A Catch-Up With the Creightons

Heston had a field trip with the preschool and we got to go to the Ag Farm! It was so much fun!

There were so many hands-on activities for the kiddos and I enjoyed watching Heston soak it all up.

One of the stations was all about horses and Sadie just loved it! Kaitlyn showed her how to rope and ride!

 Heston already thinks he's a natural!
 Then we had a wreath making class at our Monday Night School at church and Di Di (someone Sadie loves to high heaven) sent her home with a wreath and flowers to make on her own. So this is Sadie's idea of a craft day at home with mom.
While Heston plays outside, Sadie plays with her squigglies and pom poms. And I still find these little things hidden all around the house.
And here we find that Heston and Sadie yet again found where the kittens were hiding and continued to bring them in the house and torture them with their love.
On my birthday I came in the house to find that Tom had put both kids to bed and had rallied the kids into helping him cut out this sign. So sweet.
 Since the weather is warming up, Sadie and Heston have loved being outside. When I fill up their little pool they can't wait to pour mud into it and pretend to be "piggies". The kids had a mud fight as we can see by Sadie's battle wounds.
While Sadie fills up the pool, Heston makes a mud puddle in his "house" and grabs all the trucks and tractors he can to help him dig up his treasure.

Until next time!

The Start of a New Year

I'm going to try (keyword- try) to post more of my life here on the farm throughout the year but no promises!

Mostly these days it's just catch up with dishes and meals and laundry and vacuuming, nothing too exciting, but I've been trying to snap more pictures of the kids in their kodak moments.

The other night I passed out the toothbrushes to the kids and said "time to brush your teefies!" So this is how I found Sadie: reading a book on the fireplace, and Heston: standing on the sink actually brushing his teeth. I thought it was too quiet in the house.....

Then the kids helped me make the Pioneer Woman's mocha brownies and they were so good! Heston got to lick the beater for the first time in his life and Sadie was a little hesitant but she caught on fast.

Sadie always wants the stool to see what I'm doing up on the counter and it's a love/hate relationship. If I put her too close to the sink she'll turn the water on a make a mess, but if I put her close to the microwave I'll find spoons, forks, and the salt and pepper shakers hidden inside of it. 
Sadie's favorite thing is emptying the salt and pepper shakers. So I finally relented and let her make a mess on the floor with all the salt and bowls and funnels she wanted. It lasted about ten minutes and then she was bored, go figure!

Until next time,
