It has been a crazy couple of days. But I wanted to take a moment to honor my now 9 year old. He is a great kid, great big brother. I love watching him grow, there is always something new around the corner to great him. I love you Zachy and I am so proud to be your mom. Happy 9th Birthday!!!!

Naomi and I had a lovely day on Saturday, we went on a nice walk the kind were the baby walks you know you look at every passing car, dog, leaf, person, bug . . . everything. The kind that takes an hour to go 6 blocks. I love this and she seemed to also. I really enjoy her. Now that I have 3 little people to take care of when I am with only 1 it seems so care free. Maybe a little too care free. You see Saturday afternoon we went out on the deck and there is a single step, I thought oh she can handle that, and not like she going to die or something if she falls. Well she fell and did not die (of course) but now I am eating my words. So . . . Saturday night we were at a girlfriends birthday party and Naomi was super fussy, then Sunday she was fussy not horrible but a little out of sorts. So this morning putting her in her car seat she cried when I put the strap over her right arm. Oh and last night when daddy was giving her a bottle she cried when he touch her right arm. So I called the nurse and she asked if she could twist her wrist so I tried and she screamed. We are going in at 1PM. I will let you all know how it goes.
P.S. my gut was telling me something was up on Saturday night but I was not quite sure what it was ( I know Duh!) Lesson learned always listen to your gut especially when it comes to your kids.

This was Nathaniel's first time for ski class, Pete says he broke down in tears and just would NOT go to the class (why force something that is supposed to be fun) So he and dad skied a for a while. When they called me I thought Pete might go jump off a cliff (not so much fun). Of course once they got home Thanie was telling me how fun skiing was and that he was pretty good at it. We will see how next week goes. This is Grandma and Grandpa's thing they have been taking Zach skiing since he was 3, so Pete is off the hook for next weekend (he was just filling in because G&G had a party to go to this weekend)

Sunday we had some family time at the park with some longtime friends it was cold but fun. We had a nice easy going weekend. Just enough to keep us busy, but not too much.
We ended our weekend with banana splits. Check out the great hair. I love the curls, though I am thinking of shaving Zach's head while he is sleeping some night. No . . I would not do that but I am ready for a new doo. Now I better hope he does not read this, you know if he does he will never change the hair.

Thanks to my sister-in-law this was our Yummy dessert tonight. Thanks for the email.
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and The most dangerous cake recipe
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
You are going to print this out straight away, aren't you ?
