Maybe this will help me

One of the blogs I stock gave me the great idea to put our dinner list on our blog. I can post recipes as I remember to:) I am hoping this will help me from looking at the clock at 4 o'clock pm and going what can I put together for dinner. And this should help me try out some new recipes too, I stock enough food blogs and print out enough recipes time to use them! Feel free to send me some idea's for dinners and easy breakfasts.
(Thanks Sarah for the idea!)

Such a good big sister

Lilie is such a great big sister! She was playing out front with Ava this past weekend (while the weather was nice) and came yelling in the house, "grab your camera, you gotta see this!". The photos and movie will explain what Lilie was so excited to teach Ava. To bad the battery was on it's last leg.

Kitty! Poor Saturday, once Ava gets a hold over her it's all down hill
One crash into the neighbors plants, sorry:)

Movie Time

Lilie wanted her to stay on the grass for a softer landing in case Ava fell. Last time Ava tried to drive the Dora ATV she ran into the little white car with her foot stuck on the gas and her body hanging off.

Next month TKD match

Two of the three of these girls will be fighting in Watsonville on Saturday March 6th at the Pajaro Valley High School 500 Harkins Slough Rd, Watsonville, CA

Baby you can drive my car

Pulling up to the gate at work I hear Ava in the back YELLING, "I wanna dri (drive) Momma! Out Mamma, dri Momma!" A few days ago Lilie was driving at work and now Ava is behind the wheel. She wasn't to do everything her sister does.
Key check, is this thing on?

Checking the temp outside

Stop being a back seat driver mom!
Ava driving movie

The two new weather created pot holes are called "gonna fall" by Ava.

Candy out my eyes!

So a very "sweet" friend of mine who works in the office at the local candy factory, Marich Confectionery brought me a bag of goodies. The bag had a little of everthing, chocolate ( they do privet lable for Trader Joes and Starbucks), jelly beans (they were the orginal Jelly Belly but Mr. Marich sold his recipe to Jelly Belly), gummi's and more. They are the not so pretty ones that they don't sell. Curriosity got the best of me so I weighed the candy on the Wii, and the total weight of candy came out to me....drum roll please....11lbs!! Not wanting all that in my house I busted out the Ziploc bags. Pictured bellow is one of five bags I broke the megga bag into.

Look who's driving now!

Lilie isn't allowed to use the petals, that was just to much trouble.

Just in case you were wondering she is driving down the drive way at work.

Second time in three days at the pediatrician. Ava is now on antibiotics and we are stuck at home still. Nothing like having Lilie home from school for a week of sunny & warm wonderful weather and being suck inside. Poor Ava looks at the park as we drive to the doc and asked to go play and we can't go. I am so sick of runny noses and coughing. Now to top it off Lilie has a slight runny nose and cough.

Waiting for the doc.
Sissy keeping busy.

Oh did I mention Ava hasn't slept through the night all week either? Oh make it stop already!

Best Hubby

One of the two things I asked for from my hubby for Valentines Day was wonderful Kara's Cupcakes. I think you are either a Sprinkles fan or Kara's fan. I am sooo a Kara's fan!!!

These are two of the five he brought home for us the share. Ava fell asleep before she could try them. I was a little to excited to eat so I didn't get a photo of all of them.

Josh got: Coconut, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Ganache, Sweet Chocolate & Seasonal S'mores

The second thing was to do the run with me:)

♥ day

With the girls at Grandma's house Josh and I started Valentines Day with a 5k run (Josh's first). It was the 25th Together with Love Valentines walk/run hosted by the Monterey Bay Rape Crisis Center It was a beautiful fun along the ocean, leaving from Lovers Point Park, Pacific Grove and turning around just past the Pacific Grove Municipal golf course. It was perfect weather with wonderful views. Josh of course was ahead of me and finish first but it was fun to do a run with him.

Place Name Bib No Age Overall Chip Time Gun Time Pace
10 Joshua Sutton 1368 35 111 30:36.0 32:46. 9:52/M
29 Carin Sutton 1369 29 287 38:08.0 40:19. 12:18/M
Place by age group (I think that port-a-potty break threw my time a little)

After the run we headed to Rosines Restaurant for a yummy breakfast. We walked threw a little craft fair by the warf and made our way down the warf and back.

Then off to a store I can walk around for hours in... We picked up a few things for dinner and headed to our next stop, a relatively new shopping center in Marina, Ca. Josh was headed for the Best Buy to pick up some new movies, but I wanted to check out the REI. (I could spend a few hours here too)
Our last stop was to pick up a few articholks at Pezzini's Family Farm in Castroville

As if we hadn't done enough walking we took the dogs for a little mile and a half cruz around the neighbor hood. That seems to be the max they can do.
The first movie is starting as I finish this up so I am off to watch Zombie Land while the dogs snore away.

Look ma no hands!

Lilie has been trying to teach Ava how to do this for almost as long as she has been out of me! Haha but it's true. Ava finally got it and it was a HAPPY day in our house. What does this say about our family?

She really doesn't have the nose for this yet, just a rather flat spoon.

1-2 tic tac

After hearing Ava count to herself I tried like hell to get her to count for me. I resorted to candy aka Tic Tac mints, orange of course;) She would only go to two with the camera but when counting Go Fish cards in her room she would go to three.

Foster Daughter

Friday night we had Josh's dad retirement party. So we had the trusty babysitter come on over and spend the night. She also spent the next two days with us running around. I think she had a little fun.
Fun with the PF Changs horse...
Lunch with Josh's brother and parents.
The mall wore the girls out!

It's only 3 o'clock girls...
