Thank you Janell, for my belly is satisfied and full.  All you health nuts and gluten free fellows (traces of wheat and gluten may be in breads but the minimal amount even for Celiac patients).  Try 
Sami's Bakery in Tampa, Florida.  We just got our delivery today and yummy!  Our first Gluten Free Pizza night and everyone ate it!

Smell my feet

"One more hug mommy.
Mommy, one more kiss.
Mommy, smell my feet."

She now also pretends to pee standing up.  What's a mother to do?  You would never know it by looking at this sweet face.

My Cowboy Frog

Charlie boy is four!  He requested a cowboy frog cake from his Mimi.  I requested no artificial colors or flavors.  Mimi was certainly challenged with the green icing!  She did it and it was delicious.  Charlie man was overjoyed and overtired.  We learned to not have a four year old party at the end of the day.  Made for a rough bedtime.  Charlie slept with his new pirate ship from Nana and hasn't put it down since.
At four, Charlie...

is curious (God, strangers, volcanoes, earthquakes, seasons, time)
is cautious
is an attention seeker
is creative
is a follower
is smart
loves bubble gum (Glee Gum)
loves pirates
will be playing soccer
is funny
"Nathan is bigger than me.  We weigh the same size."

I am crazy about this little boy and I rush home to see him everyday!  I love you Charlie boy!

Just a little pic of little miss and her new habit and new hair.

making a shift

i was diagnosed with psoriasis, uggghhh. have been battling dry, itchy scaly, red, scabby skin for years now.  i am finally getting relief thanks to a wonderful dermatologist Dr. Kahn and a gluten free diet.  a major shift for a pizza and sandwhich lover.  it hasn't been as bad as i thought and the relief i have and overall great feeling is worth it.  so.. what am i eating?
lots of fruits and veges
lean meats
hummus, cheese, rice/corn based tortillas, egg whites, smoothies
thank goodness potato chips are gluten frree
kix and organic corn flakes
nuts and beans
*fish is a really important food that i have yet to aquire a taste.  any suggestions?

made a huge trader joe's run and i am feeling good.  i have not been tested for a gluten intolerance but gluten is the number one thing suggested to eliminate from your diet if you are having inflammation issues inside or out.  we'll see..

The time has come..

We have finally purchased a new computer.  Sorry kids, there goes another semester of college.  But thanks to Uncle Sam's tax return and my financial planner hero (brother), mama and papa could get the ever so lovely imac.  We currently are working on a laptop that has 21 missing keys, a power cord being held in by a candle and a memory with 2% left.  Yes, the time has finally come.  I will be posting pictures next week.
