Lots of lots of Pinterest-found stuff . . .

Food:

These are a winner for the kids' lunch.  Well, all the kids minus Jonas.  Even Emmy will eat them!  I don't do the mini-size, just regular.  I also do the 1/2 applesauce and butter suggestion.

This was a winner for the boys, definitely not the girls.  Although I had one and like it a lot.  I'll definitely make them again for the boys' lunches.

Ben and I loved this soup.  I realize that soup and bread are now my favorite foods.  If we didn't add the mushrooms, I think the kids would have liked it more.  Maybe next time I won't add them.

We did this on our last camping trip.  It was awesome.  Everyone loved it.  I'll have to make it again in the comforts of our home.  It was fun, though, doing it over a fire!

Another delicious soup!

I've been doing some gift-thinking for the kids:

I'm totally doing this for our post-Halloween FHE treat:

Lucy's "schooling" activities:

It was fun!

Cute and fun!  It involved cutting and gluing and so it was a winner for Lucy.

We did this, too.  We cut up a bunch of scrap paper - too much, in fact.  I had to help a lot to get all the papers sorted.  But even if one dropped in the wrong place, Lucy corrected it herself and would put it in the right place.

I really do love pinterest.  I end up making recipes more than anything else that I pin.

i love the one with cheerios. i wonder how long it would keep ollie busy. i'd be happy with 15 minutes, though i'd love 20.
