February Wrap-Up

During February, Adam grew a lot. He's crawling super fast and cruising (his new nickname is "Scooter")

My valentine brought me flowers...

Adam grew some more...

David reclaimed a watch, whose owner grew up.

Josh got some 'unnawher" for Valentine's Day.

We made valentines for each other...

And we fought with the Sword of the Spirit.
And we celebrated 6 years with our favorite girl in the world.

Dabney's Birthday Part 2

Can I ask a quick question?

Which font header do you like better? The one as header or the one in this post?

Dabney Turned 6! Part 1

Our dear girl turned 6 years old last Saturday!

I made her favorite breakfast~ orange juice, and homemade egg mcmuffins and hashbrowns.
After breakfast, Daddy took her on a date to Starbucks for hot chocolate.

And of course, we took a bowling trip later that afternoon.

The kids bowled really well! We bowl at each birthday and I guess they're finally getting the hang of it!

It was so great to have Uncle James here. What a treat to have him all to ourselves for Dabney's big day!

For dinner Dabney requested mac and cheese, chicken fingers, peas and party hats on all of her family...

Tomato Paste Tip

I think buying canned tomatoes in warehouse stores like Sam's and Costco are some of the best deals in the entire store. However, using the entire can in one cooking session is usually out of the question. Generally, when I open a can of diced tomatoes or tomato sauce I generally seal the remainder up in a freezer bag and tuck it into the depths of the deep freeze, but I've recently found a better way for tomato paste. I found that I have a spring loaded disher that will hold exactly one ounce of tomato paste. (Yeah, I had to use my kitchen scale the first time I did it.) I scooped out an entire gigantic can of tomato paste onto two sheet pans and froze it just like you see it above. Once they're frozen, I seal them up in a freezer bag and pull out perfect 1 ounce portions of tomato paste whenever I need them.

P.S. Small cans of tomato paste equal 6 ounces, and large cans of tomato paste equal 12 ounces.
