Home Cookin'

About a week ago I felt so proud of myself. I made breakfast and dinner from scratch.
For breakfast we had blueberry muffins...
They were a hit! We've had them a few more times since.
My favorite thing to do for blueberry muffins, right before they go in the oven, add sugar to the top of each muffin. Gently press it into the batter (just barely). I cooks up so yummy & gives you that little extra sweetness.
For dinner I made a turkey pot pie! Delicious!
I must confess the crust wasn't from scratch. It's pillsbury. But all the insides wear even the chicken broth! Go Team! Things like this don't last long in my house.
Unforturately, since then we've had a lot of chicken nuggets and mac-n-cheese.
oh well, enjoy it while you can!

Like Daddy

Madi loves Carson. I think part of it has to do with the fact that she sees me all the time. (or the snacks and treats he sneaks her when I'm not looking) So when he's awake or just gets home, she follows him all over the place. She always tries to do what he's doing.

(yes, that is Carson's tooth brush in her mouth)

Few pics for the grandparents

Here are some pictures of Madi. These were all taken in february.

I believe this was Valentines Day.

I sure do love when she lets me put her hair in piggies!

That's right the weather here has been great! we've been in shorts and summer dresses for a while now.

Just woke up from a nap & was hungry. This is the side of Madi only I usually see.

Swim Diapers...

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything. My arm is better now. I have full range of motion. It's still healing on its own. I can still feel the break on occasion, when I hold Madi in that arm. Other than that things are good. The reason for the delay on posting is that I am now watching 2 boys during the day. My life has suddenly gotten very busy.
Anyway, back to this post...

When we got stranded in Flagstaff on the way home from Utah, we stayed at a hotel with a pool. None of us brought swimming clothes, but we weren't going to miss out on this opportunity. So I wore shorts and a t-shirt, Carson wore shorts & Madi wore a diaper with bloomers and a t-shirt. Mind you we didn't have a swim diaper... just a regular diaper...

Can you say Ba-dunk-a-dunk!
