Random pictures from our day...

We had a rather busy Saturday today and everyone accomplished something.

Her is Anne Michal with her granola that she made. We forgot to double it so will have to make more very soon.
Elizabeth made toffee for her Sunday School party tomorrow.

I put my crockpot to work making yogurt.

And this is my new BFF. Elizabeth adn Emma named her Ruby. She helped me make vegetable soup today.

Emma wanted to make some Christmas ornaments for her Sunday School teachers.

Creed is excellent at making a mess and does his job well.
And we never have to worry about dehydration with him because he drinks plenty of water. He kept switching cups.

And this is a hint of the advent calendar that will hopefully finish very soon!

And if you wonder where Jack wa and what he was doing, he mostly just laid low recovering from a stomach bug, but he did read the directions to Anne Michal for making the granola. I thought that was pretty cool, but didn't get a picture!

Christmas Craft #2 --Christmas Pajamas

We tried something new this year. I have had some fabric crayons sitting in my craft stash for a long time so we gave them a try. You use them by coloring a picture on plain paper and then transferring it to fabric by ironing it on. They drew and colored their own pictures (other than Creed) and then we transferred them to squares of fabric which I then appliqued onto t-shirts. We picked out the flannel last year after Christmas and as you can tell by Jack's too long of shorts rather than pants I didn't buy enough!!!!
