Just before we went “home for the holidays” Tim cut the lawn for the first time. It grew in so well…hard to believe it was just seed and not sod.
So…When we got home from our trip the kids played outside ALL day long. From like 9am to 5pm or so. Stopping only to eat and get water. This is as a result of all that play. Mara didn’t get her nap…and so when she came in upset with Ezra…I told her to sit right there until I could clean her feet off. Before I knew it she was fast asleep. Ezra is the background wondering why Mara did not come back out to play.
Ezra loves to color boxes…This is his latest piece of art… a shark. He traced his toy shark then colored it in. I said, “Ezra your box has got to go in the trash now but mommy took a picture of it.” I would keep them all but then I wouldn’t be able to find my way around the house with all of his artwork. But at least he got this picture 🙂
Sweet Ella is FULL of energy! She crawls all around the house, pulls her self up to walk along the couch, takes stuff out of the dishwasher as I am loading…and anything else you can imagine! They grow so fast!
Now, this is cause I LOVE my hunny 🙂 He now works mostly from home. At the office he would enjoy a good lunch at whatever Restaurant with his buddies…now it’s Peanut butter and jelly or Mac n’ cheese. I wanted him to feel like we can have good lunches at home too…so I made him this yummy salad. Yesterday I mad a Poppy Seed Spinach Salad (It seems like all I make is cookies huh?) and I had left over sugared almonds and Poppy seed vinaigrette dressing. So I Put tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, crasins, sugared Almonds, Swiss cheese, and Grilled Chicken all on a bed of Romain lettuce JUST for him….I made me one too…I didn’t want to be jealous of his 🙂 I used the poppy seed dressing and it was so good! He loved it too…
Well, I got some cleaning to do…I’m painting tonight…I’ll post pictures soon 🙂
