The ones on the right are purple for the little miss and the other pair is a dark forest green (although I know they look nearly black in the photo) for the little guy.
Baby Girl's hair is just long enough for two cute little pony tails of which she's very proud. Here she's showing them off . . . along with her new pair of mittens which she put on and wouldn't take off.
Baby Boy, on the other hand, HATED his mittens because when he took them off they wouldn't go away!
Here are "the men" coming in from getting a basket full of kindling wood. (Baby Boy is wearing his "old" brown pair of mittens, you'll notice.)

Since Papa Pea offered to go down into the root cellar yesterday to get me some potatoes and carrots, I told him to bring up some apples, too, so I could bake something "apple-y."
I made a pan of Apple Slices and when I put it in the oven to bake I placed a sheet of aluminum foil on the rack below it to catch drips should it burble over. Which it did.
But the "burbling over" missed the foil and made a nasty, burnt, stuck-like-glue, smoldering puddle on the bottom of the oven. Note on door handle is so I don't light the oven before taking the time to clean up the mess. (Not that I've ever done such a thing before. Gosh, no. Nuh-uh. Nope. Never.)
