Tuesday 10

1. I'm trying to motivate myself to get everything done for Taryn's little birthday party this weekend. I have been a slacker mom and am so unorganized! I still need to make a menu and shop for a lot of things! We're having it at our itty bitty house so it's going to be a small and simple affair. Taryn is VERY excited about her party. When I mention it, she jumps up and down with joy.

2. Both kids are STILL singing and humming Christmas songs. It cracks me up. Taryn mainly sticks with Jingle Bells. Cayson has quite a variety including Joy to the World, Jingle Bells, Away in the Manger, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, etc.

3. My dad and I sorted through some of his antiques this weekend and found a few jewels... he has a huge collection of milk bottles and soda bottles. The caddy and bottles below found a home in my house. :) The camera will be finding a home at my sister's house. If anyone needs a bottle of Opium, we have one. :) It has 1/3 of a large bottle left. lol.

4. Taryn has started praying recently before bed. It really is cute but we cannot understand most of what she says. She says it with inflection like we use in our prayers. She does always include her CDO teachers (usually 2 or 3 times each prayer!) and her friends at school. Sometimes, she prays for each friend by name and other times she just prays for her "friends." Prayer is powerful!

5. Taryn had her 2 year check up this past week. She had a blast dancing around the exam room while waiting for the pediatrician. She weighed in at 26 pounds.... she gained 3 pounds since her last check-up.

6. Cayson has the narliest bed head hair. It really gets quite the volume... I don't know if this photo does it justice, really. He has mentioned cutting it the past couple of weeks, so we may be chopping off his locks. :(

7. We're decorating for Valentine's Day along with Taryn's birthday decorations. I did a quick update of my burlap wreath by adding a fabric bow and a Valentine's Day sign (Hobby Lobby).

8. We've had a junior policeman around these parts lately. Protecting and serving our household. He gave me his "mean" face in a couple of these pictures. Can't you feel the anger? Ha ha.

9.  I have to share an easy recipe I saw via Pinterest - I didn't pin it because it was soooo simple! Place 4 chicken breasts (can be frozen), 1 jar salsa and 1 pkg taco seasoning into slow cooker and cook all day. Shred and serve on tacos, in quesadillas or on nachos. We had chicken tacos the first night but used the leftovers for nachos and quesadillas. It was such a quick and easy meal. I'm thinking that next time I will throw in a can of black beans for an extra healthy punch.

10. And, I must end with these two cuties! Picture courtesy of RM Photography!
