Today was a great day! I actually got up early and took a shower before I took Kobi to MDO (this rarely ever happens) I guess I usually look pretty bad when I take him, because everyone kept saying "oh wow you look great!" hhhhmmmmm....

Makayla had her 9 month check up, and all was well! She is now 19.5 lbs and 27"(big girl) She is on track with all her milestones, and didn't have to get any vaccinations, but she did have to get her finger poked for an anemic test (which was a lot worse than a shot) poor think! This a pic of Makayla BEFORE her trip to the "finger pricker"

Kobi had a Valentine's Party at school today and had a great time! We had made little Valetine's for his friends the night before and made his teachers chocolate covered pretzels's with valentien's sprinkle's! He made a paper sack covered in coloring and stickers, he called it his "doody bag" (Goody Bag.) He has carried that thing around all day since school but he was very good and didn't eat his Valentine's Candies!

We ended the afternoon making a Homemade Peach Cobbler to take over to Kyle's dad's for dinner! This is the best recipe I have eer found for a Peach Cobbler:

Easy Homemade Peach Cobbler

2 bags frozen peaches
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
i stick butter
1 1/2 cups SELF-RISING flour (must use self-rising)
1/2 cup milk
Ground Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine thawed peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in skillet and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 min. Remove from heat.

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt

Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, a teaspoon of ciccamon, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter and do NOT stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently puring syrup.

*Batter will rise to top during baking.

Bake for 30-45 min.

*And for best results serve warm with Vanilla Ice Cream!

We had a wonderful night visiting with Eric and Renata over the best BBQ! The kids even got to take a bath in the Giant Laundry Room Sink!
Kobi and Pepaw decided it would be fun to throw foam blocks off the top of the balcony. hhhmmmm I hope Kobi doesn't think he can do this at home! lol
Now I'm off to spend the rest of the night icing cake sandwhich's for Valentine's and watch Grey's/ Private Practice, and hope the weather holds for tomorrow's trip to the ZOO!!!

Oh I like the recipe! There is one day a week that I get done with school semi early and I have been cooking on those days so I will give it a try! I'll let you know how it turns out.
