The girls went home Monday night, so I've been trying to catch up on so many things! I'm not there yet! Does one ever get there? I'm also trying to help April come up with ideas, lesson plans, and crafts to do with Winterlynn. April wants to turn the baby's room, which doesn't get used much, into a school room. I am so loving this cause I used to be a reading coach for 4-year-olds! I'm getting to use my 'stuff' again! That was my favorite of all jobs, but when the economy bottomed out a few years back, my job was cut since I wasn't tenured. Now my teaching certificate has expired, but I don't really want to go back unless I could work with 4-year-olds. If God wants me to, He can work that out. It's all in His hands! So at least I can work with my great-nieces, and that makes me happy!
If this weather stays cool, we will soon have a fire in the fireplace! I am excited to do that in one way, and in another, way, not so much! The cons are the smell and the rest of the house gets cold! The smell stays in here until the ashes are removed. I think I have an allergy to the smoke and ashes cause they make me cough. I guess everybody is that way. Well, Ran isn't. It doesn't seem to bother him, cause he always wants a fire in cold weather. He doesn't even mind chopping the wood! Go figure!
Whatever you do, stay safe and warm! Hope you all have a nice weekend! See ya'll next time! Blessings from Bama!
|What ya hiding behind you Winterlynn?
|Surprising how well she stays in the lines! Good job, Win!
|Riley does that a lot! I think she's praising the Lord!
|I love baking my bread in the Dutch oven! It tastes so good!
|Riley loves to look out at the dogs!
|Pumpkin cheesecake in the making!
|It had one more layer to go on. And I didn't take a photo of the finished project! It turned out good, but not good enough to make again. I used a recipe by King Arthur Flour.
|Win sure enjoyed licking the bowl.
|The child fell a lot while she was here. I heard a bang and grabbed my camera and found her like this. She wasn't hurt though. I couldn't help but laugh!
|She got outside without washing her face!
|Always has a baby under that arm!
|Everybody LOVES riding the golf-cart except for Layla!
|They love going fast down the driveway! I love how the photo turned out well in motion!
|Found a recipe for oven fries that are so delicious! I just spiced them a little too much!
|Such a sweetie! Look at those eyes!
|Amber brought pumpkins for the girls to paink. That's what they say instead of paint.

|They were really into painking.
|I guess they like blue pumpkins!
|Win trying to keep her pancakes away from Riley!
|Riley managed to get some anyway!
|She hasn't learned how to swing without me pushing.
|Four little monkeys swinging in the swings!
|Riley about to cook some letters.
