Snow.  We had SNOW on Friday!  And “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow” kept coming out of my mouth all day long.  Poor family…  It didn’t stick, but here’s photo evidence.  (And that would be the view of our schoolhouse outside our living room window.)P1050333

Veteran’s Day Parade.  Yes, I know we already posted about this, but I just love this photo from Auntie Audra’s phone – you can even see the candy flying.



Ingredients Grouping.  We recently started a sweet new nutrition curriculum called Vintage Remedies for Kids by Jessie Hawkins.  You will definitely be hearing more about this later. 

An activity in the first chapter is to have your child group together three ingredients to come up with a real food meal or snack.  I thought I’d share the little printable I put together in case you want to try it – just click on the photo.


Miss Esmé decided to make a stew using cheese sauce, tomato sauce, peanut butter, broccoli, and apples.  Yummy… ?

Cookies!  Thank you, Mel from Cake Walk, for the awesomest package!  Esmé went straight for the pink shoe, but all the cookies were gorgeous…

Tweety – It’s What’s For Dinner.  I’m thinking Ms. Tweety hasn’t been featured on our blog lately, so let’s remedy that…  She regularly makes an appearance on Pappa’s dinner plate, more often than not flinging food every which way.

Flame the cat was spotted on the stove, trying to reach Tweety’s cage when he felt his food needs were not met.  After severe consequences, he now won’t even look in the bird’s direction.

So, how’s your week been going?
