a garage sale...

We had a garage sale last month and the kids wanted to do a lemonade stand and earn their own money...but since it was the middle of winter...I talked them into a hot chocolate stand instead.
L. was certainly not happy about being out of bed...the funny thing is I told her she didn't have to get up...but the thought of her big brother doing it without her made her get out of bed...but with attitude!
She soon got over always.
J. felt he wasn't selling quite as many as he added to his 'hot chocolate 50c' sign....' or 5c' !!!!


Sooooo....the husband's effort in posting was...well...let's focus on the fact that he made an effort shall we? :)

Ok so I've had a few people 'mention' that I haven't put anything on here for agessss.....and yes they are right...and no I still don't fell like blogging...:)
Here are just a few things that have happened since we last blogged:

1. We got 3 chickens...they have no names...unless you call 'hey chicken' a name.
2. The big girl turned 6.
3. The little girl turned 1.
4. The big girl is learning to cross-stitch.
5. The little girl has learnt to crawl.
6. The big girl learn all about applying make-up from You Tube.
7. The little girl has 'apparently' learnt to say 'Daddy'....according to Daddy
8. The big girl has been keeping her room clean for at least 2 weeks now...thank you Aunty Cole
9. The little girl learnt to wave.
10. And this all happened while the big boy (not to be mistaken for the BIG big boy - daddy), was on the computer designing roller-coaster's and water slides....(rollercoaster tycoon)...and has now decided that he will be an architect when he grows up - like his Poppy - but UNLIKE his Poppy he will design (I quote) "FUN things and BETTER things"......poor poppy...your skycrapers are just not good enough...
And now I hope you will forgive me for the photo overload....I couldn't help it....some of them are just so stinkin' cute!
and because i forgot to put the setting on 'none' when I uploaded the photo' have to scroll down...:)
yes she decorated her sister's cake all by herself!
