Visit with cousins...

We had a lovely visit with cousins at their beautiful woodsy home this afternoon. Kids had fun swimming in their pool with a friendly frog. :)

Play-Doh Princess

I walked in to see L proudly wearing the Play-Doh princess crown her big sister made for her today... We will probably be washing/combing play-doh out of those curls for a while!

Bird News

We were excited to see a Pileated Woodpecker today! He was so busy eating bugs out of an old stump that he let me sneak up and take a bunch of great pictures! :)  J looked him up in the bird book and she said, "it's a boy because of the extra red stripe on his face". :)

Poems K is memorizing this cold week:

How countlessly they congregate
O'er our tumultuous snow,
Which flows in shapes as tall as trees
When wintry winds do blow!--

As if with keenness for our fate,
Our faltering few steps on
To white rest, and a place of rest
Invisible at dawn,--

And yet with neither love nor hate,
Those stars like some snow-white
Minerva's snow-white marble eyes
Without the gift of sight.

Asian themed Birthday Party:)

J decided she wanted an Asian themed birthday party for her 9th birthday this year. We got fancy chopsticks for each guest, had a noodle bar with different veggie and tofu toppings, zen trail mix, learned how to make origami birds, and made candy sushi! We decorated with our special Korean bowls and homemade paper lanterns.. What a fun birthday!
The noodles were a hit!

And silly friends!
A special gift from grandma and grandpa Bee..
Lots of friends!
Candy sushi!
Making origami birds
What a fun day! :)
