Saturday, January 17, 2009


Tonight we broke out the paella pan Jenny received for Christmas from Mom and Dad Smith. The recipe we followed was the traditional Valencian variety, but we elected to replace the rabbit with chicken and the homemade meatballs it called for with some store-bought chorizo...

Cooking up lots of peppers, garlic and scallions...

The finished product! It really turned out much better than we expected. It was delicious and we'll definitely make this again, though probably not every week as it's pretty involved.

Yeah! Leftovers for tomorrow night...

More pretending

Gavin is continuing his enjoyment of pretending and dressing up ... on this particular day when we were working on setting up the baby's room, he hailed a pair of Daddy's pants from our bedroom and decided to give them a try (along with Mommy's sun hat).

He also is really digging the accessories that came with a play-camping set, particularly the backpack and all of its contents. He decided to add the superhero mask and a Badger pom pom for some flair.

Our Superhero

Gavin received "Super Hero in a Box" from his cousins Anna and Caroline for Christmas. He busted it out tonight and was very excited to show off the cape... he's not so sure about the mask.
