Christmas Eve

- Huff
Today I think is possibly the most special....
Of coarse Christmas is awesome! yes!
But the magic is so strong today...Santa is really coming tonite, how will he get here, will he come, is he really watching me?....and what is in all those pretty wrapped boxes under the tree? It's the unknown before the actual event, the anticipation....that is keeping them on the edge of their seats with excitement.
Get out your hot cocoa and have a Merry Christmas!

Family and friends.

 Samuel loves helping with the dishes.
 In the evenings we love to let Samuel lead a game of chase/copycat  we follow his lead on everything...it makes him feel SO important. This is a picture right after all of the games & now getting ready for bedtime.

Much going on?

Wow, the farm trip was nice!  Lets see, a girl from the class was thrown from a horse (amazingly she is OK), Huff got bitten by a goat & a cat sprayed on the classroom cooler. It was a memorable trip. Huff was tired & I was too! Thanks Jeremy for watching Samuel!!!!

Tomorrow is a big day for Huff....first time to ever ride a school bus. We (yes, mama too) are going to a Farm past Stapleton called Bebe farms right on The Dauerwaldin land.....hayrides, animals & picking a pumpkin!
ALSO! Baxter will be 7 on the 21st. Wow, we have a very important Jedi training party. He is soo sooo excited about this. He is asking all guests to donate to The Haven. (its a no kill animal shelter) Mama & Papa have promised to buy him anything (within reason). He also gets to take all the donations to The Haven with us & gets "the credit" for that....the feel good credit! We are so proud of you Baxter! You work hard at school, being a good kid, trying hard in sports....we are so lucky.

All about bread.

http://www.thesimpledollar.com/2007/11/04/homemade-bread-cheap-delicious-healthy-and-easier-than-you-think/

I tried this recipe & it is great!
My first time to ever make bread.
Only 6  ingredients instead of 40.

Summertime exercise

When you get tired take a break.
Here is my little monkey! Always great for the arm  muscles.
Going to  park is always fun!
 Huff brought his pet bat, Anakin.
Not sure where to exercise, go to a track!
Bring some water!
We ride our bikes to the park! Then run, play & swing! Yall have been going to this park for 5 years now!
Getting a thrill ride on the black spider & the hurricane!
"Let's do it again!"
If you don't know where to go...stay in your backyard & get your exercise there!

Wow, Nana this is going to be so much fun! I can't wait!
Make sure to stay cool with plenty of water.
I love this place!
Waterville IS a blast!
