Weigh Day

Down 5 pounds this week and 1 from the week
before that I forgot to post.
So that brings the total to 31 pounds!
So happy!
It's not coming off as fast as it has in the past but
I'm completely ok with that.

Whole Wheat Scones

As a kid this was one of my favorite things
my mom made us for breakfast.
And now my kids love them as well!
They are delicious right out of the oven with a little
butter and jam!


Whole Wheat Scones
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup flour
1 T. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk or sour milk
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • In a large bowl sift together flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in buttermilk until just moistened.
  • With floured hands, pat dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment, into a 9 inch circle, 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cut into 8 pie shaped wedges.
  • Pull out every other wedge to slightly separate for baking.
  • Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve hot.

"He is Risen!"
We had such a great Easter!
Liv was pretty excited when she got up to see if the Easter bunny
brought her anything.
We had a great morning at church.
Kellen was perfect and sat on my lap or my dads through
the whole service.
Liv enjoyed playing in the nursery with the other kids,
where I was informed she is quite the little mother.
After church we headed home for naps then enjoyed
lunch at my parents house.
I would say the meal was one of the best I've ever had.
Prime rib was the main attraction, need I say more.
After lunch we headed outside for an Easter egg hunt.
Kellen enjoyed picking up a couple.
Liv on the other hand was going crazy!
Every time she found an egg she yelled, "Look another one!"
All in all it was a great day filled with lots of food and family.
