Sorry about the lack of blogging... I'm kind of over it. Here's a couple pics of our new baby in the ultra sound. So far her name is Holland James. I love it! If you don't like it, feel free to have your own baby and choose your own name, ass. And DON'T tell me that everyone's going to call her Holly. If you call her holly you will answer to the wrath of me!
Mike likes Scout also, but not sure if I can commit to that name.

On October 2nd we all met at my Grandmas grave for the one year anniversary(do you really call it this?) of her death. It sounds strange to call it anniversary. My mom got the prettiest flowers-forgot the name of them- and mini pumpkins for each great-grandchild to put on her marker. We miss Grandma Hatch

Yay! At least we got to see the baby giraffe! She is cute too! She is over 6 feet tall already.
Papa and Lennon (bonus a zebras butt-proof we were really at the zoo!)
Lennon looking cute & a little ragged. Her hair can get out of control fast. But her face is still so sweet.

I am considering a natural birth. We also threw the idea around to not find out the sex. Mike laughed and said YOU will never be able to handle that! It's a nice thought though. I really don't know how people can wait to find out. Maybe, just maybe, we will be one of those people.
In other news Lennon said a 4 word sentence! I asked her where her treat cup was and she says "treat cup in there." I was shocked! We went in her room and I still didn't see the cup, until she pointed to it and said "there." The girl's a genius! haha! She can draw a perfect circle too. She is obsessed with drawing circles?? And the girl is OBSESSED with Yo Gabba Gabba. Like a crazy obsession. That's what we're being for Halloween-our favorite holiday.

Come on, support our local farmers that make a living this way. Not only are you helping out your neighbor, but you will eat something that tastes like what it really is! You can ask them when it was picked and it's usually this morning. How awesome is that?
Oh and while we're on the subject-Lennon had her first happy meal the other day (hopefully her last, hah). I thought hmm I'll get her something healthy, the apple dippers. What the hell are those things? They did not even taste like an apple at all! They were some kind of genetically engineered extremely, crunchy thing. Lennon would not go near them (thank God). I wonder just how many days they have been peeled before you eat them, because they were in no way turning the usual brown color that a natural apple does. shudder. Sick!
Everyone-including me for sure, needs to be more conscious of what you are ingesting into your body. Think, why do so many Americans develop cancer? Could it be our horrible diets? I think that's definitely the reason. When you can't pronounce the ingredients in your food, there are 95 ingredients in it & they all appear to be at least 18 letters long, which you vaguely remember doing some kind of science experiment with that in 12th grade chemistry, that can't be a good idea to eat that. Food isn't supposed to stay fresh for 2-5 years. I don't know, I guess I'm just weird?! Eating a chemical substance that is made using chlorine & sugar, and discovered while performing yet again an experiment (a tasty, tasty one at that ;)), that scares me. I really don't care if it has more calories to eat real sugar. Bring on the organic, all natural sugar, baby. Because think about it food/drinks have calories! And if you're eating/drinking something that doesn't have calories, what the fuck are you eating/drinking? You can't cheat the system. You're drinking/eating straight nasty chemical funk.
K- stepping off my soap box now. And thinking about Doritos, but going to refrain. They are delicious. hah

I want to lay in a dark room and take a nap. A girl can wish, right?

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!
And then i took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes-i guess he don't know
that three is more than two!
Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!
And i took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
and the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!
And then i went and showed my dad,
and he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head-
Too proud of me to speak!

LONDON, England (CNN) -- Call it a case of high tech meeting low tech, really the lowest of tech.
Satellites are locating penguin waste, which is easier to find than the penguins themselves
The penguins are difficult to pick up on sea ice, because of their natural camouflage that helps them blend into the shadows -- so the British Antarctic Survey had to come up with another method.
Fortunately, penguin waste shows up nicely from space, staining the ice a light brown.
"We can't see actual penguins on the satellite maps because the resolution isn't good enough," said mapping expert Peter Fretwell. "But during the breeding season the birds stay at a colony for eight months. The ice gets pretty dirty and it's the guano stains that we can see."
The method helped scientists identify 38 penguin colonies -- of those, 10 were new. Of previously known colonies, six had re-located and six were not found.
"This is a very exciting development. Now we know exactly where the penguins are, the next step will be to count each colony so we can get a much better picture of population size," said penguin ecologist Phil Trathan.
"Using satellite images combined with counts of penguin numbers puts us in a much better position to monitor future population changes over time."Estimates put the total number of penguins at between 200,000 and 400,000 breeding pairs.
This is so cool I had to share it!

The other day she dropped her ball and it rolled down the stairs and she said "ball down." Not bad for one and a half! I think she makes up for her delayed walking by talking non stop. It is so cute, we love it.
I love this picture! She looks so grown up.
that hair! Mama would kill to have that hair.
This is totally Lennon:

I'm going to start posting recipes. I don't care if you don't want to see what I eat (Chelsea), the fact is that a good portion of my life is spent cooking so I am sharing recipes & pics of our dinner. You should all do the same so we can get new things to make too.
QUICHE! (we like to call it quee chay)
I thought I hated this, but actually love it! Plus it's a great way to sneak vegetables into your dinner. I always put brocolli, peppers and mushrooms in it.
Ready made Pilsbury pie crust (or you can make your own if you have time)
cheese - we like pepper jack
red, yellow & orange peppers
Saute broc, peps, and shrooms in butter until soft
Whisk eggs with a little sour cream (you can omit the sour cream if you want), stir in cheese (how ever much you want)
Place crust in bottom of sprayed pie dish
Pour vegetables on to crust
cover with egg and cheese mixture
sprinkle entire quiche with paprika. This makes the quiche sooo yummy and makes a red crust on the top
Bake @ 375 for about 40-50 minutes.
Add a side veggi and voila, easy and so yummy. Plus it makes a great breakfast the next day. I also garnish with avocado and fresh tomatoes.

This is Mike and I about 1998. I was 16 he was 17. I liked to go tanning every other day and I nicknamed myself Starr Martinez. (No offense to anyone, I was just extremely tan) And a shade of orange!
The best part is Mike's shirt. He was vegan and liked to tell everyone about it. Ah to be 17 again!
It's OK not to drink milk!
