My bucket list is in my about me [at the top] but I am posting it in a post, because I want to know what is on YOUR bucket list! {PS a bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you die AKA: 'Kick the Bucket'} I will totally add stuff to this as I grow/go...

--make sure my kids grow up in a happy, healthy, Christ centered family
--do a mission trip
--live in san diego again
--go on a cruise
--home school our kids
--take a spectacularly awesome honeymoon with hubby after a vow renewal [in 2013!!!] we never took a honeymoon!

Conversations with Kids...

Friday, September 30, 2011 | | 0 radtastical comments
Setting: Over brownies...deep conversations come out over brownies and milk:

Brie Bird: Hey mommy? I had a bad dream last night...
Mommy: Oh? What was it about?
Brie Bird: Well, it was Christmas and I was eating nuts...
Mommy: Okayyy...? Then what happened?
Brie Bird: *Looks at me like I'm a Loser* I HAD TO EAT NUTS!
Mommy: {blank stare} wow. That sounds horrid. {i feigned horror...obviously}
Brie Bird: *nodding in agreement* It was bad.

I am the only one in the family that will eat nuts...why there are always two batches of brownies made. I dislike brownies without nuts and no one else will eat them WITH nuts...and hence, why we seldom by brownie mix or make them....I will never lose weight with that kind of brownie intake.

Snack DIY with Brie

Friday, September 16, 2011 | | 0 radtastical comments
  Our youngest daughter [middle child], "Brie Bird" wanted to do a cooking show today. She's so funny. So I let her do this snack tutorial. Who doesn't like fruit on a stick?!? Kids will eat most things or at least try them if they're presented in a new way. Case & Point : Fruit on a stick...with some marshmallows thrown in. And it's a bonus if they get to do it themselves.

**May need to do this for younger kids since there's a point on the end of the stick or clip it off**

You need:
-Skewers of some kind
-Fruit of any kind [we do this with canteloupe, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, watermelon, etc]
-Marshmallows [jumbo or mini. colored or not] 
-A willing & hungry child. 

Take it away Brie!



Baby Food : Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus

Thursday, September 15, 2011 | | 0 radtastical comments
I decided to make Everett's baby food. I needed a food processor. I wanted it in a color that was fun, worked like a charm, easy and simple, affordable. I got all of that in the Cuisinart Mini Prep turquoise. What's more fun about that?! [Plus I got that free two day shipping with Amazon Prime. I have a shameless love of free amazon get it through signing up for free for Amazon Mom. Google it. It's that awesome]

Soooo...I decided to make baby food tonight in the Mini Prep Plus. Everett is just shy of being 6 months old, so we're just starting to test the waters of baby food. He's eaten some bland mashed potatoes [he likey], mashed banana [he my surprise, but I'm going to try that again], and applesauce was a big YES! Oh, and pureed pears.

This little thing has power. Do not underestimate it. The first photo is before I pureed in the last bit of water.

PS: the cilantro behind it is NOT in the baby food. It's part of supper for the rest of the hungry brood! Cilantro Lime Rice, Honey Spice Fried Chicken [skinless/boneless] & Corn on the Cob.

I whipped these up today. This verse, John 15:5, has been an awesome guide for me lately. With new endeavors coming up, journeys I could never have even dreamed up, God has plans. It's not my own will, but His. Following is scary but the leap of faith requires me to trust that God has a plan & I should lean on Him. Another verse I may make into a printable is Jeremiah 29:11 which has been a long time life verse. I am also thinking of doing some fall printables! This one is my first. I am getting mine printed from the online printing company . This is an 8 x 10 Print! I did it in a few colors. ENJOY!!! Also if linking, let me know in a comment.
