change of dinner plans

The kids really wanted stromboli for dinner... really...wanted... it..... ! MB gave us this recipe I think when preggo with Evan.. and it is delicious... Abe and Parker have new found love for pepperoni and this is what they really wanted. Violet totally had other plans for said pepperoni... we had to change our dinner plans....


So there are many things about living in the pacific northwest.. beautiful flowers, green grass all year round... fresh food galore.. fruit veggies... you can eat all your food from local peeps which I really love.. there are minimal bugs. If you have ever lived in the south you KNOW what I mean. BUT alas here is something not so fun about living in this area. SLUGS like this in the porch.. you can only guess what abe's plan of attack is .. salt..

the princess has arrived

For Halloween, I really wanted Violet to wear this cinderella dress that we have.. it was Parkers and she wore it when she was two for the holiday.. Violet would have NOTHING of it. NOTHING! Lately though she is obsessed with dress up and all things princess.. I thought we might skip this.. nope.. It is really all she can think about- that and getting into my nail polish.. ;)
The first thing she says when she wakes up is."dress up" and often sleeps in dress up clothes..

Even though Abe's birthday was over a week ago due to scheduling issues and a MUST ( as in I MUST have it at the gymnastics gym ) the party was this past weekend.. He seemed to have a great time.. Here are some pictures of the party..
