Winter’s Play

As January comes to an end, I can’t help but wonder where the first month of the new year has gone. The Stavish boys have been busy enjoying the first snow fall, a fun trip to the lego store, outings out around town, and then a whooping of a blizzard. These everyday moments and out of ordinary events that fill their brains with new experiences that I have the pleasure of witnessing and guiding them through. Guidance may come in the form of rescuing the smallest out of waist deep snow by the mail box or picking up more tiny red legos than I care to admit.

Years down the road I want to look back and remember these small moments.

Family Game Day Progresso Chili Recipes

Football and chili on a cold winter night is the best way to spend a Sunday evening. If your team is down, trying out one of the many game day chili recipes is the easiest way to make halftime better than the game. With NFL playoffs in full swing, there is a whole lot of football left to enjoy. Although the Stavish boys have a pretty short attention span when it comes to sitting down to watch an entire game, they sure do love helping me any one of their favorite Progresso chili dishes.Progresso Chili Game Day RecipesProgresso has recently introduced three delicious chili flavors, Smokehouse Pork and Beef with Beans, Southwest Style White Chicken Chili with Beans, and a meatless option, Roasted Vegetable Chili with 3 Beans.

Catch the Moment Week 50 & 51

One more week too go off this project for the year!! I’m excited that this year is almost over. It’s been a rough one all around. Sadly these past few months I have relied a ton on my camera phone to get a photo in. There have been some days where I just didn’t feel like picking up my beloved Nikon. These past two weeks have been no different, but that’s okay. At least the moment was captured and that’s what this project is all about. It’s about being able to reflect on your year with one photo a day. So here goes…

Catch the Moment: Week 49

After falling behind for two entire months with this year, I’m determined to stay on top of the rest of the month.  I would love to finish the entire month with nothing but DSLR photos, yet it seems I already failed at that.  Such is life!
