The kids have been off all week so we have been keeping the kids busy with activities so that they aren't misbehaving. We started a 1000 piece puzzle. The only one helping me put it together at this point is GG. She is really good at puzzles though this one is a bit hard. We get about 50 pieces put in a day during the two little ones naps. On Monday the kids went to Trader Joe's with me and they were so absolutely well behaved. It was so much better than the last time I took all four grocery shopping. They each came away from the store with a balloon, stickers and a fruit chew. They found Gorilla Joe which is why they got the fruit chew! Tuesday they each had a friend over. Yay there were a lot of kids in our house but they had a great time. Today they have been helping with making food. GG helped make the pie crust for the apple pie. Red and Peanut helped with making two different kinds of bread. The banana bread is for tomorrow and the other is for me. GG is going to peel potatoes for me tonight and Monkey is going to help with the apple pie filling. Red is going to help make the fruit salad after his nap. I love making everything from scratch it taste so much better is SO much healthier for us! Our menu for tomorrow is Turkey with garlic and rosemary, fruit salad, stir fried zucchini, red mashed potatoes, apple pie, and cheese cake. We are going to be eating good. This is the first time I have made EVERYTHING for the feast. Well the puzzle is calling my name...oh yeah I have taken a picture of it each day when we are finished so hopefully I can post them when I am done.
