Happy Birthday Holly (sorry...1 day late!)

the 2 year olds...

Yesterday was my sister-in-law, Holly's, birthday! Her husband Eric made a wonderful dinner or fried turkey, potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole and tons more for us to eat and enjoy with the rest of the Quinns. It was nice to sit down and celebrate with them :) Thanks Eric and Holly for a wonderful evening!!

We are so blessed to have such a large family to gather and celebrate with! Last weekend, we had dinner in Cincinnati with Jeff's grandparents. Today, we went to my Nana's for lunch and had a great spread of food. Tonight, we had dinner for the Greiner side. Lily had a great time running around with Ty and all of the other kiddos. We have had some hard moments this year, but family always makes us happy. Happy Thanksgiving!

Our very own Rudolph

Today, Lily decided to decorate herself with marker. Despite my mom's attempt to wash off the washable markers, she still looks like this tonight!

We're still here...

It has been awhile since I have posted...mostly because there isn't a lot of news to report! Things have been relatively calm and normal. All this will change of course with the holidays. We started the holiday season off this past weekend in Cincinnati. We had dinner with Jeff's grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. It is always great to see everyone! I am looking forward to a short break away from school and to spend time with family this week. When I go back, I will only have 3 weeks until Christmas break!

Stay tuned for Thanksgiving pics!

Easy Meal Idea

Ham and Cheese Crescents

For all you working moms out there...I am always looking for easy meals to make for dinner. Frankly, I really have no energy to put into meal planning, but Lily and Jeff have to eat. I thought I would share this easy, kid approved meal with you.

You need...
1 can of crescent rolls (who doesn't like these)
cheese slices
ham (I used deli meat)

Preheat the oven to 375. Lay out the crescent rolls-open. Place half a slice of cheese and a couple pieces of ham. Roll it up. Bake for 11 minutes and you are done!

We paired them with tomato and cucumber slices. Lily helped make them, so she was into it! She loved them and so did I!

My sister also make Tuna Calzones...same thing, only put tuna and cheese inside the crescent rolls and bake.
