6 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
3 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla
In a shallow bowl beat together eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. Dip bread slices into egg mixture, coating both sides. In a skillet or on a griddle melt butter over medium heat. Add bread slices and cook until golden brown. Serve with butter and syrup.
We will not be going back to regular french toast after eating this.

I found out that I was having a boy, then I found out it was twins, then I found out that boy of mine was going to have a brother to keep him company. So just in case you couldn't follow that, I was 17 weeks pregnant and went to find out the sex of the baby. They told us it was a boy, then we saw another head and found out we were having twins. Then we found out that baby was also a boy. Needless to say we were shocked and still are when we sit back and think about it but I wouldn't have it any other way!
Last year on this day, I made my very first blog post about this very topic. I might not be posting as frequently because we aren't able to get our Internet hooked up until Monday. But no fear when I am back I will have lots of pictures and projects to share of the new house!

Honey Chicken Skewersby: Real Simple Magazine
1/2 cup ketchup
2 Tbs. honey
1 Tbs. Worcestershire
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
Soak your skewers in water and heat the grill on med-med high. Combine first 3 ingredients in bowl and set aside (you can adjust the amounts to your taste - we like a little extra worcestershire). Slice chicken lengthwise into 1/2 in. strips and thread onto skewers (or you can do smaller pieces like we did). Season with a little salt and pepper if you want. Cook the chicken turning occasionally until cooked thorough 6-8 minutes.During the last 2-3 minutes of cooking baste with the ketchup mixture.
Sides: For the zucchini, you just salt and pepper, put a little oregano, and drizzle with olive oil. I put them in a basket and put them on the grill.
I know my last recipe involved chicken and zucchini. All I can say about that is... my kids are getting pickier and when I find something they like I have to get creative and learn how to fix it numerous ways. I promise not all the recipes I will post will involve chicken and zucchini.

- The boys found a gift basket with shredded paper and dumped it all over the floor, drug it all over the house and then proceeded to rip it into even smaller pieces. Ok so maybe I could forget this...because I still am finding pieces everywhere.

Grant says "thank you" all the time these days. He tells me thank you when I give him food, when he gives me stuff and even when he steals toys from his brother he is polite enough to thank him for the toy he has just stolen. Gabe does not find this the least bit polite though.
Gabe loves to cry for me in the morning and then when I go get him, he crawls to the corner of his crib where I can't reach him. If you remember this post where I turned their cribs around, you will understand why it is hard to get him out. It usually ends in me climbing in the crib to drag him out, bet you all would like a pic of that, huh? How about a pic of the sweet baby instead? I forgot to mention, he also likes to undress himself too.
