Our driveway now is a lot longer than the kids are used to. This means we have lots more room for sidewalk chalk, riding bikes, car races, or playing soccer in the front yard, digging in the dirt...whatever, Nolan and William are having a blast exploring the extra space. We have had DAYS of rain, so our backyard is still soaking wet. Here's a few snapshots of my love bugs :)

We are finally moved into our new home...5 houses down from our old one in Bayou View! Whoo hoo!! The kids love it as much as Eric and I do and it fits our family perfectly!! What a blessing :) Nolan & William's favorite part about the new home is the backyard. Eric set up the slip n slide the first night we got them back from my in-laws (who graciously watched them for a few days) and they had a blast. Daddy had just as much fun too :)

For the past month I have incorporated Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint Cookbook into our lives and we are loving some of the recipes. I made his chili burgers on Sunday night and they were a huge hit! I wanted to share the recipe. Enjoy!
1 small can diced green chiles
1 pound organic ground meat or bison
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
4 fried eggs
Garnish: Avocado slices
In a bowl mix the diced chiles with meat, cilantro, onion, spices and salt. Form into burgers and grill (I used our George Foreman grill). While the burgers are grilling, fry the eggs. Serve the fried eggs on top of the burgers and garnish with sliced avocado. Bon Appetit!

Nolan turned 3 years old today. It has been a busy year, full of tons of firsts, but his biggest growth year physically and developmentally. Nolan is definitely Type I personality...always socializing, having fun, and playing with others. He gets sad if we go to the park or splash pad and no kids are there :) He is still my snuggle bug, always wants to love on you, hug, and sit next to me in the morning while he drinks his milk. Nolan is very chatty at this age and has lots of questions...all the time! He loves his trains and trucks and watching Rory the racing car, Mickey Mouse, and anything Thomas! Nolan loves the pool, and is so excited about riding his new bike. He's a good big brother to William and has a very close relationship with his daddy. He's so special and we are blessed by his sweet ways everyday. He loves his grandparents so much and we are thankful to live so close now.
Nolan celebrated his birthday yesterday at the Kangarooz bounce house with 11 of his closest friends. He had a blast!!!
