"Project, Mommy......I want to do a project now!"

We had a pretty good weekend here in Pullman......except the Coug loss, maybe if our defense actually showed up to the game we may have a fighting chance......So now it is Sunday night and I am sitting here in bed listening to Kiara cough up about half her lung.....poor kid....I really hate it when the kids are sick.....I just feel so bad for them......although I have to admit my kids are troopers and like to say they aren't sick.......they will even argue about it while blowing their noses......"I am NOT Sick"......my response is always "Uh-huh sure your not!"......On the weekend....

Saturday morning Nana Anna, the girls and I were up early.....well early for the girls....7.15am.....and off the Farmers Market we went......we were hoping to get some Elderberry Jelly from the Jelly lady.....but a deer ate one of her bushes and so no jelly this week.....Sorry Daddy (Its the only, and I mean the only jelly Shawn will eat).....the girls were bummed that there was no "Daddy Jelly".....but they did have fun tasting some apples and picking out vegetables......so fun to bring them......I can not say how much I love shopping at the market.....Sure hope there are some good ones in San Antonio.....We then headed to Wal-Mart for some art supplies for the girls.....blunt scissors, glue sticks, some plaster/clay, and some new crayons......the girls were thrilled and could not wait to do a project.....they freaking love projects now.....thats all they talk about.....Mikiah wakes up and the first think out of her mouth is "I want to a project.....right now mommy!".....so cute......and once they get started it is like pulling teeth to get them to be done with it......this weekend the girls focused on color a piece of paper completely, cutting with blunt scissors, and pasting with a glue stick.....in the end we ended up with a pretty cool paper chain.....Nana's idea and what a good one it was......Mikiah was so excited that we hung it in their room.....

The rest of the weekend we laid pretty low.....had Pat and Karey over for the Coug Game on Sat.....they are always so much fun to hang out with.....lots of good food.....Lentil Nachos and an Awesome Chocolate Cake.....I am hoping to get some new recipes up on The Breezy Cook soon.....Watched the Seahawks game today......So glad they pulled ahead to get a win......I just love Fall and Football......I do miss watching the games with my sweetie.....Today the girls helped Grandpa pick some tomatoes and corn....they even helped him shuck it.....such good little helpers......So to end the weekend here are some pics......some of the girls doing projects and some other random ones from the weekend......
