Bread and Bracelets

For Better to Give Than to Receive during B week, Arin made braided bread for Uncle Brian.  She quickly learned the braiding pattern (over two, under one).  I did have to help tighten up the braid, but otherwise she did that part.  Arin thought the greatest part of making this bread was when she painted the bread with a beaten egg.  Ella also helped brush the egg on the bread.  We also made a second loaf of this bread for our family and it was so good.  The recipe can be found here.


She also beaded a black and blue bracelet for Brianna.  This bracelet was more difficult than the amethyst anklet that she made last week.

Thanks for the compliments on the bread! It was the first time that we had attempted challah bread, but it won't be the last! No, Joli, we just used plain old store bought white flour for this bread. Here I am with buckets of good wheat and I used white flour!!! But, I wasn't sure if my brother liked wheat bread and since it was a gift, I wanted it to be something that I knew he'd really enjoy (and he did!).
