Last weekend we spent our Saturday making the backyard pretty. Peyton loved helping us pick flowers at Lowe’s and after lunch she was all-hands-on-deck to help Forest get them in the flowerbeds. I can’t wait for these plants to get bigger with more blooms so enjoy all summer!
loving. Our 2016 family photo book – it just arrived today and it’s beautiful!
needing. A nap.
wanting. To hold our baby girl in my arms!
This weekend, just a few days shy of 38 weeks, we got a little dressed up and headed out for a few maternity pictures. I recently photographed a family session at a nearby public gardens and I knew it would be the perfect spot for maternity pictures for baby #2.
I’m currently backing up all of the videos on my iPhone to the computer so I can free up some space. Instagram stories definitely makes this job A LOT more difficult because I am constantly recording little snippets of our everyday.
We had a play date at a friend’s house Wednesday morning. It’s the sweetest thing having friends with kids the same age as Peyton and knowing they’ll get to grow up together!
So I missed posting a Thoughts on Thursday yesterday. I’ll go ahead and be honest and let you know that I took a nap while Peyton napped instead of typing a post. Trust me – it was very needed.
So here I sit on a Friday evening. We just laid Peyton down for bed and Forest is in the basement painting and grouting tile so he can install baseboards tomorrow and be D.O.N.E. [except for dusting everything and putting it all back in place which we’ll do tomorrow and he said his basement will be done for Mother’s Day – how sweet. ;)].
So here are a few thoughts from my week:
Peyton and I made the easiest peanut butter cookies yesterday afternoon. My dad made them over the weekend for a cookout so
I the baby was obviously craving them and I’m telling you, they are SO easy! Which is the goal when baking with kids, right?!
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 cup peanut butter
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients and spoon onto cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Times vary so check frequently (I had used 3 cookie sheets and the best ones were baked for 14 minutes but my dad said his didn’t need to bake as long so it depends on the oven!).
