Cute Girls

Here are just a few pictures that I think are cute and wanted to share. Here is Eva eating ribs!

I didn't think she would like them because she can be a picky eater but I guess I was wrong.

Eva has also been trying to give up naps lately. She is 3 so I feel like I have had a good run but when I let her stay up this is what tends to happen.

I don't think there is a better sight then one of a sleeping child.

And I can't forget about little Layla. K so maybe there is something better than the sight of a sleeping child.....if there is it would be a fat baby with no shirt on. Hmmmm it's a close one.

They Grow Up Too Fast

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And I always leave my fingerprints
on furniture and walls.
But every day I'm growing-
I'll be grown up someday
And all those tiny hand prints
Will surely fade away.
So here's a final hand print
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small.

Another Hit!

Well Aunt Rachel you are two for two now. The first book you got Eva (Pinkalicious) was such a good book and we both enjoyed reading it often. Now this cook book is a hit too! I mean what little girl wouldn't love a Princess recipe book? All the meals have fun Disney themed names like "Fairy Godmother Wands" for the french toast sticks etc. I thought I would share with all of you some of the things we have made.
First is Castle Calzones ( as in the Beast's Castle)
It is pizza dough folded over with ham, cheese and veggies cooked into it. It was pretty good and a really good kid and husband friendly meal.

Next and one of me and Eva's favorites is the Get Your Work Done Smoothies. (picture is of Cinderella's Stepmother)

I think Eva mostly liked using the blender.

But the smoothies tasted really good too. It had bananas, strawberries, blackberries, vanilla yogurt and milk. A really good, healthy snack.

Last is the I'm Soooo Sleepy Soup. (with a picture of Sleepy from Snow White)

It is Chicken noodle soup made with elbow macaroni. It has the usual chicken and veggies but it is easy to make and other hit with Greg and the girls.

So thank you Aunt Rachel for such a fun cook book. Eva and I are having lots of fun making all these Disney themed meals. My goal this week is to make the Sandy Scoops (sandy as in a sandy beach like in little Mermaid, cute right?) It's cinnamon tortillas with applesauce as dip. Sounds yummy to me. :)
