Random bits

The girls spent Christmas morning writing their thank you notes so they would be ready to pass out after they opened their gifts.

Denton turned 16 months on Christmas Eve. We’re still breastfeeding and he’s never been sick. Coincidence?

I’m a huge fan of peppermint coffee creamer, even if it does have soybean oil in it.

Cadrian has a new favorite Iowa State outfit that I’m afraid is going to be worn every other day. (and that’s just because I make him wash it, otherwise he would never take it off).

I started something called The Tens List for Bible reading in April. Yesterday I just finished reading the entire Bible for the first time!  I’ve started a book called Crazy Love.

Our kitty Goldenmane is 14ish weeks and likes to spend time in laps and inside the Christmas tree. She also has a purr you can hear in Colorado.  Her favorite place to sleep is in the scarf drawer.

Aviana can do some magic tricks with her new magic set. It’s pure joy to watch her blossom.

I cleaned out the guest room. It’s never looked so good (if you ignore the ripped wallpaper, green shag carpet, dated furniture and the torn and sullied duvet cover.) 

Brielle is super sweet even when her face isn’t covered in tea ring frosting.

Cadrian’s favorite games to play are “Bad Guy Fight” and “Roughhouse”. Aviana loves the paper and pencil version (probably because we don’t have the branded game) of “Battleship”. Brielle enjoys look and finds, like Where’s Waldo? or 1001 Wizard Things to Spot.

I read the first Hunger Games in less than a day. I’m a little afraid to start the next one because of the amount of time I’d have to ignore my family.  But I can’t not start it!

I organized the storage and got rid of a bunch of stuff. That felt pretty good. I’d forgotten one should actually be able to walk into a room.

Aviana can’t wait until our ‘sewing for 18″ dolls’ books come in at the library.  She can’t wait to make Laura Hope Grace Lacy some clothes. (I hope it’s EASY!)

We still haven’t had any snow. Cold without snow just isn’t fair.

  1. Have to comment on a couple of things. Now that the kids have an older cousin that will be attending the University of Iowa, maybe they need some black and gold to support her with.

    As for the Hunger Games, Catching Fire great book, read it,
    MockingJay, not so great, kind of a let down but you will need to read it also to see how everything comes out.

  2. 2 cups half-n-half
    1/3 cup baking cocoa
    1 ΒΌ cups cane juice crystals
    Peppermint extract

    In a small sauce pan combine half-n-half, baking cocoa and cane juice crystals. Heat on medium, stirring with a wire whisk until everything had blended well and the cane juice crystals have dissolved well. Remove from heat and add a few drops of peppermint extract (add as much or as little as desired).
