We found the Dalek from the Christmas parade in Tulsa, to the extreme delight of our Whovian children. It definitely amuses me that they like Dr.Who, and I have to be careful who is watching as some are more sensitive to scary stuff than others, but this was just fun. Logan does a creepy good ,"Exterminate" impression.
The blackberry,strawberry,pomegranite,raspberry,blueberry mead is in the last fermentor now and will be ready for bottling in a week or two.(This pic is the secondary fermentor). The last batch was easily the best stuff Brian has brewed. He wanted to do a lambic this time but the one he was going to do is out of production so he went with a mead. I am glad for it.
We have picked up a couple gingerbread sets on clearance and the children have had a blast decorating them. Jubilee and Pippi have especially enjoyed playing with their Lalaloopsy minis in the gingerbread train.
Lucian is about to be 9 months! He loves to suck is lip, blow raspberries, and "sing". He is taking four steps at a time,consistantly now, and is really just the most joyous baby! He has a fever today and is still happy and gurgling, despite radiating heat. I am nursing him as much as possible and just holding him to keep him from overdoing it. His resperations seem a bit labored too. I despise cold and flu season. Pippi was vomiting a few days ago, but no one else seems to have picked it up. We did miss church just to be on the safe side...this week seems all out of order now.
Today I am continuing my quest to reduce stuff in the house. We are moving the parrot cage that we house chicks in out to the henhouse. We can heat it just as well out there and that will free up a lot of laundry room floor space! I want to get rid of half the furniture in the house too. Especially the couches, which are really not suitable for our family.
