Sam has something to say...

Snow Days and Spring Time

It gets so confusing in March going from 60 degree days to 6" snow blizzards. But in the end it makes for interesting entertaining days.....

Mom and Sam spent this snowy Sunday in the house all day and came up with lots of fun things to do...
Dad is excited for Spring Car Race Season.....getting the trailer ready
St Patrick's Day outfit seemed appropriate.....Thanks to the gang from Florida for the poncho, I'm pretty sure it was Uncle Carl, Aunt Kathleen, and the girls that gave Sam this
Bit-o-Irish Luck!!!

Fun times

Look I'm a Cocoon...
Sam went to the Butterfly Museum with Gramsi and Grandma!!!


Sam doesn't need to get this messy any more because she is successfully using a spoon!!! We even practice both hands:)

Sam LOVES the guitar at Ms. Sonya's music class. Daddy loved the class so much that he wants to go on his own.

They learn such high technology at such a young age.

Riding Nitro with Mommy....we even chased a cow!!! She enjoyed riding so much that we are going to get her a helmet so she can stay on longer.

Menu website links

As usual I have managed to put together something at the last minute, but thank goodness because it makes life so much easier!!!! Check out other menu plans at Menu Monday.

By the way.....soaking, dehydrating, and roasting (some) nuts was awesome last week. It made lots of available snacks for everyone. Freshly roasted is the way to go!!!! If you are interested in knowing more about soaking check out sites such as Cheeseslave and GNOWFGLINS just to get you started.

I got my Kefir cultures the other day and that will be my next project on a semi-slow week!!!
