    Homemade Cocoa Marshmallows and S'mores.

    This last weekend, we made another batch of marshmallows.  Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I didn't haven enough light karo syrup, so used some dark syrup, too.  I was afraid the marshmallows wouldn't turn out white, but Ryan suggested we add some cocoa powder to the powdered sugar mixture.  Okay - GREAT IDEA!  They were so yummy.  We even cut some big for s'mores.  Did I mention they were yummy? :)

    Small Wonders at the Corn Maze

    Small Wonders had a field trip to a local Corn Maze.  We are so blessed with such a great preschool program and teachers.  The boys were invited to come along, too, so we all loaded up and headed out to get lost in the corn! 

    Allison is looking at the map on the postcard. 

    Ryan, Turner and a friend, Perry. 

    4 boys.

    Allison, the hog!

    About the mid-way point of the maze, there's a bridge that takes you up and over.  The kids loved looking out over the whole maze!  I can't believe I didn't take a picture from up there!

    The boys and Perry.  We are in the same Sunday school class and small group as Perry's parents.  We really love that family! 

    At certain points they had questions you could answer, multiple choice.  Each choice had a different direction to go.  The boys loved this!
    Mrs. Carol in the front car, and Allison in the third!

    Allison and Leslie - they've been together for both years at PreK. 
    The Three Amigos.  They were all in the same class last year, too!  So cute!  Allison, Taylor, and Leslie.

    Turner loved the corn box - instead of a sand box. 

    Allison and Taylor!

    Thank you, Mrs. Carol and Mrs. Gwen for such a fun preschool class!!

    Apple Days

    When we got home from Silver Dollar City, Aunt Lisa and Annika and Mira were at our house!  The next morning, we worked on making apple sauce and apple chips.  The kids all had a blast peeling and slicing the apples.  Allison never left the table.  I think she peeled 50 apples by herself.  The apple sauce is soooo good! 

    Mira wasn't quite strong enough to do the peelers, so she just ate the apples!

    Silver Dollar City

    Last week we headed out to Silver Dollar City for Ryan's birthday.  Of course, Ryan - the goofy, full-of-personality, camera-shy kid isn't in any of these pictures! 

    Andy and Allison watching the stunt show.  The green shirt is Ryan!

    Part of the show. 

    The show was very entertaining!  It's too bad I didn't get a picture of the guy whose butt was on fire!

    We met up with some good friends at SDC!  Allison really likes Maddy, and thankfully Maddy was blessed with a lot of patience!

    Grace and Allison.

    Turner - finally where he belongs! Ha ha!
