So anyway, she loves school, she's made some girlfriends and she LOVES her teacher, Mrs Peterson. Mrs. Peterson;s husband owns the local grocery store called, "Petersons" which Jane thinks is super neat, and she always wants to go drop by, just in case her teacher might happen to be there :).
We have been cooking up some fun, yummy foods recently. I think the Fall gets me in the mood for cooking, even though it's still been in the 80s here. Last Sunday morning, conference morning, we made pancakes and eggs benedict with a Hollandaise sauce(and Scott bought sausage and hashbrowns to have on the side). I've decided I love the eggs benedict, especially when it's served over a whole wheat english muffin and topped with avocado, tomato and hollandaise.
I am SO excited about this next food item because I discovered a whole foods way of making caramel apples! All you do is bring heavy cream, honey and a pinch of salt to a boil and get it to the soft ball stage of candy making, then add a little vanilla and then dip your apples. That's it! No sugar, no corn syrup, no caramel colors, just pure goodness! And they were amazingly yummy! So I want to try and put this caramel recipe in with my favorite carmelitos treat that we like to make for special occasions.
Here is Nora, trying to walk on her heels as she just had her toe nails and finger nails painted and she was worried about messing them up. Within an hour she had scraped all the nail polish off her finger nails, so I think we'll just still with toes next time.
This is the season of recitals and Annabelle and Charles had a Fall recital last week where they each performed a couple of duets and did great!
I am so proud of our kiddos for their hard work and dedication (even if they sometimes do it grudgingly). It definitely pays off!
Here's Annabelle playing Sea Breezes.
I took a picture of this wiring book just before I returned it to the library. Scott checked it out a couple of months ago and has been renewing it since. He has learned to wire lights in the ceiling, do smoke alarms and outlets all from this book. He amazes me! We're still not completely done with our rooms downstairs but we're getting really close and we do have all working and functioning lights, outlets and smoke detectors :).
