About Me

My photo
I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

Wow, my boys are four years old!!

I can't believe my twins are 4 already. Seems like a year ago they were babies learning how to walk and say their letters! Now they're reading words, building with blocks, and have such personalities. Yesterday was their birthday, we celebrated as a family. Hubby took the day off of work (how awesome is that?!) and we took the boys out for chocolate pancakes for breakfast, then we all played glow in the dark mini golf. It was so fun! We used their birthday coupons to get free scoops of ice cream for them, then they went to Publix and were each given a birthday helium balloon and a cookie, free of charge. Publix rocks! We had taken them to Toys R Us over the weekend, and as always they didn't have what we went for in stock, but they did find some awesome Mario pull back racers and were very happy. They got balloons there too!

What surprised me the most was that both boys took the time to read each tag on their presents, to find out who they were from (they only opened ours, the rest are for their party this weekend). They said thank you to the gift giver before opening each present, I was shocked! They are such sweet boys. We have done something right :) Now if I could just figure out how to get more time in each day to share with my family... ha!
