New Kitchen Gadget

I am still on my whole/real foods quest and I am still taking one step forward and two steps back. I don't know why it is such a struggle for me but it is! One of the things that is making it easier though is having the right tools for the job. Remember a long time ago when I got my Vitamix blender(which I LOVE)?? The next thing I put on my wish list was a nice mixer. I didn't really think I would get it because who wants to fork out almost $400 on a mixer but I never thought I would get a Vitamix and I did so why not wish for the mixer, right? Well guess what I got?? Yep, after saving up my credit card bonus points forever I finally had enough to order this beauty:

 I broke her (yep it's a girl) out by making 2 loaves of zucchini bread, pumpkin oatmeal and pumpkin muffins. Yummy! The muffins were gone before I got a picture.

Back to Blog Land

Wow, it has been a whole year since my last post!! I had decided I didn't want to blog anymore for various reasons but I have changed my mind. I have really missed it and I miss having so many pics of the girls because let me tell you I take a lot more pics when I am blogging!!! I know it has been so long that no one is probably going to be reading this post. Well one person probably is so here is a quick shout out to that one person...Hi Mom!!!! Anyway, I am probably not going to do a lot of back posts of what we have been up to the last year (maybe just a few) but I what I blog about will pretty much be the same: homeschool, cooking, day to day life and that sort of thing. So just to catch up a little here is a recent picture of the girls. There is even a picture of me which is pretty rare! I vow to force Chris and I to be in our pictures this year!!
