The Walnut Acre Daily - Thursday, December 20

Words to Live By

2 Timothy 1:7

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Homeschool Fun

Michael and Calla watched Baby Jesus is Born and Merry Christmas Baby Jesus to go with our Jesse Tree readings. They also watched Children's Addition and the Letter I Song.

Our worksheets and coloring pages today came from 
3 Boys and a Dog (Color by Number Candy Cane)
Coloring Pages for Kids (Letter F)

Books We Enjoyed Today

I read the first three books with Michael, Calla and Gage at storytime this morning. The next two I read with CJ at bedtime this evening, and the last one I am reading myself. 

In the Kitchen

Amanda got the chili for dinner started in the crockpot this morning and then finished baking cookies with the last of the cookie dough from yesterday. Michael helped me make lunch by putting the meatballs and the sauce in a pan to heat for spaghetti.

I tried a new cornbread recipe to have with our chili this evening but it totally flopped. I had a favorite cornbread recipe I would usually make when we had chili, but the site it was on took it down so I've been on a hunt for another I like as well. I haven't found one yet so the search continues. 

We Are Going

Austin, Amanda, and Michael went to practice for the Christmas play this evening. They've been working hard on this and are excited.

Just For Fun

  1. Corn bread and chili are like peanut butter and jelly. You just cant have one without the other. :) I have a recipe I have used for 17 years now. I figure why change? It has a lot of sugar in it, but we like it that way. I use the Alber's Corn Meal Recipe. Maybe you could remember some of the basics. Sometimes I find that if I have made it enough, I actually can remember most with accuracy.

  2. What a fun glimpse into everyday life there : )

    The last time I made cornbread I screwed it up too. No clue why. It was too heavy. SO I went and bought a Jiffy mix for the next time, lol! :
