Miscellaneous Monday Vol. 1

Well, I’ve tried this before, and I think I got about 3 weeks in before I stopped the Misc. Monday posts. Which is sad. Pathetic, really. So, I am going to give it a try again in Let’s see if I can DOUBLE the number of posts I kept up with last year.

As it is for most of you, today is a snow COLD day! Today would have been Lily’s first day back to school after break. Honestly, I am happy to have her home for another day. But I’m selfish like that I guess. We still have Christmas presents to play with, and board games to try out, and an Easy Bake Oven to start creating bakery masterpieces in!

The girls and I met some friends at Kids in Motion this past week. Have you ever been there? It is AWESOME! Obviously child friendly and it lets the kids burn off a whole lot of energy.

I wrangled the hubby and kids to try and get some EXTREMELY informal family portraits on New Years Eve. In fact, I am not sure informal even begins to describe it. No make up, in our pi’s, watching some random tv show that was paused in the background while we attempted to use the self timer on the camera. But, the important part is that we have these photos, and I absolutely love them!

I think we are all recovering from New Years Day as well. Every New Years we have our friends and family over for lunch. It is one of our absolute favorite days of the year. Our company stays all day while we watch football, and chat about old times.

Cleaning up after a party is always a chore too (but one that is well worth it!)

For those of you who don’t know, we are a gluten free egg free home due to Lexie’s allergies. I have been experimenting with homemade granola bars, and these are amazing! And so so simple to make! The girls always love helping in the kitchen too.

We had some friends over got watch the disappointing Packer game yesterday. As you can tell, the girls were having a lot of fun. They were putting on fashion shows, and playing with dolls.
