We Love Visitors!!


We love to have visitors come to our home.  We don't have a huge home but we do like it to be open to friends and family, we consider it a blessing to be able to host those who come. 

It is even greater when Grandpa, Carolyn show up with cousins Jordan & Gracie!!  What a special treat.  

Aaron and I managed to keep it a complete surprise from the kids.  They were very excited when we showed up at school to pick them up.

A Welcome basket for Carolyn.
It is all British for her first trip to the UK.
(even the basket is made from wool from
British alpaca's!)

It's Science fair time....

Well, as the title suggests its that time of the year again, Science Fair!!  This year Eden is working together with a friend from her class to show how to make a light bulb work.  They have decided to make 'bulb bugs' as a more unique way of presenting the light bulb.  On their table at the in school science fair they will have many household objects and people will have to try and guess which ones will work and which won't.  You will be surprised by some of them!

A Family Favorite

Banana Chocolate Chip Loaf


A family favorite in our house is Banana Chocolate chip loaf.  This loaf is a bit different to the traditional one, It comes up lighter in color on the inside and in my opinion a lot more moist.  The kiddies love it and it's a great way of using up those over ripe bananas.

Since we enjoy it so much we thought we would share the recipe with you!

10oz  Plain Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
1/4tsp salt
4 ripe banana's
4oz fine white granulated sugar
1 egg, beaten with a fork
3 fl oz milk
3 fl oz vegetable oil
2-3 oz chocolate chips

Temperature: 375-400 F
Time: 20 minutes

Enjoy!!
