Dallas does good.

so here he is doing his school project... chocolate chip cookies! what a huge mess was found all around afterwards though! holy smokes batman. poor Dallas ended up making two whole batches as he didn't quite follow the ingredient instructions to the letter and the cookies ended up pretty flat! some burned up and stuck to the pan, which needed to be thrown out. wow. i quickly ran to the grocery store before it closed and saved the day (night)! i think that he ended up making about 60 cookies and he told me that some kids ended up asking for a third helping and that he got a good grade on the presentation. way to go kid! i wonder how much of the batter he ended up eating in the raw though... we finally finished cleaning the kitchen only today. amazing. he loves cooking though! Kim bought a small charcoal grill a couple weeks ago and now that is the hot ticket to dinners. literally. what fun! spring is great! what are all YOU kids doing out there? don't you love this time of year? everyone is happy. i've even seen several Red Fox too! plenty of love-struck turkey too. it's so funny to watch them puffed up and strutting around. let's go camping! Dallas, Mei Mei and i will take a bike ride around here a little later on today. the weather is great! a little too windy but that's o.k., we won't complain! oh yes, we'll plant some strawberries, raspberries and blackberry bushes too! we even have two trees to plant! a Weeping Willow and a Red Maple for now will do just fine thank you! Arbor Day still has to send us 8 more trees though! i forgot what they were exactly but it was a mix of flowering trees and shade trees. go back and see my pictures of this place and you'll notice that there aren't any big trees around! evergreens were planted a year or two ago but they are still very tiny. look again in a few years though and see the transformation! i hope that it will all turn out in a good way!
Dallas just changed Mei Mei's poopy diaper and now she's running after him with the wipes and powder! put it away Dallas! so funny! hey! put her pants back on kid! she loves that boy like there's no tomorrow! let's go outside...
