Smoothie Time! *updated*

*update* Aaron's meetings got postponed...I'll let you know to when! :)
A few weeks ago, I won a giveaway on MoneySavingMom's blog (a great blog with tips on saving your family money, mostly on grocery shopping)! It was for a smoothie kit, which included a mini "smoothie" blender, several smoothie recipes, and 3 t-shirts! I couldn't believe I'd won...there were over 1200 entries!!! The girls and I were excited...they couldn't wait to make their own smoothies!!! So after naps, they got to make some. I had some bananas that were getting pretty ripe, so we used those and some strawberries and blueberries. They weren't half bad! None of the new recipes were for fruit that I had, so I just made it up:)

Kaedyn chose bananas and blueberries for hers.

She had fun making it, but didn't like the taste! :)

Anna chose bananas and strawberries (shocking, I know). I had to get a picture of her outfit. She picked out the new dress Aunt Cara made her and then since she couldn't find her flip flops, she decided to wear her cowgirl boots to the store! So cute!!

Very serious about this blending business! I made waaaay too much in hers, but she liked it. A really cool thing about this blender is that you can take it on the go and drink your smoothies right out of it! Very cool. Kind of big, but cool :)
So thanks to Crystal at MoneySavingMom!!! I can't wait to try all sorts of recipes for smoothies and use up almost expired fruits and yogurt!

This afternoon the girls and Jacob played very nicely together in their room. Jacob was having a ball with all the bracelets and necklaces ;)

Bath time last night got a little wild! :)
Daddy has a big day tomorrow...prayers would be wonderful! And Grandpa gets here tomorrow!! AND we just might get to go to Daddy's last softball game (it's not until 9pm, so we'll see!)
