March Into April!

We registered one grandchild for kindergarten this fall.  He was so excited!  As we were leaving the school, he called back over his shoulder "Call me!" to the person who had given him a tour of the school.




Sister is so sad she isn't 5 yet.  She so wanted brother to be 4 again on his birthday.



One more year of preschool, then she will get to go to school like brother.  


March was brother's birthday month.  He loves ladybugs.  I found these candy ladybugs at Hobby Lobby made by Wilton.


Saw this idea on Pinterest and made fruit cups for his preschool class for snack time on his birthday.  Their teacher loved it.


I'll end with a picture of some biscuits I made from a recipe I tried from Note Songs blog, by Shelia.  I don't have the link, ( not sure how to do it at the moment)but if you stop by there you can search for it.  They were good and easy!

Oh, February!

January has just flown by!  I spent most of the month with sick ones.  Not fun, but they got extra snuggles and special treats.  February started with a Big Birthday at our house.


My writing has a lot to be desired.  The grandchildren loved the flames coming out of the rocket.  They did help him put out the fire.  


We have had a little snow and some really cold (-1) weather.  That means play time inside and no preschool one day.  


The princess, her wand, and her favorite hat.  Cavin likes to "tell" her how to build things.  You can tell that doesn't go over very well.  

Looking forward to nicer weather!

There's a Cold Wind Blowing!

The wind blew really hard last night.  This is what we woke up to this morning.




The city workers, neighbors, and volunteers have been working all day trying to remove these tumbleweeds.  They covered some of our neighbors front and back yards, roads were blocked, and people were blocked in their homes and driveways.  Tumbleweeds are NOT easy to remove!  

The winds brought in much cooler weather.  Cool weather always makes me want to bake something.  A nice warm peach cobbler!


Easy Cobbler

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the above.  Add to a baking dish (spray with a cooking spray).  Top this with 2 cups of fresh or canned peaches ( or any of your favorite fruits).  When I use canned (not in heavy syrup) fruit.  I use two reg. size cans and pour the juice off one can and add 1/2 cup sugar.  When using fresh fruit, add 2 cups or less of sugar with the fruit.  Now, slice a stick of margarine or butter over the peaches.  Don't stir.  Just place in the middle of your oven and bake for just over 1/2 an hour or until browned. The cobbler crust will rise up over the peaches.  Take out and sprinkle some sugar on the top.  Serve warm with ice cream or cold.  It's an easy recipe to remember.  Add cinnamon to apples, almond flavoring to cherries, just make it your own according to your families tastes.  

Have a safe, warm, happy week!

Santa's a Little Late?

We are a little behind at our house.  Everything has just been very busy here.  Grand children have been sick on and off since before Christmas with ear infections and such.  We had a wonderful Christmas!  Loved having all 3 of our grand children with us!  Our daughter in law made Santa pancakes for Christmas morning.  It was similar to one we saw on Pinterest, here.
Our version:




They loved them!

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you can't think of things to be thankful for this year, just read the feathers of Lily's Turkey.  She is even thankful for germs!

Still On The Merry-Go-Round Of Life

Can't believe it has been so long since I posted!  We are staying busy and having some fun with the grand kids.  Here they are going for a walk together.


Cavin and Lily are both in preschool! 



Maybe I can find some time for a few projects?

And making messes!

And cooking.

Being very cold!

Watching movies.

Being creative!
