Baby #4, Homemade yogurt and The First Day of Kindergarten

We recently found out we are expecting baby #4!!  We are thrilled and just so excited to find out what this baby is going to be.  Anjali and Jaiden both insist that this baby is a boy.  They say Rayna is already our baby girl so this one is "our boy".  Too cute!  I'm due on February 13th so we just might be having a Valentine's baby :)

I've been wanting to make homemade yogurt for quite a while now and I finally got up the nerve to try!  So glad I did because it was soooo simple to make and very good.  It's more healthy AND it is way more cost effective to make homemade than to purchase store bought.  So this is our first batch...
We all love yogurt and like to use it in smoothies too so I will probably be making this quite often now!  It's so good with fresh fruit mixed in!!  I made it last night and already used it to make some muffins for breakfast.

We are homeschooling and today was Anjali's first day of Kindergarten!!!  She was thrilled to be starting and we had a wonderful first day of school.  Jaiden was just as excited as Anjali and was very involved in her lessons.  Here is a pic we took on Sunday and I just had to post it since it turned out so cute...

 So this is her actual first day of school pic...

 Always being silly :)

 Here she is working on her math...

Anjali got to choose our menu for today and she chose banana chocolate chip muffins for breakfast, tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch and spaghetti with meatballs for dinner.  She loves to help me make the meatballs ;)  We are very excited to be homeschooling our children and thrilled about what this year holds for our family!!

Anjali's 5th Birthday

Anjali has always been fascinated with horses and her love for them just keeps growing and growing!  So for her 5th birthday Daniel planned with some amazing friends for us to camp out on their ranch!!  They have several different animals and our kids had so much fun.  Anjali is definitely a natural with animals.  They would follow her around the pasture and she just loved it! 

Making friends with the donkeys...

They loved her!!  And she adored them...

Feeding the animals their dinner...

After riding the train at a park on our trip...
Back in February we made a trip to Austin, Tx.  Here's a few pics of the kids enjoying the parks :

Valentine's Day

On Valentine's Day we made chocolate chip cookies and the kids had fun decorating them!

Valentine's Advent - Day #4

Day #4 we made marshmallow pops!  Similar to the cake pops I made for Anjali's 4th b'day but waaayyy easier.  Still love the cake pops but these were fun for a quick treat!  We stuck the marshmallows on lollipop sticks...

Then we dipped them in melted chocolate and decorated them with sprinkles. 

Easy, fun and yummy!!!
