We have been painting the past few days and the kids love to get there hands all messy in the paint. Reese is very concerned when she gets dirty and Brodie just loves to "PAINT" as he yells. With Reeses turkey family she is like her mom, everything is a little better with a little (or a lot) of glitter. It just makes me smile :) Love her!

Reese got a butterfly garden for her birthday so we had to quickly order her some caterpillars. They came in last week and Reese has been so enamored with them. All we hear about is those caterpillars. Here is a picture of her caterpillars about 6 days old (since we got them). They are all girls because Reese says so. Here is a drawing of one she did all on her own! She is way cute about them! I didn't know my girl would be so happy with bugs!

This afternoon I made some homemade granola and it was soo yummy! It will be great by itself to snack on ot to make sweet healthy parfaits. I got the recipe from some lady on you tube.
2 cups oats (not instant the old fashioned kind)
1/2 cup nuts (what you like I did walnuts)
1/3 generous cup of PURE maple syrup
1/4 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
her recipe she put in a 1/2 cup dried fruit when it cooled but i didnt want fruit in mine but i did add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
Pre-heat oven to 350. Put oats and nuts in a large bowl, in another mix syrup, oil, brown sugar and vanilla together until sugar is dissolved and pour over oat/nut mixture. Mix and spread on cookie sheet bake 18-20 min stirring a few times. Let cool, then store in covered container.
