Rainy Day

I actually made something my friends haven't tried yet (at least not to my knowledge)! It's these little oatmeal/peanut butter balls that I found in my Wondertime magazine. All you do is mix:
1 c. peanut butter
1 c. honey
3 c. old-fashioned oats
1/2 c. ground flaxseed
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. any combination of nuts and soft dried fruit (I used peanuts, raisens and dried cranberries. I chopped them up real good in the food processor first to prevent choking)
Then you just roll them into little balls and put in the fridge for a few hours. It makes about 40 of them, so I actually halved the recipe. I've already had 4! I finally went to the grocery store and I bought the stuff to make Nicolette's beerocks later this week.
Anyway, this weekend we went to a little party where there was crafts and I made Finn a crown for his birthday. He didn't want to take it off! He kept saying "KING KING" (Leos DO expect to be treated like royalty). He even slept with it on (until I got too scared he would wake up and eat the stickers--I took it off him after he fell asleep). Of course, he's already ripped all the stickers off, so we'll see if it makes it to the birthday party or not.
Scott and I took Finn to the zoo yesterday, but we only stayed about an hour. It was SO hot! Here's a couple of cute shots of Finn by his Nemo fish and the turtle shell (I just can't resist posting pics of my preggo self)!


  1. Those sound so good. Just what I needed another sweet thing to add to daily BTW I think it is great that you get pics of yourself when you are pregnant. I wish I had more.

  2. you are such a cute pregnant girl! keep those pictures comin!! you know you will forget so quickly. great shot of finn in the crown, too. the boys look at the calendar every morning and tell me how many more days until finn's party:)
