So, I haven’t been very good at posting lately except for the weekly scavenger hunt. I was going to post a rant about IBS, PVC, GERD and all the other acronyms that have decided to plague me. And although I love to listen to and laugh at a good rant I wasn’t so sure everyone else did. So, in lieu of my rant here are some photos from this past week.
On Saturday I ventured north to go to a baby shower for my SIL Shanna. Yes—they are having a baby boy! We were all so surprised and excited to find out they were expecting and even though Shanna said no shower we decided to spoil her anyway.
Shanna looks barely pregnant and so cute. Jake tries to hide those smiles, but I knew when he put on the baby blue baby backpack that he just might be a little tiny bit excited about this new little baby coming to rock his world. Congratulations—can’t wait to meet my new little nephew.
On Monday we awoke to a glorious snowy President’s Day and two little boys without any school to entertain them for the day. After a late breakfast we loaded all the sleds and snow clothes into the car and headed over the mountain to Nora’s cabin. We spent the day sledding down the biggest sled run ever, eating treats, and just relaxing. It was a fabulous day and might need a repeat before all the snow melts.
After a few days away from home we spent Tuesday doing laundry and hanging out at home. Wesley has been into everything lately and been nicknamed the whirling dervish—he is very fast and quiet. Anyway due to his new obsession with climbing on things he needs lots of supervised playtime or the house looks like a tornado hit it. Miles thought he would like the beads and so we spent a good part of the morning stacking beads.
Since discovering I am gluten intolerant I’ve had a hard time finding new and yummy recipes so this week I decided to some new recipes from the Gluten Free Goddess. Here is my favorite—stuffed peppers. So tasty, so good, and so full of flavor. Miles was not a fan, but Wes liked the filling and Ian asked for seconds!
Today Miles and I spent the morning making cupcakes for the Blue & Gold banquet. Miles is a great helper, but when I went to give him a sample he ate the frosting handed me the cake and said, “I don’t like this part, it is yucky.” (no, it wasn’t gluten free, just the regular good gooey cake mix) What child of mine doesn’t like cake? Now I do love frosting, but it is about the combination of cake and frosting. Maybe his taste buds will figure it out as he gets older.
