One of my goals for the new year is to cook more instead of just heating up food. I really do enjoy cooking, but with the girls sometimes its just easier to heat food and eat. So far this year we had this meal shown above- Lemon and Garlic Chicken with Focaccia bread last Friday, then we had Cheesy Chicken bundles Sunday which made enough to freeze another meal worth, and then Baguettes Monday and Chocolate bread with Spaghetti yesterday. So far it seems like mostly just breads, but hey its baking. The Lemon Chicken was yummy, but L-bug hated it. The Cheesy Chicken was a hit with everyone and the chocolate bread was yummy, but not as sweet as L-bug excepted.
January seems to be birthday month. Ro-bear's birthday is Monday, her party's tomorrow. Then we had friend Ks little J's 1st birthday last weekend and neighbor S's little J's 1st birthday next weekend and her boy C's birthday the next weekend. Shew, birthday month, there's also the girl's cousin E's birthday in there somewhere.
Ro-bear's selfie. It just cracks me up.
The girls started in on book binding out of their own volition. L-bug wanted to make Ro-bear a book for her birthday and wanted it to stay together. We watched a lot of youtube videos on book binding then decided on a method and I had to help because it involved poking holes in the paper with sharp objects, then we sewed it up and now we just have to hope L-bug gets it done by Ro-bear's birthday. Good luck on that Bug.
Oh L-bug also started a homeschool cheerleading group this week. We'll see how it goes, so far she loves it. The other two girls in the class are older though and more experienced and it made her feel a little behind. We explained that she just has to work hard and she'll get better. She took to the cheer part easily, its the tumbling she's "behind" on...
This week was a little crazy, the weather was too cold to step outside for the first half of the week and the girls weren't feeling into the routine thing, we felt a little off all week. On the bright side we're not halfway through second grade. L-bug is very happy about that. Here's to a lovely weekend and a much calmer week ahead (please please let it be calmer)
