|Spicy Nuts & Bolts|
We made a bunch of snack foods to give as Yule gifts to friends and family. Three kinds of nuts and bolts, peppermints, fudge, banana bread, candied orange peel, candied almonds and cookies.

We made melt and pour soap and some lotion bars. I forgot to take pictures. I am having a lot of issues with our camera and we need a new one, it is a pain in the butt to use so a lot of the time we get doing something and are so engrossed in what we are doing that I totally forget to take pics. Sorry
We did a week long focus on the inner workings of the human body doing experiments on hinge and ball joints, synovial fluids, the lungs and diaphragm, the heart, balance and the inner ear and how sugars and starches react in the body. For Bug we used The Magic School Bus Human Body experiment Kit and the older Minions are working in The Neilson Biology textbook.
After learning about the Fukashima disaster and the plight of the Pacific seafood Bug asked if she could try Lobster as she might not have another chance. So we went all out and bought everyone in the family a live lobster and cooked them for our Yule dinner.

The oldest called us on Yule to wish us a Merry Yule and give us some very big news! His girlfriend is expecting in June!! The Minions are very excited to be aunts and uncles.
We have yet to have our cold snap so the Minions have been going out almost every day to toboggan and build snow forts etc. They have built a complex of tunnels and rooms all over the front yard under the snow.
At the end of December my older sister had a stroke :( The Minions spent a few days learning about stroke and the causes and effects of them.
We are ready to take on 2014!!
