super easy recipes like lemonaid (yum). Pancakes, sausage balls, and ma's best butter cookies. Well the other day Brianna and I made the lemonade and it was great.. And at the same time it was a recipe a 4 year old could make (LOVE IT). Then yesterday for dinner I told Brianna that She was cooking! We made sausage balls, corn bread, and mixed veggies... She was SO proud of herself! Well today we made Ma's Best butter cookies Yet anouther yummy successful recipe. I am putting this book on her wish list!

Halloween is on the way!

Yesterday we spent the morning running to Walmart to get the boys their Halloween costumes! Both choose GI-Joe costumes... don't ask me who they are supposed to be I'm not sure LOL.
While we were there the kids asked for a pumpkin.. We found a HUGE one in the $4 pumpkins and grabbed it up! Later at home I painted lines to split it into 4 sections, Then let the kids have at it creating their own Jack -o lantern.. Is is bad that I did this with washable paint so that after Halloween I can wash it off chop up the pumpkin and then make a whole bunch of pumpkin puree?.... Yum :)

Nathaniel's side

Yeah this thing is HUGE LOL.

My baby.. Can READ!!!

Ok so we have been working on it... and she has been "reading" for days now... But everyday it gets easier and easier. We add new sounds and she gets excited and it doesn't slow her down... so far 21 lessons in to Teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons. She has learned the sounds for
m, s, a, e, t, r, d, i, th, and she learned c yesterday...
I was so happy I just had to video tape her today

BTW that is her reading yesterday and today's story... She is a reader! At 4 years 6 months old she is a reader... (oh and if anyone is interested I also used this same book with my boys who were also reading before kindergarten)

Excuse the messy hair we do our lessons before we get ready for the day LOL :)

Yesterday Hubby had a day off so I took some time to shower and have a moment alone... When I got back downstairs I noticed someone had been in my creamer... and left pretty convincing evidence as to who that had been.....
Yup the little blue eyed angel with creamer all over her mouth... (and feet LOL)

Run away!!!
