Crepes for breakfast

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

So I know I’ve confessed to not knowing what to make for breakfast. And I’m still working on it. But the other day I made crepes for Jordan for breakfast, and I even surprise myself by enjoying it. Crepes with strawberries and freshly whipped cream. The recipe is a Julia Child’s recipe. After you put […]

Does anyone else struggle with breakfast?

Friday, January 11th, 2019

I know I do. I struggle with creativity, I dislike too much repetition, and I feel like I don’t necessarily know from one minute to the next whether I’ll want a sweet breakfast or a savory breakfast. Well the other day, we happened to stop at a well known fast food place (that I won’t […]

Cheese and Crackers

Friday, May 20th, 2011

So, Jordan, Julie Huigens and I had a cheese, cracker and fruit dinner. It was quite good, and she was inspiring when it came time to really make things nice. We cleared the table, and set out the white table cloth, the deep red napkins, and I pulled out some crystal glasses that I bought […]

Dinner in Catalina

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Last night, all of the Peterson kids (minus Jordan, he was working), Lydia and I headed up to Catalina to Grandma and Grandpa Peterson’s house to see Brian MacDonald (SP?). Let me see if I can explain the family ties…Jordan’s Dad is cousin to Brian’s wife. Simple enough? It was neat to see a professional […]

So Friday, I went shopping with Lydia and Lilliana (As I have done shopping by myself, but it is easier and makes for a happier baby when there is an assistant.) We went to Food City, Arizona’s Mexican grocery chain, and a really good place to get inexpensive produce. Sunflower (Also another stop on the […]

New pictures of Lydia

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Lydia has been “Social smiling”. She has the most beautiful dimples ever! 🙂 I didn’t think being a mother was going to be so rewarding (as well as this much work!!) It is a challenge at times, but even cherries have pits, strawberries have hulls, apples have seeds, and watermelon…wait…you can get seedless watermelons now! […]

Life is grand!
