Monday's mentions...

Hello my fabulous readers...this weekend sped by as always...but now in particular our weekends will be busier, and it's all brought on because we have kids...
Ballet on Saturday...skiing on Sunday and everything else inbetween...Saturday was spent prepping Dinner for friends...
we had salad with azian infused shrimp...followed by chicken stuffed with roast beetroot,garlic,cilantro,mushroom and cream-cheese wrapped in prosciutto...and mini roast veggie lasagnes...
followed by grilled pineapple,star fruit,blackberries and chocolate muffins made with chili dark chocolate...you can find the recipe HERE. I didn't have any Cinnamon...ran out???crazy,so I thought Chili Lindt Choc would work...and they were YUMMY! Oh, and I warmed them up slightly and added a ball of mango sorbet on the side...AND my camera battery ran out as I was making them...so apologies for not being able to show the finished product!
Sunday we went skiing...little Miss J was SO happy she had an ORANGE helmet(her fave colour)...but NOT so happy actually on the hill...first time out.
Little Miss A started her lessons...and LOVED it. She's such a trooper.
This morning I promised new tuttu dresses for their babies...et voila! I took an old ballet leotard and transformed it into 2 dresses.
Happy girls!
Tam called all the way from England...that really made my day(thanks Tam!)...I have been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off...laundry,school,food,lunch,dinner,cleaning,Mamas and Chicks new poster(will show tomorrow),flights for future holiday(yes,planning for holidays already)school work,reading,calling ads for used skates(Miss J's feet grew 4 sizes in one year!),cleaning some more....oh, and yoga. PHEW...I'm beat!
BUT...
