Miscellaneous pictures

Thought it was time to throw in some random pictures.  So, here goes.

 All my new kids have totally gotten over the fear of the dogs as you can tell.  Summer, getting ready to fall asleep with Alaska.  She makes sure the dog is covered up.  Alaska is our cuddle bug.  Total lap dog. 

Logan, helping to clean.  Yes, everyone is helping.  They are really motivated to move since we told them they are all getting their own room.  Can not wait to finish the fixing up of this house so we can put it on the market.  

 Summer showing off that her sisters put lip gloss and mascara on her.

Totally zonked.  And we are not about to wake her.  

 Max, squeezing lemons for some homemade lemonade.  Nothing like fresh squeezed.  Trouble it, takes up 8 lemons. 

One of my favorite pitchers.  Someone made this pitcher.  Isn't it great?!  Warren did some computer work with her and she thanked us by giving us this pitcher.  Wonderful and very beautiful too.  

More pictures and posts on the way.  Got to check on the fries.  Kids love the homemade french fries just as much as the frozen so fresh it is.  We are slowly trying to cook almost everything from scratch.  Slowly.  We also tried many homemade cleaners.  Not doing the floor cleaner again.  We'll stick to Pinesol thank you very much.  Trying to make things a little more cost effective b/c we know Summer's therapies will be adding to costs each week.  So trying to see how we can trim some things and save a few extra dollars.  Hey, every little bit helps.  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

  1. Really enjoy reading your blog. Our 5-year-old Bulgarian boy is coming home in February. Your honesty and openness is helping our family prepare.

    Here's the floor cleaner that I use, and I really like it:

    1/2 cup of vinegar
    1 to 2 squirts of liquid dish detergent
    Bucketful of warm water (about a gallon)
