Good day. That's what they say in Australia. :)
I've kind of been m.i.a. lately over here on my blog. We've been busy. Brady has basketball now twice a week and of course tennis is three days a week. Our evenings are always busy running around.
I 'm dragging. We've been staying up way too late. The Australian Open is going on right now and the matches don't even start until 9pm...and the last one starts at 5am. We let Brady stay up half the night all weekend. Good thing he had Monday off from school! We dvr'd last night's matches and he watched parts of both of them this morning. I'm ready for it to be done. The final will be played on Sunday at 5am. We are planning to get up early, have breakfast and watch the big match. Brady doesn't know we're planning this....so he will be suprised when his alarm goes off bright and early! These are the moments I hope he remembers someday when he's older.
I walked into the livingroom Friday night and Brady was taking pictures of the t.v. He said he was pretending he was there...in Australia. He took all kinds of pictures.
We woke up Saturday morning to our first snowfall. (Unless we count that one day of snow we had in October!) Brady woke up and said, " UGH...snow!" My thoughts exactly. He never asked once to go outside and play in it. When Eric went out to shovel later in the afternoon Brady went out to help and then got his sled out for about 5 minutes. I think he slid down the hill 3 times.
That was his extent of playing in the snow!
Brady asked if he could make us lunch on Saturday. I was planning to try Genn's spaghetti recipe.... so I got everything out and told him what to do. The only thing I did for him was cut the onions that he sauteed. He did such a good job. He's really taken an interest lately in helping out in the kitchen....and I LOVE it. The spaghetti was fantastic...a huge hit with all of us. When Brady was mixing the tomato soup with the cream of mushroom soup...I wasn't quite sure how it would taste. But, I might actually prefer this spaghetti to the regular old spaghetti. If you want to see a picture...you'll have to check out Genn's because mine didn't turn out so well. I did get a picture of the salad Brady made for me.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and gave it a try.
Cool whip hearts for hot chocolate.
So quick and easy. Spread cool whip onto a cookie sheet.
Put tray back into the freezer until frozen.
Then, cut into hearts!
I layered the hearts between wax paper and put them
in a container and back in the freezer to get out when we
have hot chocolate. I love quick and easy.
Is anyone still there? I kind of rambled and my thoughts are all over the place. Sorry. Told you I was tired.
I hope everyone is having a great week so far!
