Week 46 – November 12 – 18, 2012

(Completed on 1/14/13)

I couldn’t find Henry in the house and the last time I heard him he was upstairs.  I expected to find him in my night stand playing with my reading light, or eating my vitamin C drops, playing in the boys’ room with the things he isn’t suppose to touch.  Instead I caught him reading on my bed.  He got some really big hugs and kisses from me after I was sneaky about taking this photo.

I made two batches of soap last week, in order to have them ready for my Christmas gifts this year.  I used two different boxes and learned that the newest box seemed to work the best (an old drawer).  The soap on the left is my favorite soap.  It is similar to “Earth Child” a kind that I have seen on the internet.  The essential oils are Patchouli, Orange and Lemon and I add oatmeal for exfoliation.  The soap on the right has the essential oils Lavender and Lemon grass.  Everyone seems to love this kind!

Nola Mae enjoyed feeding herself some steamed broccoli.

We got this adorable hat from my friend, Jan.  The little blue ribbon on the hat brings out her blue eyes.

Henry’s turn to bring snack to preschool was coming up.  He of course wanted to help.  Here he was telling me he was ready before I was ready.   He got out the measuring spoons and the flour.Henry ready for baking We made a triple batch of banana bread and muffins.  I shared some loaves and put some in the freezer. banana bread & muffins

Jack took photos of each of us and put our profile shot in one photo.    I love it!  And soon this photo will be on our wall.

Jack took the two big boys home to his mom’s for deer hunting.  I love this smile!

While they were gone hunting and every hunter I know on Facebook was posting dead deer photos I decided I needed to take a picture of my dead animals.  I butchered six aggressive, horny, and too much feed eating roosters.

Since the majority of Wisconsinites were dressed in blaze orange this weekend I decided to put Nola Mae in one of my favorite outfits.

  1. “While they were gone hunting and everyone hunter I know on Facebook was posting dead deer photos I decided I needed to take a picture of my dead animals. I butchered six aggressive, horny, and too much feed eating roosters.” Just got Diet Coke up my nose reading that. Whatever happened to the no dead animal policy? Has it turned into a only dead chicken policy? And good for you! I have four too much feeding eating roosters but without the other issues I’ve been unable to come up with enough motivation to get rid of them.

    • Jessie,
      I guess chickens aren’t included in my no dead animal policy. We ate one of those roosters this week and he was so yummy! I shouldn’t have waited so long.
      We are far from even with drinks up noses…you have gotten me many times with your stories.

I would love to hear what you think, please feel free to leave a comment.
