Fire in the hole!

Our favorite entertainment these days is our popcorn popper. All the kids immediately stop what they are doing when they hear it come on, climb up on the counter and yell "Fire in the hole" when it lands in the bowl. Oh the joy!

Movie night

We got a wild hair to have dinner in our play room while watching a movie. We made a serious batch of nachos (don't worry I didn't forget about a vegetable) and had a fun picnic! CJ was a loose cannon during the movie & dinner, but we still enjoyed ourselves.

My sis and her husband are in town for the weekend so we enjoyed a stroll on the greenbelt. All the girls loved to chase the geese and watch them fly away. They thought it was hilarious!

Tea party!

What a better time to have a tea party then in December?!? My sis-in-law's sister was getting married so we threw her a smashing tea bridal shower. It was such a fun idea! We served curry chicken tea sandwiches, lemon cookies, almond cookies, baklava, mini quiches, mini cupcakes, petit fours, fresh fruit & dip, cranberry hot tea, & 2 different herbal teas. Of course I was put in charge of making the petiti fours (PF's for short...inside joke) & mini cupcakes. It was a fun to be a little girly and just drink something from a tea cup! As a thank you for throwing the shower, Libby gave us each our own tea cup and saucer. Thanks Libby!

Temple Square


While we were down in Salt Lake for Thanksgiving, we were able to go to Temple Square with the whole family and see the lights. It was very cold, but the kids still loved looking at all they had! It's fun to visit the same places that I went to when I was little and share it with your own children.

M&M's birthday celebration!

So back in November (yes, I know it's February!) we were down at Snowbird, UT for the week of Thanksgiving. Lucky for M&M, her birthday falls within that week almost every year and this year it was on Thanksgiving day. So she got to celebrate with a bunch of family. Her cousin E-man also celebrated with her (he was turning 3) so we had a festive day. Since we normally have a birthday meal M&M can pick out,? we decided to make it breakfast since the thanksgiving meal was later in the day. We had crepes filled with fruit & whip cream, broccoli/cheese/sausage muffins, and orange juice. Yum!!
Before her birthday we asked her what she wanted to do on her special day. She wrote out a list.
Great list if you ask me :)
Happy birthday to me sweet 7 year old!
