Homemade Donuts

Saturday, February 25, 2012

I have been experimenting with making homemade donuts and this was my second batch.  The batch last weekend was more bready and these were more cake like.  The girls liked the others better and weren't too impressed with these (crazy kids, these were better!).  Whatever, Noah was clearly impressed.

Noah has been obsessed lately with looking in between all his toes.  He loves to take his shoes and socks off and check between every single toe and dig out the lint.  It's really really gross.  And he does it several times a day.  Well apparently that is no longer enough for him so today he decided to dig between Mackenzie's toes.  SO GROSS!!

Mackenzie has a problem with getting hot.  She is very hot natured and to fix it she always hikes up her shirt no matter what she is doing.  She was just sitting there watching TV, letting her belly air out.

Uber Cheap Bananas

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

I have found my absolute new favorite way to buy bananas.  Several times a week our Homeland takes their ripe bananas and puts a ton in a bag and sells them for $0.99!!!  The bananas always have several days of life left in them and we like them pretty ripe anyway.  What we don't eat I freeze for smoothies, ice cream and breads.   So cheap and yummy!

Freaky Good Dinner

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Jason made me this ridiculously good and fancy dinner tonight.   Smoked salmon with a cherry and cranberry chutney (notice the fancy curled orange peel on top!), rice and edamame.  YUM!

Spring Garden

Monday, February 20, 2012

This is the beginning of our spring garden.  I planted 2 types of peas, brussel sprouts, lettuce, dill, basil, and carrots.  Yum!  I just hope it all grows!

Love This

Sunday, February 19, 2012

I saw this on Pintrest a few weeks ago and knew I had to make one for my kitchen.  Now that we cook so much more our sink is always full of dishes.  But we are so blessed to have such wonderful food!

Noah dragged my makeup bag out today and insisted on emptying it and playing with all the contents.  His Daddy would be so proud.

Future Michael Jordan??

Friday, February 17, 2012

I am starting my future basketball star young.

Kenzie And Her People

Thursday, February 16, 2012

This is what makes Mackenzie the happiest in the whole world.  When her brother is napping and she can spread out all her "people".  Because when he wakes up it's ALL over.  He is like the Godzilla that crushes that attacks and destroys the cities.

Noah is obsessed with BIPS (dip).  He wants to BIP everything.  Today he had chicken nuggets with ketchup and then insisted on BIPPING his eggs in ketchup too.  Ewww....

My Sweet Boys

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Jason and Noah got me the bouquet of flowers and each of the girls a rose for Valentine's Day.  So sweet!

Just Popping Through With A Valentine For You

Monday, February 13, 2012

I have been looking for a cute and healthy Valentine for the girls to give out at school.  They get SO MUCH candy at school I know I can't be the only mom that is glad to see something slightly healthy in their Valentine's box.  I thought these were just adorable!

Have I Mentioned How Glad I Am That I Have A Boy?!?

Sunday, February 12, 2012

Noah woke up from his nap this afternoon and would only snuggle me a couple minutes.  I *thought* he walked into the playroom but then I heard him in the kitchen in the pantry.  I thought he was getting a box of cereal down to snack on, which is oddly one of his favorite snacks.  When he didn't bring it back to me I went to see what he was doing and this is what I found.  One box of spaghetti dumped all over the floor and he was feverishly working on the second.  *Sigh*  What am I going to do with this kid?!

Happy Birthday Reese!

Saturday, February 11, 2012

Today was the girls BFF Reese's 4th birthday.  As always a good time was had by all!


Friday, February 9, 2012

Deborah hooked us up with tickets to the PBR tonight and it was so fun!  The girls love bull riding and Noah has never been.  He was pretty entertained for most of it but started to get a little cranky toward the end.  It was WAY past his bedtime!

Little Cowboy

Noah got himself all dressed up and nowhere to go!

Kindle Awesomeness

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

I have had my Kindle for about a month and a half now and I LOVE IT SO MUCH!  Now I don't know how I ever lived without it.  It's so nice to have my books in one place and it is so easy to keep in my purse. 

Smart Girl

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

 Macy seems to have trouble sometimes at school mainly because she is easily distracted and gets bored.  They gave a standardized test at school and she got a 97%!!  She is such a smart girl when she applies herself. 

Wild Hair Day

Monday, February 6, 2012

Somebody woke up with some out of control hair from his nap.

True Story.

Rachel sent me this picture.  I may or may not have have lashed out a time or two to my loved ones in moments of extreme hunger....

5 Mile Run

Saturday, February 4, 2012

I ran a 5 mile race with my friend Natalie this morning and we ROCKED it!!  Finished in 57 minutes!  This is just one more baby step toward our 1/2 marathon.  It was sooo cold because the race was next to Lake Overholser but once we got going, and out of the wind, it actually felt pretty nice.


Friday, February 3, 2012

I went to eat tonight with my parent's at a new Chinese restaurant (that was really good!) but when I was looking around the buffet I saw this "salad" with baby octopi in it!!  Yuck!  Who eats that stuff?!

I'm Stuck!

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Noah was screaming after his nap today because in an apparent escape attempt he managed to get his leg stuck in his crib and couldn't get it out. 

Stripping Sleeper

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Poor Mackenzie is so hot natured like Jason but she also loves her fancy PJ's.  It cracks me up every time we see her like this.  She gets hot and unbuttons her PJ's!

Beautiful Weather

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

The weather has been soooo pretty the last few days!!  I was out in shorts and a t-shrit today and if felt great.  This is my kind of winter.

Out Of Control Laundry

Monday, January 30, 2012

I think I need to catch up on some laundry.  There really is a hamper under there somewhere...  I can't wait till the girls are old enough to do their own laundry!

Nose Picker

I love my big sister.  And I love to pick my nose.
