Special Sound Parking Lot

We made this special sound parking lot last night. They had one of these on Pinterest for sight words, which would also work well. When we used this last night, Ike kept asking for me to give him another special sound . . . And another . . . And another. Learning is fun!

After loading up the car and rolling out of the Costco parking lot, Ike said, "Dad! Let's juice this baby up!" We didn't know what he was talking about so we asked. Apparently it means to gas up the truck.

Bill's Duck

Bill went hunting with his buddy right after work yesterday and shot a duck he's planning on mounting.

Sweet Isaac

I woke up this morning with a headache and it didn't take Ike long to notice. He brought me my vitamins, some ice water, and he wrote out some instructions on taking the "medicine." He also made me this cute little card. I love him.

Heard some curious noises coming from the kitchen so I went to investigate. Noah had figured out how to get a second helping of dinner. Funny.

Someday I'm Going to Miss This

I'm going to miss the day when the little chairs stop lining up against the cabinets so mischievous little people can see what I'm doing. It's one of the cutest things ever.

French Food

Okay. So I keep roasting my chickens with their back side up. Obviously I have a lot to learn . . . Regardless of the mishap, these dishes were fun to make and fun to eat!

My Boys

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Eager little Noah came running into the kitchen as soon as he heard the blender fire up. He waited impatiently for me to finish snapping the photos of the drink so he could have a taste. Poor little thing. I think it was worth the wait though.
