Culinary Cutie



 One of the best things about having older children is their abilities to be independent. Madisyn has turned into quite the little baker. She's a kitchen whiz. You never know what she's going to make next!

Young Living Essential Oils

Back in the spring, I was invited to an essential oils class. I had been looking for a class to attend for quite some time. After doing some research, I determined that I felt most comfortable with Young Living essential oils.



Young Living's Seed to Seal method gave me great confidence in their company. After using essential oils over the summer, I was very impressed with my success. I am now a distributor for Young Living. I would love to have you join me on my journey to improve my health with more natural products.


Hickory Fest Fun




Today the girls and I visited Hickory Fest. Some good friends organized the festival and we wanted to check it out.



We started off visiting the vendors and played a game at the 4-H booth. Liberty and Mary Claire each won a pair of disguise glasses. 



After we dropped off some food for the local food pantry, we found the mini tractor pull was about to start. We had never watched a tractor pull, so it seemed like something to check out. 




While we waited for the excitement, was played around with the glasses a little more. 



When the tractor pull got to the non-stock engine heats, things got exciting. 




I hate the boys missed this!

Cupid's Cuties


This year, I decided to host a little Valentine's Day party with some of our friends. Since Valentine's Day was on a Friday we got to enjoy our party on the actual day. We invited the Tims and Mashburns over for a homeschool Valentine's Day  party.


Miss Jess brought an extra visitor so we had 20 students total. The kids decorated boxes (the Mashburn kiddos get bonus points for the best boxes) and selected valentines. I talked to my kids and all the boys wanted to give out food related valentines. LOL


I was a bit of a lazy mom and didn't fill out the "to" portion of the cards. Since I have more non-readers that readers, I thought that would make things simpler for them. It proved to be a real time saver, and I'll continue to be lazy in the future.


The younger kids didn't really grasp the concept of giving out cards. In fact, a few tears were shed at the thought of giving away their sack of goodies. However, when the delivery of cards was complete there were lots of happy campers! I heard several discussions of having a party next year and schemers trying to develop a plan to pass out cards for lots of holidays. LOL


Candyce made handmade valentines that were super cute. Even though she gave my 8 children whistles, we're still friends. Haha! This little girl couldn't quite figure out what she was doing wrong. Unfortunately for me, her older siblings helped her out.
