More Birthdays and other Random Photos

Marah celebrated a birthday! 3 years old.

She had been asking for pink cupcakes. Well the day came and she decided she wanted purple cupcakes with pink frosting. I made a new recipe out of the cookbook and added purple food coloring. They turned out this funky mauvish color and taste awful! The kids enjoyed them but a friend and I agreed they were bad. At least the frosting was delicious.
He is so a little brother. Notice the mischevious grin.
Now he lets go. Marah was annoyed at first and then realized what was happening and thought it was great fun. lol

She is saying "let me out!" Now that she has discovered outside she will always go outside if you ask her. She practically runs for the door when I say "do you want to go outside?"

I was inside with the other kids doing something and as I walked by I noticed Joe and Marah playing ball together. Marah was just so excited to be actually hitting the ball and Joe looked like he was really enjoying the one on one time with Marah. I had to snap this quickly before Marah noticed. Not sure whats up with Joe though. lol

This is Marah's garden. Notice the large patch in the middle thats snap peas, on the right pole beans, on the left radishes and carrots. She also planted lettuce, corn, squash, zuchini, pumpkins, tons of flowers, cucumbers, and more. Note that her garden is only about 2 feet by 1.5 feet.

We had to put the Rhode Island Reds in chicken time out. Someone at 4H suggested it as they were tag team attacking the new chickens.

Joe went to St. Cupcake for my birthday cupcakes. YUM!
