Banana Pudding

If you're a Banana Pudding fan, you're going to LOVE this delicious recipe.  I found it last year and it's so good!  A must have for every cookout this summer!  

Is it crazy that I've already made 6 banana puddings this summer?

Storytime From A to Z: Letter G

This particular week at Coop, the Storytime From A to Z letter was "G" and the book was Good Night Gorilla. This book is a favorite in our house!  My girls love to retell the story over and over!
Good Night, Gorilla 
 After completely the phonics activity from the  Storytime From A to Z book, we acted out the story using these Story Props from Kiz Club, which has a ton of story props for a variety of books.  

Here are a few other great ideas from Pinterest.

Mexican Stuffed Peppers = YUMMY!

We have given up red meat in our's been at least 9 months and no one is missing it!  My husband and I really like stuffed peppers, but I needed to find a new recipe without beef.  

Thankfully, there's Pinterest!  

This was our first experience with Quinoa...not bad!  

Check out the recipe here

**The only change I would make next time would be to delete the cilantro.**

Dr. Seuss Summer Reading

The last time we were in Books A Million, we spotted the Dr. Seuss Summer Reading Program.  

 The girls were so excited to read all their Dr. Suess books to earn a free lunch bag!  Yes, my tongue is numb!  They each needed to read 4 books. 


Showing off their new bags! 

Enjoying more books!  

They can spend hours in a book store...I love seeing their "love" for books! 

Be sure to stop by your local Books A Million this summer and join the Dr. Seuss Reading Program.

Happy Belated Father's Day

To the BEST daddy in the world!

Storytime From A to Z: Letter L

This particular week at Coop, the Storytime From A to Z letter was "L" and the book was Lunch.

 After completing the phonics activities included in the book, Storytime From A to Z, the girls completed this lunchbox craft. 

 They were given a sheet of food to color, cut, and paste their "favorites" for their lunchbox.

 The following would work great with this book too.  Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to complete everything.
