Today could be the start something good or bad

So today is the day that Easton becomes a BIG BOY!!! He will no longer be wearing diapers except to sleep in!! Him and 3 other kids at the stables (daycare) are all becoming big kids. So David and I must have patience with our Little Big Kid! I sent 6 pairs of big kid underwear, 4 changes of clothes, 2 diaper covers, 1 change of shoes, oh and a partridge in a pair tree...lol. The one thing I can't find Vinyl underwear cover I can find ones that have a waterproof cover with like underwear on the inside, but they don't want that at the stables, that prefer vinyl covers, so if you know where I can get my hands on some I would love to know. I am excited because the stables kinda have to do the grunt works as Daddy describes it, we just have to assist. So this should be fun. Can't you just wait to hear about all of our accidents we will be having lol. I have a feeling it is going to feel like when he was first born and I was getting peed and pooped on! And now packing will have to be more clothes like a newborn again. I will keep you guys updated on our progress. Please pray for David and I and for Easton to become potty trained soon!


Turn Your Back

OK so yesterday I got some of my products that I order from what I sell...I can't just blatantly come out and say what I sell there is some law against it, but if you would like to know just email me :). I decided that I wanted to purchase some Jamaican Jerk Rub...David has been to Jamaica before and my relatives are from there, but I have never been or met my relatives. David said that that is common ingredient in all their cooking. So we decided to step out on a limb and try a new season. OK get to the story...so yesterday when I received my package I was excited to open it. I immediately got online and searched for a recipe online from website that I get all my info about my products etc. And I found one. I had all the ingredients! Score!!! (I will def. be using this recipe as a feature in next weeks Recipe of the Week!!!)
So when we get home from Work/School, Easton always wants a snack, but first we have to let Tanner out...So back inside, Easton says eat eat...ok so he wanted a waffle no biggie, we put in the microwave, I put him in his chair. Waffle is done I pull it out and put it in a bowl. The he points to the fridge and say orgrt. So I reply with you want yogurt. He shakes his head yes. So I get that for him... and then I start with preparing dinner. Easton is being really good. He is all about dipping stuff. So lets picture this...Easton is dipping his waffle into his yogurt, no big deal. Well I turn away and I start loading the dishwasher and I turn back around and I find this:

And This!!!

So all together Easton has Waffle, Yogurt, & Cheese for his Snack...good and nutritious!!! It made me laugh and that is all that matters...I hope you got your fill of laughter today too!


Whats Cooking

I am going to start a new thing...of course it is new because I have never done this whole blogging thing before!!! Duh!

Ok alot of my friends know that I love to cook and I LOOOVVVEE to try new recipes, so I am going to start a New Recipe of the week. Anyone who comes to my house for dinner always asking what we are going to eat...I tell them what I am making and I usually follow those words with I have never made this before it is a new recipie. And as far as I know nothing has never not turned out. Or at least my friends just grin and bear it. But they keep coming back, so it must always be good. And they have never said please don't make that again when I am over here. They always ask me where I get my recipes from and it get them all over the place....BHG, Pillsbury, Cookbooks, etc. I am a picture person...if it looks good it must taste good. lol I guess I like to try new recipes to because (sorry mom), my mom always cooked the same thing over and over...but I guess that was partily my dads fault because he never liked to try new stuff!! So enough gabbing lets get to it:


This is a good winter food!!

Sante Fe Chicken Bread Bowls

Recipe from Pillsbury

(Doesn't it just look good and hearty)

2 (11-oz.) cans
Pillsbury® Refrigerated Crusty French Loaf
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 (16-oz.) can chili beans, drained
1 (11-oz.) can Green Giant® Super Sweet Yellow and White Corn, drained
1 (10-oz.) can Old El Paso® Red Enchilada Sauce
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup ketchup
1 (1-oz.) pkg. Old El Paso® Taco Seasoning Mix
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
2 oz. (1/2 cup) shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Remove dough from cans. Cut each loaf into 3 pieces; shape each into ball, placing seam at bottom so dough is smooth on top. Place dough balls, seam side down, on sprayed cookie sheet. Bake at 350°F. for 22 to 26 minutes or until golden brown.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken, bell pepper and onion; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center, stirring occasionally.

3. Add all remaining ingredients except cheese; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 7 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.

4. With sharp knife, cut small portion off top of each loaf. Lightly press center of bread down to form bowls. Place each bread bowl on individual serving plate. Spoon about 1 cup chicken mixture into each. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Place top of each bread bowl next to filled bread bowl.

I hope you enjoy...let me know what you think of it when you try it!!!


This little Rascal

About two months we were down in my hometown visiting my family and friends for the day. We had left our dog Austin at my Dad's house while we went to our friends house, no biggie. When we got back we let the dogs outside to run and play. Well the dogs started barking so we knew somebody was there so we walked outside to see who it was and it was man carrying our dog Austin, whom got ran over by a truck. The heartless people didn't even stop. To say the least it was a LONG ride back home. David and I cried and cried. We decided that we would bury Austin in our back yard. Well every time we are outside Easton will say Dog and will point to where Austin is buried. When we mow grass he will wave and blow kisses to Austin...it is sad...

So for Easton's 2nd Birthday David decided that we need to get Easton another dog...no biggie. We went and looked at two different sets and decided to get one!! Well this little rascal cutie of a dog is becoming a responsibility of mine and only mine. I have to get up the middle of the night when Tanner starts biting and licking me to take him outside to go potty. I have to give him food and water...I, I , I! I ask my husband, babe can you please help me with taking Tanner outside so that he doesn't Poop or Pee in the house. His response, oh I am sorry I didn't know that he just ate...ummm we do the same routine every morning, sorry that I didn't mention to you this morning that hey I just fed the dog, so in 10 or so mins he needs to go outside...Men!! But I still love them both!!

731 days, 17,544 hours, 1,052,640 minutes, 63,158,400 seconds iwe were blessed with a little boy. On Monday of last week he turn 2!!!
The past weekend we were joined with Family and Friends to celebrate his birthday. The theme for the party was Bugs, he loves bugs. If he see one crawling on the ground he will stomp on it and then if he sees one dead he will reach for a paper towel so that he can pick it up and throw it away. He LOVES finding bugs.
We had Creepy Crawlers (hot dogs) June BugsI forgot to heat them up...Ants on a Log (celery with peanut butter and raisens) Lady Bug Crackers (Tomatoes and Olives on crackers) Lady Bug Lemondae (Lemondate with Red Food Coloring and Frozen Blackberries) Grass hoppper with Dip insdie (Bell Pepper with Green Onions as legs) and my Fav. of it all is the Grass hopper Cake, that I made!!!

He loves attention!! nothing like his momma at all He didn't want us to stop singing to him.
When he was opening his gifts we were laughing at this face and this face.....

Everytime he opened a gift he would OOOOHHHHHH!!!! OOOOOHHHHHH!!!!! We laughed so hard! It was too cute. He opened one gift said OOOHHHH!!! And started shoving the tissue paper back into the back because all that was in the gift bag was clothes, I guess he didn't like it. Too bad because Momma liked them!!
