As I've mentioned before, Lizzie is a baker at heart. She LOVES to cook with me, which I really love. Today she woke up and said, let's make cupcakes and I said let's make caramel apple cheesecake bars (a recipe I have been eyeballing for sometime now). In the morning, after breakfast, is the time we usually take to prepare a dessert for after dinner. We don't normally pop it into the oven until we are sitting at the table eating dinner- that way it's fresh but this one you serve cool so cooking it in the morning was perfect.
To go on with Time spent well, aside from my attempts at running while pushing my kids in the stroller, we have another regular exercise routine we like to do- Have any of you tried "Just Dance 2"??
More recently, there's been more time spent outside playing and working hard. The kids playing...
(Haha! I should've cropped my skinny chicken legs out of this picture)
...and the guys doing all the hard work.
Other than that, Lizzie is going through her little girl phase of Not wanting to help me clean. (she used to be so good about it or maybe now it's just Not wanting to clean when I want her to clean). Lincoln likes to double my load by his enjoyment of pulling the dishes out as I put them in and pulling my clothes apart just as I fold them. Boys will be boys and girls will be girls. All included...I LOVE MY JOB!
Sorry there's no update on the running for now- I hurt my back and it has consumed my thoughts. The moment I think of doing anything physical, my Back reminds me how much it hurts--when did I get so old?!
So, these are things my day consists of most often and I wouldn't change a thing!
