Looking back..

I was looking through a few old pictures and when did this sweet baby grow to be a little girl?!?

Man how time flys. Hugging this little girl tight and enjoying every moment God has blessed me with her!

A few pinterest favorites

Do you ever feel like you cook the same thing over and over again for dinner?
I do!!
I feel like I cook the same 5 things every week... but just change up the days.

I have been trying to do better and use some new recipes on pinterest.
Here are a few of my new favorites: 

It really is super easy and I love it! 

Brents ALL TIME favorite
So easy and SO fast!
 I love that it has stuffing, broccoli, cheese and bacon so I do not have to make any sides with it!
Its great for those nights that you do not have time or dont want to cook.

Addison and I loved this one.. Brent wasn't as big a fan as us! ha
But its good to have something other then chicken and beef every once in a while.

Another good Chicken recipe is
The whole family likes this one! 

Lastly one of my favorite side dishes is
Brents Grandma Nona makes this one as well and it is one of my favorites.
I love broccoli any way but add a little parmesan cheese and its even better!

What are some of your favorite dinner recipes??

Happy Wednesday!

What have we been up to?

We have been so busy lately with school, Brent was in China for 2 weeks, potty training, sickness and just the business of life.

Heres a litte catch up...

We celebrated Uncle Sam and Pops birthday..
 at Shogun! 
Happy 16th Birthday Sam and Happy birthday to the best Pop in the world! 
We LOVE you both!

We are potty training..
 and wearing big girl panties!
She has been doing really well and almost filled up her potty chart!
Chuck-e-cheese here we come :)

We had a fun play date at the mall with some sweet friends!

Enjoyed the pretty weather outside

Spent all day Sunday in the ER. :( 
Addison had a double ear infection. 
But our sweet girl is starting to feel better.

I was a single mom for 2 weeks while Brent went to china for work.
I have to say I do not know how single moms do it and I have WAY more respect for them! 
To try to make Addison understand where Daddy was we had a map of china..
Along with a calendar to count down the days until he got home..
She LOVED waking up each morning to add a sticker to the calendar and see where Daddy was in China that day! 
Every day she looked forward to the little time we got to talk to him and both of us could not wait for him to be home. 
 She was so excited to pick him up from the airport!
It was precious when she saw him coming down the stairs. She took off running and jumped into his arms and has been attached to him ever since he has been home! :)
We LOVE our daddy! 

Hope everyone is staying healthy... I know we are trying too! 

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Monday, My mom, Sam and I took Addison bowling for the very 1st time. 
She got a minnie bowling set for christmas and LOVES it, so I thought she would love this as well....
and she did!
In fact her very 1st bowl was a STRIKE! :)
 She loved the dinosaur they had to roll the ball down.
 All girl bowling in a dress! 
Addison did great! 
We only bowled 2 games and by the end of the 2nd she was more interested in the food...
Then anything else but we had so much fun.

I love all the 1st we are doing right now!
She is at a great age to do new activities. 

Bundle up its cold out! 

Proverbs 10:12 
Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs.

A BIG step!

Recently we changed Addison to a BIG girl bed! 

I have to say I was sad to see her crib go and to not have a "baby" in the house anymore.
Her face was priceless... 
She LOVED it!
Daddy read our bedtime book and Addison slept great her very first night.
 I am loving all these fun first!

We are also starting this...
It is not going as planned.. but hoping she picks it up soon! 


Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

*Our 1st snow*

On December 28th we had our 1st snow!
It was beautiful and Addison LOVED every minute of it.

Not sure at 1st..
 but when she reilized what it was she was so into it! 
 Marching around.
 Trying to make snowballs!
 Love this sweet face
We didn't stay out long because it was so cold and we did not have enough clothes on to keep us warm but..
It was so fun to watch her play in her 1st snow and love every minute of it!

Proverbs 2:1-2
My son, if you accept my words
    and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
    and applying your heart to understanding
