Walking Bug Thing

This Animation has actually been the product of over six month’s of off and on work. I built the model back in the spring, but I couldn’t get it to “walk” the way I wanted it to, so I just abandoned it until a few days ago, when I decided to give animating it another try. I think I’ve finally succeeded in creating a semi-realistic walking gait this time around.

Farm flyover

I was just goofing around one morning, trying to make a model of our house, and after a while I decided that our house would take too long to model, so I used the rough outline I’d already made to build a barn. My barn looked kind of lonely, just hanging out there in space, so over the next few days I added a silo, a windmill, a farmhouse, some fences and some grass, animated the camera to “fly” over the whole deal and, voila! I ended up with the animation below:

Run to the Lights

This Friday, 11-11-11, I was able to run in the Run to the Lights at Silver Dollar City with my dad and 3 oldest siblings. We all did pretty well, and although none of us broke any records (the course we had to run was viciously steep at times), we all had a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Redwall Dinner

As all of you who have been diligently following this blog for a while know, I read “Redwall” a few months ago, and really enjoyed it, so much in fact, that I am now reading it aloud to my siblings. The reason that I read “Redwall” in the first place was because it was one of the books I was required to read for an online grammar class that I’m taking through The Potter’s School, and one of the assignments we needed to do for the class was make a “Redwall” themed sword,tapestry or meal. I, never one to turn down a chance for a good meal, decided to go in that direction, and made “Hunter’s Hot-Pot”, which is basically a stew of carrots, potatoes, onions, peppers, spices and water with a fancy, “Redwally” name.

I had a lot of fun making it, although it was pretty easy, as all I had to do was chop up some vegetables and toss them in a pot of boiling water with some spices until they were soft, and I then got to do the part that was the most fun of all: eating it!

My mom thought it would be nice to have something to go with the Hot-Pot, so we not only had it, but we were also able to have  some biscuits (or, as my sister called them because they were made with flax seed and needed a “Redwally” name, ”Fall Flax Favorites”) that my mom had made earlier in the day. Everyone said that the food was delicious, although my dad pointed out that whoever the hunter was that invented this recipe wasn’t a very good one, as he hadn’t been able to catch anything to put in it!

If you’d like the recipe you can go to The recipe I used is fifth from the top.

“The T”

As you who have been reading our blog for a while may know, back in July I made everyone a dinner at “Adam’s Diner”. Well, I’ve done three more since then, each time with a different theme, and I thought I’d share some pictures with you from one that I did several Saturdays ago with my dear sister Rachel.

We did a sub sandwich shop theme, complete with homemade sub rolls.

Rachel whipped up a batch of chocolate milk, which was a big hit with everyone.

Rachel and I greatly enjoyed preparing the food, almost as much as everyone enjoyed eating it, which, in our family, is saying a lot!
