I have been neglecting my blog but it's not totally my fault. We still have not decided on what to do about a new computer. Hopefully we have something figured out ASAP though ;) B uses his iPad all the time but that doesn't work for him to really do actual work nor does it work for me to blog so we just have decide what we want to shell out money on...having both our computers die within a few weeks of each other really stinks.
Anywho, around here lately...
I had my newphews over night the other week. All 3 boys were up way too late and crashed hard!
The result of that sleepover was Cullen and I ended up with a 12 hour flu bug, no fun! I did love having my nephews over for the sleepover and C enjoyed having his cousins here :)
Cullen has been a ham as always....
and a cuddle bear...
C Bear turned 18 months!
We have played outside in the leaves at Gma and Bumpa's house!
Colored lots of pictures....
Danced a lot with the kitty piano...
More cuddles during Ellen...
Found out that toys are not necessary for Christmas, C loves diaper boxes.
discovered that C has a new found LOVE for pickels...
B surprised me with a treadmill and our downstairs living room became a workout room! I have wanted a treadmill for almost 2 years so of course I was very thankful!! Just had to wait for the right deal and opportunity. I've used it every day since we've had it. I really missed running, it was my alone time. My mind clearing time. And that's B.O.B. in the top right, I haven't been introduced to him yet ;) Gus doesn't like him!
B and I getting a workout room meant that C's toy area had to move. He now has his own toy room. He hasn't taken to it yet, he'd rather race his cars up and down the treadmill ;)
I made our favorite meal again, chicken pot pie! I topped it with biscuits...never again will I do that. Tasted delicious BUT the pot pie took about triple the bake time.
My bestie, that I haven't seen in over two years visited!! Her daughter is almost two! We had so much fun with the kiddos! That deserves a post of its own.
I have also still been making wreaths!
These two burlap beauties are my most recent creations...
Ornament orders keep coming in as well! If anyone is interested in wreaths or personalized ornaments, let me know! chaptersofourlife @ yahoo [dot] com
At Earth's Best breakfast is not to be forgotten!!
With the school year in full swing, it may become even more challenging than usual to make
time for a complete breakfast before work or classes. Despite your challenging schedule, it’s
important to keep you and your children focused on healthy breakfast eating habits every
We’ve heard it time and time again, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but there
are many reasons why this statement holds true! The typical person spends eight hours asleep
each night with no food or water. By the time you wake up, your body is dehydrated and you
have little energy to start your day off with. This goes for adults and little ones in your family!
If you skip your morning meal, you tend to eat more throughout the day and the foods are
usually unhealthy and high in calories. An individual who fueled up for their day with breakfast
can wait until lunch to eat with energy to spare. From as far back as the 1950s, studies have
consistently shown that children who eat a well-balanced, complete breakfast perform better
academically than children who regularly skip breakfast.
Earth’s Best offers several breakfast items that will help your little ones start the day off right
and are delicious additions to any breakfast regime. You may even find yourself stealing your
child’s oatmeal for yourself!

serve up a hot breakfast to start the day. Available in two delicious varieties including
