Sunday Afternoon.

Oh, wouldn't it be nice to be able to take a little nap..... But i got in to the family room last so there are two little bodies in my chair. I just checked... the are still two little bodies there but now one of them is a dog.
The Primary had their yearly program at church today. They all did an amazing job, i can tell you that. And yes I might be a bit prejudice, but truly MY KIDS where the cutest, brightest, smartest. most adorable kids there. They did such a good job and I was very proud of all of them.

Here's little preview of what I'll be doing tomorrow afternoon.... Will there be picture tomorrow? Well, it might be a day or two before I have my next post ready for you... because tomorrow is "Harvest day"!

Saving Money by making it yourself.

I see all these really cute hats online that people are selling for anywhere from $25 to $45 and I really don't understand that anyone would pay that much for them. I guess if you have the money, but still... there are other things that i would rather spend my money on, I can tell yo that. 
But you see I REALLY like them and thought the kids would too, so...... 
What to do? What to do? 
Well there is my stash of yarn. 
When people get rid of yarn, I always offer to give it a good home.
Here is what I've made for the kids.

3 out of 4 have grape smiles

 One eyed monster


3 eyed monster

Kitty Cat

So if anyone ever has yarn that needs a good home, let me know i will put it to use.

My First Little Baby Turned 8

 I thought I better share some more pictures with you all.
End of September Arilyn turned 8, which is a very important milestone. When we turn 8 you see, we can be baptized. Arilyn was very excited and for a special birthday party we have decided that this is the one time in their little lives that we will throw them a party at Chuck E. Cheese. Also she had her ears pierced as you all saw in the last post.
So here you go... the pictures from her party the day before her birthday and pictures from her baptism -on her birthday.

Party at Chuck E's!
Pizza with Sister and friend Nessa.

 Bedste and Grandpa Les
 Oma and uncle Jay,

 Mermaid cake made by yours truly.

 Some of the family gabbing while the kids were playing on the games.

 Cake time.

 Nessa made Arilyn some hair things, she loved them.

 From Oma she got a crystal with a pearl in it.

 Bedste gave her a hot-glue-gun (now I can have mine in peace) and sweater she had made.

Arilyn's Baptism

 Rhiannon was almost as excited as Arilyn about her baptism.

Yes I know... I have been missing in action. But no longer.
I am back and ready to get down and share all the things that go on here at the farm What's going on with the critters, the orchards, the gardens, the family, what are we learning about in our homeschooling journey. We have decided to call it "Life-Learning" for the time being. that just kind of explains it, I think.
Arilyn got her ears pierced the day before her 8th birthday.

Our cow had a bull calf, he sure is cute!

We added 2 pigs to the farm

Blueberry picking was a hit

No that's not a giant berry, it's white rock.

Strawberries from our garden

Sidewalk paint. Three ingredients: cornstarch, water and food colouring. 

Just a little recap of the last couple of months for you.
