The Climber Strikes Again

I don't remember Tim ever pulling stunts like this. But if he did I probably would have freaked out. I am a much more "relaxed" mom with Noah.

Go Dog Go!

Tim was reading Go Dog Go to Noah! I'm sorry it's such a short video. My battery kept dying, and Tim wouldn't read anymore after I got a new battery.

Meatless Monday(last night)

HAHAHA! I forgot to post this yesterday.
Zucchini Slaw
1 tsp EVOO
2 Zucchinis(chopped)
1/4 med onion(chopped)
3 tbsp Italian salad dressing(I like Kraft)
parsley to taste
Heat EVOO in a saucepan. Cook Zucchini, and onion until tender. Mix in the dressing and parsley..cook until heated through. Served warm.
I served with a side of rice. But you could even serve this with some potatoes and meat(doesn't really work with meatless Monday though). I've heard it's also great as a topping for a hamburger.

Saturdays With Dad

Blaine, Tim and Noah built a snowman on Saturday. A very dirty one, but still a snowman. I love this picture the best, because Noah's sad face is so cute.

Tim was a big helper on Saturday, he helped Dad cut up hot dogs for the Kraft Dinner. Sounds pretty gross to me, but they love it.

Noah is a huge talker...he babbles on and on. But he's got a few big people words
  • garbage
  • puppy
  • sammy
  • kitty
  • mommy
  • daddy
  • foot
  • no(his fave)
  • banana
  • up
  • vacuum
  • owie
  • milk
  • truck
  • choo choo(train)
  • woof woof
  • baby
  • all done

I'm sure he's got a dozen more words, but I can't think of them. I will update as he shows me more.

I love springtime

We have been soaking up the sun for about a week now, and we've spent most of the days outside. Tim and Noah love driving their trucks around, and I've gotten tons of cleaning up done. I cannot wait until it's time to plant my garden. Last year Blaine got to do most of the work, and I got to eat all the veggies, this year is my turn.

Cupcakes, cookies and Easter eggs

Tim, his cousin Kinnon, and Blaine decorated Easter eggs, for the Easter bunny. One of my favorite things about Easter is decorating Easter eggs. Probably because I love Egg salad sandwiches, and it gives me an easy excuse to eat them for a week. And nope I don't get bored of them. Here's a picture of Tim colouring one of his eggs.

The finished product, left out for the Easter bunny. I heard she likes egg salad sandwiches too.

Easter cookies that Tim made with his Aunts and Grandma S.
