Baking and Gingerbread houses

"domestic goddess"

Some may be surprised that with all the talent I possess, I cannot cook or bake. Luckily for my boys, there soon to be step-father is a wonderful cook and loves to bake. Steveo has taken an interest in this. He is always asking me to whip up some tofu and rice like Tom does, or make a chicken-rice-cheese quesidilla the way Tom does. So when this happens and Tom is not here, we make do with Del Taco or microwaved Chicken Nuggets. Now baking is, WAY OUT OF MY LEAGUE. There was nothing I could offer Steveo to satisfy his baking interest. So yesterday, after making the club house, Steveo and Tom baked there little hearts out. They baked the yummiest cookies, I helped him make a gingerbread house that we gave to grandma as a gift. And Steveo (and I think Tom) learned lessons in patience. Steveo wanted the cookies NOW, and Tom had to patiently explain (over and over) that baking takes time. So while the boys were baking, I took some photos. Precious.

Other than cooking, I AM a domestic goddess, just had to throw that out there!!!

Welcome to Steveos Club house

We used every throw pillow in the house, Charlie even got inside. It was pretty cozy until you try to sit up. We had fun anyway.

December 18th 2009

8 years ago, I gave birth to Steveo. I cried, Sean cried, my mom cried. It was one of the best days of my life. The joy that he brings me is infinite. He amazes me daily with his wit and sarcasm. He has my dark sense of humor, his brothers fearlessness, and I'd like to believe he learned sarcasm from the king (Tom) He is truly an old soul.

Happy Birthday Steveo, mommy loves you more than you know.

I dont mean to brag, but...

This IS the 3rd year in a row that Steveo got student of the month!!!!!! He chose Panda Express for dinner. I told him how proud I am of him, I hope he stays motivated. I had his parent teacher conference today, and he is in the highest reading and Math group. She wants to test him for G.A.T.E classes. I forgot what the gate stands for, but I know its for the very smart, and in Steveos case, extremely gifted, artistic, creative, funny, and just plain sweet kids in his school.
So Congratulations Steveo, I hope you read this one day, and remember how much I love, adore, and cherish you. I am a proud mom, honored to be able to call him and Nick my sons. Not a day goes by that Im not grateful for having healthy, happy boys.
