31 Days...Day 24

Day 31 is a picture of something you wish you could forget...last January when we had one sick little girl with double ear infection! It was miserable! She couldn't sleep unless she was laying on her daddy's chest and she cried and cried it hurt so bad. It was 2 nights of no sleep for any of us! Doesn't she just look so sad and sick in this picture??!!  Poor baby!

Sunday morning we woke up and Clay was holding Chloe and just looking outside and saw this coyote. Since he has been trying to get a shot at one over the last month or so he immediately put Chloe down and ran and got his gun. At 306 yards he shot it down right off our back deck!

31 Days...Day 19

Day 19 is a picture of yourself and a family member. I chose this one of Clay, Chloe and I with Gma at a nursing home BBQ potluck they had last summer because it is one picture that we have of all of us together! I love how Chloe has her little hand on Gma's shoulder. She loves going up to the nursing home and seeing Gma and I think all the old people really enjoy her too! It makes them smile which is what they need! Gma LOVES Chloe! My Grandma was never a huggy type person at least growing up I don't remember her really ever hugging us but now that her great granddaughter is here she loves the hugs...at least from Chloe anyways! Grandma has become Gma because it was too confusing to Chloe calling my mom Grandma and then having another Grandma in the family. The name has stuck and now we all call her Gma! Love you Gma!

31 Days...Day 17


Day 17 is a picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently...if we are talking pretty recently I can't really think of anything so I'm just going to throw this one out there....not having to buy diapers or pull-ups anymore!! Chloe was pretty well potty trained soon after she turned 2 but she was still wearing pull-ups at night until about a month ago. Now she is sleeping at night in her big girl panties and usually gets up once a night for me to take her potty. It's super nice especially since diapers/pull-ups are so expensive!

31 Days...Day 16

Day 16 is a picture of someone who inspires you. For me that would have to be my sister in law, Danita! She is the most caring, outgoing, creative and fun person I know! She thinks up and creates the most awesome things and always has the perfect gift for everyone! Not only am I inspired by all her awesome projects, but also by her wonderful cooking! She is a FABULOUS cook! Friday nights we switch off dinners with Luke and Danita and when it's their turn to cook Clay and I ALWAYS know it's going to be something super delish! I am so lucky to have such an awesome sister in law and will continue to be inspired by her! Love you Danita!

Sweet Heart Frames

Here is another fun Valentine's Day art project! I helped Chloe make Sweet Heart Frames for all the people she loves as a Valentine's present to them. She had so much fun with this project! First I glued the sticks together for her and let them dry a bit then I let her go at it! She loved using the glue - I think that was her favorite part! We would spread the glue along the sticks then she would put one conversation heart down and then eat one. Lay one, eat one is how she liked to do it;) Then after it dried we put a picture behind the frame, added a magnet and stuck it on the fridge! What a great kids gift to grandmas and grandpas for Valentine's Day!

Here she is eating one!

So excited!

Doing the glue!

TADA! Refrigerator magnet! Love it!

Sweet Heart Pops

I found this fun and EASY recipe out of the February "Family Fun" magazine under the Treat of the Month. I love how they turned out! Let me share how to make them...

You will need:
12 mini candy canes - thanks Marci!
6 (6-inch) paper lollipop sticks - I used plastic sticks which worked fine.
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
Sprinkles!

1. Heat oven to 235 degrees. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, arrange the candy canes as hearts and bake them for 10 minutes.
2. Slide the hearts, still on the parchment paper, onto a work surface. Quickly pinch each heart onto a lollipop stick.
3. In the microwave, melt together the chocolate chips and the oil in 10-second intervals, stirring between heatings. (I did 15 second intervals).
4. Spoon the chocolate mixture into the center of each heart, then top with sprinkles! Cool the pops before serving or wrapping them. *Makes 6 pops.
