Our Days

Thank you Santa for the new LEGOS! They have been used everyday and the boys can both handle them with no problem.

I finally got around to cleaning the fish tank.... they look happy eh?
Hard to see but T is sleeping on his tummy with his hands clasped behind his head. After I took the pic the "click" startled him and he gave me the most wicked glare before falling back to sleep :)

I finished T's name banner to match the one I made for cy last year. Yes there are threads, this is made from old jeans and the threads add character.
I am trying to follow a more regular rhythm with the boys and as a family in general so we can fit in everything that we want to do. Including crafts. I will write my rhythm at the end of this post if you are interested.
Yummy chocolate chip scones that T and I made for breakfast today. T mixed and did a great job, very little spillage. Now I have 2 helpers for my kitchen.
My 2 week menu. We are on a VERY tight budget and if I get lazy it's impossible to stick to. I made a 2 week meal plan and bought all the groceries at once. Anyone have a chest freezer we can buy? Meal plan at the end too.
Dominos cy :)
