Fire at will

I don't know why that felt like a suitable title - but here's a quick update in whatever order the photos uploaded.

We had an unscheduled Sunday on the weekend - no special dinners, no feeding the missionaries, no youth meetings. Carmen pulled out The Game of Life and we saw in through to the painful end, just to say we did it (and never have to do it again). Chloe was losing badly, so she put on Ken's cap and hoodie and called herself a hobo.

Steven got glasses. For free! From clearlycontacts.ca with a coupon code from Uncle Mark. (Thank-you!) The contact lens thing wasn't working out so well on school mornings.

Steven has his last regular season game today. The defence has only allowed 22 points all season! It's interesting how Steven playing defence has changed the way I watch an NFL game. Apparently I used to watch football from an offensive perspective.

We did an apple pie project with my parents and Marie this month - I had the brilliant idea of bringing latex gloves from work so that my fingernails weren't black by the end of the day from handling juicy apples.

Carmen saw this on Pinterest. My goal is to actually do the things we see on Pinterest, to move beyond the pinning. Good thing we have more Fridays off school than usual this year - we can using them for Pinterest Projects!

What exactly is Carmen doing from Pinterest?

It's the Eiffel Tower from wafer cookies of course!

I hear it's your birthday Barb?! Your sister wrote you a beautiful post! Take care and Happy Birthday!

Oh, I could totally tell that it was the Eiffel Tower. Very creative!

I love the hobo Life player. Way to take you card hand and run with it!
