Chai Taste Test

We made some home made instant chai. Then we had a taste test.

We wrote on a piece of paper which one we thought we would like best. Then we tasted one, two, three, four and five.

My favorite one was FIVE because it was the creamiest.  I don’t like number three, it tasted like water.

This chart is who liked what.  Everybody did it except for Momma, because she knew which one was which.

If you want to see how to make it, go to Momma’s recipe blog.

Happy May Day

Today we got flowers!  They were outside on the salt bags.  It’s a mystery who gave them to us.  It says Happy May Day & God Bless You.

I like them.  There were “Heart’s Blood”  (Bleeding Hearts), Tulips, and Daffodils.   My favorite are the Heart’s Blood.

We think it was Auntie Angelique or Uncle Sam.

Thank you for whoever gave us the flowers.

Half Birthday

Today is my half birthday and I am sick!

I am 7 and a half.  Momma says that I am officially 7 and a half because I was born at 6:05!

I got sick because Mark got sick.  I have a fever, a head ache and a cough.  I feel like crying because I feel bad.

Some good things for my half birthday.  I get ice cream and brownie!  It sounds good.  We got to watch the second Acts movie.  I don’t know what my favorite part it.  Momma is reading us Gooney Bird Greene.  She was late for school and she also did some stories about her.  I want to finish the book now.

I hope I feel better tomorrow.

Eye Doctor again

Today I went to the eye doctor.  I don’t need glasses!  Hooray!

The nurse took a picture of my eyes and then made me read the numbers.  I got some hot chocolate.  The eye doctor said the picture of my eyes look good!

Then we went to Grandma and Grandpas  house.

Then we went to the Bookworm.   That is a place where we buy books.  I got a dolly book and a Sea Princess book.

Then we went out to eat.  I ate pizza and a breadstick.  I drank lots of pop!

Then we went home.  We played and then cleaned and now I am finishing my blog.

My best part of the day was going out to eat!  Then the bookstore.

A Thanksgiving Poem

A Thanksgiving Poem

By Andrea (with a itty bitty help from Mark and Audrey)

“Gobble Gobble”, said the turkey.

Help me, I think that I am in a trap!

Men are coming with knives over here.

I don’t know why…Oh no, they are cooking me!

“This turkey is delicious”, said the people.

The beans and smashed potatoes–not for me!,

Turkey, turkey and more turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for cats, my family, my friends, Grandma and Grandpa, Oma and Opa and Uncles and Aunts.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Mark and Daddy

Yesterday, Mark and Daddy fixed my bike!  They had to fix my wheel because it was broken.  It had a little hole in it.

I tried riding it; the first time I fell down–but I caught myself– ’cause the seat was too high.  Daddy and Mark fixed that.

I tried riding it the second time and I didn’t fall down!  I can ride my bike!

Mark did a good job!  Thank you, Mark!

Adrian’s First Time Making Noodles.

Yesterday we made noodles.   Audrey wanted to make some.

The ingredients are a bowl, eggs, oil, water, and flour.  You put the flour in the bowl and then you put the eggs in the bowl.  Then the water in the bowl.  And then the oil.  You mix it good.  Then we let the dough sit for awhile.

We put a little bit of flour on the noodle maker and a little on the counter.  Mark went first, he rolled the noodles.  Then Audrey did the same thing as Mark.  Then Adrian did the same thing.  I took pictures of it because it is his first time spinning the wheel.  Then it was my turn and Momma took pictures of me.

We put the noodles in a pot of boiling water.  They cook fast!  Then we ate them with turkey broth and carrots.  I liked them!  I like the skinny noodles!

Then we logged on to Chore Wars.  I don’t know how Daddy got it on there, it is where the firefox was.  Then we can log on and if you did something, you can say what you did and you get points.  You have these little people that are characters of you.

You have to write in your name and then you make a fake name.  My fake name is Princess Renee.  You make your bed, clean off the table, clean off the floor, put your toys away; and you get points.

We are earning points for going out to eat!  I don’t know how many points we need, I forgot, something like around 30?  It is a lot though!

Making Rice Krispy Treats!

Yesterday night, the boys went to Scouts. We made Rice Crispy Treats.  We ate some little marshmallows. Then Momma said, “I have some big marshmallows.” We said, “yes, please!”

After we ate them, Adrian climbed down and he got into mischief!  Maybe he pulled one of the chairs–he is strong enough to–then Adrian got the scissors.  Or maybe the scissors were at the edge of the counter and he got them.  Then he cut some little squares.  Now he just needs to learn how to make some pictures.

First Momma melted some marshmallows in butter.  Me and Audrey put the Rice Crispy in the dish and then I got to mix it! Then we poured it into the pan with the marshmallows. We ate some and smooched it down into the cake thing a majiggy.  Then we put the chocolate chips on.  We held it and it was finished. We just needed to cook it to melt the chocolate chips.  Then Momma took a knife and buttered the chocolate, like you have bread and you want to put the butter on it.  But it was Rice Crispy Treats and you put chocolate on it.

Momma cut it and then we let it sit a little.  Then we ate it while Momma read to us.

I liked it!

Seven pictures, just like how old I am!
