Six on Saturday

1. On Monday this recipe for Hawaiian Fried Rice showed up on Mel's Kitchen Cafe. I had ham from Easter to use up, so I made it that very day. It was really good - like I won't just be making it when I need to use up some ham good.

2. Peyton took a little tumble this week and got a cut right under her eye. It's one of those things that looks a whole lot worse than it actually is. Everyone asks me about it and as there isn't really a very exciting story to go along with it, I've gotten really sick of it. Luckily it's getting better every day - soon our little scar face will be a scar face no more!

3. On Wednesday Peyton's little friend, Calla, turned one and her family invited us over for a little birthday party. Calla's brother, Rhys, is one of Corbyn's best friends and as these two are only a couple weeks apart, they are pretty much destined to be best friends too. Peyton was very interested in trying out Calla's cake. She'll be giving us a pretty good show in a couple weeks (unlike Corbyn who didn't really want anything to do with his cake)!

4. We spent a lot of time at different parks and the swings this week. Corbyn is way too big for a baby swing, but will always pick a baby swing over a big boy swing given the choice. One of the times we went, a little girl was using the baby swing, so I jumped at the opportunity to get Corbyn used to the big boy swing. He loved it and has been asking for the big boy swing ever since!

5. On Thursday I went to hear the Food Nanny speak at a Stake Relief Society Activity. I'd never heard of her before, but apparently she's pretty famous. What she teaches isn't too different from what I've been doing already and I wholeheartedly agree with her quest to bring families back to the dinner table. It was a really enjoyable activity.

6. I finished my second book of the year - Crossed by Ally Condie. It's the second book in the Matched trilogy. I know I said I probably wouldn't read it right away, but I hadn't started reading anything else, so I figured, why not? I actually liked it more than the first book because I thought it was less predictable.

Mel's recipes rarely disappoint...I'll have to try the rice too! And Stockton still prefers the baby swing too...he won't even try a big boy swing, maybe Corbyn can rub off on him!

Miss you guys :(

Please tell Corby and Peyton that Grandma loves them <3

Looking forward to Peyton's 1st birthday party - I'm thinking she will be a little more excited about eating her first birthday cake than Corby was :)

You have a good memory Tracy - impressive!
