- 1 - Happy Friday! Can you BELIEVE we're about to be entering into Christmas week?!  This is such an incredibly exciting time of year! - 2 - Dessert of the Week My sister got the family a French Silk pie from Baker's Square (as you know that's my favorite pie), but shockingly no one at my parents' house ate it.  (?!?!?!)  So my mom brought it over to my house.  We ate it after bedtime over the course of a few days and it was absolutely delicious.  PLUS it was Christmas decorated - red … [Read more...]

Leaves, Nursing Robin, Icky Salad and other Saturday Laughs

      5. Classic.  Jumping in leaves with Daddy.  I was watching Cupcakes play in the leaves out my window and door as I was trying to get Tootsie Roll to sleep.  She was laughing and laughing.  It was so adorable! 4. CUPCAKES: "What do you think of my dinner? ME: "I think it'll be great!" CUPCAKES: "Okay.  It might be a little icky because it has salad in it." ME: "But salad is yummy!!" CUPCAKES: "Well I do not like that so it's a little bit yucky for me." 3. … [Read more...]

How to Make Incredible Snow Ice Cream

I have a very vague memory from my childhood of making snow ice cream with my mom.  I know that it was an awesome experience, but I can't remember (and neither can my mom) how to make it or what it tasted like. After three deep freezes, we here in Chi-town, were all kind of hoping the worst of the winter was over and we could start looking forward to spring.  NOPE.  It was like white-out conditions today!  The roads were horrible, and it took Hobbs and I twice as long to get home from our … [Read more...]

Broken Mommy and other Saturday Laughs

5.) Since Cupcakes has to be on a new schedule for daycare, she has had to go to bed earlier and wake up earlier.  So now she wakes up early EVEN ON DAYS WHEN WE CAN SLEEP IN!  We've learned that we can take out the blocks for her in her room and go back to sleep for a few minutes.  We love listening to her on the monitor talking to herself and her blocks. 4.) "Hi Goose!  Hi Goose!  Hi Goose!"  So many animals at the zoo, but this was her favorite... 3.) Hilarious sign at the zoo... … [Read more...]

Sunday Treat (on a Saturday)

I had a wonderful night with my fam last night.  We looked at some old black and white photos of my dad when he was little and his parents.  We all wanted to go out to eat, but the restaurant we picked was jammed and had an hour wait!  So we packed up and went to a little burger joint in my dad's old neck-of-the-woods.  We hadn't been there in forever. I got a hamburger and a pizza puff.  My dad had to drive me to a nearby gas station because their bathrooms were out of order.  My brother put … [Read more...]
