We're in Colorado for Christmas and its snowing!! I didn't pack all the snow gear for nothing! Grandma outlasted Mom and Dad in the cold. Anna and Jacob had a blast. Isaac couldn't keep his gloves on an one dip with bare hands into the snow sent him crying and back inside!

I don't know if anything makes sense or even where exactly I was going with this post. I know this...I covet your prayers-for patience in abundance, for wisdom in figuring out what, if anything, has caused this change, to remember what a gift Anna is, even when she makes me want to pull every last strand of my hair out!

Anyway, the first thing I made with it was Grandma J's famous rolls! Anna and Jacob both helped me roll out the dough, cut it into triangles, and roll them up! They were great helpers! Anna learned about yeast and fractions, but don't tell her she was doing school after supper!! ;) And I must say, the rolls are delicious! I subbed in 2 cups of whole wheat flour and they still taste really good. Can't wait to do more baking!!

I kept getting an error message on my phone when I would try to take a video or upgrade an app, telling me I had run out of storage. Well, that could have been because I had over 800 pictures and videos on my phone! (not the 600 I told you, Dad) Whoops. I have it set up to sync to the computer every day, but I need to figure out how to set it up so it will delete them off my phone once they're synced! And since I realized I haven't posted any pictures for quite a while...here ya go! :)
I did NOT put them up to this! :) I realized it was a little too quiet and found them both content, looking at books!
Isaac still loves baby Rhys!
We celebrated Jacob's birthday at Aunt Cara and Uncle Terry's house this year. She made his cake (of course!) and I had just about everything I needed to decorate for a John Deere-themed birthday!! :)
It was also the weekend we celebrated Mia & Kaedyn's birthdays and had the 2nd "annual" Stinemetz 5K! Busy times. But we got to use our camper!! We took it out to Jeremy's to give everyone a bit more space (and we thought there would be a lot more people). The kids absolutely loved it! I can't wait to use it "for real"!!
Uncle Terry helped her come up with the hay field idea for his cake. He said his cake was his favorite part of his party!
Papa's got his hands full!
One night Aaron & Jamie found a newborn calf, tied up and abandoned, next to Jeremy's house! Poor guy still had his cord, so he wasn't very old.
He's having a lot of fun with school this year and is already reading 3-letter words!
We learned about fingerprints one day...
I made some mini pizzas (with homemade sauce...YUM!) for our picnic supper when we went to the state fair.
Isaac's favorite part? The tractor "trolley" ride from the car to the gate! He got so upset when we got off and then when we went back out to eat supper, he would dissolve into tears every time it went by and we didn't get on!
(he dumped a cup of water on himself, I promise!)
Avid reader. Except she said the Boxcar Children mysteries are too scary now, so I think we'll start her on the Little House on the Prairie series.
I made up a game today. The kids kept asking for a name, so I called it "Letter Hop". For Jacob, whatever letter his rock landed on, he had to tell me a word that started with that letter. For Anna, she had to spell the word. They had fun!
