Happy first birthday Jacob!

My nephew across the continent, just turned one, and we have yet to meet this little guy. Hopefully my sister in law will send me some more photos, but here’s the one I got today:)


Ghost lovers

Aka, playing with our new camera a year ago. Browsing through my computer files, is bringing up some interesting stuff! ha ha!


Had a nice afternoon with my friend Tina

We just chatted while the boys ran wild. Isaac always has a great time playing with Luke and Ethan. They were being so quiet, and I discovered them in a bedroom hunkered over Operation Shrek, lol.

Xander turns into a shy guy, from his usual LOUD self, and checks out Jack cautiously.

Its that time of year again: Diet and exercise on my mind.

We were super stressed with the move and the foster parenting stuff, and I lost site of my healthy eating and exercise. The idea of cooking was just another stress I couldn’t handle, and we went out to eat a lot! Wooops, I gained back my 15 pounds lost, and its time to get back on track!

I’ve somehow lost my blog about this book, but Superfoods RX is still one of my favorite books on healthy eating. I loaded up my fridge with a ton of fruits and veggies, and I’m eating right again.

Yesterday, for example, I had 1/2 cup cottage cheese and an orange for breakfast, a super salad for lunch (lettuce, spinach, carrots, tomato, red pepper, red cabbage, chickpeas, beets and Italian dressing), and lentil soup and roasted cauliflower for dinner. Today, I made homemade hummus and we’re having turkey and brown rice for dinner.

The exercise is calling, but I haven’t answered yet;)
