Once again, where did the month go!?! Heck, where has this year gone? Even the last few days of December have gotten away from me. I meant to post this on the first, but the first was Ashlynn's birthday and anyways, no more excuses. Let's move on. I actually did pretty good for the month of November.
Try a new recipe each week - Well the cooking was a big fat fail this month. But, I did come up with an amazing recipe for cranberry sauce that I was pretty excited about. It was so good on those turkey sandwiches too!
Organize recipes - This is just going to have to wait for January.
Gather favorite recipes - I've got to do this so I can start working on that family cookbook.
Take Ella on a date - We had to reschedule this one to December. Fortunately, it was actually because of something she had to go to and she doesn't even seem to remember.
Take fall pics if we get another nice day - I'm so sad I didn't find the time for this.
Plan Ashlynn's first birthday - Well I win "The Worst Mother of the Year" award. :) I didn't even make a cake until dinner time and then I didn't have time to let it cool before attempting, attempting being the key word here, to frost it. The cake looked awful, I didn't even wrap her present and she didn't really like dinner that night. So big fail on my part. Ashlynn I promise I'll make it up to you in years to come. I will say though that I made her gift and it turned out pretty freakin' adorable.
Make the hair clippies for Ella's birthday party - Agh, I've gotta get these done. Her birthday is next week. I guess I know what I'll be doing tonight after the kids go to bed.
Figure out a budget for the month - Yeah, lets not talk about this.
Okay, so not quite as good as I thought, but not to shabby either. I'm over it. Moving on.
