For those that don’t mind a slight deviation from really good food, here’s my top three snapshots of the last week or so giving a little glimpse into real life around these parts:
After a long weekend of cleaning out the barn, stacking the rest of the firewood, making more marshmallow eggs, watching the snow melt, and other various energetic activities, we tucked in for a family movie night. On the docket: Nanny McPhee. It was a new one to us even though it’s been around a while. The kids (well, besides Cam, who basically ran around like a wild 2-year old) were enthralled and very, very worried about a) if this movie was real (we need to get out more) and b) Nanny McPhee’s very odd front tooth.
I just…I just love this picture. These two are best buds. They pal around all day long together. And that dress? Can you even? My mom, after getting back from a trip to Switzerland, just whipped this up for Cam after seeing all the little cute dresses there. And if you are wondering, no, I did not inherit any of that sewing talent.
Speaking of the snow melting, this is what we are left with. And this is how the boys spent about 7/8ths of their day. Lest you think the muddy water stayed just on their muck boots, think again. Behold the endless-laundry-joys of four boys who love mud and a mom who loves boys finally being able to run out their energy in the wild instead of in the kitchen.
