Wordless Wednesday

It's okay..........

that I don't like Miss Piggy. She is annoying.

That I like to go all out for the girls birthday parties. They aren't gonna let me pick the theme forever.

that recycling is piled up by our front door. At least we recycle right?

that I haven't blogged very much in the past couple weeks. I just wasn't feeling it.

that i signed up for Ancestry dot com last night after watching the Dvred episode from last week. That stuff is really interesting and I traced one line back to the 1600s. (It's a free trial)

to think that the majority of people I come in contact with on a weekly basis are certifiably crazy.

This pic is from this time last year. My baby has grown so much in a year.

Potty Time

So it seems like everything is happening really fast with Lily. First she decides to give up the binky and now the girl is using the potty. I mean really using it, like every time. She is still wearing her diaper at night but big girl panties during the day. She filled up her potty chart in a couple of days and we went to wally world yesterday to pick out her mermaid toy. I am just so proud of her.

We have been keeping the potty in the living room which is were we hang out the most and I usually don't even have to ask her. She just goes and sits down and does her business. She even went in the potty in the car. Ha. We had to go out and run errands and I figured we should bring along a little portable potty just in case. I set it up in the trunk and she did her business. It was awesome.

Rainy Day Fun

We had a little bit of a rainy/snowy mix a couple days ago and Lil talked her Daddy into taking her outside. The girl loves to play. She also loves to try to lick the rain drops off the porch railing. This takes a lot of concentration as you can tell. 

I just love her big pouty lips. And believe me she can use them to pout. 

This girl is super silly and makes me laugh everyday!

Bye Bye Binky

We Did it! 
Well I didn't do too much. It kinda just happened. Lily is now binky free. I am so relieved. I thought for sure she would have that thing when she graduated from High School. I really can't say that we did anything monumental to rid her of it. She fell asleep early on the couch or in the bed with Daddy a couple nights without it. Then we sorta just told her that we didn't know where it was or we didn't have it anymore. She has cried for it a couple times but we have held strong and been successful. It feels like a huge weight off of my shoulders to have broken this habit. 

Bye Bye Binky! Smell ya later!

Next hurdle is potty training! Help!

My Valentine's

 So since I slacked and didn't take any pictures of my Valentine's this year I want to show you some of the pics we had taken back in the fall. 

My girls and hubs are super adorable and I am so blessed to have them in my life!

So precious. 

And we wouldn't be complete without this funny little gem. 

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

Pintastic 7

Great idea to reduce waste of tomato paste

Craig said this very thing just the other day....Most recipes call for only a small portion of tomato paste -- you use a tablespoon or two, and the rest invariably goes to waste. To save the remainder: Carefully open both ends of the can with a can opener. Remove one metal end, and discard it. Leave the other in place. Wrap the entire can in plastic wrap, and freeze overnight. The next day, use the metal end to push the frozen paste out the open end. Discard can, tightly rewrap unused portion, and store in freezer up to 3 months, slicing off just as much as you need each time you cook.

Love my Mountaineers. Cute tailgating outfits.
Mountaineer Style ... And yes, beer is an accessory :)

Very pretty hair.
