We have been very busy over here at Upper Pond this week. The TV has been turned off and many new things have been discovered. Paints have been pulled out, rooms cleaned and sounds of "hey mom! Where did I get this cool snap model of an Apache helicopter? (received two Christmases ago) Can I get more of these? were heard.
More baby goodness was knitted for a friend. I think that's it for awhile which is good because I have a few big projects in the queue for fall.
Chocolate crinkles was the cookie of the week. A term coined by Leslie. Again, I'm the only one eating these and boy are they yummy. I got the recipe from this book. I think that this is one of my favorite MS cookbooks. I like how all the cookies are pictured in the beginning so you can actually see what the cookie will hopefully look like when baked.
What we're reading:
Me: Thought this looked good, but now am reading so-so reviews. I guess I will stick with it.
Matt: Ever since Matt was a pre-schooler and saw a poster in the library of Treasure Island he has wanted to read the unabridged version. He would get it out, cart it home, look at the pictures and wish. Well, this is the summer that he has tried to accomplish his goal. He has read the abridged version so that is helping him immensely.
Ryan: Ry is my binge reader. He won't read a fiction book for a long while, then he picks up one and sits and reads the entire book in one day. Magic Tree House is a popular choice. I think he likes it because history is often times infused into the storyline...and Ry is our history buff.
One of my favorite new discoveries. Love this stuff! It makes my skin feel so soft and smooth!
Have a safe and happy weekend!
