The other day Lil and I were sitting at the kitchen table and out of nowhere we have this conversation:

Lil “Mom when is that special day for you and Dad?”

Me “What special day”

After a moment of thought “The day when you and Dad decided to not just be friends anymore, but to be a family.”

Awe, I think that’s the perfect description for getting married. I love how her mind works.

These pictures don’t have anything to do with this conversation except that they are of Lil. I just wanted to add them.

My newest kick is making yogurt. I found a nice yogurt maker at a thrift store and my obsession started.
Since we don’t give Lil cow’s milk I started out making rice milk yogurt, that didn’t work so well. Next I tried almond milk yogurt, sill nope. So we decided to try cow’s milk. I mean we give her regular milk yogurt all the time, I just thought it’d be nice to cut out that one last bit of cow’s milk. I can’t be upset about this cool milk container though.

Here’s the milk cooling in the water bath.

The yogurt is still in the maker so I have no idea if it’s going to work or not.

Even though I posted a video of Lil enjoying her french toast I had to include this picture.

We made valentine’s day cookies this week.

Lil insisted that we have lips for valentine’s day. In order to get the lips I had to buy a set with a mustache and glasses. Lil loved them.

The Valentine Princess is busy at work icing cookies.

All the best Valentine Princesses have bunny tails.

Some of our finished cookies.

Waldo wanted a mustache cookie, I traded him for a picture. We decided that he’d make a great cartoon villain. 🙂

I made shampoo bars. And I love them. So far anyway.

Last Saturday was Waldo’s birthday. He wanted molten lava cake. I had a lot of fun researching recipes and figuring out what I wanted to make. Then we made a test recipe early last week just to make sure it was going to work out. Oh what a week. Let me tell you, molten lava cake rocks.

Lily loved the Lava cake too. We decided to forgo powered sugar on top and whipping cream and had mint brownie ice cream instead.

Lily’s very into dressing herself (when she does get dressed, when we are at home it’s pajamas all the time, which is fine with me) and doing it with style. This was her crazy outfit. Even the shoes don’t match. LOL.

We did some valentine’s stamping the other day. I carved a potato and was very impressed if I do say so myself.

She also stamped with the cut end of a celery bunch. The paint brush was her being silly.

This is Lily and Lucy Buttercup. Lily drew Lucy Buttercup and a robot.

Lily and Teacup. I think the drawing is Lily as a magician and Teacup has bows on her head and tail.

These pictures are from all over January 2014.

Yesterday morning I wanted to make bread and asked Lil to help me. She dumped some ingredients in and this is the dough after the first rise.

After she put in those few ingredients she wanted to draw. Works for me.

She loves to draw on foil with sharpies.

“A house full of family”

The baked bread. I don’t think any local bakers are going to be worried I’ll take their jobs, but it’s great bread.

Lil buttered some of the homemade bread for dinner.

As an aside, see my cute butter bell? It was a thrift store steal at $1.99. Yay!

Lil called me into the bedroom to see her little house. I can’t decide if Lemon Meringue pissed off the Godfather or if there’s some bestiality going on.

I apparently missed the section in the instruction on how to keep clean while you dyed pasta for crafts.

The other day Lil told me “Mom take a picture of just my eye”

Here’s some fun ice cube painting.

We get all kinds of dressed up to make pizza at our house. Or at least Lil does.

I’m not sure big on the selfie, but I liked my hair this day.

And this one was just for fun.

I don’t know who’s the better sport; Tiger or Papa. Either way Lil’s a lucky girl.

Kitty takes babysitting very seriously.

I guess the best way to start posting is to post so I figured I’d start with my standard Friday Random Mobile post.  These pictures are from the last few weeks.

Hot chocolate

Lily needed to potty so we ran into a coffee shop and I felt weird about not buying anything so I got a hot chocolate that Lil and I shared. And by share I mean that she drank 90% of it of course.

Homemade pizza

We love food and eating out is our favorite past time. Lately we have been working on eating out less to save money and for health reasons. I love cooking and making things from scratch is one of my favorite things to do so that’s what we’ve been concentrating on the last few weeks.  I made a super easy pizza crust and used some frozen sauce I made a while ago and we had crazy awesome pizza.

Homemade pizza

Lil doesn’t like red sauce so we use ranch on hers.

Homemade pizza

Lil’s pizza.

Homemade pizza

Ours. Yum!

Kitty nursing her 'litter'

Lily decided that Kitty needed to feed her babies.

And more decided that looked good and joined in.

Our new ride

We bought a new car. Well car type thing really.

Our new ride

A brand new 2014 Honda CRV. We love it.

Waldo really didn’t want me to take this picture.
