And the last while.....

Russian Teacakes and Dutch Oven Bread
Dutch oven bread in process .....

A crowd of children,rocks and paint equals lots of rock masterpieces!

It might be small but on Christmas night a lot of folks enjoyed this bird! Lee was given this as a gift by someone he's remodeling for.It was our first time roasting a turkey but it went quite well. I even got a huge soup out of the carcass.

Here is our "Wren Bird".

This shot is dark-sorry.

Here the light is shining on the lit up piece.Lights are lining the walls of the cavern.It's illegal to touch the cavern growths so one has to be very careful with small children while inside.

Jess and Alex in front of a display. It was nicely done and even had "touch tables" so we could be hands on.

This is Alex in the room adjacent to the entrance of caverns near our home.Lee's brother was in town and gifted us some passes to go on this tour.We had left our camera at home so we had to make do with the dinky cell phone camera.We still had a wonderful time with a lovely guide.

The baby is doing well though she is a stern child.She's definitely very stingy with smiles,preferring to stare in a penetrating fashion.But it doesn't seem to diminish our love for her!
The children are all growing and learning.Jess loves to carry the baby-I can tell it makes him feel very important.They vacuum,clean the bathroom sink,keep toys picked up and set the table and even sweep up after a meal so my load is definitely lighter than the last time we had a baby in the house.Plus they are my "legs" for countless little errands.For this I am very grateful.
We are working on learning the sounds of the consanants right now besides all the little projects we do.Wait till I tell you about boiling turkey bones in laundry detergent on the stove for my dinosaur bone liking lads!
Well,I have a load of baby laundry to fold yet and it's already late...... Goodnight! Marcella
