The kids thought it would be fun to clean windows.
Reuben couldn't reach the top ones so he got a kitchen chair...
Still not tall enough so...a stool...on a chair.
I didn't realize how precarious this was until I was just looking at these pictures...

He may not have been impressed with his cake,
but he did put is 'all' into blowing out the candles:)
You'd think with that effort (see the flame all bent over)
he would only need one try...but it took three!
Good thing he only had the #5 candle...not 5 single candles!!
The kids would have been waiting a long time to eat a cupcake.

When I was little, I would try to find any excuse not to have to eat pea soup.
Crazy...'cause this is the best pea soup recipe out there!! So delicious!!
(and for the record...no excuse got me out of eating it).
If you are interested, here's the recipe.
Thanks Mom, for letting me share this...it's too good not to share:)
Split Pea Soup
Soak 500g (or more) dried green split peas overnight in your big soup pot.
In the morning, add:
1 leek, cut up
3 potatoes, cut up
1 large onion, cut up
1 small celery root, cut up small (if you can't find this, add celery instead)
1 small smoked pork hock
6 small beef bouillon cubes
- and enough water to fill your pan
Cook on low until the veggies have mostly 'fallen apart'. Stir regularly.
Remove the pork hock, cut off fat layer, and cut up the meat and add to soup.
Add farmers sausage.
Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
Stir often!! Very important, or you'll have burnt pea soup.
Enjoy with bread or crackers.
