Bubble Bath Anyone?

One of the joys of being a stay at home mom is letting your kids play in a bubble bath at 10:00 a.m. The boys had been using shampoo to create bubbles in the tub so I finally bought some bubble bath and they were anxious to try it out. Next time, I will take the bubble bath away after I put a bit in so they don't add too much like they did here. They all had a blast!

Welcome Fall!

We started five years ago celebrating the fall and spring equinox. Last night we had our annual fall party. It is always a family party even though the kids have had many friends who have wanted to attend. Each time we have a fall or spring party our kids get really excited. Last night we started with a poem about leaves and then assembled a pumpkin puzzle. Then we enjoyed a no-bake cherry cheesecake while we made "corn" by coloring and attatching popcorn.

Ben and the boys are working on the puzzle while Madeline just enjoys the time together.

Jacob working on his corn.

Yum, Cheesecake!

We ended by looking at scrapbook pages of our past fall activities and Jacob insisted on taking a picture.

Tough Times

Do you ever feel like this?

And then try to make it better with chocolate?

Only to find out chocolate doesn't help?

I hope your having a better day than Madeline!
