Well, the holidays have come and gone. And, what a special time we had this year. We were honored to celebrate with our friends and family. I hope everyone had a wonderful time. The boys LOVED the gifts from us, their friends, their Meemo, Uncle Matt and Santa! Unfortunately, the elves made a little mistake with the 7 year old's skates. They are just ever so slightly too small. :( So, after an e-mail from me, they have agreed to allow Hamilton Skate Place to replace them along with an afternoon of skating to say sorry!

So, what is in store for us this coming year? We are all trying to eat better. We are trying to cut out HFCS, artificial ingredients, processed flour...So, wish us luck. An Earth Fare store just opened up in our area, and I LOVE it! It makes this so much easier! I will be posting some recipes and ideas that work for us. I am going to try baking with whole wheat flour soon...we'll see how that goes.

Well, just wanted to make an appearance. Thanks to those who might be reading....still no followers. :(

Locked out!

I went outside to get Christmas decorations out of the garage. The two year old came with me...While getting the boxes, I heard the sound of the door closing and the lock locking! I went to the door, asked the little booger to open the door. He told me to do it and started crying! Needless to say, I couldn't do it!!!!! I told him to go upstairs and get his big brother. He said o.k. But, who knows what he was really doing or where he was really going. I had no idea!!!! A 7 year old upstairs and a 2 year old free in the house! My imagination was racing! What would I find when I finally got in the house? I screamed, yelled and banged on the door for the 7 year old to let me in! Finally...after what felt like forever (probably really like 10 minutes), I was in! AAAAHHHHH! But now, the decorations are up, the kids didn't destroy the house like I imagined in the 10 minutes I was in the garage! So, life is good!
