(1)As I'm writing this, Cecilia is hollering "Paul! Make me into a sandwich!" Your guess is as good as mine.
The other day we got a decent snowfall during the night and the sun was shining during the day. What kid could resist? Well, "any kid who can read a thermometer" would be my guess because it was 7 degrees out. Well, at first it was 7 degrees. Then Paul begged enough that I agreed he could go out once it got over 10. Degrees.
I present to you "Snow Play at 12 Degrees Fahrenheit"
No I did NOT go out and take this. Are you on drugs? Out the window photography, baby. Unlike those two, I am not insane.
Eeek! I keep forgetting and I really want to do this because I love this image of Mary. Mary at Better than Eden is hosting a link-up where we all share our favorite images of Our Lady. If you've been reading for a while, you already know this, but I don't care! I'm saying it again!
The Polish Madonna. I can, and have, just stare at it for hours. I can see it from my chair at the dinner table and gosh it absolutely warms my heart every. Single. Time.
Oh! Yeah, this is kind of sort of huge-ish. But not really. I'm slowly trying to weed grains out of Paul's diet. And maybe beans and nuts, too. The gluten for celiac-ish type symptoms and all the other things to try and fix his teeth. The best tip I got I think was to start with one meal. Just try and do one meal a day. So I've been focusing on dinner so far, and it is actually not as hard as it seemed. Turns out that the protein and veggies are what everyone likes most at night. Winning.
Also, I feel like a complete crunchy-poseur because I'm not really actually very crunchy (it seems. I mean, I don't feel like it) but I ordered cod liver oil, coconut oil, and coconut flour all on the same day. Anything fo' da chil'rens!
fan page about freezing potatoes and apples? Can you see how lovely these sliced apples look? Not brown at all! After I peeled and sliced, I tossed them into a bowl of sugar water. Then I pulled them back out, shoved them in the zip lock and threw them into the chest freezer. They were GREAT in the apple pies for Thanksgiving. Highly recommend it next time you find a killer price on apples. You know...next year.
Belly pic time!
12 weeks, but I'm also wearing maternity clothes both on top and bottom in this shot. Make of that what you will, friends.
p.s. You're lovin' the extra super snazzy hairdo, I know it.
