Oh Home Ec, you are a TRUE LOVE!!!

Sam was so excited to have Home Economics as an elective this quarter! It seems that all of the kids look forward to this class and Sam finally got his chance!  Their first area of study was house chores.  He had a different chore each night for the different rooms of the house and I had to sign off to say that he did it.  This was kitchen night:

Last week was cooking week and their specialty was Monkey Bread.  Sam was so eager to show us his cooking skills that he wanted to make his bread one night after dinner, but I was able to talk him into cooking for us on Saturday morning.  So this is what we woke up to:

And the bread was delicious!!!  Now if we can teach him to scramble eggs and make coffee...

Coming next week!!!! 

 (If you need me I'll be in my closet collecting 
clothes that need to be darned!!)

Proud of my Home Ec Pro~

Snow much fun!!!

February brought us several snow covered days; causing the kids to miss seven days of school.  But, if you can believe it, they weren't too upset about that!  We definitely had our fun with:


making snow angels,

 making snow ice cream,

and EATING snow ice cream!

 Hey, look!  They get along when it snows!!!!

We took a ride down memory lane and watched family movies!

The first snowstorm that came through took us all by surprise and it was just one catastrophe after another.  I had my own little panic attack because John was out of town for work, but in the end everything was ok and we all made it under our roof after about 4 hours.  The craziness of the whole incident has made Atlanta the brunt of a lot of jokes and this is one of the best one's I've seen!  

One of the snow storms came on Valentine's day, so we spread LOVE all around!  

in the kitchen,

and since we couldn't get to the store to buy cards, we made our own!  All of us!

And not to brag, but really.....look how creative mine was!!!

So, February was an odd month, but I'm so glad that we were able to have some fun family times!!!
