Baby Shower(s)

Waiting upon the arrival of Mr. Milo has brought me two awesome shower/lunches for him. Last week my good friends threw a surprise shower for me by luring me in by saying it was a Silpada jewelry party... so of course I was there.
Thank-you to all my wonderful friends who came and surprised me on this great day!

All the baby loot

Amazing handmade gifts

Isabella was sooo excited to give me her gift she made for Milo and a pink bow in the corner for me :)

Later the next week my mother in law took my sister-in-laws and I out to lunch and again they spoiled me with more gifts

Thank you thank you everyone!!!! only 3 ish more weeks!

Jam session & Heifers a droppin'

Last week we had a baby calf! Everyone was so excited to see him, we all went over to the 'pasture' to check him out and he was as cute as can be.
He was just following his mommy around and she would stop and wait for him to catch up with her...sooo cute. There will be two more dropping very soon! Their mucus plugs are hanging out...(I know gross) and then this heifer (Yvette) will drop in about 3 1/2 weeks !

This baby calf and his mama also surprised us this past week
He and Brody were great friends. They would get so excited when they would see each other.

When Charlie took a nap we made some yummy raspberry jam and a couple of mixed flavors

Now I just need to make some fresh bread to go with it!

Brody and his little bowl haircut LOVES donuts! He'll pray for them at random times, get a little evil laugh if you ask him if he wants one and if you promise him one he will not let you forget you owe him one. So when I found this little donut bakeware at the store I knew he would love it! Friday night I told him that we would make donuts in the morning, but to our disappointment out AC went out in the morning and turning the oven on with no AC would be a no go on the donuts. He was a little disappointed but got over it pretty quickly. Fortunately, this evening we got to make our coveted little donettes.

It's a good thing we did not plan on sharing these donuts because he double dipped like 17 times
He was a great little helper and read the recipe to me
Showing off his own "piggy" whisk

I had to cut him off at donut number 3. He might have even snuck in a 4th because he shoved 3 in his mouth and then a whole new half appeared in his hand
These guys were fun to make, I too partook of a couple, they didn't however taste like Krispy Kreme, Shipley's or even Frosted Donettes. More like a Weight Watchers version of a cake donut, which is probably best for me...till I have another tomorrow ;p

Slip N' Slide

Slip n' Slide will NEVER go out of style! last night we got to play with our friends 100' industrial sized slip n' slide. This brought back memories of when I was a kid a we got a slip and slide and the first night my mom slipped, slid and there was no more slip n' slide....she accidently ripped it, but I'm not bitter ;)

Brody was a little peanut going down this thing. He loved it, he finally ended up with no pants and still going like a champ.

The dads 'DOMINATE'd this poor thing, even fipping poor kids over in the process.
(haha jk Adam)
