Back at it

After initializing the blog, we didn't check back for a while. Today when a friend emailed saying she started a blog, we decided it was time to get back at it.

It's been a busy week. Jacob continues his fascination with all things Power Ranger (or nerf dart gun, or Wii, or paper airplanes). Ben grew his first tooth. Jenny bought a new Swiffer WetJet and loves it. Marty hates it - the solution smells weird to him.

This week we have had a focus on food storage. Jenny learned to substitute butter, shortening, etc. with canned white beans. She also learned how to grind dry beans and to substitute the bean grindings for half of bread flour when making bread. I love the smell of bread cooking, but this new concoction could create a few smells I wouldn't be so fond of!!!

Wow, I just realized it's May! Time really does fly when you're having fun. Here are some photos of the boys goofing around. They are growing up fast. Yes, we actually found Jake in the dryer. What a turkey!

More to come...

We're so glad that somebody in our family joined us in the blogging world. Jake's picture in the dryer was so funny! Tell Jake that Andy and Linsey say hey! Give Ben a big hug for us.
