weekly update!

Sorry I haven't been so great at updating we have been super busy!!

Kate started Brownies last week and I am a co-leader. We get to do so many things this year. Sell Cookies is the best part!!! I am sure we will be knocking on many of your doors for orders!!! Kate has also had three spelling test so far this year and she has scored a 101 on each test. She is really doing well in school.

Noah is doing great in school too. His teacher is very impressed with his puzzle solving skills. He loves to do puzzles and is really getting into Legos. He has earned a orange strip in Karate. We are practicing on all his moves.

Maggie has been sick for the last couple of days. She has had a on and off fever and a bad head cold. I hope that she feels better soon. Her new word is puppy! I hope she isn't trying to tell me something. Her daddy has probably been secretly whispering this in her ears!

As for Noah and I we are doing pretty good. We have a super big cook this weekend for St. Joseph's Catholic Church. This is our largest cook ever. We are cooking for 280 people. I will take pictures this weekend with the smoker at its fullest capacity! We are talking 38 Boston butts! We are also doing chicken and baked beans. Click here to view the full menu.
