Snow Days

video
This is what our kids got to do for most of their Christmas break. We got an unusually large amount of snow or our area and they got to ride their quad for two weeks in the snow. They played so much that they wore themselves out and wanted to stay in the house at about day 5. They pulled each other around the yard about 1000 times. They had a total blast for their break. It is back to school soon though! Yes that would be their Dad laughing when Addison hit the fence. Such sympathy.

Christmas Cookies!

We had to take a break from school and have our annual Christmas cookie baking day.

The day that we destroy the kitchen in the pursuit of those yummy soft, and sweet cookies.

Addison & Logan are great cookie bakers. They love the eat the dough, the cookies and the frosting. It is a wonder we even end up with any cookies at all!


We had a lot of fun making the mess. It is all worth it for the memories. They tasted great by the way! Merry Christmas.

Thanksgiving Crafting


For Thanksgiving we decided that the table needed to be a little more festive this year, so we found some fun crafts to do together.


We went to our trusty crayola.com and found some fun projects. We made corn silverware holders and mini turkeys.



We cut, and cut and cut, and then did a little gluing. That means a lot glopped everywhere. They were fun to do and were great on our Thanksgiving table

Space Mobile


We have begun studying space for science now and are having fun learning about our great solar system. We have learned that there is no air on the moon, the temperature of the sun is 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and that Venus is dry and hot. That kids have really enjoyed learning about all these things. We decided to make a moon and stars mobile, courtesy of crayola.com.
