February

This February we got a lot of snow! The Princesses had fun building snowmen and running around in the snow. Pants especially loved the snow. We had a hard time getting her to come inside!

A Boo Boo Princess Christmas Story

A tradition we started last year at our home is The Great Stocking Hunt! It all started because their stockings got to heavy to hang from the banister, so we had to figure out something else to do with them. We decided to hide them and have clues to help the girls find them.
 
It starts where the stockings should be and then the girls travel all over the house following the clues. This year I used leftover wrapping paper for the clues.
 

 
Are they in the fridge?
 
 
Let's check out our clue to see where to go next!

 
So many clues!

 
We found them.

 
Now, it's time to see what is inside!

 
We hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year!

Rockin' Thru History


At our recent Homeschool Group meeting we had the pleasure of meeting and listening to the teacher, musician, songwriter and homeschooling dad: Damien Drago! We were treated to a live performance of his Rockin' Thru History songs.

His current songs are all inspired by The Revolutionary War. The songs start off with Powder Your Wig (just the name makes me giggle) and the last song is Five Fantastic Fabulous Founding Fathers. Each song is fun and educational.
The reason he created each of these special songs was to teach kids about History in a interesting way!
He has a great website called Rockin Thru History. On his website you can listen and purchase his songs. There are lyrics for his songs, resources and even more material you will find very helpful.
At our live performance we were treated to some of his new songs, which he is currently working on. These new songs are inspired by the Civil War. So be on the lookout for even more fun and  make sure you take some time to check Damien Drago out at www.rockinthruhistory.com.

The Bad Carrot

by: Pants
 
Hops-A-Lot and Mr. Bug saw the Bad Carrot. Hops-A-Lot wanted to eat the Bad Carrot and Mr. Bug said, "No, Hops-A-Lot, don't eat the Bad Carrot!". But Mr. Bug was too late. Hops-A-Lot ate the Bad Carrot and when he ate the Bad Carrot something happened. It made him spit out carrots! Everybody liked him because they weren't bad like the Bad Carrot. Everybody cheered for Hops-A-Lot. Hops-A-Lot got first place in the spitting carrots contest and everybody liked his trophy. He put the trophy in his room.
 
The End

Summer Memories!
I didn't get a lot of time to blog this Summer, so I am catching up now! I wanted to share some of the fun we had this summer with you.

The girls had an awesome time at Vacation Bible School at the beginning of the Summer.





They did a lot of swimming.





We went to a baseball game with our friends and Pie Pie got a foul ball!





We finally got to go on a family vacation to the beach.
This is Pants's first visit to the ocean!

















We had a lot of fun relaxing and enjoying our break from school!
We hope you had a fun Summer too!
Smiles,
Nikki!

Our Turkey Hill Experience

It seems as if I have been working on this post forever! I'm not even sure when I started it, but it is getting published today!
Daddy had an unexpected day off, so we decided to visit The Turkey Hill Experience. It was a great trip. I had promised the girls we would go and they were very excited!
When you get there you are invited to make your own ice cream flavors. We did the experience on their computers, but you can also visit their Taste Lab and actually make your own ice cream. Pie Pie made a very yummy flavor.


They even got to design the package for their ice cream.
 

Pants made one too! She had to put her favorite color in her ice cream. Pink! Which is actually a bit purple.





Here are the girls working on the computers to make their very own ice cream.


They are both definitely nuts!


Before you leave don't forget to get your free ice cream!
Pie Pie had Dutch Chocolate, Pants had Party Cake, Daddy had Peanut Butter Cup and I had Maple Walnut.
Yummy!


This was a very delicious Field Trip!
