This week!!

We had a lovely little low key post Easter week.

We could live at Barnes and Noble and the library.

The kids adore it.

Don’t mind my tween taking a giant stanley to school.

Tennis is Emilia’s favorite sport so far!

My dad showed up with this ginormous coconut cream pie from a local diner.

And our whole weekend was spent watching Emilia’s spring play!! She was in the The Little Mermaid and has been working so hard since January!

We had all the snacks to keep this guy occupied.

She was SO good and just loves this. She loves to sing so much and it is super fun for her because they usually do Disney junior performances.

Max’s turn to sit through her shows after she sits through his hockey games!!

She is the sweetest girl ever.

She had two performances and got all these flowers from friends and family. We all adore her.

And now onto a new week!

Happy Easter!

These little chicks are my favorite!

Just started the week out with a nature walk.

One of the outfits Emilia put together this week.

We had some gorgeous skies!

Getting out the spring break energy.

Emilia tetris!

I mean OMG.

I love watching Emilia play tennis.

She loves it too!

Also just a bit obsessed with this boy.

We went to the mall to ride the easter train with Cooper! Max said “I don’t think nine year olds ride the train…”

The lego store also had an easter egg hunt which was fun.

Just starting her young with my obsessions, you know.

Also had to document this outfit!! I did not know she had that on, haha.

‘Tis the season for fruit platters on repeat.

Also still making a big batch of sourdough waffles every week because it’s what the kids are eating before school!

The eggmazing reigns supreme.

Even Jordan loved it!

Then we went on a little family date.

The happiest girl alive.

One last friday fish sandwich!

Jordan refused to take a pic with him in his matching shirt. We tried!!

He was being hilarious and ornery.

Little better!

Max trying his best “teeth” smile.

Eddie did his annual easter egg hunt for the kids early saturday morning.

Emilia helps me feed my sourdough starter every morning and night! She has it down.

Deviled egg prep.

Easter bunny time!

Cutest little bunny.

I’ve managed to avoid blippi until the third child. He loves him.

Emilia wanted “hair curls.”

Jordan is the highlight of our lives!! We all fawn over him constantly and can’t help it.

It was so bright and sunny!! No complaints.

Bros. With matching haircuts!

This might be my favorite dress she has ever worn.

And then we had a big easter brunch! I didn’t get to take pics but we had my overnight croissant bake, creme brulee french toast, ham and turkey, all the works for sandwiches, cheesy potatoes, a huge salad, deviled eggs and more dessert than we could handle. Yay Easter!

When he sees a picture of himself now, he says “that’s Max!”

We had a big hockey weekend with playoffs.

Emilia had basketball!

Her perfect little jump though!

Ate all the snacks at all the games.

We looooove watching Max.

Wiped out after with snuggles.

Emilia and I made two batches of joy’s dad’s cookies this week!

Baby friend date!

Coffee too.

Marshmallow latte. It was so good.

The kids LOVE to bring all the pillows and blankets into our room on the floor and watch a movie. This is what Jordan did when I was getting ready and the kids were at school! So precious.

Little spa day date while Max was at hockey practice and Jordan napped.

She excels at making cookies now!

Guys! He is getting a REAL HAIR CUT this week.

Last night I saw Grease downtown.

Today we were all SO TIRED from losing an hour of sleep.

The original BFFs.

Jordan’s fave: make a funny face.

Onto a new week!

10 weeks into the year!

Here’s another weekly post where I ramble about being obsessed with my kids!

All Jordy needs is a truck and some rocks.

Baked pasta for dinner one night.

Magnatiles on the garage door.

So proud!

Writing everyone she loves. I can’t handle her!

Her leopards didn’t really match but how could I tell her no?

Mini BFFs at the library.

Randomly found this on my phone this week. Emilia!!

Lots of hockey this week!

Also went to disney on ice with cousins!!

The hand hold!

So many princess dresses to choose from… she decided to wear belle!

How is it the end of February?!

We had a nice little week.

The kids had monday off from school.

Sourdough pizza dough!!

It was cold this week but still not February cold.

Park fun.

Little baby boy.

They are the sweetest.

She is just the best with him.

Sourdough focaccia, sliced super thin for sandwiches.

Testing sourdough waffles too!

This long little bean.

Thursday night was amazing…

Because I went to see Boyz II Men! I mean, my inner 13 year old was DYING. They were so good.

He said “mama take a picture!”

Now “do a funny face!”

Pretty sure Emilia needs to be my stylist.

We put her hair up in flexirod curlers!

This morning it came out like this.

It was another hockey weekend!

Sneaky babies.

Must find all ways to entertain.

How cute is he on the ice!

My little tween.

Made a big pile of sourdough waffles to freeze.

And tried to make sourdough chocolate chip cookie bars but, eh. You win some, you lose some.

How is this my baby?!

Look at this sweet Valentine that Emilia made…

… for Max! Oh my gosh. Cue all the tears.

Playground weather for this boy.

Can’t get enough of his books!

And then it was Valentine’s Day with the queen of hearts!

Most red we could get… haha.

I love getting to do the kids’ class parties!

So so fun.

We made heart pizza of course.

This is the sourdough pizza crust again. It’s so good!

He is so funny.

Also made some dumpling soup at one point!

Made a batch of pumpkin muffins because…

Max had a hockey tournament in Buffalo!

Just the best.

MVP puck for the game!

Here at home we got snow!

Lots of big bed cuddles with me!!

Emilia started basketball.

She is the happiest girl.

Baby friends!

One of my favorite meals ever – the green lentil soup from 101 cookbooks. Don’t let the appearance sway you!

The boys took a freezing hiatus to niagara falls during game breaks.

Look at that crazy ice!

Annnnd that was the weekend.

Emilia just helped me stir some dough for sourdough focaccia!

What a week!!

We had such a beautiful weather week! It was so warm(ish) and sunny.

We eat a lot of oranges. Ha.

Warm enough for park snacks!

This babyyyyyy!

Oh my gosh. Look at this sourdough focaccia dough!

Okay, a ton of you asked about sourdough in my last post. This is what I’ve done this time around to be very successful! I made a new starter. Into a jar, I combined 15g organic rye flour, 45 grams organic bread flour and 60 grams room temp water. I mixed it together and then for the first week, I fed the started once a day. Starting the second week, I fed the starter every 12 hours, so twice a day. I do this around 7am and 7pm!

This has made my starter super strong. I didn’t try to bake with it at all the first few weeks. I probably gave it four or five weeks before trying to bake.

Also, I got this home for my starter, which has been a game charger, because I like to keep our house cold. I also use these proofing mats, which have been another game changer for the same reason.

Now, I bake stuff almost every day. I use this recipe for sandwich bread. I’ve tried a few others and I love this one the most.

I use this recipe for pizza dough. It’s the best I’ve ever found. I also use her recipe for english muffins! I’ve been making them once a week.

I still feed the starter twice a day, with 15g rye and 45g organic bread flour. When I make a leaven, I use all organic bread flour, as that is what I bake with too.

Let me know if this helps!!

My little diggers!

Tuesday nights we have hockey and skating late, Jordy runs wild.

Neon girl.

This little house was in our basement for years! Since Max was 3. The kids love it.

This weekend, Max had his last basketball game! After, we went to an end of the season party while Eddie took Emilia and Jordan to…

Monster jam!!!

Loved it!

Jordan especially loved it, this was his first time.

Made a lot of fruit plates this weekend for my valentines.

Went to a galentines party saturday night and made these cute little heart caprese skewers!

This morning, Max had a hockey game. He had a HAT TRICK!!! Woohoo!!!

Emilia and I made a candy salad for super bowl party/valentines day. She ADORES gummy candy.

Fun and cute!

I wish I was celebrating valentine’s day all year.

And now, go Taylor!
