The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Fancy fancy...

Do yourself a favor and don't EVER make this "Fancy Macaroni" from The Pioneer Woman!  Seriously people, I'm telling you, do NOT do it.  Because if you do, you can kiss your size 6's goodbye and start shopping at the big and hefty store.  I know that all things are okay in moderation, but you'll find yourself at the gourmet food store on the other side of town, buying cheeses in bulk specifically with this macaroni in mind.  You'll dream about the various flavor combinations you could create.... would bleu cheese go well with the goat cheese, or should I stick with the Dubliner?  If God eats, I promise this is on the menu in heaven at least once a week!  I mean seriously, if I were God (the world would be a mess, but that's not the point) I would have three cheese macaroni with bacon, and butter, and bacon drippings, and onions and..... every single day of the week.  Cause if I was God, that stuff would be so darn healthy you could thrive on it and broccoli would be fattening and clog your arteries, but again, I'm just sayin'.  But trust me, don't make it!  Okay fine, but I warned you!

And these aren't edited yet, but I couldn't help proving the point that we actually DID get some snow around these parts.... finally.....

The pile of clothes that welcomed guests to my sister-in-law's always tidy and neat home!  Bwahahahaha.... all part of my evil plan to force her to live like we do! hehehe


My GORGEOUS niece, seriously, think Boden is looking for models?  



Liam, little stinker!  This is what he does when I say "smile"...



And last but not least, this is what our little Russian princess thought of the cold snowy sledding experience.  :(

I totally can relate to Meg and the snow sledding...it's just too cold. I don't like being cold.

She is a beauty!

You almost did this early pregnant momma in with that mac-n-cheese description! I had to jump down a bit and quick! BUT, give me four more weeks and I'll be back!!! :)

Oh, that mac and cheese sounds divine! I read the PW's recipe the other day and my mouth started drooling!! I have to agree with Meg and her feelings on the snow and cold. :) I keep telling Caroline that Nana has lots of snow and we are going to see her next week, but she doesn't get the fact that the snow will be gone. ;) Great pics!!!!

Really?! I don't need any help gaining weight; I seem to be doing a great job on my own!! And, now I have to dream about mac & cheese.

When are you going to post pictures of your renovations? I want to see your house.
