I've been asked before about when we think we'll STOP calling these two little ones, "the babies"? We've called them that for SO long now, that the term has just kind-of stuck around.
And even though they are two-and-a-half and three years old now (and definitely no longer babies) they are still affectionately called that by most of our friends and family.
So until we come up with something else, these two will forever be known as "the babies"!
However, when I look at this picture, which I snapped right before church yesterday,
I see anything BUT babies.
They are growing up fast and changing right before my very eyes!Here they are exactly two years ago...
so little and oh SOOOOOOO very cute!
My home time flies;)
Okay, so on a TOTALLY different note I wanted to post this yummy crock pot recipe. It's no secret about how much I love my crock pot. I use it throughout the week, but on Sundays, it's a definite MUST!!!! I LOVE throwing my meal in before we head out for church and by the time my hungry crew walks back in the door that afternoon, lunch is DONE!!!
No prep, no mess, and only one pot to clean up after!
Totally can't beat that!!!
Yesterday we had THIS.
It's definitely not a new recipe,
BUT it's a goodie.
On Sunday afternoon, after we got lunch cleaned up, and the babies down for their naps, I got to hang out with this little cutie. Like I've said before, Riley is my little crafting buddy. He loves drawing, coloring, and creating!
Ahh..a boy after my own heart;)
A new craft store opened up close to our home and I was dying to check it out. When Ri found out where I was going, he was begging to go too!
So off we went. I ended up purchasing some material for the 16 pairs of Christmas PJ'S I am making this year, and Ri ended up with a package of M&M'S.
I'd say we were BOTH happy;)
And while we were out shopping, these two did a fine job holding down the fort! Every Sunday afternoon, this is a typical scene you would find in our home...my two biggest boys, cuddled up on the couch, cheering on their favorite football team, and keeping their fingers crossed for a victory!
Thankfully yesterday, our Carolina Panthers were FINALLY able to bring home a WIN!!!
