I haven't made any resolutions or goals for the new year. I think I'm still trying to catch up on all of the previous ones such as spending time with family and friends, being more organized, reading the Bible more, exercising, etc. I am already working on clearing out some of the clutter in our house. After 9 years in one house we have accumulated too much stuff!
My apologies for the lack of posts lately. Our computer's memory is nearly full so I haven"t dared to download any pictures from the last 2 months,
We have spent a lot of time in November and December doing two things.
1. Mama Bear has been baking pound cakes in jars and selling them. Between the orders and cakes we gave away to family and friends, there was a total of 213. That's a lot of flour, butter, and eggs! We never took a picture of a single jar, oops.
2. Papa Bear and his father have been residing the house which has been an adventure to say the least. I think they would be done by now if they weren't having to repair/fix the inadequate building they have encountered such as absence of boards, insulation, etc. Today Papa Bear discovered that our front door was not set properly. We are more than halfway done with the siding and then have to paint. Our house will be well insulated and I expect to see fewer insects getting inside too! Papa Bear is doing a great job and I will post pictures eventually.
3. Goldilocks decided on her own that she wanted to cut her hair - no more tangles! We are going to donate her hair to Locks of Love. I will show a picture eventually. We were supposed to have her birthday party last week but postponed it when she got a stomach virus. She is going to have a princess tea party at our house and she doesn't know that Sleeping Beauty is going to pay a visit.
4. Curly Bear is talking and singing a lot. We can now (finally) understand what she is saying a lot of the time. She is enthusiastic about potty training, but it has not clicked yet. She sits on the potty, reads a book, looks in the potty, says "no pee-pee, no poo-poo, no wa-de-pop (lollipop). oh well." She is only 2 1/2 yrs old, and I'm sure one day the light bulb will turn on and she will do well.
