We had some left over shredded beef that I made in the crockpot and so I looked up this recipe for taquitos. First time for me! The recipe called for ground beef so we didn't follow it exactly.
As you can see, they weren't very pretty, but they tasted pretty good! The first ones didn't fry well and some of them didn't stay shut. Anyone have any hints as to make them stay shut?

Quote of the Day

It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them. - Mark Twain

She Did it!!

Karrots rolled completely over for the first time! She was on her back and when she started screaming I looked over and she was on her tummy!

It's funny she did it today because it was the first time I spent rolling her around on the bed.
Now she isn't leaning so far. I think it scared her.

Good job baby girl!

Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero... you die. For non-bitmap humans like you, this is more of a challenge. But after extensive research at ThinkGeek Labs, we've determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don't understand? Well luckily for you we've created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.

Family Photos

They're finally in! We went on Jan. 15th and they're finally here! Here's a peak!

For those of you who'd like to order any and I didn't send you an email, please let me know!

Things That are Making me Smile

  • Waking up before Karrots and watching her.
  • Finding no dry spot under Karrots when she wakes up.
  • Friends/Family being real with me and confiding in me.
  • Being able to make my husband feel special.
  • God's provision. (I locked myself out of the apartment while doing laundry and it took less than 5 mins. to get the maintenance to get me the spare keys. Yes, I'm a terrible mother!)
  • Cloth diapers!
  • Karrots spreading her joy with strangers.
  • A car that runs.
  • God's sense of humor. Ever read 1 Samuel 19:18-24? Hilarious!
  • Being able to makes people's days with a simple act of sharing cheesecake.

She's Sitting Up!

Well, when she wants to. Most of the time she was bent over trying to chew on her toes, but she stayed balanced for a LONG time!
