I've been in a blogging rut! Life's just sort of been chugging along, and I've wanted to capture some thoughts but they seem to be too fleeting for me to remember and blog about. Sometimes it's easier for me to think about my life in terms of "status updates" like on Facebook and I've considered just writing a post with those, but like I said, they've too quickly left my brain before I could record them. :-) I'm an out of sight - out of mind kind of girl, like if I don't write it down, I probably won't remember it too well, if at all. So maybe that means I should be even more careful to blog or journal on paper or something!
To recap a little bit of the past while, here's a pic of the bagels we made. It was so fun and really easy (it took about 4 hours from start to finish, but it was worth it and lots of that time was waiting for the dough to rise). They were delicious, and I told my friend, Kristi, that I'd save her some, but somehow they all got gobbled up, so I guess I'll have to make them again and share them this time! We did Asiago cheese and Cinnamon and Plain. Here's the recipe.
We were having really nice warm winter weather until a couple of weeks ago when the rain set it, so we took advantage of it by being outside a lot.
We went down the the aquarium with Robyn and Ocean and had fun seeing all the wonderful creatures! Livi had fun playing in the Splash Zone and spraying water.
Valentine's Day at our house always involves chocolate fondue....so delicious and fun, I think we all ate till we had bellyaches!
Livi made a "feeding machine" for her baby, and she wanted to take a picture of me feeding her.
Livi is officially completely out of diapers!!! She'd been wearing them at night for a long while, but once we realized she was drinking too much water at night and stopped that, she was able to stay dry all night. After earning stickers for staying dry 10 nights in a row, we decided to try undies for good. Only one accident during the night has occured and that was several weeks ago, and it was my fault for forgetting to have her go right before bed.....so yay! It's so great to be diaper free! She got to go to Toys 'R Us and pick something out as a prize. She wanted this swim baby....but got scared by it in the tub, so now she just plays with it without batteries. :-)
Our days have been filled with goodness & mercy, I'm so thankful for the life God's blessed me with. Maybe some deeper thoughts will be posted in the coming days. :-)
