Bless this bird...

Getting our baby bird blessed

Just popping in to share some pic from Liam's Christening. 

We had a wonderful ceremony in the church with a few other families from our parish. 
We were blessed to have Liam's God Mother, Charlotte and God Father Sammy there for the ceremony and big brother Zane even got to participate as well;)
Liam did great...he didn't even cry!

We added the silver pin his nanny gave him to the gown and pins that were handed down and worn by many others in our family including his momma, uncle Henri and his big brother Zane.

After we had a small gathering at the house for family to come and wish him well on his big day.  Such sweet memories for our family;)

Party Time

Another party has come and gone.
 This year's theme, Yogi Bear.
 And Z couldn't be happier!

 Well he would have liked actually having his party at Jellystone with Yogi Bear while camping but time limitations and distance being too far for our guests would have been an issue.
But the weather was beautiful and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.


And his most prized gift of the day...his Yogi Bear Christmas book!   He nearly flipped when he saw Yogi in the same book with Santa...his two favorite characters!
Oh and there were games too..

A good time was had indeed.

...And treats for later too

I wonder what he will demand for next year;)

Cowboy Hats & Solid Foods

Not that they have anything to do with each other but look at that face!  I had to include the cowboy pic;)

So the bird has started on solids...this was our first attempt at sweet peas.
I can't tell if it was a success...

Day One of Cloth

We have officially gone cloth.
 Today was day one of cloth diapering.  Went pretty well.
 I really feel good about this decision and think we can stick to it for the most part.  We plan on doing disposables for night time to help with leaks because he does sleep for longer stretches occassionally so I don't want to throw him off or have to clean up messes in the middle of the night.  And I'm thinking traveling may be easier with disposables too but for the bulk of the time at home and just millin' around we are gonna be in cloth...
And he seems pretty happy with that.
And these colors just make ME happy;)

Domestic Goodness

It makes me SO happy to have little pockets of time through the day to be able to whip up a little yummy treat here and there.
Now don't get me wrong...90% of the time I don't have time to brush my hair much less whip up a boiled egg but sometimes...I get a wonderful little pocket of time that is not allocated to jewelry or laundry or dishes or feeding or changing or burping something.  During those occurrences, I make yummies like this! 
Above are just regular canned biscuits tucked into a mini muffin tin and then ham and cheese are nestled inside a few.  Then others just have a sprinkling of cheese and seasoning mix.  Once baked up they make great little bread bites for breakfast or to eat along side your lite lunch.

Speaking of lunch, I had a great loaf of "everything" bread that was going stale and was about to have to be thrown out if we didn't finish it off so I had an idea to make a little Tapas lunch spread for the hubs and I. 

I sliced up the bread and toasted it up with some olive oil and it tasted AMAZING!  Then sliced up some cheeses and meats and sliced up son roasted red peppers and presto...a wonderful tapas lunch!  YUM!

Now for some serious yum...I can't take the credit for this one because I saw it on a blog somewhere...but don't remember where.
It's a blueberry yogurt pop.  I made it by putting whole blue berries in my mold first then pureed blueberries mixed with a little vanilla yogurt and then layer in the vanilla yogurt and freeze.  Oh my holy yumminess!

You totally need to try these treats!!
