MRI Time

Joey is scheduled for an MRI on Wednesday and I wanted to ask for prayer -- for stable or shrinkage. It is always a little stressful as we wait. 

Pictures were taken a few weeks ago when the kids were all outside - early evening.

Cooking Class

Today was cooking class day. I actually wasn't going to do it, as I just didn't feel like it, and I figured the kids wouldn't mind that much. But, that didn't happen because Tess will never let me forget anything nor will she let anything go.  She will remind me over and over until I just give in and do it. She is like that about almost everything we do. I can't slack at all with her around. So, we did our class and I'm glad we did. We made something called Bean Chili Macaroni and it turned out pretty good. It was a little too spicy for most of the kids -- probably because Piper spilled some of the chili powder so when we added more we were not sure how much to add and we added too much. But, it didn't stop the kids from having two servings each. 

They really enjoy this cooking class and most of the time I do, too. I think Tess enjoys it the most and in her words -- "I'm going to be a cooker when I grow up."

Sewing Class

Bethany and Tess had their third sewing class today. This time they made Christmas placemats and they turned out really nice. They were so proud of them. They can't decide if they actually want to use them as placemats and accidentally get food on them. It will definitely make them super careful when they eat.
