Christmas Card Rejects!

Many of the pictures are picture spots that Kingston thought would look nice!

Scouting for Picture Spots

Master Chef

Kingston has been creating recipes for a long time. I'm trying to help him use "real" ingredients to make real creations. He decided that he really wanted to make some jello. I informed him that he was going to have to purchase his own ingredients from now on. Chris and I set up some jobs that he can do to earn dimes. He finally earned enough dimes to purchase 2 boxes of jello. He didn't have enough money for the other ingredients so he hinted to Mimi and Pops that he REALLY would like to have some whipping cream and cherries for his recipe. They kindly brought him the needed ingredients when they were here last week. We finally got around to making his recipe. He made grape jello jiggler stars and added whipping cream and a cherry to the middle. He was SO proud of his accomplishments. He's been asking what other jobs he can do for dimes!

Camden's Birthday

Camden knew exactly what to do with his cake at the party! He had some practice the day I made the cake. While I was outside he crawled on the kitchen table and started exploring with his cake! The picture of the cake is pre-destruction.

Cake Making "Party"

We had a big morning decorating cupcakes and cake. The big kids enjoyed decorating their own cupcake. Cal enjoyed eating his. Poor Camden will have to wait until tomorrow to get his hands on one!

Oh, he wants one SO bad!
