So, Adelaide had a little run in with the trampoline and a mis-landed trick and fractured her arm. We are both glad that it happened the last week of the swim season and not the first.




It will be 2 weeks on Tuesday. I took her to her 2nd follow-up appointment on Friday thinking they’d take the splint off and put a cast on. He just cut more of a notch for her fingers and left the splint. Whatever, I’m over it now. The nice thing is she won’t have to have it sawed off when the time comes. She is such a good sport (although we both have our moments).


Taking good care of our patient.


And using up all the bandaids.

{grain-free cookies}

By Moriah on August 8th, 2014

So, I’ve been doing a little weight-loss experiment. I tried gluten-free and there was no change. A friend recommended looking at the numbers of the ‘other’ carbs I was eating and that was rather eye-opening. So I cut out those, too. I generally try to be sugar-free as well.

Anyway, we had dinner over at our neighbors house last week and she made these grain-free cookies and perhaps I’ve been living under a rock, but I had never heard of them before. So I’m sharing this super simple recipe in case you’ve been living under a rock, too.

(Also, obviously not sugar free, but I am gonna experiment with cutting it down to as little as possible. I just like having an option for special occasions and the most important thing to me is that they are grain free.)


The dough is 1 cup peanut butter, one egg, and one cup of sugar (I’m going to try halfing it next time). THAT’S IT. I use organic PB from Costco that has no added sugar, it’s basically just pureed peanuts.) If you have more than one kid you probably need to double or triple the recipe. Throw in a handful of choc chips if you feel necessary. You do have to shape & flatten them yourself as they won’t flatten otherwise.


Try camera settings on your cranky post-nap toddler while you wait.



YUM, enjoy.
