Back to school! Well, alright... Back to the kitchen table!
I must have chosen some good things these past two weeks, because wow! These guys LOVED Katy and the Big Snow (last week) and are enjoying The Snowy Day (finishing today). They are so funny these guys of mine. It has been very cloudy, yucky, and cold days... I honestly don't know when we saw the sun last. But they have wished for the big "S word" every day due to these stories. No, thank you.
My little gamers :)
On the days where they are just too cold to go out, they sit at the table and play a few rounds of Catan Junior while Austin naps. Love this so much! (thanks again, mom and dad!)
I've hired a Sous Chef!
Alex in the kitchen isn't big news, but this part is:
He wants to be a chef when he grows up. Oh, and have his own restaurant called the Orange Cafe. He will have a variety of orange-inspired (and infused) menu items such as "delicious sandwiches with orange slices in the middle and orange chicken (what we had for dinner last night).
He is so cute! He asks all kinds of things, too. Like, why he doesn't really like onions but the onion powder tastes good when we make something. And, whether or not we will be using the liquid measuring cup or the solids measuring cup. I love that kid.
Speaking of cooking and whatnot...
|Pregnant mama snack...Tomato, Guacamole, and Brown Rice Bread. It's actually really yummy!|
Over the summer, after trying out that Fast Metabolism Diet with my husband, I figured out that I have some sort of intolerance to gluten...or wheat...or both. And, I've become more lactose-intolerant than before. Then, December rolled around and I asked around for a good gastro doctor because it was getting way worse. Like, painful-this-is-how-I'm-going-to-die.
And, then I found out I was pregnant. Oh... That could be it? Well, I'm almost 8 weeks and oh my, ouch. Yeah, all of it is gone. Not going to eat anything with that stuff included anymore. And, we shall be talking to my favorite doctor next week at my prenatal check about what to do. Not. Fun.
In the meantime, there's Costco!
Look at what I found!! And, it is so good!! Organic Red Lentil Rotini! When I head back there, I shall get another box. Yum!
But back to the REAL fun!
We headed to the McWane Center yesterday. And, I'm not totally sure what it was, but they had more fun than ever. And, the trains and giant blocks weren't even there (they are doing a new exhibit soon on that floor)! They tried out all kinds of new-to-them-for-today things and had a blast!
They even tried out the "scary" bed of nails!!!
