More scrapbooking!

After my last post it got me thinking of the scrapbook pages I did of Lily and Addisyn when they were babies. Lily was probably around 1 month and Addisyn around 3 months. They were so cute and chubby! I hope as they grow up they will still be best buddies!


I finally managed to get some scrapbooking done on Sunday. I'm trying to get caught up on my pages before the holidays. I only got two done but it's a start! The first one is of the girls at Frontier City when we were at Lifestock. The second is of Lily and her sweet friend Addisyn being silly. They have been best buds since Lily was born. They are about 3 month apart. I still remember when they were just babies laying on the floor together. They look so grown up in those pictures.

Baking Day Update

This was really fun, I'm going to start trying to do this more often. It's actually not that hard to make multiple things at once. I got everything made that I planned except the blueberry muffins. I'll save those for Sunday since I have to work tomorrow and Saturday.

strawberry breakfast muffins
My girls thought they were really good.
(Lily will eat anything that's pink!)

the scones were probably the hardest since I've
never tried scones before. They were a little
messy but I think turned out pretty good.
(I haven't tried them yet!)

Veggie soup I added some beans for some protein

I'm freezing the soup in Tupperware. I froze half
and saved half so we could eat it this week.

I had a pineapple I needed to cut up.

Storing it in a Ziploc. We'll eat this tomorrow
with our omelets.

I'm taking this Jello/fruit thing(I don't have a name for it!)
to family birthday's tonight.

This is everything I got accomplished. The
girl's had pancakes for lunch!

I'm going to freeze the muffins, scones, and pancakes.
What's the best way to package them so they stay fresh?
Any ideas?

The Bod Squad

My soon to be sister in-law Abbi has started a new blog called the bod squad which I am lucky enough to be part of. This is exactly what I've been needing to keep me accountable with my healthy eating as I try and lose the last 10 pounds. While we hope to achieve our goals through this blog it is also our hope to inspire and encourage others who are on this same journey as we are. Won't you please join us in this new little adventure.


Check out this blog for an amazing ministry called soles4souls. They are trying to reach a goal of 50,000 pairs of shoes in 50 days. You can donate $5 for two pairs of shoes for someone that is not as fortunate as we are.
