Peanut Butter, Shutter Hugger and a Little More

This week we actually made peanut butter — a first for us. It even tasted good and was so easy to make. All we used was peanuts and peanut oil. We put the peanuts in the blender and added oil and then more peanuts and more oil until it seemed to be the right consistency. That was it. So easy but fun. 









My Shutter Hugger came and I couldn’t wait to try it out. It was a huge success with Bella. She looked at the little guy almost every time — sometimes even trying to grab him. For Sophia it was not much of a success. At first, it seemed like she actually looked at the camera for a second or two, but most of the time she didn’t care at all. I did get a couple of pics of Sophia actually looking at the camera and that is very unusual for her. 





Bethany had her CF appointment last Thursday and it was a great visit! Her numbers were back up and now we don’t have to go back until December. Such good news. We have worked and worked on this  — extra nebulizers, extra meds, running everyday and extra vest treatments during the day. I guess it worked. 
Bethany and Andrew have been collecting acorns and pine cones to paint and to maybe make a few fall decorations. The problem is that they can’t find many. But, I think they had fun looking and planning what they will make. 



Our first, and only, pumpkin so far  — Bethany is begging to buy more but it just seemed too early.
And last of all, Zola made an apple pie and it smelled so good cooking — and I don’t even like pie. I just love the way it makes the house smell. 


  1. Your children are all so beautiful but I have to laugh when I read some of your blogs and think to myself "Where did that kid come from?!" Every once in awhile one pops in that I swear I've never seen before! Some day you need to do a little snippet on each of you kids. You have an amazing family :)!

  2. I keep thinking I will tell a little about each of my kids, but never get around to it. I know when I am reading blogs I like to have an idea of who is who — I guess people feel the same way when they read mine.

  3. Hi Sharon, I thought the same thing as Erin when I saw the girls in the kitchen. I thought, "who is the sweetie with the braid?!" I always go back to the header picture to try to match them up but am not always sure I'm right.

    Anyway, I LOVE the pictures of Bella and Sophia. I think it's wonderful you have a couple great ones of Sophia looking straight ahead. Yay!

  4. Beautiful!
