Project Life Tuesday // February 8-14


 Click here to view earlier Project Life posts.

February 8: Enjoying a sweet moment with Uncle Britt & Aunty Shana.

February 9: Papa loves to take the boys outside to check "the great outdoors." They love seeing the trucks go by, watching for birds, & listening to dogs bark. But most of all they love being together.

February 10: Elijah's first taste of a non-food item: Aunty Taryn's deodorant. Our first thought was "yuck!" Our second thought was "PANIC." And our third thought was "this has to be our picture of the day."

February 11: Isaiah has always loved books. Seeing him fall asleep part-way through this book was priceless.

February 12: As I was feeding Elijah peaches, he grabbed the fork right out of my hand & began to feed himself! Just another way he's showing us that he's growing up & wants to be a big boy.

February 13: In preparation for a special dinner with out-of-town family (the Reed's) we baked & decorated our traditional Valentines cookies. Isaiah is old enough to help me make them & his special job is to gently sprinkle cover them with sprinkles after they're frosted. They were delicious (& they were all gone by the next day)!

Recipe:
Mom's Sugar Cookies
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
       Mix butter, sugar, egg, & vanilla. Then add remaining ingredients. Cover & chill 2-3 hours before rolling out and cutting into shapes. Bake @ 375*F for 7-8 minutes. {pull from oven as soon as edges have barely turned brown}
Buttercream Frosting
  • 1/2 cup shortening & 1/2 cup butter {cream together]
  • {then add & mix} 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • {then add slowly & mix} 4 cups powdered sugar
  • {then add & mix} 2 tablespoons milk
February 14: Our Valentines day ended up being a crazy-busy day. Ross spoke at Victory Christian Fellowship in the morning, then afterwards we met some friends for lunch (while letting the kids play in the McDonald's play area). After the kiddos got up from their naps we were finally able to take some time to celebrate love as a family. There were lots of kisses & hugs & "I love you's!" We LOVE love.
