Lots of stuff

Last weekend we had a camp auction at our church building. Supporters of camp come to a nice dinner at which they bring items or services to auction off as well as funds to buy things. Our girls made scarves, cookies, a cozy basket, and offered babysitting hours. In the midst of this, we had four little ones staying with us for the weekend while their parents were gone. Here is a picture of them watching a Veggie Tales movie - an attempt to wind down before bed. Also, a picture of the turkey cookies Grandma Carol, DJ and helpers made for the auction.

Another day this week Tana and DJ were busy in the kitchen. Tana had a science experiment with acids and bases. The glasses with all the pretty colors were the end result of the experiment and I thought it looked neat. Meanwhile, DJ was making "soup" for us at the kitchen table. Notice the variety of meat!

In October, I met my cousin Carrie, her kids, and Aunt Chris at the Minnesota Zoo. This was Levi's first zoo trip, but he hadn't yet really noticed animals. DJ, on the other hand, had a great time!

We were walking to the park one day and I had the boys plop down in front of this tree for a quick picture. The sun was a little bright!

I threw this picture of my hydrangea plant in...just because. I love this flower and was so happy to have my plant bloom this summer.
