T.V. Shows

What  T.V. shows do you or your kids watch? Ellison loves the following...

Curious George
Daniel Tiger
Doc Mc Stuffin
Bubble Guppies

These are her top 3 I would say. She likes to watch cooking shows with me too!

What T.V. shows do you watch? I watch the following shows. I DVR all of these so when I have down time at night I can have something to watch on T.V.

Grey's Anatomy
Law and Order SVU
Criminal Minds
Rachael Ray
The Ellen DeGeneres

I am always looking for new shows to watch for both of us. I would love it if you would leave comments with new suggestions of some of your favorites.

Living room

New love seat


Chaise lounge ( Ellison's "furniture bed")

Next on the list for the living room is a new area rug. I have been looking for a long time and have not found something that I like that is not over $500 so I have decided to have one made. I will be able to get a 8x10, which will be great because we could use it to be a little larger. I was very surprised at how reasonable it is to have one made from a carpet remnants. I also need to get some more pillows to go with my new orange and red ones!

Turkey dog muffins

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. They are kind of like corn dogs. You use a cornbread muffin mix and hot dogs. The other night it was just Ellison and I for dinner so I though we would give them a try.
 Corn bread mix and turkey dogs ready to go to the oven 

all done!
We ate them with ketchup and they tasted great. I think next time I will cut up the turkey dogs and mix them in with the batter, and then scoop them in the muffin tins. Ellison loved them, I am sure that I will make them again.

Few pics

 Ellison was helping my Dad and Josh get a trailer from a friends storage unit and,
 Ellison found a "little" friend.

 She was so proud of he tower!

Spaghetti all over her face, but lots made it in her tummy.
 Sound asleep in the car on the way home from MOMS and the grocery store. She is holding on tight to some artificial flowers from a MOMS project we did at the start of the year. Thursday was my last MOMS and I can't wait for it to start again next year. It was so much fun and I meet some wonderful new ladies. Plus I got to spend extra mom only time with my friend Katie. :)
 I love when I am home and can spend lots of time with my little helper and side kick.

We are hoping to start painting Ellison's new "big girl" room soon. I am having a hard time picking the right color yellow. I would like it to be light and not to yellow. Her bedding in yellow, green and pink. All of her furniture is going to be white! The trim in the room is white as well.She is very excited to sleep in a big girl bed. If you can see in the picture I have put little * on my top picks. I would love your help picking too!

Fresh and New

New look what do you think???
Last week Josh was home so he could entertain Ellison. So I got to get a project done that I have been wanting to do for a long time. Ta-Da! This is my before and after of the line closet project. I love to see them side by side. I did the whole thing for $14.00 and it only took about 1 hour. I have to find some cute tags and then it will be complete. Next up the bathroom closet... Have your done any good cleaning/organizing projects?

We had a good weekend, Josh worked the whole time so Ellison and I had lots of girl time. On Saturday we got to celebrate my twin sisters Barb and Lisa's birthday, with almost the whole family. We went to Crazy Horse for dinner. It was great to see everyone and spend time with them. Ellison loves to go out for dinner and seemed to have a lot of fun playing with the "salad" that came on everyone's plates. Sunday morning we went to my cousins church to celebrate there son Lucas's baptism. It was fun to go to a different church and spend time with more family. I was not sure how Ellison would do in a new nursery but she did great. Ellison loves to play with her boy cousins Isaac and Sam. :) We sold our old living room furniture that was Josh's and he has had since before we got married it was "well loved". Right now our living room looks very bare. Hopefully we will have new to us furniture tonight. Thursday morning is my last MOMS day. I have really enjoyed being able to go this past year. I am sad to see it end, and wished it would keep going. I am already looking forward to next year! Have a good rest of your week! ~Anne

WOW! It has been forever since I have done a post. My reason is that I never get on the laptop anymore. I am always on my phone or the ipad. That all being said I think that I am going to try hard to get on here and blog more. Ellison is 2.5 years old and full of life. She is talking all the time and her vocabulary is growing everyday. She loves to help Josh and I do everything. She runs on full energy all day and then crashes for naps in the afternoon then wakes up and is go go go until bedtime. She loves her dog ESPN he is her "buddy". She loves to play with her dolls kitchen set and her favorite is playing doctor. She is the joy of our life, both of us love it when we have a day off to are able to be home with her. When we are working she goes to Nana's house. Ellison loves to spend time with her Nana, they are always going on an adventure. Ellison had her tonsils out in early February things went pretty well. She was amazing while in the hospital overnight. We tried out best to make the whole experience fun. We are in the process right now of changing our guest room into Ellison's new big girl room. We are painting the walls and all the doors and furniture that we have for her. It is a process but it is going to be great when it is all done. Today I organized our linen closet. It only took me about 1 hour and I spent $14.00 at the dollar store on bins and baskets. I love to have things all organized. My next project is the bathroom closet. I hope that everyone has a great rest of your week. P.S. If you are still reading the blog I am sure you surprised (Katie);)
