Tara's Been Practicing the Saxophone. . .

And she's not bad either!!  She really likes her Music/Band teacher.  Madeline likes him as well.  Tara told me today on the way home from school that she really likes the way he teaches.  I hope he stays at our school.  It seems we get a new music teacher every year.  Last night, I taped this.

Check out her progress!

That last note gives me a warm chuckle from the heart.  Truly, I think she's doing pretty darned good!  You can go HERE to see her first attempt when she was playing to her hens.

Good job Tara.  Keep practicing and you'll get better and better.  I'm so proud of you baby.

My Mom. . .

. . .is always looking out for me.  Recently, she was in Good Will and saw this:

A Toastmaster Bread Machine.  She called me and asked if I was interested in it.  Of course I said YES!  So she picked it up for me.  I picked it up from her on Saturday, and on Sunday early morning (Tara and I were up at 5:45 due to the time change!), we made our first loaf.  It was so much easier than doing it the old fashioned way!!  I can't believe how easy it was.  I looked through the recipes and decided that my first choice would be "Egg Bread".  What better way to use some beautiful eggs from my girl Dixie.

And here was the wonderful result:

Now Madeline is my bread girl.  The moment the bread machine dinged with it's "I'm finished signal", out the bread came.

Madeline:  "Can I have the first slice?"  Me:  "Well, they're kind of large so we can split one."  Madeline: "Then can I  be the first one to take a bite?"  Me: "Of course you can.  I want to take pictures of you doing it!"

So here's how it went:

Egg Bread from the new bread machine is good!  
Using eggs from our own chicken is gooder!  
The price of the bread machine at only $4.99 is GOODEST!

Thanks Mom!  I ℒ☮Ṽℰ my new bread machine!!

It's All About Color Coordination. . .

. . .or lack there of.  Tonight is Mix Matched Night at AWANA.  Do you think they sufficiently clash?

While I was outside taking pictures, a UPS truck started to lumber up our driveway.  Tara and Madeline screamed and ran into the woods so he wouldn't see how hideous they looked.  Silly girls!!

Although. . .it does take me back to a time this past summer when I wanted to scream and run into the woods.  You can read about that HERE.
