Harper Is ONE!!!!!!!!

So we made it a year! She is one of the happiest babies out there. She is just starting to pull up on everything and everyone. So we are just waiting on the time she gets brave enough to take that first step. Here are a few of the pictures from last night. She had a lot of fun eating her favorite dinner pasta salad and having chocolate cake! So glad grandma helped cleaning up as I took baby and she took High Chair duty! THanks again to everyone who remembered Harper on her special day.

We love you Harper baby and are so glad you came to our family.......


I can't find the picture of the other kids but when I do I will add it. This is what Harper was  CANDY CORN!

Hyde's Brithday

Dear Hyde,

You are one wild and exciting kid. I am so glad I get to be your mom. Everyday you teach me something new. Wow your 3! You are a great big brother to Harper. You are so gentle and kind to her. And just out of the blue will NEED to give her a kiss. I love and hate that you will run out of nursery to give us just one more hug. You are always so willing to help I hope this stays with you as you grow. You will be the first to run and get me the last laundry basket or to help empty the dishwasher. I forget you are only 3. As most of the time when we ask how old you are you will say 5 or 6. My favorite thing you say right now is when we are going to the pool he says. "Ah lets go to the pooooooo.!"  I think by the time you are older you will never really know your given name as you answer to Hyde, Bryson, Duk Duk, Bubba's, Dude. Whatever you go by know we love having you here as part of our family.

Love, Mom

a pillow cookie

First make your favorite Brownie... Mine come in a box. Let them cool.

Then make your favorite Chocolate chip cookie dough. If you want this also could be store bought. I made mine. Scoop out  a medium size scoop of dough. Ruffly its 2tbl spoons. then squish flat and place brownie piece about the size of a quarter in the middle of dough circle.
( I like to put the crispier side or top of the brownie side down.)
Then bring sides of dough up over brownie and roll into a ball and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 mins. the cookies will have a puffy middle. aka where the brownie is. ENJOY!

Brody's Birthday!

Today was Brody's Birthday!

So as part of this yearly update I figure I will also fill you in on everything Brody...

First off he is a great, funny,crazy, energetic, wild, loving, caring, gentle when he wants to be little boy. We are so happy to have you in our family Brody. You are the first and most of the time the only person to get your little sister to laugh or smile and the little caterpillar song you learned in preschool and came home to sing to her is NOW her FAVORITE song over any other. You can bet up on your brother one min and the very next min be his best friend. I love to hear you and your siblings in playing and laughing together you have a great laugh and a huge smile. You are so smart. Out of all your friends in preschool you where the only one who didn't need summer school. You have come so far. You are so brave. I know this last year has been full of new and sometimes scary things. We are so happy that when you got sick that now after blessings and working with dr's we can finally see an end. At our last dr's appointment he said you looked awesome and that if you keep it up and don't have a relapse we can stop seeing him. WOOHOO!!!! You are learning how to swim and love the water. At times I think you are a walking TV.. some days I think I am living with a walking advertisement for the local grocery store or a shoe company. You are so funny and in such a innocent way. Like the other day before getting in the shower you where sitting on the toilet and dad asked you what you were doing you go .... Oh well I wanted to poop but my butt wont let me.

Brody we love you so much and are so happy to have you as part of our family. I can't wait to see what kind of person you will be.
Happy Birthday! My BiG 5 year old... you are ALL BOY for sure...

ok ok

So I didnt see that people actually read our blog. hahaha

First things first Chubby Bunny is a game you play with marshmallows. Each person has to place a marshmallow in there mouth and say chubby bunny and then not  chew or swallow that until you have gone through everyone else and you add another marshmallow until you have 5 OR   10 in your mouth. The hardest part is watching everyone and not laughing... as that moves things around and this is why you need bowls...

And now cakepops as fun as they are are not my idea. she is so creative.. but basically you make your favorite cake let it cool mash it into tiny pieces then put about 2 cups or one can of frosting and mash it all together then roll into balls and freeze for 15mins. then dip into chocolate. so yummy.

So because the kids birthdays are in the middle of summer we were able to celebrate with there school friends this last Friday. And I had seen this great idea so I gave it a try the reds are (spiderman that turned into just spiders on the red ) that is what Brody wanted and Riley just wanted pink. They were so easy to make and when done soooooooo yummy.
