Bath Time…

March 14th, 2017 | Category: chloe, family, house

The nice and beautiful morning snow turned into a wild gust of snow, sleet, wind, and icy rain towards the afternoon, but that didn’t stop the kids from playing outside. Chloe also cleaned the snow in the front porch and came inside frozen. She’s defrosting in the bath and told me not to tell Shane so she can have a nice and relaxing time alone. 🙂

My favorite piece of furniture in the house is this built in cabinet in my bathroom. 

Snow Day~

March 14th, 2017 | Category: chloe, family, food, house

We woke up with giant snowballs coming down from the sky. I’ve never seen such big chucks of snow coming down before. Yay, snow day!

I made broccoli cheddar quiche for breakfast and Chloe and I made apple crisp for mid morning snack. Thank you God for the day off. 🙂

Kids have been studying hard preparing to become members of our church this spring. Chloe even takes notes addition to doing the study materials. Such a good girl…

Dinner & A Movie

March 5th, 2017 | Category: chloe, family, food, house, shane

I made spicy tuna rolls for dinner and we ate it in front of TV, watching a movie. Not something I normally let them do, but it’s just me and the kids and it’s Sunday, so I thought why not… 

Cookies & Books

For dessert, Ms. Chloe baked red velvet cookies.

When it was done, she parked herself with her book and she was in her own world.

Shane also joined in. So proud of him for reading a lot these days too. He’s gotten into reading Rick Riordan’s The Heroes of Olympus Series and really enjoying it.

A perfect afternoon.

Homemade Poke

I love Poke and it’s so easy to make it at home.

I used wild yellowfin tuna steak and yellowtail and marinated it with soy sauce, sesame oil and honey. Throw in some seaweed salad, scallions and cucumbers over rice and that’s pretty much it.  

Happy Weekend!

We’re enjoying being at home today just hanging out..making mess in the basement. 🙂 We’ve been getting over jet leg and transitioning  to our regular routine this week since the vacation has been rough. Yesterday was still busy with kids sports/activities, a birthday party, errands, etc and today Andrew’s leaving for a business trip for a few days so we’re just chilling at home after church. 

Chloe’s little spa nook. 

Before Andrew left, they played ping pong in the basement. Andrew striking a pose for the camera…lol.

Our walls are so bare…You can see I don’t really spend much time here. Nothing’s hung on the walls in the basement.
