Noah absolutely loves helping, especially with man stuff. This knob on Mackenzie's dresser has been broke and Jason hasn't got the screw to fix it yet but Noah was determined he was going to "help fix it" this afternoon . He is so sweet. I'm glad though Jason is teaching him this stuff early so he can really help later!

Apple Crisp Pizza

Saturday, October 27, 2012

I have been hankering for some delicious apple desserts and I found this one online this week. It's like an apple crisp but with a crust and made like a pizza so you can cut it up and pick it up and eat it. It was SO GOOD!

MDO Trick or Treating

Friday, October 26, 2012

They had a special MDO out today and the kids got to dress up and trick or treat around the Simmons Center. Noah thought it was about the best thing ever.

Wine and Palette

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Tonight we went to another Wine and Palette class. It's so fun!! I love painting something when I normal am awful at painting. And they always turn out so good. And it's fun to spend the evening hanging out with my mom and sister!

Blue Paint

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I had to drive to Lawton today to get some paint for the girls room. Noah has noticed how we are painting most of the rooms in the house. He has started insisting he wants a "blue room". He even picked out some paint swatches for us!

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Today was beautiful and we went to a new pumpkin patch. It was fun and had so much neat stuff for the kids to do.

Baby "Pallyn"

Friday, October 19, 2012

We went to visit Jason's family this weekend and Noah was in love with his baby cousin Fallyn (which comes out Pallyn when he says it, too cute). He wanted to hold her and feed her and love her the whole time.

New Running Kicks!

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Now that I am running ridiculous amounts of mileage each week it didn't take me long to blow through my "new" running shoes. You are supposed to replace them every 300-500 miles. Mine have 600+ (whoops!) Luckily my Nike app tracks this for me or I would have NO idea they had that many. I was torn between all black or the super flashy shoes. I went with super flashy!

Breakfast Grilled Cheese

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

This sandwich will change your life, make it ASAP. You butter 2 pieces of bread like a normal grilled cheese then mix a little softened cream cheese with a little powdered sugar. Spread on inside of bread and then put a layer of fruit between the cream cheese and grill. I like blueberries. It is SO GOOD!

Toby the SCOBY

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

I love Kombucha but it is crazy expensive, like $3 a bottle. It is super easy and ridiculously easy to make if you can get a SCOBY. A SCOBY is a symbiotic colony if bacteria and yeast. Sounds delicious doesn't it?! It basically ferments the tea. Our food coop was selling started packs that included the SCOBY and tea and sugar for the first batch. Then you just keep reusing the SCOBY and apparently it creates little baby SCOBY's! I felt like there was so much going on with this little guy he needed a name. Toby the SCOBY was suggested and I thought it was fantastic. Good luck Toby! I hope to have some delicious Kombucha in 7-10 days time!

Kate apparently thinks I got these blankets out for her.

Homemade Pop Tarts

Sunday, October 14, 2012

Jason wanted me to make him a chicken pot pie this afternoon so I doubled the crust for some Pop Tarts. Macy loves helping me roll out dough. And Noah loves eating dough so we make a great team. We made a couple s'more flavored and the rest peach or blueberry jam. They were delicious!

Mr. Blue Eyes

Saturday, October 13, 2012

I love this picture of Noah! He's so stinking cute!

Pumpkin Patch Day

Friday, October 12, 2012

Today I went with Mackenzie's class to a pumpkin patch in Norman. We ha so much fun! It was so nice to hang out just the two of us. We ended the day with a little girl time getting custard and shopping!


Thursday, October 11, 2012

I saw this on Facebook and had to repost it and tag my running buddies in it. It's so true!


Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Noah is such a helper. He loves to get in he middle of whatever you are doing and "help". It's so sweet. Today he was helping me get groceries. He was so good and I told him he could pick something out. The first words out of his mouth was "N&M'S"!! He loves them so much because his favorite person in the world "Tenz" loves them too. Sweet boy!

Steel Cut Oats

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

I finally go around to trying steel cut oats and I am in love! They are delicious AND I can make them overnight in my crockpot!

My "I'm Not Getting Ran Over Shirt"

Monday, October 8, 2012

Since our runs are usually pre-dawn from start to finish I have been trying to buy brighter colors, I tend to gravitate toward dark colors usually. I think this one will work!

Spirit of Survival 1/2 Marathon

Sunday, October 7, 2012

We ran a half marathon in Lawton this morning and did awesome! We didn't really have a goal time and it was freezing but we ended up killing our old time by about 6 minutes!! Final time was 2:06:10!

Big Boy Undies

Friday, October 5, 2012

Noah had been doing so well potty training! He loves his Buzz and Choo-Choo undies but only had a couple pairs. I told him if he didn't have any accidents all day I would get him some more of his favorite undies. He did great and I also got him some "Mouse" ones too. He had started to really like Mickey Mouse too. He was SOOOO excited when he saw them!

Family Pictures

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

Today we had family pictures made for the first time since Noah was a baby. I have only got to see a few so far but I LOVE them!

A Moment of Silence

Monday, October 1, 2012

I ate the last of my last jar of Justin's Chocolate Peanut Butter. It has been discontinued and is sold out everywhere. Such a sad day. I may or may not have hid the jar from my kids so I didn't have to share when I found out it was no longer being made. Whatever. RIP best chocolate peanut butter ever : (

Nap Buddy

Sunday, September 30, 2012

We didn't have church this evening which means we all got a great afternoon nap. Kate was my helper.

Happy 7th Birthday Riley!!

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Today we celebrated Riley's 7th birthday. They are a wild bunch!! Happy Birthday Riley Jo!!

Dog Food

Thursday, September 27, 2012

So while I was at work today and Jason was "watching" Noah, Noah somehow found a way to hide dog food ALL OVER the house. I'm not sure what was going through his mind, maybe he was hiding so the dogs woul have food later if we ran out? Who knows. But we found dog food under my pillow, in my closet, in Mackenzie's bed, under her bed, in the bathroom, in the bath run, and several other places. It was awesome.
