At any rate, I have tried to keep my camera on hand, to snap up some moments. Here is what the last few weeks have looked like:
Why the cords you might wonder....well, Solomon has this freaky obsession with them and he pulls them out and starts plugging them in, or leaves a trail of them wherever he goes....yay!
|These are the eggs my dear friend brought me from her farm.....|
|Here is what was left of the eggs the next morning.....look how bright they are.....so fresh and so yummy! I can't wait till we can have our own chickens. I just know Kurt is on board after eating these, right Kurt? Kurt? Hello?|
|Here is the random pie crust I started making before i realized I didn't have the ingredients I needed to make the rhubarb pie I thought I would make.|
|And so I started a new crust hoping to make a different pie and then realized you were supposed to bake the nuts BEFORE adding the chocolate. Doh.|
|Solomon, happy that one of his siblings gave him an open container of chocolate pudding to use for finger painting. Yay.|
|Solomon, trying to sit on the wood holder, after he put it up on the hearth.....|
|Notice Solomon's wire necklace as Liam tries brushing his hair....|
|"Uh, what do you think you are doing?"|
|Lily on a special dress day for her school.....we especially liked the addition of the earmuffs under her sun hat....|
This next series explains why I can't open my windows this spring.....
|It was when he got to this point and was trying to stand up in the windowsill that I dropped the camera to help him narrowly avoid disaster!|
|Kurt and Liam checking out the annual opening of the hydrant....|
|The baby turtle I found on a run.....why take a picture when you can just take the whole turtle?.....more on this story later....|
|Liam trying to LICK! THE BABY TURTLE!.....seriously.|
|Solomon declaring himself king of the mountain, on top of the violin cases.....wielding a cello bow.|
|"I was just riding my little car by the unlocked cabinet when all of a sudden the baking equipment just JUMPED OUT IN FRONT OF ME! What's a one year old to do Mom?"|
|Why is he so happy?|
|Because his sister gave him THE ENTIRE POT OF MAC-N-CHEESE.....|
And finally, how do you know when you may have ordered too much mulch for your landscaping?
When you put a double layer over everything in your yard and you still have this pile left over:
|That's Kurt taking mulch over to our neighbors yard to put under their trees.....|
|Next time we probably will get a little less.....by like half....|
