This Girl

A friend bought us some special Schneider’s Cookies. I didn’t take very good care of them in the box in the car on the way home, apparently.


Somebody didn’t care.

This girl. I just can’t. She’s too much.

If only…

If only we could pack them this close for traveling purposes.

We bought a new (used) cabinet for the wall in our bathroom. Before we hung it (okay, still haven’t hung it) H thought it looked fun to play in on the floor. All four kids did fit inside with the lid closed.

The problem is it didn’t last very long. I sure coulda used a break, ha!


H looks like he maybe regretted his decision to play in the cabinet…

Tried and True Recipe: Honey Garlic Meatballs



I made these meatballs several months ago for my family and they were delicious! I then proceeded to make them for every set of dinner guests we hosted for the next few months. Because when I find a recipe that works… I stick with it.

So that DEFINITELY makes these ‘Tried and True’.

All thanks goes to fabulesslyfrugal.com for this recipe:


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 28 ounces fully cooked, frozen meatballs


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar, honey, ketchup, soy sauce, and garlic.
  2. Place frozen meatballs in a 4-quart slow cooker and pour the sauce over them. Stir to coat. Cook on low for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Serve as an appetizer, or over rice or noodles as a meal. (Or freeze to warm up another day)

Our new “Two-Faced”

Lil’ A: I got a new ‘two-faced’, want to see it?

Me: Yes I do! (even though I was the one who bought it… who does she think buys things around here anyway?!)

Lil’ A: Here it is!


Me: Oh very nice, what does it taste like?


Lil’ A: Candy!!!

Giggle Game

When we all put heads on tummies and giggle. The giggles make heads bounce and bouncing heads means more giggles…


Quote of the Day

Lil’ A: I’m thirsty.

Me: Do you have a question?

Lil’ A: Please can I be thirsty?


Haha!! Well, I was hoping for a please but she didn’t get it quite right. Oh she makes me laugh everyday…

Preferred Position

H did it. Even as a small kiddo.

H arms behind head

N did it.

N arms above head

A did it.

Avi arms up

All babies probably like to sleep like this at some point.

So of course Mister B does too…







I just can’t get enough.

Baby on Tile

Great title, huh?

Sometimes this Mama is feeling creative, and sometimes… not so much.

Baby is on the army-crawling move these days. And the weather has gotten warmer. So maybe those two facts have something to do with the baby’s habit of rolling/scooting himself over to the cool tile floor and laying his head down for a little rest.

Cause he’s done it just a few times…

I’m Sorry, B

I’m sorry, B.

I’m sorry because you have an older brother and two older sisters that think it’s very fun to play with you and sometimes I wonder (or don’t have to wonder so much) whether or not you like it.
