oh, my lordy, what a sweet little girl

aubree just continues to melt my heart!
as i type she is fast asleep on the couch with baby bro.
just as she was about to fall asleep, she whispered..."mommy, i think i need to cough,
im afraid it will wake up my brother"
seriously, who does that???
im his mom and im sure i have never held in a cough sneeze or anything in fear of disturbing him.
i hope they always care for one another this much!

sick day pizza

aubree has been sick today
...well actually we all have.
she started doing "that thing" at about 6 am
then i started...
then griffin started...
she finally got an appetite at 5 o'clock..
what does she ask for???
now, i know pizza isn't a sick person food but who am i to deny her the only thing that sounds good to her poor little taste buds?
so i rummaged through the pantry and came up with some ingredients and this is what i threw together.
alyse's sick day pizza (cute huh?)
grease pizza pan
use one can of refrigerated pizza dough spread it on pan to desired thickness
spread about 1/2 cup pasta sauce from the jar on to uncooked crust
sprinkle with oregano, crushed red pepper, salt
i didn't have pepperoni so i thinly sliced some smoked sausage spread on crust
along with chopped green pepper and onion
cover, and i mean, cover, in cheese
bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes!! yum.
lets just hope she keeps it down!!!

Oh sweet little boys...

Ok, I love love love my Aubree
there is something about a little boy...
OH! They are so sweet :)
I have the pleasure of watching Mr.Silas today and let me just tell you---he is a doll!
I mean really, 3 kids in the house and I am sitting here blogging....
Aubree may or may not be wrapped around his little finger
and following him around like a little puppy but hey. whatever works!
Thank you, April, for letting us play with this sweet angel.
