bread maker

So I got a bread maker for Christmas and its the best thing ever! No more buying bread at the store for this family I have been making my own ever since and its great because its so much healthier than eating all the preservatives in the store bought bread! I have made just a white loaf, wheat, cinnamon, and cranberry loaf. The cranberry loaf is really good and it goes fast! Lil R loves it and eats it right up! My next one I am going to try and make is a chocolate one I think it would be good not really healthy but tasty! My sister and brother in-law have been in competition because they got a dutch oven and have been making their own as well. I am partial to mine only because i made it and he is partial to his because he made it! my hubby eats anything so he is out of being a judge and its my sister and mom that judge it. Its all great bread and who doesn't like to eat bread! cant wait to make a loaf today!

A new Year 2010

So it's been crazy busy around this house so Its been about year since i blogged last and I am going to start this back up again. Robbie is almost 2 and Anthony will be 1 in June. Wow does this go fast and its sad because they are getting so big so fast and I just hate how time goes by like that. I am lucky to be able to work part time and be able to raise my kids and see them grow up. My life has changed alot from having two really scary pregnancies and then a blood clot in my lung. To be on this earth where I almost lost my life a three times means someone really wants me to stay around just a little bit longer. So i know there is something out there for me to accomplish and i am not sure what it is but i will be doing it. I know being a mother to my 2 wonderful boys is one of the things and i am obviously doing that so we will just wait and see what life will bring to the plate next......

long time

i know its been been a long time since i updated this thing but we have been busy. it was christmas and then new years and now things have slowed down a little. I have been really tired with this new baby then i was with robbie but it is prally becuase i am chasing my son all over the place. he is not yet walking yet but he is close so we will see when he does it. robbie's christmas was good it was fun he didnt know what was going on but it was cute to watch him look and play with each toy he got. yesterday we went to the sandbox with my friend heather and her daughter it was so much fun. robbie played and it will even be more fun when he gets older and can walk around. well thats it for now......

You Are 88% Ready to Be a Parent

You are totally ready to be a parent. You pretty much have your life in order.

In fact, there's a good chance you've been thinking about starting a family.

You are financially and emotionally stable. You would provide a good home for a kid.

It's also likely that you understand kids well. You've spent a fair amount of time around children.

If you're already a parent, you are doing great!

Keep it up. More kids wish they had parents like you.

what it says about me!

What Your Thanksgiving Meal Says About You

When it comes to the holidays, you follow and love the big traditions. You look forward to them every year.

You see the holidays as a time to be close to loved ones. It's a good time to reconnect and make memories.

You like the more adult aspects of the holidays - parties, cocktails, and having time off from work.

During the holidays, you are likely to feel energetic. At your worst, you feel bored.

You consider yourself to be a bit of a purist, and you're proud of it.

You tend to spend your holidays sharing and pitching in. You'll do whatever needs to be done.

Now we just have to get the basement ready and set the tables and get all the odd and ends ready for the day. We have 30 people coming so it will be fun! Then friday me and my sister in-law will go shopping at 5am we started that last year and i hope we keep it a tradition every year!!! We love doing that and you get good deals so its worth it if you can deal with the people! Then my husband and I will go to syracuse later that afternoon to see my husbands family. Then it will be back to work and counting down the days till christmas! I cant wait for my son to have his first christmas it will be so much fun! He is getting so big he has his two teeth coming in and he is just growing like a weed! Well his is waking up from his nap so that means i have to go but i will be back soon!
