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!

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Dinner with friends after the Bronco game, clam chowder and lobster bisque.
Monday - Birthday dinner! Homemade mac and cheese and roasted veg, and cake of course!
Tuesday - Leftovers.
Wednesday - Dinner out with friends.
Thursday - Kitchen sink quesadillas. 
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. 💗

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Dinner out with my dad.
Monday - Roast chicken with veggies.
Tuesday -  Dinner out for me, tacos for the kids and Scott.
Wednesday - Dinner out before riding the Santa train! Shhh, it's a secret!
Thursday - Meatballs with zucchini noodles and marinara.
Friday - Pizza for kids with a sitter, Scott and I will eat out at his company holiday party.
Saturday - Chili and cornbread with a side salad.
