The Chef

Teague has always been my baker but now he’s trying out entrees. Granny and Pop gave him a subscription to Raddish Kids for Christmas and he has made two of the recipes so far – drop biscuits and an omelet. I was really impressed with how easy the recipes were for Teague to follow. I was present but I don’t think he needed me at all. The recipe breaks everything down into ingredients, tools, and instructions. There are pictures with each item/step and nothing complicated. I’ll admit I was a little surprised at how tasty they both were. I would happily take the drop biscuits with every meal.

Driving

Teague loves anything with wheels (or treads). Wade offered to let him help snowblow and Teague was so excited. They made a path through our backyard for Alex and Jadon and then kept going till Teague got tired (which never happens).

Brrr..

Rarely do I think it is too cold to play in the snow. Today was definitely one of those days. We have older windows in our house and often get condensation on them, but this is the first time we’ve had ice crystals. The kids really wanted to go outside to play so I got them all dressed and went outside to take a few pictures. Kaitlyn wanted to come in immediately. Alex wasn’t too far behind – check out his cheeks! I had to drag Teague in eventually, but he would sit outside and eat snow all day long. We spent the rest of the day watching movies, reading books, and doing a little baking.

Snow!

We got hit by a winter storm bomb. I have never heard this term before so I looked it up – bombogenesis” criterion – an ominous-sounding term frequently used in the winter to describe powerful low-pressure systems that intensify rapidly. To be classified as a weather bomb, or having undergone bombogenesis or “bombing out,” the central pressure of a low-pressure system must drop at least 24 millibars within 24 hours.

For us that meant 10-12 inches in about 24 hours. Everyone was home from work and school and it was gorgeous to look out my window. The wind was a little scary sometimes but we never lost power.

Crafty Relatives

We have numerous crafty people in the family and that usually means fun and interesting Christmas presents. Not only did the kids get marshmallow guns from Uncle John and Aunt Louise, but they also got cool wooden cups. We used them for snack today and the kids loved it.

Long Travel Day

Our 9 hour drive took us almost 14- due to many, many reasons. The kids were awesome and read, played iPad, and slept – sometimes at the same time. My favorite was when the big boys actually took a nap together.

After our first day driving last week, we realized letting the kids have unlimited iPad time all day might not be a good thing. When we stopped for the night, Teague had such a sore neck that he was crying in pain. Now we have mandatory breaks during the day.
