lucky haircut january

Mory is four months old this month. Wyn turned three years old this month. My little ladies are growing much too quickly. At her four month appointment, Mory weighed in at 15 pounds, which is less than I thought she would weigh. Even though her weight is around the 70th percentile, she is short, so she seems chunkier. Wyn is dying to go to school, so I will be filling out registration for both her and Lucky at Preschool in the upcoming week. Speaking of Lucky, look at how shaggy he was getting! I tackled hm in the bathroom with the clippers and now he is a baldy. I kind of feel bad about making him a baldy in winter, since it is so cold, and I imagine having a buzzed head in freezing temps might suck. I wouldn’t know from experience. Ever since, he has been running a hand over his head and making a buzzing sound.

That picture of Wyn above was taken right before her brother shoved her into a door frame, giving her a big bloody lip. Since she couldn’t quite articulate what happened very well, she re-enacted it , complete with running into the doorjamb. She even did dramatic flair at the end with fake tears. Of course, the next day she looked awful. People do not give you nice looks when your kid has a black and blue face.I kind of have to shrug and say “hey, brothers happen”.

With February approaching, I am wondering, do preschoolers exchange valentines? Do I need to start cutting out construction paper hearts? It is a private school through church if that matters. or maybe i should start cutting out hearts anyway. We could use a little romance in chateau JAC. I am sure paper heats littering the dining room would be pretty classy.

Homemade Beef Bone Broth

Homemade Beef Bone Broth

Last summer we went in on a part of a local steer with some friends of our’s. Included in this purchase was a few roasts I had never cooked before because most supermarkets simply do not sell huge, fatty, bone-in cuts of meat. Which is a pity really, since those tend to be cheaper and more flavorful. I keep saving our bones and extra fat from these cuts and popping ….

Spinach Margarita Smoothie

Spinach Margarita Smoothie

What? Gross? Hey, don’t knock it til you try it. This super low calorie smoothie is great for reducing bloating and water retention. And no, it does not contain booze. Unless you want it to contain booze. However,  for water retention relief, I recommend you drink this in the morning and I’m not one to suggest booze for breakfast. That just sounds like a bad idea. Spinach Margarita Smoothie 2 ….

Homemade Lavender Coconut Sugar Scrub

Homemade Lavender Coconut Sugar Scrub

Dry winter skin, or patchy summer skin is a pain. Sometimes literally. In summer, my feet get dry and cracked from sandal wear and in winter my skin screams from being so dry and itchy. I am big on exfoliating. I find my face is much less flaky with a good sugar scrub three times per week. However, some of those lovely scented scrubs on the market are stupid expensive ….

Tomato Cauliflower Soup with Thai Basil

Tomato Cauliflower Soup with Thai Basil

Our Thai basil has flourished and it has become an outstanding addition to some of our go-to meals around here. I have been on a cauliflower kick lately. It has been looking very decent at the grocery market, and up here in winter, I like to take advantage of the rarity of good produce. Cauliflower is fabulous roasted or raw in salads, but lately I have been enjoying it as ….
