Christmas Cookies

We didn't make very many cookies this year, but the kids really wanted to make cut-out cookies.  So, I finally decided that Mom wasn't going to swoop in and make cookies with them... it wasn't all bad.  :)

 Benjamin excited about cookies!

Putting on the finishing touches (or gobs!).

My loves!





Yep, this about sums up the shoot.  :)
It took us two days, and lots of pictures.

Halloween 2013

Here is a family picture from a party we attended yesterday.  Probably the only group picture we'll get this year.  :)  The kids picked our theme... Angry Birds (phone game, for those of you who don't know!):  Dad - Black Bomb Bird, Meredith - Pink Star Wars Bird, Michael - Big Red Bird, Jonathan - Yellow Bird, Mom - Pig (the "bad guys"), Benjamin - Little Light Blue Bird.

Why We Want to Homeschool...

I just love this article I found about why this family homeschools... I think it's pretty accurate for us as well.

Mini Update

Yay!  Soccer camp is over!  We've survived a couple of crazy weeks and are NOT leaving the house this week.  The kids really enjoyed the camp, but I am exhausted.  :)  Our focus this week is on resting and resetting our schedule.  School is back in session, chores are back on schedule, sleep schedules are being reset... Mommy is happy.
Picasa is updated (except for my phone pictures, which I just remembered - grrr).
