Recipes, recipes

I have slowed down in my Pinterest cooking craze of last month. Here are  several recipes that I highly recommend trying. No pictures, just the link to the recipe post.

  • lemon brown sugar chicken - Sooooo good.  I am making this tonight, hit for the whole family.  
  • broccoli salad - made for a church function, not much was left and what was I cleaned up while I was cleaning the kitchen later that night.  I decreased the mayo and subbed plain Greek yogurt.
  • 30 minute yeast rolls - made a bunch, 18 good sized rolls, but they were really good.
  • crescent roll-ups - super easy work-night dinner!
  • berry danish minis - these were a little time intense, but yummy.
What have you been making?

The Tulsa portion of our Christmas holiday included a trip to my elementary school playground, Nathan LOVES to go here.  All the equipment is newer, and so much cooler than I remember from my days there.   

Wade and Pops

Playgrounds bring the inner child out in everyone!

My sweet Wade's adorable little hand.
The following is a montage of Nathan's activity while at the playground this particular visit.  They has a bunch of little bikes housed in an enclosure.  He rode every single one and lined them up,

Sunday Randoms

I am playing catch-up on posting, so today is a mish-mash of things...

I picked up these amazing oreo cookies today.  

I wonder if the things my boys do are things that only boys do, or if girls do them too.  Wade is such a copy-cat right now, the more dangerous things especially.  Like putting a blanket over your face and walking without seeing where you are going.   

Monday is "jet-water" night.  The boys take a bath in the big tub, this particular night, 
Daddy was a little overzealous with the bubble bath.   

Nathan just looked at this picture and said, "That is too much bubbles, isn't it."

Our closet is a source of interest for the boys.  They will try to shut the other one in there, hide in there together with flash lights, try on our shoes, or hang on the clothing bars.  The other night, Trace and I were on the couch and I hear some commotion from the vicinity of our room, then hear Nathan say, "Mommy, we made a mess with the shoes!!"  

Knowing this would be good, I brought the camera.  They has pushed all but about two pairs onto the floor and were sitting on the little ledge.  They were as pleased as punch with themselves!

We were graced with snow last week that lasted less than a day, but definitely made it memorable for the boys.  Nathan was so excited about the prospect of eating some.  He woke up and said,"It's full!!"  Meaning the ground was covered.  We went outside immediately so he could have a taste.

After breakfast, we all bundled up and headed outside.  Wade was so layered, he could hardly move!

The Jeep did not drive too well in the snow.

W's first taste.

Poor Fungi, the dogs tried to herd him. 

I love this photograph!

Man down!!
