Pepper in a Manger

The Manger must have looked like a cozy place to snooze. A whole house to nap in and Pepper picked the Nativity. He's so cute.

Hands on Museum fun

Hands on Fun is great! Lola and I had so much fun with the animal spacial awareness game. We played it again and again. Then Lola found the construction station where she hammered and hammered. She was so focused on getting all the nails in the board. (Gives me an idea for Christmas...) It’s nice getting to the museum when it’s not busy.

Happy Thanksgiving

 A wooly worm was a nice treat to find on a warm Thanksgiving Day. We had a lovely Thanksgiving meal with family. How nice to share a meal and listen to stories. After dinner we hiked up the hill in the country and enjoyed the fresh country air. Lola also loved playing corn hole with everyone. It was special to have four generations together to be thankful together. After a day of running around the girl was out before we hit the highway.

Pre Thanksgiving workout

We had a lovely morning visiting with friends from church this morning and we invited them to 'school' with us. We did our hymn study and Bible study then cooked up some Indian corn snack. After that we made corn dolls from husks. After lunch we headed down to Lexington because the boys were going to play golf with Granny and Papaw, then later go to the basket ball game. The girls meanwhile visited the park and made a 'ham' run for tomorrows feast. What a gorgeous day to play at the park. Love watching the Doll do the monkey bars.

Pepper is caught in the act

We've been having our concerns about this little guy, wondering why he is sooo weird and hyper and odd. Well, this morning I caught him in the act of drinking my coffee. Not just tasting it, nope... head in gulping it down.... I guess, the cream was more than the coffee. 

New perspective on apple slices

How often do you slice apples the round way? Sometimes it's nice to slice it up a little different. I used the small metal cookie cutters to core the middles:)
