Bringing the Dirt to the Kitchen Table

Look at the cute helpers we found to help us start seeds today! They were pretty excited about the fact that we had dirt at the kitchen table!

They were actually quite helpful...Jackson has been so hard to get to come inside these days. Jordan asked him "Do you want to go do dirt inside?" and he came running in the house chanting "Do Dirt, Do Dirt". Aside from trying to eat some off his shovel he did really good! Grace was really into planting the seeds and insisted that I let her do it by herself. I ended up letting her, but supervised pretty closely. I hope they're this excited and helpful when it's time to weed the garden!

For Freedom

It's a little late, but I wanted to share a video that Jordan made to recognize the sevicemen from our church (some are relatives of our members). You can see it on youtube if you click HERE. The song is 'For Freedom' by Avalon and our choir sang it for Thanksgiving with this video playing in the background. It's very moving...I hope you will enjoy it.

Cowboy Jackson

Grace was a cowgirl for Halloween. Ever since, Jackson has been attached to her cowboy hat. He wears it all around the house, even to the table. Isn't he cute?

I have to share this video of our dinnertime. We couldn't have two different kiddos when it comes to food. Jackson the carnivore. Grace the herbivore.
In case you are wondering what in the world they're eating, it's fajitas. Jackson devours the meat while Grace begs to have the peppers and onions! It's a recipe I will soon be sharing since it's one of our favorite once-a-month cooking recipes (the ones you make in a large batch and freeze for quick meals later).


Let it Snow!

We were blessed with a major dose of snow today. It was that pretty, stick to the trees type of snow. Call me crazy, but I love snow. I was so excited that we finally got a nice good snow that we could go play in. Jackson didn't really get a chance to play in the snow last year and I was curious what his reaction would be this year.
To say it was a hit would be an understatement. Daddy would make snowballs and Jackson would throw them. Then Jackson would say "I nee ball" until daddy or mommy made him another. Repeat 100 times (at which point I had to leave for choir practice).
Grace had a lot of fun as well. She was so excited to get ski gloves this year that will keep her hands dry! Mom, after I took this picture I put her hood on to cover those ears :)

After I left they made a snow man. When I got home Grace told me they made a snow kitty. Daddy said he didn't realize this when he made it and her telling me was the first he'd heard of it referred to as a kitty. Apparently there isn't much of a difference between snow men and snow kitties.
