Savannah picked out these pics she wanted to share on the blog. she has decided she wants to start sharing on our blog. I admit we have just totally let this go but I am committed to picking it up again so that I can have a journal for our family. Savannah says, " We were at my cousins' house. It was a lot of fun and I had a really good time. This is me and my cousin Alex. She is my friend and I play with her a lot."
We had a good dinner and the kids made ginger bread houses afterwards which was fun. We have done that for many years now as a tradition during Thanksgiving. We had our dinner at Ness and Chris's house in Desert Hills, AZ. The weather was chilly for us. We had lion house rolls with rasberry butter. Yum Yum. Everything was good. I brought stuffed acorn squashes with wild rice and veggies, nuts. They were really good.
Ok we will slowly catch up and hope to write more regularly.
Here are some more pics from my bday. See the brick oven behind matt's head? That is the place they are made. Also we had mozzarela capresa salad too which is my favorite. Then we went for gelato afterwards in Scottsdale. I had chocolate, bacio (choc hazelnut) and coconut. Soooooo Yummy!
Ok, so I feel like an old lady! I turned 37 years old on 4/14. I had a fun birthday. My friends to me out to The Good Egg to eat. I had a strawberry salad with a raspberry walnut dressing. Kauai surprised me and came home early from work with presents. I had a cinnamon roll for my birthday cake which was a yummy treat since I am on a no sugar plan right now for my health. Thursday, Matt (my bro) and Amy, along with Kauai and Ness (my sis) took me to my favorite resturant, Pizzeria Bianco which is famous here in Phx for specialty italian wood fired pizza. We ordered 4 different ones and 2 of one kind we all like.(they are plate size each). I will describe them: 1. red sauce, fresh basil leaves and fresh mozzarela (very scant amt) 2. homemade fennel sausage, sauted onions, small amount of white cheese. 3. 3 types of white cheese with fresh argula lettuces on top 4. pitaschios, red onion and parmesan cheese. Kauai rang in to some girls he knew from college. I will get their names when I see him later today and Matt ran in to some residents he is over at St joe's. It was fun and we enjoyed the quaint atmosphere. Matt arrived at 3:10 pm to get in line for us. The place does not open until 5 pm. When he got there, even two people were ahead of him. It is crazy the wait at this place. After we were seated, we heard them telling the end of the line that is was a 5 hour wait!!!!!!! They do take reservations but you have to call about 3 months in advance and it is only for a party of 6-10. Next year we will call ahead and plan. This is the 2nd year we have come here for my bday. It is worth the hassle!
Ok, so the I just love this picture of Bekah. I just laugh every time I see it. The second pic with matt is goofy. I thought he was going to lift his eyebrow like I did but he didnt! His pic looks good and I look kind of silly...
She really had a good time on Easter. She did over do it on the candy though. She just kept sneeking it all day! So far she is not sick today, the day after but she did as for candy for breakfast! Bad sign. She had lots of fun looking for the eggs, kauai helped her. She was talking a lot at Matt's house which every commented because usually she keeps quiet except for when she is at home. She forgot to wear her underwear to the park! She was a little immodest!
