It's just the two of us so we find ten that have lids...this was a challenge in itself.
The first week we did this we used halos aka cuties, celery, and carrots.
The second week we used red grapes, carrots, and green peppers.
Drew likes the Fit and Active strawberry banana yogurt. This is cheaper than the Greek yogurt.
We usually take leftovers from dinner the night before or we make turkey wraps on Sunday night that can be easily pulled to go in our lunches.

At church last Sunday our preacher taught on forgiveness. Here is a verse that stood out to me:
King James Version (KJV)
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Isaiah 40:31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
65 diapers any size works (I used size 1 here)
Circle piece of cardboard
Paper towel roll
Rubber bands small and large
Ribbon skinnier than your other
Cake topper (shoes)
Hot glue/double sided tape
1. Roll diapers bind with small rubber bands. Make sure to roll any design on inside.
3. Tape paper towel roll to circle cardboard piece.
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon Stonemill garlic powder
1/4 cup Reggano Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Wrap your baking sheet in tin foil. (For less clean up.)
3. Wash your sweet potatoes and slice into desired shape (the thinner the better I tried French fries and it was really difficult for me to cut so I stuck to sliced)
4. Place potatoes into olive oil and place on covered baking sheet.
5. Evenly coat potatoes in salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Parmesan cheese.
6. Bake for 20 minutes. Take out and flip.
7. Set oven to broil and cook to your liking. I usually only leave in under broiler for 3 minutes.
When I originally started this blog I wanted it to be something that I used to journal what was going on in our lives. Not only has it been that, but it has been a way for me to share so much more . A big part of my life is my relationship with Christ. After praying about what to share and what I wanted to journal about I am hoping to post uplifting verse's that I have found encouraging throughout my walk with Christ. Today's verse was found yesterday while Drew and I were reading through Matthew.
King James Version (KJV)
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
A good friend of mine's father passed away last week and this verse really struck home with me. At the time of the incident I did not have a really good verse to send or to pray on. I am hoping if I keep these in my blog I and others will have something to refer to. My hope is that they will become a part of my memory verse's as well.
Countdown began long before we left for Disney.
Porter did great on the non stop flight. Here is Drew carrying Porter at the airport.
Thursday we went to Magic Kingdom. It was pretty busy at first but it rained after Porters nap so most people were leaving as us crazy people in our ponchos were coming back.
Here is our stroller with a makeshift poncho on top.
We stayed pretty dry.... Stopped raining by the light parade.
Great first family trip to Walt Disney World.
We made this 'hand'made calendar for our families for Christmas this year. Started early to have different sizes. Printed the calendars on publisher. Used the cheap washable paint at Hobby Lobby, this paint is safe for babies. Laminated and bound together at Office Depot.
Here is how it turned out:
