Kyla enjoys being in the kitchen, and we have been enjoying the one on one time with Madi and Denver at school. Today she wanted to bake, so we got out my old school cookbook, and made some yummy pinwheel scones, with the added bonus of chocolate chips. We made one half choc chip free, so that I could have some. Totally easy, pretty and delicious.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
