Backyard Fun

My mom got the kids a fun kicking croquet game.  The kids have had a ball with it!

It can even be used as a bowling game!  :)

Thanks Mom for such a fun present!

Joey was trying so hard to imitate Abby.  Trying....


Ta-da!  Finally got the pose down.  

Gorgeous artichoke flower!

Everything has doubled size since this picture...but we've got a fun pumpkin and watermelon, rosemary, tons of parseley, some cilantro and lots of delicious tomatoes.  In fact, I don't know how to contain our tomatoe plants... they get SO huge they start tipping over.  I think I might need to build my own frames next time.  Well, try to anyway! :)

Abbies FHE Illustrated

Abby asks us our FHE assignments quite regularly.  She delights in having an assignment and gets excited to see what we will do for our assignment!  This Sunday as we were prepping for our Family Home Evening assignments the next night, we asked Abby if she would draw pictures of our assignments. She went to town!  Can you tell who had which assignments?   
My name got blotted out a little at the top...
but if you can't guess....
Mom-  Treat (brownies to be specific-- see my pan of brownies?)
Abby- Song (She is playing the piano if you can't tell)
Daddy-Scripture (see his very LARGE scriptures there?)
Joey- Activity (I can't remember what he's "doing"- i'll have to ask again)

But isn't that awesome!?  We got a great kick out of it and found it a treasure!  We need to do it more often!
