My Baby is Two

Rylee turned two last Thursday, and sadly I was going to pass on doing anything especially because we don't have any family in town. After deciding I could possibly be the worst mother by skipping celebrating Ry's b'day we settled for a "play date" with friends and cupcakes for treats. Word got around that it was Ry's b'day, and the play date turned into a party...which now I'm really grateful for.

Ry's b'day present from us was this kitchen, which she loves. She is constantly making soup on the stove and in the microwave, and talking to each grandparent on the phone.

Little Bit of This Little Bit of That

I am not on the ball with anything, including this sad site I call a blog. Anyways, here is our last couple weeks.

Grandma Lou came for a visit, and we were so lucky to have beautiful warm sunny days. We went to the zoo, had lunch at Cosco, and went on nice to have my mom here.

Chocolate covered strawberries for my Valentine on Valentines Day!! Sooooo Goooood!
Ry and I made some cookies for her upcoming birthday. This is her favorite part..."taste, taste, taste??"

Since we have told our families via text our good news, I guess it's time we share it with everyone else. I'm 15 weeks prego, so there will be a new baby mid August for the McMinns. In Kev's words I'm already looking a little pregnant, which I informed him happened to just be my fat gut since I'm pretty positive you don't show at 15 weeks. Thanks babe!

I Love Food

We have been missing the food from Hong Kong ever since we got back to the States in August so here was my lame attempt to recreate the yummy delicacies in my home. I made Char Siu Bao (the roll looking thing) which is bbq pork in a roll, pot stickers which we actually never had in HK but it's an Asian food and we love them, and some char siu pork on rice. To finish it off I made cocktail buns (rolls with a coconut/sugar filling) which were so delicious in HK and not so delicious from my kitchen. The only foods missing (besides any sort of vegetable) were don tarts, mango pudding, and taro cake.
