Kitchen with the Kids

 Grace has been after me for weeks to paint this rock.  She stole borrowed it from Grandma Shupe's landscaping back in July.  In case you were worried about it too, you can rest easier now.....


Once again...I have NO explanation.


John and Emily have been busy today too.  They each had a friend over to play for most of the day.  Emily has been bustin' a gut wanting to use her new cookbook that Grandma Simms gave her.

She enlisted her friend's help to make a meatloaf for dinner.  We then enlisted the help of both friends to stay and sample the meatloaf for dinner.  I'm guessing she did pretty well considering there was none left.

 Here the taste testers were discussing the various qualities that make a good meatloaf stand out from the average meatloaf.

OK, I lied.  I think they were talking about who cheated at a game of four square earlier in the evening.


Emily and Grace also helped me make meatballs today.

Grace quit, declaring the meat was "nasty" to touch.


 Emily finished her gingerbread graham cracker house finally.  She kind of lost interest in it once she did the minimum to it.  Here's the final product...

Welcome to her humble home. 

 Mr. Snowman can show you around.

Actually, he'll just have to point to things seeing as how Emily didn't make him any legs.

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.
