Drawing in Progress...

So, I wasn't going for flesh tones just so you know. And, it looks pretty much like sausage fingers but hey, at least I drew something.

The Difference Still Remains...

My right foot is so much less swollen but nevertheless it still doesn't look like my left.

Project Night!

Chaya's class has been studying climates for the past few weeks. This is the culmination of her group's efforts. She sculpted the horse drinking from the water and she is reading her part of the report to me. She wrote about Mustangs. Jonah had a project on display, too, but Jeff took pictures of it. He also took close up photos of Chaya's sculpted horses. I was impressed by her sculptures. Her teacher told me that she went around and helped other students with their sculptures when they were feeling flustered. That's my girl!

Ken and Barbie get a little too comfortable...

Happy Birthday Chaya!

We celebrated Chaya's birthday on Easter but I didn't get a specific birthday type picture of her. Pictured above she is using her
"bunny money" to buy gifts from the makeshift store that Bridget set up. Bridget created the bunny money to hide in some of the eggs for the Easter egg hunt to add to the fun. Bridget's famiy has been celebrating Easter dinner with us for a few years along with the usual relatives... Jeff's parents, my stepfather (occasionally my Mom and sister when they are in town) and Jeff's brother and his wife. Fun, fun!

Chaya requested an ice cream cake this year so rather than buy one like we usually do, I made it myself and it actually turned out! Yum!

My Egg Funked Out

My egg really is this color but Jeff helped me funk out the background.

Easter Eggs...

We dyed Easter eggs on Friday. We broke about five of them in the process... good thing my kids like to eat hard boiled eggs.

Carol's Challah

This project went great right until the end when I misplaced the recipe and what temp and how long to cook it. So, I went in the other room to get the info. off my computer and was sidetracked by the fact that my son had made a hot dog for me for dinner. But, on top of that, at that moment, Eve kicked Jonah making him fall into the tv tray which sent a full glass of ice water careening to the floor and shattering. In the meantime, my challah unhappily burnt! It still tastes pretty good but the top is rather hard. And, I had made these loaves for Easter dinner. Anyway, the other problem was that they were too close together on the tray and thus touched each other... oh well... next time.

Reason Number 3...

He makes dinner!

What Lies Beneath...

I took a bath the night I got the cast off and really, really wanted to take an "after" shot... meaning after all those disgusting layers of skin came off. My foot looks nice and pink now.
