Charles wanted to learn how to use the nail gun, so Scott let him and Beau have a go at it one Saturday afternoon.
By our date description can you tell that we love food? Me especially I think. I love the message on this tank top below; very fitting:
Annabelle and Jane had thier piano Christmas recital at an assisted living center. Jane, unfortunately, was still sick so she wasn't able to go.
A week after the treadmill arrived I decided to try to put the treadmill together on my own as Scott was busy with a million other things in the basement. I had to borrow him a couple of times for a moment to help me with something, but other than that I did it on my own and it works great!
Charles has a science fair project that will be due here in a couple of weeks and he's been busy with his rubberband experiment.
Sunday December 10th was my dad's birthday and he would have turned 91.
And making and eating his enchiladas and guacamole recipe, along with some black beans, corn and quinoa. Happy birthday dad!! We love you and miss you!
Scott has had a horrible time with these french doors, twice! He got them in once, took him hours, and then the carpet guys took them out when they installed. Then this week he spent a couple of nights working on them again and finally got them in (I took this picture while he was still getting it right, but the gap in between the doors is much smaller and even now :))
This is the third year in a row we've made gingerbread houses with our dear friends the Ludwigs. We sure love this family and this has become a fun tradition for us.
jam almond cookies which I love and are honey and maple syrup sweetened and which use wheat and almond flour. A friend from my last ward/neighborhood started this cooking group and there's usually 5-8 people that show up each time.
For most of our teacher gifts we gave Bath and Body Works soap, but Charles really wanted to bring his teachers their favorite treats (he has two at his school), and a friend of his had done something similar to this Christmas tree you see below, and he really wanted to try to duplicate that. He did this all on his own (I just did the star and suggested we use a ice cream cone on the top) and I think it turned out great!
