Remember how I said I had helping hands on bread making day? Remember how I clarified that they went on to find more entertaining things to do than just make bread??
Well, this is what you get when a 12 year old boy helps in the kitchen…
Let’s get another look at that.
Maybe take a bite??
Never a dull moment!
Yesterday I made bread rolls for Thanksgiving. While I was putting together these…
Horse Girl decided to make this…
I had no doubt that she would pull it off.
Ready to bake!
It took a long time but the result was well worth it. I should mention that Grandma also helped form all the kernels of wheat.
Kaelyn and I went to the mall today to do some serious shopping. This kid tagged along. I don’t know why, but he did! We kept it real:)
I love this kid!
Ok, you can be in the pictures too!
I love this kid too!
Now while I’ve always known Kaelyn was a little artist, I had no idea Kendrick had any artistic talents until this year. He started bringing home amazing drawings and he started doodling on notebook paper, and I was very impressed with what he came up with!
Here are his displays at the Art Fair.
We have known Kaelyn has artistic talent since she was a toddler. She has blown us away through the years with her various creations using all types of materials.
The kids had the opportunity of having art class this spring, taught by a local architect and artist and they both love it!
They showcased their drawings and paintings tonight at the Art Fair.
I haven’t been blogging personal things lately. It has been all I could do to stay on top of new puppy photos and announcements, so the personal stuff gets put on the back burner.
But we had a nice family gathering a couple weekends ago and all the grandparents flew to Spokane to attend Grandparent’s Weekend at UCA, the Academy that Darien attends.
The weekend was filled with music from the choir, choraliers, band, and the orchestra. The gymnastic team also performed. I’m excited that all of my kids will be attending next school year, and we will be living just a few miles from the school!
It was nice for everyone to be together and to get a mini vacation away from the chores of life.
Darien always looks sharp in his tux. He now towers over both grandmas, affectionately known as “Mema” and “Mom”.
My daughter is a budding artist! She has had no formal training. I think she is off to a great start!!
The kids have been busy at school. The other day I had some time to wander through the hallway. Look what I found!
She can’t help it. She has to create whenever there is an opportunity.
My mind is preparing for winter. There is nothing I can do to hold it back. Like it or not, it will happen, and according to weather experts, it sounds like it could be one with more snow than usual.
I was looking through my phone today and found these photos. This was a fun evening. Shinanigan had her first experience in the lake and she didn’t love it, but didn’t hate it either. Kaelyn had a great time trying to get her to go deep enough in the water so she would be forced to swim. Each time Shinanigan got deep enough to need to swim, she would turn toward shore, and bounce back onto the beach, with Kaelyn hanging onto her mane for dear life!
We all enjoyed watching the show and finally, watching the sunset.
