Poo Cake in my New Kitchen

Isaac is successful at potty training! Good Job Isaac!This is his special "poo" cake! Can you tell we are a family of boys? Kristen, don't you thing Sis. Hom would have found this appalling? HaHa! This cake was promised but not delivered until two weeks after that promise - yes, it took him 2 weeks to finally go in the potty! So, by the time it was "poo" cake day, I was out of eggs! I had heard you can put pureed beans in brownies instead of the oil, so I thought, why not cake? After all, it is a "poo" cake, so if it tastes gross, the kids will like licking off the frosting and we will throw the rest away. With much reservation, I added in some pureed beans to the chocolate cake box mix, added a cup of frozen zucchini (pureed also) from last years garden, and put in 1 cup of buttermilk that was going to waste.... and it was the best tasting cake we have ever eaten!!!!!! I wrote the recipe down because it was so amazing and so now I have shared it with you all!

My Grandma and Grandpa came to St. George to get out of the cold Northern Utah weather! We love having them come visit!So, when my Grandma walked into my home, she said, "I love your home, but it needs some color!" So, here's before.......

Here's after! My Grandma is amazing! She is 73 and did almost all of it! I love having her here for a whole month!FYI

The 5000 Year Leap

And another "must read"! I think that all Americans should read this book and recommend it more highly than "Common Sense". This book is called "The Five Thousand Year Leap" by W. Cleon Skousen and it's AMAZING! Really, everybody go to your library or order it on Amazon and READ THIS BOOK!

Why I haven't been blogging...

Loving on my sick babies...

Chasing my mobile baby, who doesn't feel like a baby any more....My Grandma came to visit! Andrew is showing her how he can read....
The biggest time consumer of all... Potty training Isaac!!! The most frustrating part of motherhood so far. (I don't have teenagers yet!)

Matthew staying up until 11pm reading with a flashlight so he doesn't wake Andrew...

Isn't this a cute pic of Levi and all his rolls?? Bath time!I've also been reading a lot and trying to keep up with housework. Potty training creates a TON of laundry. We've been at it for 2 weeks, and it's pretty hit and miss. Literally.... Isaac tries to stand like his brothers. Ha!

How many licks to the center of a tootsie roll pop?
