Due Date a year ago?

Yup, a year ago. I drove myself to my 40 week doctors appt and had a pretty normal day.
But, I haven't been able to wear this shirt again. Nothing wrong with it. Something about delivering a baby while wearing it makes me keep skipping over it this summer...Maybe tomorrow I'll put it on for a photo.

Cannon Beach 8/7/10 Nana's Birthday

Kaylee and Norah on the beach! This was Kaylee's first beach trip and Norah's second.

It was a little cool and we had a few sprinkles, so basically your typical OR coast weather.
It was Nana's birthday! She was trying her hand at flying George's trick kite, and she did pretty well!
Norah had a lot of fun climbing on Nana's chair.
Kaylee enjoyed carrying handfuls of sand to different people.

It was a really fun trip! We left around 9:30am on Saturday after some issues with our car. (Both brake lights were burnt out!) Norah stayed awake all but the last 15mins of the drive, then stayed up the whole day! That made for one tired baby, considering she woke up at 6:30am. We spend a few hours at the beach, had lunch and played in the sand. Nana and the guys flew kites, Jamie and I played with the girls and tried to prevent them from eating all the sand on the beach. We also walked around town and window shopped for a while. We ended our day with dinner at Mo's!

Green Bean and Sausage Chili

We have a green bean chili recipe that is really yummy. I though I was going to make it last night, but after looking around the kitchen we were lacking some pretty major ingredients. So we just improvised! It turned out soooo sooo good. If you would like to try it, I thought I would write it down before I forget what we put in it!

1 lb sweet italian sausage
4-5 cups chopped fresh green beans (cut to 1-2inch pieces)
1 can kidney beans
1 jar spaghetti sauce (4-6 large tomatoes would be better)
2 large onions
1 Tbsp dry basil (fresh basil would be great too)
1 Tbsp chili powder
2-3 tsp Montreal steak seasoning
Sour cream to top it off

Brown the sausage in a big stew pot. Add chopped onions and stir around until they soften a little. Then just dump the rest of the stuff in! Simmer until the green beans are done. Top with sour cream, or not, but we like sour cream over here!


Jamie and Kaylee were here yesterday and stayed for dinner. It ended up being pretty late so we just bathed the girls together and Kaylee borrowed some bigger jammies I had stored away for Norah.
Too Cute.

I always though my sister's and my childern would look a like. I'm constently suprised at how different they are. Then I dug up a pic of Jamie and I when we were little. Our kids may not look much like each other, but they sure look like their mommies!

Sharing is Caring!
