Learning to crochet

Mackenzie decided to expand her crafty knowledge to include crochet.  Here are a few pictures.

Trying it on her own

Just a little bit frustrated


Mackenzie’s New Hair

Mackenzie has been trying to grow out her bangs.  It’s been about a year since she had then trimmed last.  Well, last week she decided she was done having them hang in her face.  So…the new hair:

Lunch with Marcus

Monte went to school today to have lunch with Marcus.  On the menu, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. 


Caught a glimpse of Mackenzie too

Holy Fire, Batman!!!

Every year we (or our neighbor) burns the tall grass between our yard and theirs.  Then in the spring it grows back nice and green.  Here are some pictures I just took of the blaze. 

Mackenzie Sews

Mackenzie has been begging for me to teach her how to sew.  So, being a day off from school, we decided to work on a pillow.  She was enjoying herself.  I told her to watch out for the needle and the screw that tightens the needle.  Guess what?  The needle screw got her.  She bled a little bit, but went right back to her project.
