I'm back!

After 2 weeks in Florida I'm back!! My family and I went to Florida along with my sisters, their families and my parents. 8 adults and 10 kids (10 yrs and under) under one roof. Loud at times and exhausting but a lot of fun.

Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate and was a chilly 10-15C most days. Being the hot blooded Canadians that we are (and knowing that back home the weather was a nippy -15C! ... we toughed it out lol). We were always shocked to see other tourists wearing winter coats and winter hats (I'm not joking) when we're in T-shirts and shorts. Like I said ... hot blooded Canadians!

When I was packing to go to Florida I was able to wedge in 5 books amongst my clothes because I thought I'd be able to read a lot while relaxing in the sunshine. Ha ha! With 10 kids in the house and most days visiting Disney parks, Shamu, Space Shuttles and showing my kids the beach for the first time I wasn't able to get in a whole lot of reading time. I did manage to read 1 1/2 book so it wasn't too bad.

I did miss my kitchen so after only being home for one day I've tried 2 new recipes (a nice breaded chicken as well as pumpkin chocolate chip muffins -- which are baking as I type). I'll post those tomorrow morning.

It's good to be back! :)
