Candles, Messes and Kids

Papa Paul took us out to Culvers when he was here.   My kiddos love this place.  Can we say gift cards!  The kids ask for gift cards for Culvers for Christmas. It works out great.

Everyone loves taking baths with this kid. At one point he bathed with everyone in the house except Dave and I.  All in one day.  He is the cleanest kid in the house. We only put a little water in there but still.  He likes to just play with everyone and playing with water is even better.  

Uno before school always rocks.  Way better than Monopoly before school.  

This was our huge project we did as a family.  Great for home schooling. It was one of those "offers for help" that I gave for a wedding.   

 40 pounds of this

lots of burlap

lots of lace

lots of tins


120 later...

This was a lot of work but it was a lot of fun. This brought back so many memories for me.  I use to make candles out of high school and it was so much fun.  These were made for a good friend's wedding.  We are so excited for them and their new life together. So young and cute!

this is what happens when I get up and get my food.... and the kids take the camera

Making cut out cookies was a disaster with this guy.  Lots of fun though.  Dave showered him off after this episode

These two are alike in so many ways....

Made my own chocolate almond butter..delicious in our peanut butter/protein smoothies.  

This little star loves to paint.  Just making messes is his middle name. The cheese is on stand bye while he paints.

 He chose a new spot for his time outs.  He likes to hide under a coat instead of face the corner. 

Thankful that the Lord has blessed us with such a great week.  Rainy gloomy weather but we are having so much fun home schooling and hanging out inside. Getting things ready for Grandma Mimi and Papa Julio to come.  The big kids are so excited for them to see Gabe.  They love him dearly. Have a great weekend!
