the Saturday I didn't plan
Izzie and Maddie playing at their table.
Maddie digging through the toy box.
Maddie was so tired last night that she crashed here on the pillow right before bedtime.
Maddie with Bunny. It's her lovey and she's starting to carry it all the time.
Well, it's official. We are lame. Staying out late to party really did us in. The only saving grace is, that we are both getting over colds. I actually even took a nap today. An hour and half long nap. For those who know me, I have to be 100% completely exhausted to slow down enough to take a nap. I'm too much like my Mema. I've got to be going goin going all day long. I took my nap, then John and I switched posts and he took a nap. Thank goodness the girls have been mostly cheerful and great today.
Our plans were to decorate for Christmas today. That did not even come close to happening. I'm completely okay with that. I'd rather be relaxed and catch up on sleep than feel obligated to decorate for the holidays. I mean, I love Christmas decorations, and I get excited to put them up in our house, but if it doesn't happen this year, it won't be the end of the world. I'm pretty sure we will get to it, it just didn't happen today.
I did get some more baby food made. I was so completely out that it's taken a couple days in a row to catch up. I actually made a finger food instead of a puree this evening. It sounds gross, but was actually tasty (I like to taste what I'm making my girls eat!) I made savory broccoli-cheese pancakes. They turned out great. I can tear them up and it'll give the girls something healthy to eat on their own.
My Broccoli-Cheese pancakes. I spread them out on a cookie sheet and freeze. When they are completely frozen I put them in a ziptop bag. That way they don't freeze together and I can bring out one or two, put them in the microwave or toaster oven and don't have to use all of them at once.
1 tbsp melted butter
1 cup pureed broccoli
2/3 cup wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup shredded cheese
splash of milk (if needed to thin out, depends on how thick your puree is)
Mix all ingredients. Spoon dallops on a flat cooktop. Flip when bubbles appear.
