Things are not going well here at the Pinney household...

Wednesday, February 23, 2011


This weekend at Sunday's wedding, all of my sisters were finally together! I can't honestly remember the last time all six of us were together without at least one person missing. I also cannot understand why everyone always insists on facing the sun in pictures! Who wants pictures of themselves squinting?? It's so annoying. But no one would listen to me, when I tried to pose us on the other side of the tree! Because, heaven forbid, we have the sun behind us! Me, Lois, Liz, Linda, Theresa, & Bobbi Lois, Me, Liz, Mom, Linda, Theresa, & Bobbi TWINS! Me & Theresa More Twins!! Me & Theresa, and Jenna & Jamie (my sister Liz's twins)

Did You Make Your Bed??

So, I decided to tackle Braden's bed situation. I'm always telling him to make his bed, but I honestly don't check. It's a high bunk bed, I can't see what's going on, so I ignore it most days. Well, I wish I had a BEFORE picture. It was like a little nest, it actually looked quite comfortable. But I started pulling off blankets and throwing them on the floor, and he had 11 blankets! ELEVEN!! He also had two pillowcases, but no pillows, one stuffed animal, and NO SHEETS! Weird. So I made it beautiful, with a pillow, and only TWO blankets, made him study it for awhile, and told him this is what he should make it look like after he wakes up each morning. We shall see... While I love the IDEA of this loft bed, after it took me TWENTY minutes to make it, I'm seriously considering selling it! I hate making bunk beds, it's so hard!

Valentine's Day Loot

When the kids got home from school with Valentine's treats in tow, they literally THREW their backpacks and dumped the candy bags. Nice. (See all their stuff scattered EVERYWHERE in the background?) After we cleaned up the tornado, we had a yummy dinner of homemade Costa Vida salads and chocolate fondue for dessert. This year we had our typical chocolate-caramel sauce, but we tried white chocolate for the first time also, and it was delicious.

Ice Cream For Breakfast

That's right. We know how to party. (Don't worry, we added sliced bananas, so it's okay.)

My Techie

Conner loves the Ipad. It makes me laugh, because he actually accomplishes things on it. He knows right where to find all the games. But, he doesn't understand my laptop now, and gets so frustrated when he puts his finger on the screen and NOTHING happens. It must be broken.

I Heart Pizza

I never make pizza because I can't roll out dough. I get very frustrated and feel like a failure as a homemaker. :o) Whatever, I decided to try a friend's "easy" recipe from her blog here. I still can't roll out dough, and my pizza looked NOTHING like Amy's pizza. Her crust looked so beautiful and round, mine was sticky and not round. But guess what? It was still delicious. And I redeemed myself by making heart-shaped pepperonis, so I'm not a failure after all! And since there will be no wasting, we made a second pizza for the cut-out pepperoni extras.

Here Comes The Sun!

Thank goodness for warm, sunny days to lift our spirits! I am so done being cold, and I know it's nothing like what others in the world are experiencing, but I still hate it! Today it was 70 degrees and we ate lunch outside. I'm so happy right now.
