egg-cellant coloring

This is a first
Yes she is 3 years old..
I know, its selfish
I like to avoid messes
all messes
or maybe its just OCD.
I tried to make it easy and mess free.
This system was perfect!!
no spills
no mess
just pure cuteness!!

What is the best mess free way you have colored your Easter eggs?

keepsake calendar prints

I have been wanting to share this cute calendar gift that we put together for my parents.
Made with love by
Brayden, Rihanna, Ava and Trentyn
inspired by
on pinterest
JANUARY by Brayden, Ava and Rihanna

Snowmen, white are dancing round,
Dancing, dancing all around.
Each is different it’s surely true.
Here’s one I made from my hand print for you!

made by all
My Valentine
A piece of me I give to you.
I painted this heart to say "I Love You!"
The heart is you, the hand is me,
To show we are friends, the best that can be!
I hope you will save it and look back some day,
At the heart I made for you on this special day!

MARCH by Ava
My Easter Bunny
I’m an Easter Bunny, watch me hop.
Here are my ears, see how they flop!
I’m a special bunny
I know it’s true,
Because I was made only for you!

this was made with Trentyn's hands and feet:)
 Spring Flowers
look at me!
It isn't showing
You can't see it.
But I'm growing!  

 MAY by Rihanna

My Caterpillar
The fuzzy caterpillar crawled upon a leaf.
Spun her little chrysalis, and then fell asleep.
While she was sleeping,
She dreamed she could fly.
And later when she woke up,
She was a beautiful butterfly!

JUNE by Ava and Rihanna's feet
My Butterfly
Pretty little butterfly,
What do you do all day?
I fly around the flowers,
Nothing to do but play!

JULY by Brayden

Our Flag
Our flag is red, our flag is white.
And in the corner it’s blue.
Oh, how our flag stands for our country.
How I love the red, white and blue!

 AUGUST by Ava
The Fish
I hold my fingers like a fish,
And wave them as I go.
See them swimming with a swish,
So swiftly to and fro.

SEPTEMBER by Rihanna
Autumn Leaves
Autumn leaves are now falling,
Red and yellow and brown.
Autumn leaves are now falling,
See them tumbling down.

OCTOBER by Brayden

The Silly Willy Spider
The silly willy spider crawled up on my head!
It crawled all around, then made a nice soft bed.
It wiggles down my shoulder
And jumped down to the floor.
Then the silly willy spider
Crawled to someone else for more!


Thanksgiving Turkey
Turkey birds are different,
From sea to shining sea.
And you’ll never see another bird,
Like this one to you from me.
Can you see what makes him different?
Do you need some helpful hints?
I made him from my very own
Thumb and fingerprints!

DECEMBER by Brayden

My Christmas Tree
I’m sure that you’ll agree with me.
This is a special Christmas tree.
Made for you by me!

It was lots of fun and a cute keepsake!!

Cheeseburger Soup - gluten free

There is a bit more crispness in the air these days and I would much rather be snuggled up in a blanket and watch all the lifetime movies a day can handle.
But lets face it
its not going to happen.
My days consist of browsing Pinterest to find the latest organizing fab and
of course a simple no calorie Starbucks drink.
Or cleaning.
and cooking.
and baking.
I do have my cleaning a bit more organized (thanks to pinterest!) I'll share about that later.

seems that pumpkin is all the crave these days and I have a smashing recipe that I found that is AMAZING.
But for today I'm cooking up one of our all time family favorite

Cheeseburger Soup

leftover ground beef
instead of broth I used this
instant bouillon

Cheeseburger Soup - gluten free
1/2 lb. ground beef*
3/4 cup onion
3/4 cup carrots
3/4 cup celery
4 cups potatoes
1 teaspoon basil

1/4 cup corn starch
8 oz Velveeta cheese
1 3/4 cup milk

In a saucepan, brown the *beef; set aside. In the same pan melt butter and saute onions, carrots, celery, seasonings and potatoes.
