2017 Week 2

The kids were back to school for a short 3 days this week
before we had our first snow day of the season.
The kids loved it.
We usually stay home on snow days, but C has a music class that wasn't cancelled,
so out and about we went!
Music, library, and swimming,
made for a great snow day. 

This week the kids have Friday off 
and I have to register my baby for preschool!!! 
How in the world is he old enough for that??

Sunday - Roasted salmon with brussels, mashed potatoes, and fruit.
Monday - Creamy tortellini with sweet potato and spinach, fruit and a green salad.

Wednesday - Lime shrimp dragon noodles, with a cucumber salad and fruit.
Thursday - Tortilla soup in the slow cooker with all the toppings. 
Friday - Homemade pizza.
Saturday - Trying Blue Apron tonight!

2017 Week 1

 We had such a fun New Year's Eve,
ringing it in with great friends.
The kids were troopers and partied until midnight!
Then we got together with our same friends and
ran a 5k in the morning.
Even the kids hoofed it, with our big guy setting his own PR!
Then brunch, of course.
The day ended watching the Broncos finally win a game, whoop whoop!
It was a very fun Christmas break for the kids and now they are headed back to school.

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Chili at a friend's house for the game.
Monday - Dinner out for me, dad's on duty for home.
Tuesday - Hoppin' Johns, finally. If we eat it in the first week, it's still good luck for the year, right? Served with sauteed collard greens and cornbread.
Wednesday - Spaghetti with meatballs and zucchini noodles.
Thursday - Shrimp fajitas with guac, salsa and rice and beans.
Friday - Homemade pizza night.
Saturday - Leftovers

2016 Week 51

Our sweet third born turns three today!
He is obsessed with the Cars characters, 
 so it only made sense that Lighting McQueen and Mater show up on his cake!
It's also the first day of winter break,
so the kids and I are taking full advantage of our free time.
Playing with new toys, staying in jammies, and eating sprinkle pancakes.

Happy birthday sweet boy!

Monday - Birthday dinner! Homemade mac and cheese and roasted veg, and cake of course!

Friday - Easy pizza night.
Saturday - Christmas Eve dinner with my family. We're making roast beef, winter squash lasagna, smashed potatoes, arugula salad, and garlicky peas. And a yule log!

2016 Week 50

Week 50?
Wow, as usual this year has flown by!
This time of year especially.
These last few weeks of the year are so very fun,
but go by in a blink.
I'm resolving to enjoy the time and not think of what I need to do next.
To witness the small moments between our family.
Like when a little asks a big for help walking in the snow. 💗

Monday - Roast chicken with veggies.
Tuesday -  Dinner out for me, tacos for the kids and Scott.
