Cows like Goldfish...

And horses like milk.

Pics of Violet and John. Violet is trying to give Mini a hug or as we call it 'pat them gently'. This is also the name of a book about pets that we have read over and over since she was about 6 months old. I'd have to say I think reading this book has helped with learning to not grab at the dogs. She barely touches them when she pets them, it's pretty cute.


So I pretty much have breakfast, lunch, and dinner covered. I've also got a pile of veggies and a pile of fruit. I think I'm pretty much done. I do plan on making some cookies and make a cookie sheet out of thin ply wood painted silver. I thought the cookies would go great with the little tea set she'll be getting for xmas.

Sandwich with 2 slices of bread, lettuce (2), slice of cheese, 2 tomatoes, and what I'm calling salami or mystery lunch meet. Bread made out of fleece, everything else made from wool felt.

2 apples, 2 pears, 2 oranges, 1 banana, 1 lime, and 1 lemon. All made from fleece except the stems, leaves, and banana peel which are made from wool felt.

Pizza that fits together like a puzzle. Peppers, pepperonis, and mushrooms are wool felt. The rest is made from fleece.

Turkey! Drumsticks are attached with velcro. I've got a wood dowel rod inside the bone of the leg for stability. All made of fleece.

I have some more videos to post. It took a while to get this one up because I had to reformat the file. Hope to post the rest soon.

We went to St.Louis for the holiday weekend. Our plan was to go to the zoo again but it rained all day Saturday. So we decided to head to the Science Center and let Violet and Jackson run around. We went very early. It was a good thing too, because it started to fill up fast. By the time we left for lunch it was packed. We did head over to the Zoo for lunch inside the Living World. Then we left and Violet passed out in the car.

Apparently looking through glass windows was the highlight for these two.

This was the first visit that Violet and Jackson really played together. It was fun watching them. I have some video of the two of them that I'll try posting tomorrow.
