where did that come from?

peyton has being saying such random things lately but one we all keep repeating.

i have to preface this with letting you know that "fighting" is wrestling at the smith house and we do a lot of it.

peyte had a little face diamond jewel thing in her hand that she kept calling "magic".

"mom fight dad. he will die. i have magic"

riley told asked her baby sitter the other day "mallory what if i have a baby and it comes out a horse?"

i looked across the kitchen table last night and peyton was sitting there waiting for riley to be done with dinner playing with a "lamb" i heard her say with palm out and arm bent at a 90 degree angle "come here little lamb" then her had moved up and down slightly as if the lamb landed on her hand. she talked to it for a minute and then her hand bounced again when the "lamb" jumped off.

the other day i asked peyton why she sleeps with her whole face under her sheets and quilt, she told me it was so she could suck her thumb without us knowing. BUSTED!

riley came home from church sunday and said, "mom all of the big kids start school tomorrow. why can't i start" i explained that this will be her last year to ever miss the first day of school and that it is because of her birthday but assured her she would be in preschool. the next morning she walked down the stairs and over to ian and said "well dad i have another year before i start school" poor girl.

one of riley's favorite things to do right now is watch how to videos on you tube for applying your makeup to look like a princess. you think she would be a natural now for how many times she watches the same videos over and over again but for some reason every time she puts on her own makeup the brown eye shadow end up smeared down her cheeks and her eyes look like someone hit her. why?

try this....

i went to a party a couple weeks ago; after devouring an entire bowl of this bean stuff i called my friend for the recipe. trust me you want it.

try it this week, you won't be disappointed! the recipe makes up a lot so you may want to half it although it does keep for a few days.

the sauce:
1/3 C lime juice
1/2 C olive oil (i use a little less)
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
1/8 cyan pepper

*mix and set aside

the goods:
2 avocados diced (i do 3 because i love them)
2 cans black beans (drain and rinse)
1 1/2- 2 C frozen corn (i just rinse mine off and let it thaw for a couple of minutes)
1/2 red pepper diced
2 tomatoes diced
6 green onions sliced
1/2 C cilantro (a little more or a little less depending on how much you like it)

*mix it all together and serve.

the first time i ate it we had it with tortilla chips, i've seen it put on top of hamburgers.

and ian and i marinated some shrimp se in baja chipotle sauce and then warmed it up on the stove and put this stuff on top for shrimp tacos.

tell me what you think.
