Dying Cow

Set stage....
Asher heads outside to the porch to practice  the trumpet. Elayna  follows. She asks him if she can play. He says, "Just a minute, it's not working."  She says, "Are you bringing in a dying cow?"
Few minutes later...she says, "Is it still a dying cow?"
Asher laughing. Keep practicing Asher.
He let her play.

Bunkbed with history

I decided Saturday morning to set bunkbed up. 

The girls slept in their "new" bunkbed.
Lilia said, "being higher helps her sleep." Elayna woke up at 6:30 am to go potty and then got back in bed and told daddy "there are no stars out".  Our previous house we had stars on ceiling. When I asked her how we would get stars on ceiling she mentioned daddy's ladder. 
They loved sleeping on the bunkbed.

Some history:
My dad made this bed about time my youngest brother was born or soon after. I slept on it as a teenager and Nathan on bottom bunk. My great grandma A. sept on bottom bunk. The bunkbed is 30 years old. My parents brought it to me in their van at the other house and helped set it up. We took it apart. This time setting it up was a lot more work. :)

Dressing Up and Listening to Book

The girls love dressing up. I got some books on tape from library. They are listening to Mrs Nelson is Missing.  This is one of Ashers' favorite books.

Making Pink Cherry Cupcakes

Elayna loves to cook with Mommy. She helped count eggs and stirring everything.  Her favorite job was licking the beaters and bowl.

Fancy Lilia and Elections

Lilia had to dress up as a book character.  We choose Fancy Nancy. They colored an elephant by numbers at school. I thought it was fitting right before the election. We took girls with us when we voted.

Cutie Mark

Elayna loves My Little Pony. When she asks to watch Netflix it is to watch My Little Pony. 
Eeyore is her softie and she sleeps with it. She would like to take Eeyore everywhere.  She put a sticker on him and let us know that was his cutie mark just like pony's have. Wow! I think Elayna is the Cutie!

Reading Cereal Boxes

I am sure Asher and I never did this! Lilia lined up the boxes this morning and was reading. I mentioned to Asher that I never did this! :) She makes us smile! 

Tom Turkey in disguise!

The school sent a letter home from Tom Turkey.  He did not want to be Thanksgiving dinner. He asked us to help him with a disguise.  Lilia wanted a cat at first but I convinced her that a peacock would be better.
