bonjour.i'm so excited to be almost through with the Holiday Sessions. it was a fantastic year, but i gotta admit i'm eager to move onto the next phase: Christmas Parties!!!!! the weather has been so cold so i picked up some apple juice while on a grocery run yesterday to make cider for me and the kids. nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and star anise added a little festive flavour to these steamy sweet drinks.
gates on both sides and a track with a brake control to stop the trains while they get cleaned.
Moses is also able to recite the entire introduction to the Lorax. he has illustrated the intro here. the middle one is my favourite with the truffula trees decorated with shark stamps and the brown barbaloots. on the left is the boy talking to the Onceler and on the right you can see a very happy Swammy Swan flying the clean blue sky.
some cozy childhood comfort food on this chilly icy day: Golden Noodles
for the most part, Moses is the picky one. that is unless we are having these noodles. he ate 3 full bowls, more than any of us ate. and he cleaned the bowl leaving nothing but residual grease. he even told me i didn't need to put them in the dishwasher because they were so clean.
kevin embarked on a pretty rad project with the kids
who needs gingerbread man cookie cutters when dad is willing to trace every detail of the kids drawings of gingerbread men?!!!!
this one's got a distinguished moustache (chloe)
giant monster by Chloe (this one is about 6 inches tall!)
photos to come of the other characters! we didn't get a chance to decorate them tonight as we enjoyed a chill communal dinner of tacos over at the McLeod-Knight residence, followed by Despicable Me 2. nothing like good company during these short winter days. thanks again for having us!
