Here and There October/November 2016

I could not for the life of me think of anything to write for my October Here and There update. So, I decided to combine October with November. Also, I get it… I know it’s February! 🙂

My grandma Theresia and Grandpa Maurice knew how to celebrate the holidays. I found these old photos and it brought back so many memories of going to their house every Halloween to eat chili burgers (sloppy joe’s), orange jell-o, and homemade buttery rolls. I miss them and I want to be more like them in every way. Also, can we talk about how I was Barney for Halloween. It was probably one of my most favorite costumes as a child.

TeAnna dressed up like someone from Beverly Hill Billy’s and there is the Baby Bob to my Barney.

Here and There (June 2016)

Here and There (April 2016)

Happy May everyone. I love the month of May because it always meant school was out and it was time for swimming, reading and playing in the sun. This year is a bit weird because Robert actually started school in May. Crazy, huh? Goodbye swimming for him.

April was a wonderful month because it was my birthday month. It also warmed up so we were able to do more things outside. The flowers were blooming and everyday we would check on our little flowers to see if they had bloomed yet.

And we had delicious food. I found this recipe for homemade green sauce. I usually buy the bottled stuff, but it has a bunch of things in it that I don’t want in my body like MSG and such. So I decided to make my own.

Chili Verde sauce
