a day in pictures

 on saturday, i arrived home from youth conference at about 11 and was picked up at the dock to take our first trip in dad's new boat. g-man was a great sport, and only cried when ryne jumped in the water :) After boating, we stopped by the parade, and took advantage of the endless amounts of candy tossed at our feet.  
so glad summer is here.

one year down

how did this happen that i have a one-year-old living in my house?

messes have become messier, bathtime has become comical (he tried to eat the bubbles tonight) and eating has turned into an never-ending buffet (this little man can eat!)

tomorrow is his birthday, and we plan on celebrating like crazy people. 
wish us luck..lots to do!

so behind....

i can't believe it's been over two weeks since my last post.  i've been enjoying my summer way too much!

here is another recipe from my mom's cookbook.

1 ¼ cups orange juice
3 inches sliced banana
2 scoops nonfat frozen yogurt
2-3 cups strawberries
1 cup ice

Combine all in blender. Enjoy! 

And I had to share a picture of our little helper...
He loved picking out herbs in his red wagon.

graham's first easter

while on a girls trip to chicago last week, i picked up this little chicken for g's basket.
it reminded me of my own little chicken a few months back...
unfortunately, this was grahams reaction when he saw his new friend (see left)

 it's a good thing he liked his peeps!

french velvet

this has got to be the favorite for all the men in the household...
and the best part is? it's so easy to make, and tastes delicious.

French Velvet

½ cup butter
¾ cup sugar
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (melt in microwave)
2 eggs
1 cup whipping cream (whipped)
1-9" pie shell

Cream butter and sugar, stir in melted chocolate.  Add 1 egg and beat for 5 minutes.  Add 2nd egg and beat for 5 minutes.  Fold whipping cream into chocolate mixture and place in pie shell.  Chill for 2 hours.  (Todd likes graham cracker crust).
