I need to make a better effort updating on here..as I've had some "followers" comment that they want to see more...so I'm gonna try to at least update once a week. Hopefully I can commit to that. Life has been a bit crazy the last few weeks, but we're getting into a new routine and it should help :)

..until next time :)

*Caleb's 1st Haircut*

*Playing In The Grass*

We had new grass put down this year (for those of you who have been to my house know that we had NO grass in our backyard when we bought our house)
The kids are having fun helping dad rake up the left overs after he cut it for the first time. :)

*Baby #3*

For those of you who don't know yet....We're having a new baby!!!!
Due date is November 18th...making me 14.5 weeks at this point.
We're all very excited, and leaving it that way the entire time as this will be a surprise baby. Not finding out the gender.

So start leaving your guesses and we'll see who ends up being right :)

*Our Baby Turns 3*

Before you have kids, everyone tells you that once they're born to cherish every moment bc if you blink...time will have flown by. And -- as Breanna celebrated her 3rd birthday this weekend, I can totally agree now.

It feels like yesterday that I was bringing this tiny little precious baby home from the hospital, and 3 years later to the day...she's getting her first bike with training wheels. It was a bittersweet moment for me. 3 years marks the "preschool stage" and lets go of any "toddler" that was left. She is growing into such a little character and I am so proud of the 3 year old she has become.

Even tho I am saying goodbye to my baby...I am also excited for what's to come. B is quite the princess ! I am so blessed to have her in my life.

*Happy birthday B*

*Grilled Bruschetta Chicken*


*4 small boneless skinless chicken Breasts
*1/4 cup Kraft sundried tomato dressing, divided in half
*1 tomato finely chopped
*1/2 cup grated cheese
*1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
**1/2 Onion chopped
**2 tbsp fresh chopped garlic

**I substituted the Basil for Tarragon (simply bc I grabbed the wrong package in the grocery store...oops)

*NOTE*- This recipe is from the Kraft Canada website. It calls for this to be grilled on a bbq...but we don't have one so I just used my skillets on the stove. Did the job just fine!!

*Let pans heat up.

*Place Chicken Breasts in a large container with a lid, or ziploc bag. Add half of the dressing to the container and shake to coat the chicken. It says to Refrigerate for 10 minutes before placing on grill..but I didn't do that.

*Add chicken to grill and let cook for 6 minutes.

*While that is cooking, Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl.

*Turn chicken over with cooked side up, top with tomato mixture and grill for 8 minutes or until Chicken is fully cooked through.

I served with a tossed Garden Salad and garlic bread. It was a success!

*New Recipe Adventure*

I've decided lately that we need some new things to try food wise that are appealing to our palates, but also nutritional enough to meet the needs of my growing toddlers.
I find (and I know so many people are the exact same) that I get into a funk some times with cooking and feel like we eat the same things over and over again week after week .

I'm determined to find new things to eat, and with that have decided that if I like something...I'll share it with you on here to try too. I'll make it, take a pic and post the ingredients. my goal is to at least try something new once a week, or add something new to what we've been eating.

So, here's to this new adventure ...wish me luck and enjoy reading about my experiences..and maybe even failures in the kitchen!

*Trail Walk Part 2*- March Break

*Trail Walk Part 1*- March Break

Here are a few pictures from our walk along the river trail this past week.


March 20 2010 - we went to the park for a saturday play date with Krista, Steve and Kaiden. The weather wasn't very nice (overcast, and a few snow flurries) but we still had fun!

*Kids Got A Wagon*

This year I decided that we'd get a wagon. It's easier pulling them around, and with my doing daycare as well....there is room for all 3 kids together in this wagon. I got it for a great price, and it is a great ride for the kids!! We will have lots of fun with this!

*Rain Boots*

Our park was more like a swamp then anything else -- so Caleb needed rain boots to keep his feet dry. .

I thought these ones were pretty cute...Fire fighter boots :)

*Playing At The Park*

This was Caleb's first time at the park walking around (March 17th 2010)

*Apple Sauce Mess*

Caleb loves feeding himself his apple sauce at dinner. He got a bit carried away last night.

*Playdate at the park*

Yesterday we had a play date with my friend Amelia and her two kids. It was so nice that we took the kids to the park. I thought it would be wet..but I never thought some spots would totally fill the kids boots up with water. Needless to say the girls had a blast splashing in the puddles with their rain boots on .
