3 Faces

 I took out my camera to take a few pictures of Silas.
He walked up to me. Stopped. Gave me these 3 faces then walked away.




The middle one is cracking me up, I've never seen him make that face before. 
I guess he wanted to try something new.. :)

I love this kid! :)

Pizza Rolls

 I found this recipe recently HERE and I love it. Not only cause it taste oh so yummy but they are super handy to be able to freeze and stick in Henry's lunch for work!
  • Dough:
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 1/4 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 6 1/4 cups flour
  • Filling: 
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups pepperoni, finely chopped
  • 5 cups cheese, grated..I used half cheddar and half mozzarella
  • Topping:
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten for eggwash
  • Italian seasoning
  • cornmeal for sprinkling in cookie sheet (optional)
  1. To make the dough: stir together sugar, salt, oil, and warm water.
  2. Add flour and yeast and mix well. Start with 4 cups of flour and keep adding as needed.
  3. Knead well for 5 minutes.
  4. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk.
  5. Divide dough into 2 pieces and roll each out into a rectangle, approx 1/4" thick.
  6. Spoon half the sauce on each rectangle of dough, then sprinkle pepperoni and cheese on top.
  7. Roll up as you would for cinnamon rolls and pinch edges to seal.
  8. Place rolls in a parchment lined pan sprinkled with cornmeal. If you don't have a pan large enough you can make these rolls in smaller sizes. 
  9. Brush slightly beaten egg over the rolls and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  10. Bake at 400ยบ for 30 minutes, till golden brown.
* These rolls never seal completely for me and they kind of fall in after baking but nobody here seems to mind if some of the filling oozes out and the rolls flatten a bit:) 











Oh, and if you do decide to make these, make sure to watch out for the cheese thief! :)

12 months

I am a few day's late on this post but better late then never right? :)
Today was a little bit of a warmer day so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to take some outdoor photo's of Silas, He wasn't to happy about the whole idea but I did manage to get a few smiles out of him! Trying to do an indoor photo shoot with him is getting harder and harder, Silas and sitting still do not go together so well so anytime I can do outdoor photo's I grab it even if the photo shoot does last 5 mins....summer please come soon!

 How old:
12 Months. 

Weight:
22lbs

What's new?
His 8th tooth coming in.
He can spin in a circle 
And he can shake his head no...but he dosn't know what it means yet :) 

 What he loves: 
Food
Veggie tales silly songs
Patty cake
Drumming on everything and anything
Eating snow

 Night Sleep:
The last 4 weeks he has been sick so sleeping hasn't been great. But he finally is feeling back to himself this week so his nights are getting better again.

1 Year

One Year. I knew this day would come, and it is hard to believe it is here! My baby is 1 year's old!
 I will never forget when I saw him for the very first time, the first time I kissed his little cheeks, The first time I held him, the first time I gave him a bath. Being a parent is amazing, being able to watch Silas grow and see him learn and discover new things as he grow's has and is been so much fun! 



We had Silas birthday Party with our family's on Saturday.
and since we probably won't be doing much today, I thought I would share pictures from then.
I wasn't sure how he would do at his party, he has been sick and grumpy for the last 4 weeks with a nasty cold and teething (and thankful he is on the mend now)  before everyone got to his party he was not a happy camper! But as soon as his first guest arrived he put his happy face on and he had a blast! 







This was my fist attempt at decorating a cake. 
Let's just say there is a lot of icing holding the cake together.... :)

Nothin better then a good ol' co-op cake!

Silas received many fun gifts from all his family!







Smash cake time! I must say I am pretty proud of my boy, 
it took him only a few seconds to dig into his cake and he LOVED IT!

















We had a full house! It was a lot of fun! :)


After everybody left Silas enjoyed all his new toys, and his new pj's!

I know, I say enjoy and then post a picture of him crying...

Here..Now he is enjoying :)










I am so thankful for each day I get to spend with this dude. I can't wait to see what the next year holds, but I am okay if it goes slow...it is amazing how much faster life seems to go once you have a kid! 

Happy Birthday Si Bear!
We love you to the moon and back x a million!
