Lemon-basil sorbet, melon seeds, drawings and Christmas

We discovered lemon and basil go really well together in sorbet. Sugar, lemon, water, freshly chopped basil.
Did you know that, like pumpkin seeds, you can roast melon seeds? I didn't. These were from a spanspek, or cantaloupe
Noah is really into bones. Which morphed into fascination with "the Human Body". Here, he asked me to draw kidneys and a bladder to colour in, and then after he coloured it in, he copied me, with a second bladder "for emergencies". I like how he thinks.

Our Christmas tree is in a pot, borrowed yearly from my dad, who keeps it alive the rest of the year. Inspired by Eugene's cousins in Texas, we are trying out origami- Noah's a little young for it, but he loves watching.
