We found this recipe a few weeks ago in the latest issue of Family Fun and have already made it a couple of times. I keep forgetting to buy fluff, so I've been melting marshmallow's rice krispy treat style with a little bit of butter. They end up slightly chewy and I think better than the fluff!
I saw this recipe on the Food Network and it was super yummy. Even Brian, who doesn't eat brocolli or cauliflower, liked it! It's like a cauliflowerly mac and cheese. I used mozzarella instead of gruyere and would use less red pepper flakes next time. It was quite spicy!
Very impromptu last night before bed, I asked Brian to try and take a picture of Timothy hugging or kissing his baby sister. These pictures were the result :) Not great, but you'll find Timothy doing this about a hundred times a day! I think we'll try again because I know they could be super cute. This will also serve as my "29 week" picture. I commented on some other friends prego pictures and had to admit I didn't have any of myself up anywhere. Some people love to be pregnant and love the way they look. The 2 times I've been pregnant I just feel awkward and though I love the result, I don't feel much need to record the journey. Maybe I'll regret that someday. So here's my attempt for at least this week :)
This year, we decided to cut back on Christmas gifts to one another. We're adding another story onto our house and we get a gift that is very precious to us, we have our ultrasound scheduled for this Thursday. We couldn't ask for a better gift than seeing our little one <3
So, just for fun, tell us if you're thinking pink or blue and I'll try to post as soon as possible the result!
Timothy, Tyler & Kyanna made Gingerbread houses (or in our case, graham cracker houses), it was lots of fun! Once I said, "it's okay if you eat some of the candy" that's all Timothy would do! Needless to say, his house lacks decoration!
Christmas tree shopping attempt #1. Timothy was so sound asleep that Brian carried around the whole lot like this, and he never woke up! I just couldn't pick out a tree without him....so we came back the next day for attempt #2!
What is Timmy doing, you ask? Fishing. Didn't you know all you need to fish in a Christmas tree patch is a long piece of grass and a little imagination? :)
(So glad you waited until I was awake for this Mom!) LOL
We found it! The perfect tree!
"I'll carry the tree!"
Peek-a-boo, I see you!
Christmas tree shopping is hardwork! Wearing Daddy's hat to keep the son out of his eyes, Timothy was fast asleep!
Munching on cookies and drinking hot chocolate. Timothy's fishing a marshmallow out of his drink in this pic!
Yea! The tree is up and decorated! For the past 2 years, Timothy has had this fascination with Nutcrackers. He loves them! Ours are all just decorative, if anyone knows where I can find a real one, let me know :)
We got our first real snowfall and of course, had to build a snowman! Timothy has been talking about making one for months. He's learning a few Christmas songs and told me that our song needed a "button nose," like Frosty. We compromised with a carrot ;)
While baking cookies, Timothy decided to entertain himself! Let me tell you, these spice containers proved hours of fun!
