February Firsts

Miss Sophie's First Manicure

My little diva, she knew just what to do. She has never sat that still for anything her whole life!
Guess she's seen mama get one or two manicures before.
This sweet lady knows soph from previous visits and picks her up and kisses her on the cheek. She smile at everything Sophie says and does, but I don't think they understand very much of each other at all. I just told Sophie, tell aunty, "I light quit dryyyy." LOL (at myself!)

Hunter losing his first tooth.
He's lost his first two bottom teeth now! *Tear, or two*
My big boy.

He wouldn't let me help him at all. The tooth had been hanging there for daaaays!

YAY! He Did It! 'All by 'self!"

Daddy (I mean the tooth fairy) though it appropriate to leave $5.00! I think I got a quarter for my first tooth.

He wouldn't let me help him at all. The tooth had been hanging there for daaaays!

First Time on the Slopes for Mama and Hunter Ra!

Hunter and I tried skiing for the first time. He did great, me...well there's always next time...

Deer Valley was beautiful. I should have just watched and sipped my hot cocoa...

Rick tried his best to coach me, I blame him for my injuries.
Tiana and Daxia are pros on the slopes. They were so bored waiting for me.
Hunter was such a trooper. Afterwards he told me, "Mama, it's okay if you just wanna stick to tubing." He's so supportive. He 'pizza'd' down most of the way but at least he didn't eat it like his mama!

Pulling his first tooth ordeal:

"Oh, This is gonna hurt!"

(Pop) " It didn't even hurt!"

"I got a suprise for you, and I did it all by myself!"

My humble food blogging

-As I become more familiar with this blog, I'll attach recipes if anyone ever requests or is interested. Taking these photos motivates me sometimes to make a nicer meal than boxed or frozen pasta or fast food. I have a file in my computer that I go to when I need a good dinner idea. So let's share, shall we?
Coconut Chicken Fingers: so yummy. Sliced mango on top of sticky rice with shoyu is a nice take on the typical side dish.

Really Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken with veggies...and sticky rice.

Hunter begged me to buy the panckake puffs as seen on tv last year. Here's some blueberry-lemon pancake puffs. Yum.
Yummy Buttery Coconut Chicken Fingers

Gooey Cinnamon Rolls- recipe from Pioneer Woman. So much work but yummy!

He's a great helper. The mess was great too!

Pasta Rigatoni: Pasta a la Marlboro Man from PW

Good old Shepherds Pie: with ground turkey

Oooh Peach Dessert. Last time I made it was in the fall, I need some now!

Chilled Chicken Salad with cream cheese and grapes

Spanish rice with homemade enchiladas and Timberly's famous home-made salsa.
