Messy Day

 After taking inventory this morning and catching up on ironing, I realized that all of the Broken Dishes units were done for Jamestown Landing.  That lead me to start in on the string blocks which had fallen a bit behind. I was working my way through the second season on Downton Abbey while sewing.  It wasn't on Netflix, so I signed up for a free trial of Hulu+.  I am much more appreciative of Netflix now after spending most of the afternoon buffering or restarting. 
 As I was making a mess in the sewing room, Anna was working on a mess in the kitchen.  She had decided to make a birthday cake for her friend Sierra and somehow managed to scatter cake, frosting and fondant all over the kitchen. 
 She was quite happy with the finished cake though, and cleaned up most of the mess. 
After lego practice Ryan had his first football game of the season.  He is in a different league this year so that he could be on a team with his friend Troy.

Messy day...but AWESOME day as well! It's crazy how time is flying and everyone is growing up and starting in on a new "busy" or another :)

Anna definitely made a cake to be proud of. And the BEST cooks are messy cooks :)

Great progress on Jamestown Landing.
