I had been saving egg cartons for quite some time. Finally, one day I got an idea for a new transferring activity.
- - - Bowl
- - Cotton balls
- - Easy to operate tweezers – or as I used a bamboo toast tongs
- - Empty egg carton
Transfer cotton balls (snowballs to Jaden) from bowl to egg carton holes using only the tongs.
He LOVED it!
Make 1 lb. ground beef according to taco seasoning package directions. Layer tortilla chips, taco meat, and toppings on plate. We used shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, black beans, advocado, shredded muenster cheese. YUMMY!!!! Fast AND relatively healthy (as long as you put more veggies than meat!)
And, the toddler “muffin tin dinner” version.
So, it was brought to my attention today that I haven’t posted on this blog in over a month. And, when I looked back at all the pics waiting to have their stories told I realized HOW far behind I really was. So…..
Way back in the day – around Mother’s Day – we took a trip to NM, where I spoke at a Women’s Appreciation Luncheon, and CO where Stephen went to a training for LCEF. It seems life has been INSANE since then and I haven’t posted ANYTHING. I guess I’ll try to do some catching up. Sorry, that means the next several posts might be a bit dated! (even if they do still contain cute pics!)We didn’t get many pictures of this trip but, we did get to see one of Jaden’s favorite things. A TRAIN! The last coal burning steam engine to have been used, to be more specific.
Lucky us, there were also several tractors and building equipment set up along the side of the road near the park we stopped at as the crews took a break for the night. At first we weren’t sure if they were part of the “train display” but later, after climbing around and having a good time “driving” them, we figured they were probably just resting for the night. WHOOPS!
A while ago Grandpa H was fixing a cabinet and Jaden was over at their house. Of course, when it comes to tools, Jaden wants to jump right in. He is already getting to be a pro with a screwdriver (although he’s more likely to call it “turner” – Handy Manny you know).
Here he is helping to fix the cabinet!
