t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


The Big Dinosaur Party

Is that a fierce looking dinosaur cake or what?

The party kicked off with a search for the missing stegosaurus eggs.
We then made some fossils and impressions of dinosaurs....

Followed by the obligatory dinosaur pinata...
We then morphed from club-swinging cave dwellers into meticulous paleontologists digging delicately for fossil chocolate chips in our rocks (vegan pumpkin cookies).
We wound things down with our Caramelly Popcorn "Cake" and presents.
