A couple pictures…

I am a little busy to update life at the moment, but I had to post a couple pictures Ben recently took.  Our big boy will be 3 months old on the 26th of Sept, and he is FINALLY sleeping through the night with no peeps to be heard!  Yeah, hallelujah! Last night he slept from 9 pm to 7 am!!!!  God is soo good.  Anyway, here are the promised pictures…

Menu for the week….

•September 7, 2008 • 1 Comment

Can you believe it.  I’ve actually planned this week’s menu and even bought all things necessary to prepare each meal and it’s only Sunday!  This is a huge step for me.  During a normal week, I frequent Trader Joe’s at least 3 times, buying stuff for that day or if I’m feeling more prepared the next day.  But, no more!  I am moving beyond a common European practice of shopping almost everyday of the week, and I’m learning to plan.  I am hoping this will save time during the week, as well as keep us from eating out as much.  I am motivated to prepare healthier and more economic meals that give us more time as a family at home.  Going out to eat can take so much time.  So, without further ado…

Monday: Fettucine with Shrimp Scampi (barefoot contessa recipe), Garlic Bread, broccoli

Tuesday: Lasagna (another barefoot contessa recipe), Cesar Salad

Wednesday: Homemade Pizza, Spinach Salad

Thursday: Grilled Honey Soy Chicken, Fingerling Potatoes, Broccoli

Friday: Out to dinner

Saturday: Buffalo wings (Ben’s favorite, i’m attempting to make them for the first time), mac and cheese, Green Beans.

There you have it.  We’ll see how things go!

First day at Preschool…

My baby went to preschool for the first time yesterday.  I can’t believe how big she is getting.   I was definitely overwhelmed with emotions.  Isabel didn’t seem to share the sentiment.  Within minutes she was playing with a puzzle, looked at me and Ben and said “Bye!!”.  Here are the pictures Ben took…(She’s just growing too fast…)
