Little Miss Chit Chat

While trying to get some overalls on Ava - "I don't want to wear oberalls...they hurt my nickels." - weird.

"I don't want to count backwards anymore, it hurts my arms. Let's dp the alphabet; that doesn't hurt my arms."

"Let's go home and get chocolate milk and twizzlers. That is two good ideas!" - we have lots of "good ideas" right now.

"If I have deer corn, I bet the deer will come up and eat it out of my hand!"

"SHHHH. Be quiet my baby is sleeping!" - Ava is loving her new baby doll.

These days, we have a constant stream of Ava chatter.  When watching tv, the closed captioning is a must. You just never know what she'll say! Such a big girl.

Food in the Family!!

It's been a while since I've done a post about food. Admittedly, I spend less time in the kitchen during the summer since we spend much of our evenings outside playing. But I did make some fun meals recently that incorporated some cooking items we recently acquired from our grandma's. I love having family items in and around our kitchen. :)

We got hungry and creative one weekend morning...

Breakfast pizza! I added a salsa flavored greek yogurt dip as pizza sauce. Yum!

Some cinnamon toast, using my grandma's cinnamon sugar blend and shaker. Lola approved! This is also on my grandma's kitchen island which now makes it's home in my kitchen! We LOVE it.

French Onion Soup (from Trader Joe's), in those old soup crocks that not one, but two of our grandma's had! I love having these to use when a warm cup of soup is calling your name!

A Day on the Town with Girls

Several weeks ago my mom and dad kept Ava and my nieces on a Friday night. The next day I met the girls in town. We had lunch, we painted pottery, then we topped it off with delicious ice cream. If you haven't been to Elle's Patisserie in Springfield, yet, go there and get some lavendar ice cream. Thank me later. :)

Pretty girls, all getting so big!
