A Couple Pictures

Some random pictures from our week....

It turns out Charlotte LOVES sour-cream. I put some on top of her beans and rice the other night and she ate it right off the top. And then asked for more.

I've been on a quest to find all-natural food dye. I've wanted to do our traditional Christmas cookies, but Brennan can't have the food coloring that I would normally put in the icing. I could special order it, but it's SO expensive. So I tried some of my own. I used beet juice and turmeric powder (with milk and powdered sugar). You really can't taste the beet juice at all, and the turmeric I could only taste, slightly, on the cookies with ALL yellow icing. So we used the yellow as an accent color :). We frosted our sugar cookies with pink, yellow and white frosting...and my kids had no clue that this wasn't quite normal.
(you can see the beet juice and turmeric in the background)

We've hit another new phase in life. The phase when your children can actually take pictures of YOU! Brennan felt so grown up the other night when we asked him to take our picture. Not bad huh?
