A Little Of It All

Three days left to post a comment for the give-a-way. Click Here!

Last Sunday after church, we headed outside to give bike riding lessons. I've posted a few pictures...well...a lot of pictures.

Faith, the athletic one on the bunch decides to go first.


"Faith, put your feet here."


"Wooahhh...Daddy.....I'm a little crooked!"


Crash... right into the garden! At least she's still smiling.


Faith took a break while Lib took a shot. But it was short lived.


Faith tried again, and again ended up in the garden. But she didn't give up. Look at Lib helping her. They can be so sweet ...sometimes!


Hey...she's got the hang of it now. She has the look of confidence!


Lib and Brooklyn decided it was safer being the cheerleaders.



"This is how it's done, girls!" (Kind of reminds me of the circus when I was a kid)



Trinity stayed inside and loved on Major



And I made an Apple Crisp. Starr over at Cooking With The Preacher's Wife posted this recipe and believe it or not it was my first time to bake with apples. (I know Nanny...shame on me.) It turned out wonderfully, and it was so simple. Click here for the recipe.



Our friendly neighborhood girl came over to play last night, but it was homework time in our house. She wanted to help Faith, so here is a little video of them working together.

My mom and stepdad are coming in a week. Preparation are already being made! We've been looking forward to this for a while. We'll celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas and three birthdays while they are here. All good excuses to eat!

Okay, only three days remaining to post a comment to qualify for "The Kitchen Trio". Click here to see the rules.

Have a great weekend!

Oh how sweet! They'll get the hang of it soon. :) I hope no one got any scraped knees.

Enjoy your time with your family!

Very sweet photos.

Dad also joined in.

Your apple crisp looks great must try it.

Wow, that was a really fun post. So did they end up learning to ride or put it off for another day.

I love apple Crisp, our dear Nanny used to make a wonderful one.

Anyhow, can't wait till you call my name on your give-a-way! ;0)

It is called Pampered Chef Kitcen Spritzer. In the past I have had my mom order them from a Pampered Chef party and send them to me. Thankfully, we can now get it in Northern Ireland. I did notice that EBay sometimes has them, if you ever order from there. Hope this is a help to you.

Awww what great pics Nina! I remember those days w/ my own kids. Some days it seems like 100 yrs ago, and other times it feels like just yesterday.And I'm so happy the apple crisp turned out good for you! That is indeed my favorite dessert! Have a blessed day!

That is the greatest feeling, to just be a Daddy that helps out his girls and trains them to do something, I know how that feels, ours are now 4 yrs. old and 15 months old. These are some great pics of a great time.
