Here's Reba!

Thanks for all the guesses as to what Reba drew for you.  Here she is to tell you a little bit more about it...
I guess her fish was quite obvious to most of you.

Until next time...

Budding Artist - The Answer

First off, I want to apologize for taking so long to reveal the answer to Dallas' artwork.  I meant to record him giving the answer last Friday, but my camera battery was dead.  He (and Reba) spent the weekend with Gram and Pa, and then I was sick on Monday and Tuesday - following Daddy having been sick, as well as Reba.  Anywho...we are all on the mend, and thankfully, Dallas side-stepped the stomach bug.

Secondly, I want to say thank you to everyone who submitted a guess.  We had a lot of fun reading them.

So...Remember Dallas drawing?
Here's Big D to tell you a little more about it...
Congratulations to Pa for guessing correctly!

Until next time...guess what Reba has drawn for you all!

Little Miss, the Fashionista
We are currently getting about 10 eggs a day from our chickens, so I decided to use some up by making deviled eggs...and I don't even like them, but Doug loves them!
My helpers were at it again...
by helping peel the boiled eggs
The other day I went to tuck Reba in for nap time, but she was already gone
Until next time...

Budding Artist

Almost each time Dallas comes home from preK, he has some kind of artwork.  Usually it is a coloring sheet  or a letter paper, but every once in a while, it is a free style drawing paper.  Check out what he brought home last week...
Let me translate what it says.  Starting at the top: "Mama", "Daddy", "Reba", "Dallas".  He told me that he did it all on his own, and he did the best he could on writing the names (aka: spelling)

Did you also notice this little gem?
I knew it had to be something because his drawings are typically longer lines, not shapes.  Any guesses?

You know what...I just decided to not reveal the answer.  I'm wanting to hear some of your guesses, so please, leave a comment as to what you might think it is :)

This should be interesting!

Until next time...

RC Monster Tractor

Everyone's been enjoying the radio control tractor that Santa brought; especially this past Friday afternoon when the weather was in 60's!

Enjoy some videos of the kiddos playing

It is a very rare occasion when I iron clothes, but last weekend Dallas (yes, my 4 year old) had a couple shirts that needed to be pressed.  Reba thought ironing was the coolest thing she had ever seen, so she decided to press some of Lucy's clothes! (and yes, she does have on pants - shorts, actually)
Dallas went back to school on Monday after his two week Christmas vacation.  Do you think there is much change from the first day of Pre-K?
There has also been more painting this week
and a slumber party in the kitchen!
Lastly, Dallas had been asking Daddy for a new hat.  Not any old hat, but a DeKalb hat.  And wouldn't you know, Daddy came through...
Until next time...

Hot Chocolate...We Got It!

Once we are done playing outside in the snow, the kiddos always want to warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and a snack once we are inside!

Until next time...

Snow Much Fun

As I mentioned "last week", Dallas and Reba were able to spend a few nights with Pa and Gram while Daddy and I worked on Dallas' bedroom.

Dallas was very excited to help Pa move snow in his driveway
I'm not sure if Reba is really excited or really mad
Gram found a Cincinnati Red's blanket for Dallas' bed at her house
Looks like Dallas made pancakes for everyone one morning
Until next time...
