Memories

This weekend I have been watching Ethan & Isaac, while Ben, Emily & Evie are in South Carolina at a wedding. It has been a fun, extremly busy weekend.... I will post about it later. I am at the Kahn's house tonight because their flight gets in late and I found these photos. It was the day we got Bela and a few days before we bought our house, they were taken at the end of August 2007!!!!

At his first Portland Pirates game! We went with all the Wescott's and had a great time. We started at Binga's Staduim where the wings were awesome!!! I think wings are my favorite food! We then headed over to the Civic Center where the Pirates played the Lowell Devils. The game started at 7 and Peter did awsome!! We stayed until 9, into the third period.

Also, as you can see I sent this from my phone, wasn't sure I could do that after I lost my blackberry, happy to find out that I can.

Organizing Mission

I am on a organzing mission!!! Living in a small house, and running a business out of it, it has to be clean and organzied at all times. How do I do it? I have found two great websited to help!
and
They have great ideas and helpful tips! I been doing the daily 7 from TTJ for almost two weeks now and what a differance it makes! Here is what I do every day:

Number 1: Make Beds Right Away
Number 2: Do One Complete Load of Laundry
Number 3: Empty the Recyling into Can Outside
Number 4: Keep Your Kitchen Sink Empty
Number 5: Clean Up After Yourself and Help Family Do the Same
Number 6: Bathroom Wipe-Down
Number 7: Before Bed 10-Minute Clean Up

Another great organizing and money saving tool is menu planning. I have been planning for a couple months and I really think it helps save money. I get ideas from other food blogs that I follow and on Menu Plan Monday Posts from the people that participate . I plan my weekly meals on Sunday, and do the shopping for the week. I will post my menu every Monday.


Another great motivating and organizing tip, I will be doing this for our bedroom, it really needs help! Can't wait to start this!

RIP Blackberry

My beloved is gone!! Last night I went smelting (that will be posted later) for the first time and my phone fell into the smelting hole and right down into the river..... I almost fell in trying to save it. I know it's just a phone but I had a TON of pictures of my little man, boo hoo :(

Yummy & Easy Dinner


Last night was fend for yourself Friday. Sometimes we just eat whatever. I wanted to make something good but easy. We went to Hannaford and I got garlic naan (flatbread), pesto spread, and tomatoes.

When I got home I preheated the oven to 350. I got the naan out and spread the pesto on it. Sliced tomatoes and placed them on it, then topped it with shredded Italian cheese. Put it in the oven for about 15 minutes and voila!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from the Wescott's!!! What a year for us! I started this blog a year ago, not knowing where 2009 would take us. We were blessed with the birth of Peter on April 3rd and it has been an amazing journey since then. Pete switched departments at Sappi in September where he has a day position and what a difference that made! I left my wonderful job nannying for the Kahn family to start my own daycare and I am very excited about it.

Peter will be 9 months old on Sunday, it has gone by way to fast!! He has his doctor appt. on Monday, I am very eager to hear how much he has grown since his last.

For my blog, I made 75 posts last year, and I want to get to 100 this year. I am going to start adding things that I cook, as well as more updates about the fam!

Oh, and my New Year's Resolution...... lose 25 pounds before I get pregnant again. I know it sound weird... lose weight, only to get pregnant, but I want to be heathly and at a good weight before I gain again!!
