Milestone

I’ve been way behind on blogging and just haven’t been in the mood for a while, but here’s a milestone I just wanted to remember:

As of tonight I have now shot over 10,000 photos with my first DSLR (purchased 8/29/10).

Easter

We started our Easter celebration by attending church Saturday night. We’ve tried out the Saturday services a few times, and it’s great because there’s much less of a crowd and it leaves more room for new Sunday folks. I’m not sure how many services they had on Sunday (there are usually two), but the usual one Saturday service was offered at three different times Easter weekend.

Cady’s sleep schedule had been off all week, and she had been on and off as far as her mood was concerned and ended up sleeping through the sermon in the car after Daddy drove her around a little.

Then we went out to eat, but her and Tim spent most of their time visiting the ducks at a lake behind the restaurant where they discovered a nest of duck eggs and lots of baby ducklings while my parents, my sister, and I ate dinner.

Cady Easter
Sunday Tim hid our plastic eggs in the front yard of my parents’ house while my mom and I both snapped pictures and he attempted to record on video Cady finding the eggs. However, after showing her what to do, she wanted him to be her personal egg hunting assistant.

The eggs were filled with coins even though she doesn’t know their use since she loves putting coins in her piggy bank. She hasn’t had real candy yet and doesn’t know what it is. She isn’t too big on sweets yet, but she was very happy to see she had plenty of new coins for the game of dropping them into the slot in the pink piggy.

Splash Park Goodbye (For Now)

Cady
We loved going to the splash park last year. Sadly, they’re going to be closing it down this summer to do some construction. The new plans for it sound exciting, but I wish they had waited until summer was over to do the work. Maybe it will take a whole year before it can be ready for next summer.

We decided to go for one last hurrah even though it was a little cold, and Cady was one of the few kids who spent her time in the water. She loves playing in water!

Spicy Shrimp, Chicken, and Sausage Skilletini

Shrimp Chicken Sausage Skilletini

I was in the mood for the Spicy Skilletini at Johnny Carino’s, so I took some ingredients we already had and tried to make my own. If I remember correctly, it’s just spaghetti noodles, olive oil, shrimp, sausage, 1/2 of each of a red and a green bell pepper, 1/4 of an onion, minced garlic, leftover spaghetti sauce, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper flakes, pepper, and maybe salt.

Greek Style Skillet Supper

Greek style skillet dinner

[ Recipe found here ]

Finally used the last of the ground turkey. I think it will be a while before I have the bravery to try it again. It gets a little better each time, but I really prefer the beef. I didn’t use the cinnamon, and I didn’t measure all the ingredients because I always like to adjust the recipes.

Doesn’t look the picture on the site, but it’s still delicious. I would love to know the secrets of the food photographers. I’ve heard some interesting things about their work.

Taco Pizza

One of the things I like to do when we have leftovers is put them on a pizza like the Hawaiian I made with the holiday ham. This time we had taco leftovers but no more tortillas or shells to put the ingredients in. We did however, have some pizza staples.

– pizza crust
– pizza sauce
– salsa added to the pizza sauce
– corn
– onion
– ground beef cooked in taco seasoning
– Mexican blend shredded cheese

Taco PizzaMy husband and I agreed that this was reaaaaally good and that we should start making special pizzas more often. I’m looking forward to it because I have lots of ideas already.

Bluebonnets, Birthday, and Beach!

Cady

Cady didn’t like sitting the bluebonnets even on a towel or on Daddy’s lap. She just wanted to throw rocks in the creek like the big kids.

Quinn

Quinn was a really good model for me. We walked over to the park one moning while Cady and Daddy were still sleeping. She sat nice and pretty for me even though she really wanted to chase a bird. After photos, we chased the bird together.

Chocolate Cake Strawberries

My Yaya said she wanted a BIG cake for her birthday. Last year’s cake was the size of the first two tiers, so this year had a third tier!

Cady

Cady didn’t want to touch the sand with her bare feet, but she loved playing in the sand and in the water. She kept asking for “more, more” and pointing behind us when we were leaving.
