A little while ago, we found a roll of film while cleaning.Â We had no idea how old the film was, but assumed a few years old. I took the film in to get it developed and found this wonderful Christmas memory!
The year Adrian was born, the McGuire boys decided to have a beard growing contest. There was no “winner” but we all enjoyed seeing all the fuzzy faces 🙂 Adrian is about 9 months old in this picture.
We are working on some Christmas baking today.Â Andrea helped me make some Gingerbread and Dark Chocolate Caramels. Mark was our “slave” and did most of the stirring.Â Tomorrow we will finish them up by wrapping them in wax paper.Â Today, the kids sampled them, and as Megan said, “MMMMMM.”
The kids are complaining that Megan is coming up to them and stealing their spoons to eat their candy 🙂
Mark is very interested in electronics.Â Allan bought him an Arduino compatible deviceÂ so that he can learn how to do real programming. He has been having a great time learning. The other day, Adrian decided he wanted to learn too.Â So Mark started teaching Adrian how to program too!
Are you tired of the rain?Â Instead of singing your favorite rainy day songÂ or dreaming that the rain was snow, take my kid’s advice and go play in it!Â Have fun!
When you come in, cold and wet, remember you are soaking wet and do not get your Momma’s floor all dirty and wet! Take a long hot bath (or shower, if you prefer) and eat some cookies and drink hot apple cider.
After a few “pretty” pictures, the kids needed a break. They asked if they could design the next shot. Thinking they would do the normal cross eyed, tongues out picture, I was surprised when they came up with this idea almost immediately.
