As promised, Lil'Gal's completed project

In my previous post I showed the kids working on their shop projects  but Lil'Gal still had to put the top on her art table and they decided to add castor wheels (because that table is REALLY. HEAVY).

So, as promised, here is a pic of her with her completed Shop Project. She painted it turquoise - her favorite color.

In addition to the shop projects Lil'Gal decided to do photography again. Santa brought her a really cool camera so she staged a few scenes. These are the two she is entering for the show this year.

Titled: Aggie Mascot

Titled Bunny at Sunset
Brandi in Aggie attire is just adorable. I swoon over! That picture will be framed and going on Lil'Gal's wall after the Livestock Show.

Tomorrow they are excused from school as we have four items to bake for the show and some require chilling in the fridge; cooling before the next step and it just ain't right to have to keep a kid up after school until midnight to work on their baking projects.

They go back to school for 1/2 day Tuesday but I'll be up at the show judging homemaking projects once I turn in the kids items so I'll be up there all day. Then, Wednesday our bunnies get sifted. The bunnies are doing really well. I'm really pleased, demeanor and fur and (meat) I some of y'all don't wanna' hear about that but that's what the livestock show is all about - after all.

And, NO. HOPPER. (Those of you who followed our rabbits last year know about HOPPER.)

I'll have to post at the end of the week (well maybe Sunday because rabbits are last on the sale list so we'll all be up there until midnight or later (*sigh). But next year that puts rabbit rotation in first for sale.

Still, its fun and there's food and beer and good camaraderie and that's another great part of the show.

Anyhow, been working on notebooks and projects and photographs and paintings and printing recipes and tomorrow the kids will be baking so I'm going over and out. But, this will be an exciting week.

[Oh, and FYI to my dismay... Christmas hasn't been put away... Don't judge me.]

Smile at someone and throw out a compliment! It'll add some happiness to the world!

It's that time again!! Between working with the kids two notebooks and their notes and pics of their projects and baking projects and school and now the show is here it's been crazy-mad-busy around here.

(Tired of hearing that one, eh?)

Anyhow, the chicken is baked, the recipes are typed, one notebook is finished both shop projects almost complete and Lil'Gal is going to paint her picture she drew on canvas tomorrow to enter.

She is also entering two photographs this year.

So here is what I have pics of so far:

Lil'Gal working with Daddy (these pics, I just adore) and she's always fashionable, LOL!

Who says a girl can't build stuff? NOT. In this house! She LOVED, absolutely loved every minute of building her arts and crafts table with her Daddy.

This pic cracks me up, looking through Daddy's tool drawers and cabinets for the thingie she needs.

How can than NOT crack you up or touch your heart??? Working with Daddy and looking for the tools. This is framable. I tell ya'.

Farmer, Jr. of course kicked it out of the ball park or should I say crop field again this year.

Lemme' see what pics I have on hand in my photos for Farmer, Jr. :-)

Finished project! YAY! Now if we can just get the Project Notebooks done we'll be good. And lots of baking for projects on Monday. Oh, and Lil'Gal has to paint her pic she drew on canvas.

Otherwise all is *SNORE*
