Summer Snow!

The boys had so much fun playing in the "summer snow." They made a summer snow man, castles and made up games using a penny they would hide etc. They made a tower and put a penny on top then used kid knives to cut around it until they penny fell (loser's cut makes the penny fall.) They played in for hours! Next time I will have them do it outside though because it got a bit messy.

It is just 12 cups of all-purpose flour and 1 1/2 cups of baby oil.

Child's Crown Pattern

Here is a pattern for a child's crown I made. You can print it out on normal 8.5 x 11 cardstock. I am letting the boys decorate it to wear for our New Year's celebration tonight. Feel free to use it. Happy New Year!

Healthy-ish Cupcakes

Yesterday, I made 60 healthy-ish cupcakes for Nicholas and Lucas's school birthday parties. The recipe was passed along by Nick's teacher and I am not sure where it came from originally.  All the kids (and myself) loved them. Here is the recipe:

Applesauce Cake/Cupcakes

2 1/2 cups unbleached white flour

1 1/12 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup honey or sugar

2 cups applesauce

1 egg

1/2 cup oil

Mix together flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl combine the honey/sugar, applesauce, egg and oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to mix. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan or make them into cupcakes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes if using 9x13 or 18 minutes if doing cupcakes.

Picture Day

This year we opted out of the traditional 8 x 10 school portrait and instead I took photographs of the boys myself. I uploaded and ordered them through Persnickety Prints. I am excited to get them in the mail and hang them on our wall soon.

Nick's Tooth

Nick lost his first tooth Oct. 22 2011. He is almost 6. He was very excited about it. I made the boys this moster pillow. They put their tooth in the mouth pocket until the tooth fairy exchanges it for some money. They love it!

Jayden as Thomas Edison

Cutie Pie Jayden was the lead guy (Thomas Edison) in a skit at school this morning. He had to speak in front of the whole school K-10th grade. He and his buddies did such a good job my eyes were tearing up a little. He never ceases to amaze me.

John Adams Academy Boys

Today is a big day! Nicholas and Lucas start kindergarten and Jayden starts second grade. They are going to a brand new school The John Adams Academy. I take them to school at 8am and pick up Nick and Luke at 12 and Jayden at 3:40. When I dropped them off we did a scavenger hunt around the classroom and then the teacher read The Kissing Hand book. I can't wait to hear all about their first day.

Lucas's Dream

"Mom, I had the best dream. Jesus came and helped me climb the biggest tree then he took me to the temple and then he took me to Target to get a toy. He helped me to run really fast and then gave me a jet pack to I could go all the way up to the sky. Then when it was time to sleep God came and slept right next to me!"

Reward and Chore System

We have a new reward and chore system in our house. It is working really well. When one of the boys does something we like, he gets a stick. They each have their own color of stick so they can not get mixed up. If he does something we don't like a stick can be taken away. Each stick is worth a certain amount of money and at the end of the week he can cash it in.
