 This is where Daisy spends her homeschool days.  I swear she gets stepped on 12 times a day, and yet here she lays.  I guess she's not learnin' too much stuff.
 I'm learnin' how to juggle stuff as we are typically faced with one boy finishing before the other on a daily basis. 
You just sit there and look pretty Yenner.  Good job!

Blogger has been so kind as to let me make my pictures big, I feel like posting everyday.  I'll try not to be all up in your grill like that though.  Here are some things that my almost 10 (how can I have a 10 year old when I'm only 22?) has been up to.  

 Designs By Jaydie will be coming to an etsy shop near you soon.  Both of these get-ups were lovingly made by our Jaydie.  He has a gift!! 

This is how our Jaydie loaded the dishwasher.  Pretty orderly even for my freakish standards.  I only made a couple minor adjustments so I could sleep that night.  Jaydie is such a blessin'!!  We are soooo thankful for him.

This was our homeschool lesson on how caged animals sometimes behave(okay, not really).  The boys were completely overcome with laughter during this photo shoot.  Yenner has a special knack for it, I think.  Caged animals indeed.

                                   Pepperoni Pizza Puffs adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray and Cassie Craves
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt (my addition, optional)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes (my addition, optional)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup cubed pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes (if using) ; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
2. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
NOTE: All my batter did not fit into the 24-mini muffin pan. So I made a full size muffin with the leftover batter. Some pans are larger than others so you may not have have an issue.

This is the easiest most crowd pleasing thing I've made in awhile.  Who wouldn't like pizza bites, I mean really??  You could shake things up and add other pizza toppings you like.  Get on it!!  It came from this gal.

The boys have played with this toy more than any other and for the longest time. Who knew?
These probably don't look so appetizing but they were; and healthy too!! A big thanks to Pinterest for giving me more ideas than I could ever begin to try and thanks to my family for being my guinea pigs.
Ummm, yes please!!!
This is all part of training them up in the way they should go. See those color groups? I've never been so proud.
One of the many fun things the cousins taught us...arm farts. Such a blessin'!! I suppose it was in my boys' nature anyway and it would have come out eventually. Sorry to all the innocent bystanders that have had to endure hearing this.
