Me and Brenna have been playing with our dollhouse a lot lately. We decided to make a fabric store. So we took some of Mom's scraps of fabric and cut it in to tiny pices. Then we wrapped them up and taped them. We used our bookcase to put the fabric store in. On the walls Brenna hung some curtains. Then we set up the measuring table.
Later we put the playmobile people in it and set it up. We had so much fun!

Having Breakfast for Dinner

Last night for Dinner we had breakfast. Grandma got me and Brenna 2 American girl cookbooks Kit's and Felicity's. Dad said he wanted a colonial breakfast for dinner so we made that for dinner. I for one don't like breakfast and especially for dinner ; but amazingly it was good! I also helped Mom cook the meal.The first thing we made was apple butter. We had to put apple cider in a pot and boil it. Then, chop the apples, put it in the pot, wait a bit, then put the spices in it, and wait some more.

We also had Johnny cakes.

Here is the ham with gravy. We first fried the ham, and made the gravy.

This is the gravy. We also had Dressed eggs.

We also made breakfast puffs.

Here is the finished products. You could either put the Apple Butter on the Johnny cakes and Breakfast puffs, or leave it off. Everything was good, except for the eggs. I can't wait to have it again.

More french and Silas

Me, Joshua and Brenna prayed for a baby brother. When we heard Mom was going to have a baby we were so excited. When we have a baby we don't know if its going to be a girl or a boy its a surprise. When, Silas was born we were so glad it was a boy. We thought he was the cutest baby in the world. Now, looking back we think he is even cuter. Silas likes to vaccum it has become his chore, we don't make him vaccum he just likes to.
Silas likes to draw and color. He also, likes to play the piano.

Dad and Mom wanted to get a library card so they can get french books. They also wanted to let us kids pick out some children french books. We then read and translated the books into English, the next day we read the book to Silas. On, the third day we tell the story to everyone and start the process all over again. Brenna picked out a book about a child getting ready for bed.

Joshua picked a book about a girl and her turtle.

I picked a book about a squirrel and its journey during the day.

We had fun and today we picked out some more books. Please pray that we learn french quickly.
