handful of oats

cinnamon (or other spices) to taste
dash of vanilla
that's it! so healthy! no sugars!

crazy hat night!


i loooooove that my kids get so excited about salad night.
we try to have them twice a week (chop once for two meals!) and they love it that they get to choose whatever toppings go on their salad. we set a minimum (you have to have at least 5 toppings) and they go to town! so healthy!

the sewing projects never end.
that night was stuffed animal-holes.

michael and jack sleep together every night but lately we've been making gabe's biggest dream come true and putting him in there too! he doesn't last very long but they have fun while he's there :)
