Hoppy Happy Happenings

The Sock Fashion Expert Wishing You A Hoppy Easter (in her own unique way)! Kiree, The Neighbor Girl, bringing me her famous home grown thyme! She picked it for me and now she's hanging it up for me. Am I spoiled or what?! Would you believe it is still growing in this weather?!

The Kids Art Project Yesterday.

Moonbeam likes my yogurt!

See here's Proof!

A Bucking Bronco Brother!

Today, as I washed mountains of dishes, I listened while Art Dog, seated in the kitchen, read us "The Pied Piper of Hamlin". It was Super Catman's Dishes Day, but with all the cooking going on today, I knew he'd never get them all done. The Sock Fashion Expert was standing on the kitchen counter washing walls and counters (her chore for the day) and making chocolate chip cookies. Super Catman was drying and putting away dishes. Moonbeam, from the confines of her "baby jail" (play pen) was attempting to con people into letting her out (with as much finesse as a 20 month old can muster). Yes, my kitchen was brimming with activity. I smiled to myself, liking how the multitask kitchen work and home school literary endeavor was panning out (no pun intended). Art Dog also baked an awesome angel food cake!

Here are some happy things that have happened recently :

- Kiree, The Neighbor Girl, came over yesterday and helped me process 2 1/2 boxes of hail damaged apples. We ran them through the juicer (mmmmm.....). We also made a big dinner and apple crisp together. Kiree is a great helping hand in the kitchen!

- Kiree brought me some yogurt starter yesterday too. Yes, I tried my hand at yogurt for the 3rd time! Would you believe it?! After 13+ cups of failed yogurt attempts, we finally achieved success! As you can see from the photos, Moonbeam approves :-)

- I have a really really happy secret that I am sworn to secrecy about. I can't hardly wait to blog about it!!

- Happy Birthday to My Wonderful Husband! You light up my life :-)

- On Monday, when we went to town, I found all kinds of cute Easter Baskets and Buddies at the thrift store for 25 cents each! The Sock Fashion Expert cleaned them up for me and already stuffed them!

- I'm excited about lots of fun days planned just around the corner!! Mist started cooking for the local lodge, so we'll be obligated (he he he) to eat out more often. Our "Extreme Chicks Hike" is on Saturday. We have a full Easter Itinerary too. Well, I'm off on a run!! Have some Happy Hoppy Happenings this Resurrection week yourself!!

I love reading about your life, so different and yet still somewhat like my own...if that makes any sense. I'm looking forward to hearing your secret :-) Moonbeam's smile can melt any heart.
Have a glorious Easter.
