Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!

It has been a good day around here I hope you have had a good one too!

The girls both brought home a questionnaire about me from school and I thought I would share their perception of me!

According to Sophie:

I am 20 years old.

I am 11 feet tall and weigh 7 lbs ;0).

Her favorite thing to do with me is play dress up.

I work on the computer before school.

I say "clean up your room" a lot.

My favorite food is onions.

My favorite television show is Dora.

I do not sing in the car and I cannot dance.

I work at school.

She loves me a whole lot.

According to Macklin:

My 3 favorite places to go are Kroger, School and Publix.

The five special people she would invite to celebrate with me are Grannie, Papa, Manda, Jessica and Jana.

If she were in charge of cooking for me for an entire day she would make:
(her spellings)

Cerel and eggs

Pizza and mushrooms

Spigetti and for dessert: Chocholte mousse

(I don't know why she can spell mousse correctly and not chocolate :0) )

The three chores that she would help me with are:

Making my bed

Setting the table

Sweeping the kitchen

Watching Sophie while I rest.

(she couldn't stop at 3, wish this was real life)

And finally, my favorite things to to are scrapbook and teach!

Funny stuff.
I am very blessed to be the Mommy to three of the best kids ever!

They have music........

Elijah and Macklin's piano recital was last night. Elijah has taken
lessons for 4 1/2 years and Macklin just completed her 2nd year.
They both enjoy playing and love Mrs. Christy. This is their last year
with Mrs. Christy because she will be returning to teaching elementary school
full time in the fall. Below are short videos of their pieces.

This past Friday night we decided to stay at home for a family night. While deciding what we would have for dinner it occurred to me that my kids have never fondued (is that a word??) with anything but chocolate. It probably has something to do with the flaming pot of oil that you use to cook your food! I decided that with supervision that they probably could handle it. Fonduing (again, is that a word?) was one of my favorite meals to eat with my family when I was a kid ( can you say 1970's burnt orange fondue pot?) and I wanted to share that with my kids.
They really got a kick out of it and enjoyed cooking their own food. I am happy to report that no one got burned.
Sophie was my most skeptical diner. She did not want to get her food "wet". I explained to her that her food had to get "wet" in order for it to be cooked! I am pretty sure she ate an entire raw zucchini one slice at a time but she did eventually eat some chicken and fried cheese and potatoes.
It was a fun family meal that we plan to do again soon.
Now, if someone will tell me what to do with that nasty pot of oil !!!!!
(Sorry that we didn't think to take a photo until we were almost finished. It was more appetizing at the beginning :0P )
