This morning, the kids were all up bright and early for some present opening. They each received several gifts from mom and dad and family members. The girls loved their new dolls...
Here's little 2 yo with her new baby buggy!

Hard to believe that last year, he was born a little peanut....Okay, a big peanut-almost a 9 pound peanut! But here he is, content as can be. Scroll down and you can see how he's grown over the year, with month by month pictures!

A little while later, a slight change. Notice brother's arm?
I thought it was so sweet-like he was comforting her. Definitely a cute moment. And it definitely overshadows the incident later on in the evening when he pushed her because "she was in my way." Ahhhh...siblings.
At this point, I think we only have 2 that haven't gotten sick yet, so likely this illness will be moving on soon. As long as Mom and Dad don't get it, I think we're okay.

After doing some fun projects like this, I think I need to get back to a set aside time each day to work on some crafty stuff. It seems to have fallen by the wayside, in order to deal with the more urgent. It is so much fun, but busy life just seems to crowd it out! Maybe our Christmas school break will be a good time to do some of these things.

One day they made a mural of an African grassland. Their job was to color it and cut out and paste on pictures of animals that would live there. I got a kick out of this one-if you look closely, you can see a few animals that just DON'T belong! A polar bear on the left, a chicken in the middle----hmmmm...I just don't think they should have been in THIS picture, do you? Apparently, we need to review this part of the unit.
Next week we will be trying our hand at making some Kenyan food. Hopefully we do not have any major accidents as we did with the German cooking. I don't think we will-something tells me their food will be fairly simple.

Here is their cake I made for them. Don't know why it will only upload the picture sideways, but oh well, you get the idea. Dog themed, remember?
Of course, there were the presents. What a blessing their friends were to them today-they are so very generous and caring!
Finally, the big surprise at the end. Mom of one of the guests brought over their real, live dog! This is a very big deal for us since we don't own a dog. My kids just loved it-especially my 2 yo! She's an animal lover!
