Weaverville trip

This past weekend we took a trip up to Weaverville to visit Davids parents. Davids mom Barbara just had back surgery about 2 weeks ago, so Bekah came up as well. It was nice to just hang out and have auntie Bekah there to follow Madison around doing whatever she wanted to do. Barbara is doing good with her recovery, although i do think she should be taking it more easy, but she says shes feeling great.

While we were up there we took a trip out to the lake where there was still lots of snow to play in. Madison's first real time playing in the snow besides the other day where it only snowed a inch or two. She had a blast playing on David and Bekahs old sled from when they were a kid. Jim brought out all the toys including the snowmobiles! They are so much fun. I got up to 50mph! Great memories... :)

Recipe motivation

Most of you know that I LOVE to cook. My friend Anna has this amazing blog about housekeeping, organization, and recipes. On todays blog it is all about meal planning and how to get organized with your recipes that you like to make. So tonight I got David to sit down with me and pick out what I was going to make for dinner for the next two week. Then we both got inspired to organize my cute recipe book I bought from Costco about a year ago! This whole time I have just been printing out recipes and throwing them into the side pocket. My goal has always been to type out the ones I love and print them on the cute paper this bider came with. So my amazing husband that he is helped me by creating a template for all my favored recipes! I am so proud of what we came up with, and no I couldn't have done this with out his help! I am super excited about this and I plan to keep posting recipes that I love, and hope you will enjoy making them as well.

Thanks Anna for the encouragement. It is going to be so much fun having this all organized now! This is also fun hang out time with my hubby. :) Everyone should check out her site and get motivated!

At the bottom there is a recipe for Chicken Pecan! It is AMAZING. I have attached a JPEG for those that want to print this out and add to your recipe binder, or e-mail me for a PDF version if you would like. :) Enjoy!

Let there be snow!

Today was a very exciting day, it snowed it snowed!!!!!!!!! This was Madison first time being in the snow, so we were pretty excited to see little white flakes falling from the sky. I think I was a bit more excited to see the snow than Madison was though! These pictures were taken before the snow started to really stick at our house. Later on in the day we went to grandma's where there was even more snow on the ground and she was able to make snowballs and throw them into the pool. I love seeing snow on the ground, it just makes everything so beautiful and peaceful.

Today I also took Mackenzie to the Dr. for her 10 week check up. She weighed in at 13 lbs, and 23 1/2 inches long. She is in the 95%! I do know how to make chubby babies I guess. All in all it was a good day :)

It's been awhile

I can't believe how long it has been since my last blog! I have been thinking about blogging again for awhile but I just seem to forget about or don't make the time to actually do it! I'm not the best writer, but it is nice to look back on the past.

So tonight I have decided to take a little break from Facebook to make more time for my family. I always find myself on the computer (facebook) just sitting there doing nothing! I would love to start doing more projects with Madison and just have more interactive play time. That is my goal! I would love to start posting some recipes that I have found to be amazing as well! Since cooking is one of my passions. I will also have pictures on here to brag about how cute my kids are! Anyways, hope you will become a follower :)

Here are some pictures from today minus the one of Taylor and Mackenzie. Today Kenzie turned 10 weeks old! Oh how she is growing so fast.
