Sunrise Smoothie

We've been drinking a lot of smoothies around here lately!  We LOVE them! :-)  It's fun to try out lots of different recipes.  We came to the end of smoothie making ingredients and put together what we had left...this is what we came up with!  And it was DELICIOUS! :-)

Sunrise Smoothie

1 cup orange juice
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cups frozen peaches
1 banana
6-8 baby carrots, sliced in half

Blend until smooth.  If you don't use frozen peaches, you'll need to use 4-6 pieces of ice depending on how thick you want it.  Enjoy!

Looking for a fun Rainy Day Activity? Here's one for you!

The month of March was a pretty awful one for me.  It started off with a wonderful trip to Oregon although part of that trip was for a sad reason.  The next 3 weeks however were less than...  Less than wonderful.  Less than easy.  Less than ideal.

I came home from Oregon feeling a bit sick, I thought I had caught a stomach bug.  After a week of being on and off sick it got worse and after talking to some people, 2 visits with the dr., and 1 visit with the surgeon it was determined I needed to have my gallbladder removed.  Let me just tell you...NOT FUN!  I told people I didn't know what I was expecting but it sure as heck wasn't the recovery that followed.  Paula is pretty sure this all just proves that I am, in fact, a wimp!

One of the days that we had some lovely rainy weather I was feeling like the world's worst mother, whatever was going on was making it impossible for me to eat without being sick so I was just not eating.  That of course made for not a whole lot of energy.  I felt like we were doing nothing at all fun and we were doing way to much snuggling while watching TV.

So this particular day (the 12th...apparently I was out of it enough that I couldn't get the date right on Morgan's poster) I decided we were going to do something fun so I broke out the paints and the roll of Ikea's Mala Drawing Paper (link here) and rolled it across the table (using the awesome Pick Your Plum washi tape (here - if they don't have it today keep watching because they have it often) to secure it) and let them have at it.

They loved it, it was such an easy activity that brought them a full hour of fun!  Mr. Morgan and I used some of that time to practice his sight words (I don't even think he knew he was doing homework!)

Miss Lila and I had fun naming colors and making some shapes.

I had to giggle at the end how different their plates looked.  Missy had all her colors mixed and all over the place and Mister had his pretty separate and orderly.

When they were all done and their art had time to dry I hung them on wall so they could show off what they had done to Nate and their older siblings.

If you're looking for a fun way to spend an hour break out the paper and the paints and have at it!
