What will the New Year Bring?

December has been a little rough on me. (I swear I didn't pray for patience or anything.) On the first day of December I was trying to put some more bedding in the chicken's new abode. On my way back to put it away in the shed, I fell through down into our root cellar.

It was an odd experiance for me, one minute I was throwing the pine shavings in the shed, and the next I was standing directly below where I was. We don't use the cellar yet because the ladder is unsafe. So there I was stuck in a hole.  As luck would have it, I had my cell phone so I called the house and had the kids bring me a flashlight. It was around 4 pm and quite dark in the cellar.

  The pictures are not very good, but technically I was a damsel in distress so don't ask for better quality pics. It's hard to see, but that is a sledge hammer right over my head. It is held in place by a pitch fork that had become wedged as the flooring gave way. Needless to say I was in a precarious situation, ma…

Happy Holidays!

Charles asked for a strawberry cake for his 5th birthday. This was what I came up with, 
He helped me make it which is starting to become the tradition. We had a nice quiet birthday at home. Here's the plane Lizzy designed and sewed for him. It is affectionately known as the "Duck plane."

All he really wanted was to play with his cousins. Luckily we usually get together around his birthday. We had a wonderful time celebrating with the Martins for Thanksgiving.

It was a nice break and Charles got to celebrate his birthday with Junon and Sean. He'd been asking to have them come over to do his pinata for weeks.We played in the park and caught up on each other's lives. It was a great weekend. We had sushi again and the girls are getting really good at rolling them Rex has taught them well! Here's Jessica preparing the rice.
