Hey all. I’ve been busy. Really busy. I’ve wanted to post and post and post and had some cute posts in my head, which I of course don’t write down, so I forget them and am left with nothing. But I did take pictures, so that helped. Want to see what I’ve been up to? It’s been fun, it really has. 😉
Saturday and Sunday I baked. I baked and baked and baked. And cooked. A lot. It was fun. I’m not sure WHAT got into me, but it was all I wanted to do. I even made a batch of some sinfully yummy brownies for Jake to take to work Monday. It’s all about the brownie points….no pun intended. 😉
I also made another batch of brownies for us here at home. I must say, homemade brownies are so super easy and MUCH better than boxed. I was amazed. First time making them from scratch and it was easy easy. Too easy. I’m making more today.
I also made some breakfast cookies and baked oatmeal. Both recipes I got from my sister in law. The boys LOVE the baked oatmeal and the breakfast turned out good too. I made them with a flax seed cereal, so they’ve been very, um, regulating for the boys. 😉
I also made cookies which I didn’t get a picture of. Bummer. They were cute pumpkins. For dinner one night I made some bread and chili and man oh man was that bread good. Since then I’ve made three more loaves. Yeah, we like bread. 😉
Monday with the boys was BAD. B.A.D. BAD. I didn’t have anything structured for them to do b/c #1. I was dead tired. I got only 2 hours of straight sleep, and then only 15 minutes here or there through the night. The kids were having a wierd sleeping night. And I paid for it. 😕 So Monday was bad. So bad that when Jake got home I retreated and didn’t come out. Since then, we’ve been doing crafts and such ALL DAY each day. I went to the dollar store the other night and loaded up on craft supplies and things for them do to. They are LOVING it. And I kinda am too. I’m glad to have something the love doing so much, so our schedule now is breakfast, craft, snack, outside, lunch, outside/craft, nap, and then our evening routine. I’m also thinking of fixing the garage so they have a play area in there for when the weather gets bad or too cold for them to be outside. I’m going to order some bouncy balls and belly scooter for them. The garage is big enough and empty enough for them ride their bikes in there too. I’m excited to get it set up.
Here are some pics of their fun crafty stuff and some of the stuff they’ve made. 😉
