He's our picky eater and we were always trying to encourage him to try new things.  We put vegetables on his plate, he doesn't always eat them, but always ask him to try.  Tonight after many attempts of trying sweet potatoes he had a large spoonful on his plate.  He was allowed to add some sugar to them if he wanted and he sprinkled a bit and took a good bite. Then exclaimed that these sweet potatoes taste just like a cinnamon bun.  So now he will eat sweat potato cinnamon bun!!!

He's growing up quickly and it's hard to understand how quick the last 5 years have flown by.

First week of Ski Season

The boys and I were able to get out 3 days for a few hours.
Every day it was beautiful and sunny
You can't really see that the hill drops nearly straight down over the ledge....

Another Year

Hoping to start the new year off on a good/better foot than the past years.... No big cake to eat for breakfast all week long.  More of a healthy balance diet for everyone in our home.  About 6 months ago we decided to give the Whole 30 diet a chance.  The results were fabulous.  We both felt drastically better, we had less joint pain, clearer younger looking skin, better sleep lead to more energy and without any additional effort we both lost nearly 20 pounds.
Last Hurrah before Whole 30

  And just a few after Whole 30
