They're here!

Good morning, it is Sunday.

For the last couple of days we have a had a couple of cute visitors! Amber and Aurora are visiting from Texas...you know, where Sandy the Squirrel is from.

Aurora really likes her cereal. Today the funniest and saddest thing happened. Aurora thought she dropped a cheerio down her dress. She went to clean it out and she couldn't get it out! It was stuck and Aurora went from happy to sad. Amber went to help and we found out it was just Aurora's cheerio shaped belly button! Funny...maybe you just had to be there?


Yesterday Aurora wanted to paint. Rather than painting on paper, I suggested that the girls paint the inside of the Pink Palace. And that is just what happened. Amber was very brave and painted with Lillie and Aurora.

The inside turned out great. And here is a sneak peak from the start of the job. Lillie is painting a TV, Aurora is being a bit more random, and Amber painted some very artistic things.

We also spent some time at the beach. Hansen had fun burying Preston.

Maren, Lillie, Amber and Aurora had fun exploring the beach while Preston was getting burried.


Peaches! Maren purchased a bunch of peaches from a local farmer distribute company. I have been enjoying peaches and peach pie and we have been processing peaches. We had a small debate as I love a peach with the skin on and Amber does too...but Maren was under the impression that one should peel the skin to avoid the yuks. Amber put a poll up on Facebook, and I am glad to say that eating the skin is just fine. But so is finding other ways to eat them...like pies!


See you tomorrow.

Your blogs are great - makes me smile and laugh. Thanks for the photos. We just got power back but Irene is still south of us and headed into NH. Much nicer to look at your photos and write up than watch the wind and rain.

And now I need to throw in my latest request: a photo of all of you in ONE photo! yes, like your Mom does with her timer & tripod.

See, if I can request and get a photo of the inside of the tree house (Thanks) then I can try and demand more......thanks for putting up with me.

Susanna: peaches are ok, but I think bananas, oranges and tomatoes have a three-way tie in my book. Tomato a fruit?

The peaches and cream pie looks way too good! Amazing really. Maren thinks she will try it tomorrow. Yay!

A picture of everyone? Hmm:)

Glad you're having a nice visit. Aurora is definitely a sweet and helpful little visitor. I vote for peach skin on. Preston is sure getting tall!

What a fun time with the cousins together.
As for peaches, always ate them with the skin - but they need to be ripe - Julian, you look great digging into that peach.
