Foodie Friday

Well it is my last post of 2016. I really have no idea where this year went! This week was short and we spent the last few days enjoying being outside since the weather has been good. It is also bittersweet as Tuesday the girls start dayhome! Crazy. I am so ready to go back to work, but am also worried about Chloe adjusting to dayhome. Anyways here are some photos from our week:

Avery tried skating for the first time. I bought the bob skates that attach to boots for a couple reasons – one, they are $12 vs $40 and I was not spending $40 for her to hate skating. Two, she can keep her feet in boots, much warmer than skates and lastly, with real skates Avery would fall once and she would be done. I told her once she can do a lap with these skates she can get princess ones 😉

The first time did not go great as she refused to dress warm:

Day two was much better – since she dressed warm, shocker!

I am so happy we have this double sled, it has been put to good use lately! We also saw some calf moose on our walk!


Avery loves playing in the crib with Chloe when she wakes up:

Chloe loves Avery so much but Chloe is totally the annoying little sister to her these days…


Okay onto meal planning:


Saturday – Chicken fingers and salad

Sunday – Garlic Lovers Salmon and Southwestern Quinoa Salad – Gimme Some Oven

Monday – Chicken Noodle Casserole – Life in the Lofthouse

Tuesday – Turkey Lasagna

Wednesday – Lime Shrimp Dragon Noodles & broccoli – Budget Bytes

Thursday – Honey-Lime Sweet Potato Black Bean Tacos – Cooking Classy

Friday – Pizza

This weekend we are visiting family, going to our friends for NYE and getting in a long run, oh and finally taking down the Christmas tree – everything else is down but Avery wanted the tree up longer.

Have a fun and safe NYE!

    I can't believe how fast this past year has gone by. Crazy that the girls are starting day home after this weekend!

    Your sled is like a bigger version of mine! Liam loves to hang out in it.

    Hope you guys have a great NYE!

    Wow can't believe you are almost back to work!! The time has flown by! That's great that you are looking forward to going back to work though.

    I'm torn about getting the kids started on skating. I can't be near the ice right now but J can't handle 2 kids on skates by himself. We will likely wait until next winter to get them started. This year we are doing skiing– well, they are. I'm just there for the hot chocolate 😉

      I know! Me too, makes the transition on everyone so much easier! I am just ready to get into our new routine now.
      Honestly I think waiting for skating is a good idea, A likes it for 5 mins so I am happy the rink is a two minute walk from the house or else it would annoy me!
