Hot cocoa spiced up

We've discovered a really yummy way to make hot chocolate. It's been in the 50's out here so we've really been enjoying having something warm to drink. Just boil 2-3 cinnamon sticks for about 10 minutes in about 4 cups water. Boil until the water turns nice and red. Then just add it to your favorite hot cocoa mix. It's really simple and a great way to enjoy some hot chocolate!

Shoes, spoons, and other unmentionables

Sequoia is potty training. It's a real advendture; I fished a spoon and a shoe out of the toilet today. Apparently she thinks lots of stuff can go in the potty, not just the you know, usual stuff. But she stayed dry all day; I'm really proud of her. She doesn't know it but she is really saving us a lot of dough. Buying diapers for two kids is mucho expensivo! This girl can give some dirty looks!

Blessing Blanket

Missing: One used teddy bear wearing green Mr. Potato Head glasses. Goes by the name of "Bear".Found: One soggy teddy bear. Seems to have fallen into a dump truck full of water. Unkown on how this happened. Seems to be intentional, subjects are being questioned.

As promised, some pictures of the blessing blanket for Mamu. Ignore Dave's incredibly sleepy look. Hey, want do you want if you have to wake up at 4 a.m. every morning?
