The kids and I have been reading the Chronicles of Narnia books aloud before bed and, occasionally, at tea time. For some of them, it's a re-read. For others, the lovely stories are brand new. Ben heard all of the Narnia books read aloud three times by the time he was nine. When I realized that some of my children hadn't any idea of who Mr. Tumnus was, I decided to fix that. We are most of the way through The Magician's Nephew. I am always torn whether to begin there or with The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Thoughts?
I'm still working on Mae's Owlet. I thought I would have finished it by now except that, instead of knitting, I've been cleaning like a crazy woman. Actually, Mary and Christopher and I have been cleaning like crazy... people. Here is my progress on her Owlet...Can you see the owls?
I LOVE them.
Not only have we been reading the Narnia stories, but after receiving a thoughtful family Christmas present of a bookstore gift card from Ben's godmother for Christmas, we all went shopping for books and I bought myself the Unofficial Narnia Cookbook. I so love this book! It contains a recipe for every mention of food from the series of books. I made the delicious porridge (I've never had porridge before) the other day and we are anxious to try our hand at making Turkish Delight!
