A brief language lesson

It's two days before Thanksgiving and I woke up with a horrible cold at 4 am.  I'm trudging along through homeschool lessons and come to this one for the 7 year old.
Thanks be to my Heavenly Father who knew I needed this today.

In which I find carrots on the step stool

Squdge told me he needed a peeler.  I wonder if he actually ate any carrots or just had a good time peeling them...

I'll be putting him to work next week peeling potatoes for Thanksgiving.

Happy 4th birthday Peach!

She wanted chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles.

And a cupcake belly.  :P

Who in their right mind invented clear Legos?

I'm almost certain they don't have children who leave their toys on the floor.  I don't know how many I've absorbed into my bloodstream through my feet.

We <3 granola!

I've posted my recipe for granola cereal before.  This pic is before baking and is a triple batch.  After baking and cooling, I add raisins.  This is the first time I've made it with cloves, nutmeg, and ginger added.  My house smells amazing!

Here is a pan of granola bars from Monday.  This is also made in my mega-pan.  I think it's 13"x17".  This is the second double-batch we've made in 10 days and I added craisins this time.  Yum!

I can only fit 12 in each of these freezer containers.

These granola bars came out to $.15 a piece, are bigger than store-bought, and are very filling.  I got the recipe from here -->

Go try it!  Your family will love them!

Argh matey! Thar be cuteness!

After my shower this morning, I came downstairs and found a monkey-toting pirate doing the dishes!

Out of the mouths of babes

Gabbers, Peach, and Biscuit have been playing in the soft green grass, under the big shady tree and on the porch at Grandma and Papa's for four hours this morning.  

I gathered up Biscuit, changed her diaper and laid her down for a nap.  

A little later, Peach came skipping in the house singing, 

"I am descendant of God.  And he has sent me here."

Papa earns big cheers for dinner

One of the perks of visiting Grandma and Papa's house at the end of summer is Harward Farms' corn on the cob.
"Corn!" Peach excitedly cheers.
This is Biscuit's first ever corn on the cob.  She loved it.
Hammy loves it too!  And he was a pretty good sport helping to clean up the carnage.  Hahaha!

If only I could take some back home...

Biscuit gets a turn sitting at the bar.

Biscuit has discovered, along with her older siblings, why it's cool to sit at the bar at Grandma's house.

1.  You're taller-- something she doesn't experience much being the youngest and having short genes.

2.  You get your plate first at snacks or meals.

3.  You have close access to all the goodies Grandma leaves on the counter for the grandkids to eat.
