Tuesday November 21, 2006

Here’s some pictures of the boys.  Events of the day included lots of puzzles, turkey craft, listening to Bob and Larry, sleeping, eating, wrestling, playing in the toybox, building blocks, riding tricycle, jumping off the couch onto cushions, and reading books.

Elijah is sticking something up his nose.                            Malachi and his turkey.

This is Elijah’s turkey–he pulled off the eye!                          Playing in the toybox.


This is Malachi and his favorite hobby.                                     The boys do a puzzle together.

We are officially MD residents today—license plates and driver’s licenses have been switched.
It is bath time and I don’t have any intelligent thoughts for the day.

  1. Doing a puzzle TOGETHER?!?!?! Impressive… I was picturing a different turkey hand–I’d forgotten about these ones. Is the “head” of the turkey their shoe? Oh, and Trish may have meant their web site–I’m hoping she’ll get into the blog thing, but hasn’t committed yet…

  2. Tara – great pictures!!  Darling turkeys.  I was also picturing differing turkey hands.  I have a recipe for sweet potatoes without marshmallows.  I’m making it tomorrow to take to two different dinners – it’s really pretty good, and you can use canned sweet potatoes, so it’s easy.  Let me know if you want it !!!  Our car was broken into when we were living at Nate’s parents – never in Lancaster city, never in town in Columbia City, but in an upper-middle class neighborhood in Warsaw, a pair of shoes, an empty bag, and our change container – stolen.  Theiveses!!!!

  3. Thanks for the garlic bread recipe.  When you say large loaf, do you mean 2lb?  I’m exciting about trying this, but my machine doesn’t handle 2lb loaves well.  So I mostly do 1 1/2 lb. 

  4. Here you go:
    3 cups cold, mashed sweet potatoes – I use canned
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup milk
    1/4 cup butter or marg. softened
    3 eggs
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. vanilla
    *beat together and pour into greased baking dish
    1/2 cup packed br. sugar
    1/2 cup pecans – chopped
    1/4 cup flour
    2 tblsp. cold butter
    mix sugar, pecans, flour, and cut in butter – sprinkle over potato mixture
    bake @ 325 for 45-50 minutes

  5. Wow…this is such an informative group of comments!  Great pictures, Tara.  I was so impressed by the turkeys and the puzzle work.  Those turkeys are a great idea.  Maybe next year…  I loved the picture of Elijah sticking something up his nose.
