I've been on spring break all week, and I have accomplished so much! I tore apart two bedrooms and deep cleaned them floor to ceiling, moved furniture, tossed and tossed and tossed (donations and trash bags), and decorated. Unfortunately I now have huge baskets of laundry from Sahara's room and realized she just doesn't have … Continue reading Spring break
Year of Martha
Work never ends here
On the weekends, we always have something to do around here. Two weekends ago, we had to fix a gate that Ted noticed was ready to fall off the main pasture! Who wants to chase cattle? NOT US. We've been there and done that, and it's only fun the first two times! Luckily, the weather … Continue reading Work never ends here
Valentine’s Day Bag
Jake's school had their class party on the 17th, and he went through several ideas before settling on a floating Valentine's Day Bag to receive all his valentines from his classmates. We tried the Dollar Tree, but we got up to 15 balloons, and they still wouldn't lift the basket so we headed to Walmart … Continue reading Valentine’s Day Bag
Still no after…
...because we're still working on adapting something that's super old to something that's brand new, and that threw a kink in the whole thing today (January 1st) ! Tomorrow, though, there will be after pics because Ted and Isaiah figured out what to do and just have to get the piece needed.
There are two big projects in the works today at the farm. I'm so glad to get these things done! This hallway won't look the same soon... ...and neither will the kitchen!!! After pics will be posted tomorrow!
Elfie and Elfis escapades
Jake has been taking photos of the elves with the iPad and texting them to me. The elves also brought Brownie mix one day after school and a Lego Advent calendar for Jake one morning. He's really having fun with them this year!
Ted says I have a library book problem. I was putting away the books on the "public library books shelf" at home (What? Doesn't everyone have a library book spot at home??), and he saw THE LIST. THE LIST is what our library prints and gives out to show you what you have checked … Continue reading Library problem
Fun Christmas Activity-filled Day
Jake and I have had a blast today. First, we went to his school, and he enjoyed an hour at the Willy Wonks themed fun house on one side of the school while I did a little craft shopping on the other side. I even got a door prize that matched an item I bought … Continue reading Fun Christmas Activity-filled Day
Elfie and Elfis are up to shenanigans again!
I set Jake up with the Text Now app on the iPad so he could text his Dad, sisters, brother, and me. These are the past two texts I've received from him. LOL I'm really making myself slow down and enjoy it this holiday season. Jake is 10 years old now, and I know this … Continue reading Elfie and Elfis are up to shenanigans again!
Elfie and Elfis are back!
They were hiding out in Jake's shoe bin. He found them whIle getting ready to go see Santa at Michael's Ice Cream Shoppe. He was thrilled to see them again. We headed to the ice cream shoppe tonight for ice cream and Santa. This is a tradition Jake and I just started last year when … Continue reading Elfie and Elfis are back!
