It's a................BOY!!!

We just found out our little peanut is a boy! His heart and everything else looked great, which we couldn't be more thrilled. Maylee and Ella are at my parent's right now, so we called and told them over speaker phone....Maylee started giggling hysterically and Ella started crying saying she wants another sister!!!!! Now it's really hard for me to start wrapping my head around blue! So different from pink!

Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes...aka plain good

I fixed these pancakes this morning for the girls, and I always forget how much they love them and how well they eat them. My mom gave me this awesome recipe and they not only taste great, they also are good for you! Thought I would share!

Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes

1 c buttermilk (or milk with 1T lemon juice or white vinegar)
3/4 c quick oats
1 T brown sugar
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg

I just mix together in a bowl, but if you want a smoother batter you can mix in the blender. I usually double the recipe and triple if Matt is eating with us!

Spaghetti O's

Lately I've been making our own spaghetti O's, just b/c I found the right pasta and I can make it without the high fructose corn syrup and all the other junk they can pack in a can. Thought I would share. Here is what you need...

Spaghetti O's

1 box O pasta (I found this kind at Tom Thumb and haven't seen it anywhere else)
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
Garlic salt/powder

Prepare pasta as directed. Everything else is pretty much to taste...put as little or as much as you like. Heat tomato sauce and I melt about 1/2 of the velveeta. Add garlic salt/powder to taste and then add pasta. There you go! You just might get a face like this!

So this past week we have really been recovering from our Disney World trip and Arkansas lake trip. They were back to back. Both were so much fun, but we have been worn out. We got back Sunday night and we had dance recitals and dress rehearsals on Monday and Tuesday. After that, we spent the rest of the week resting. It was nice.

The girls had so much fun a Disney World. Maylee said her favorite part was the Dumbo ride, and Ella said her favorite part was playinging in the pack'n'play with Maylee and Hadley! Go figure, right!! They really loved their princess make-overs and then eating in Cinderella's castle after that. Ella was kind of a punk/pop princess with rainbow colored hair and Maylee picked the traditional princess. My mom and dad came too, and they were such a huge help and we had so much fun. Oh, but if you are planning a Disney may want to avoid Memorial Day weekend and the first week of June. Let's just say you might have a lot of explaining to do...luckily our kids were oblivious. Wish we would have done a little more research though!!!!

The day after we got back the girls headed to the lake with Matt's parents, and then we left the next day to meet up with them. The lake was unusually warm and really nice. We had a great time.

Here are a few pics from Disney I have on my phone.
