Weekend of Fun :)

This weekend was so much fun for our little family. After waiting patiently for the movie to come out we got to go on a date and see The Hunger Games. AWESOME. It was such a great depiction of the book, Josh & I loved it. Josh even ordered me a hunger games shirt online, so I rocked that. Beckett had a good time too, playing and having fun with Bree, and gma & gpa Stape.
THEN to top of the weekend and make it even better we went and checked out the new City Creek Center. We had a great time checking the place out. Tons of great stores, lots of fun stuff was going on today. We even got a picture by a human statue(?) I'm not sure if that is the correct term, but it's all i've got.

Delicioso Recipe

I found this recipe online (via Pinterest), made it last night, yummm! So good (and pretty healthy) that I thought i'd share.
Smoky Corn & Black Bean Pizza
6 servings
-1 tomato, diced
-1 C canned black beans, rinsed
-1 C fresh corn kernels (I used frozen & cooked them)
-2 tabelspoons cornmeal
-1 pound whole wheat pizza dough (I used the refrigerated kind, didn't like it-the pizza dough that you make from a box is good, or homemade which I do when I have time)
-BBQ sauce
-Mozarella cheese, shredded
Combine tomato, beans, and corn. Sprinkle cornmeal on a baking sheet & lay the stretched out pizza dough on top. Spread BBQ sauce on the dough, as much as you'd like (I like it a bit thicker, 1 C), mozarella on top of the sauce. Then sprinkle with tomato mixture. So, the directions are to grill the pizza but since it's still winter I baked it like normal. 425 for 15 minutes.
Grilling directions: (medium heat) AFTER patting cornmeal on the bottom of the crust, transfer it directly to the grill for 4-5 minutes, lid closed. Using a large spatula, flip the crust & top the pizza. Close the grill and cook for another 4-5 minutes.

Stapley Ski Day

Every year the Stapley side gets together for a family ski day. This year the Arizona Stapley's weren't there...we missed them! It was a wonderful day of skiing....soooo warm too! It was my kind of skiing, warm enough that most of us didn't even wear our winter coats. I think I have decided that from now on i'll only go skiing on warm days, its so much better for me:)
We had a great time though. Everyone is pretty dang good, especially Bree. No broken bones, a couple of scratches and bruised tailbones though. We'll see what next year has in store.
After skiing we celebrated my dads birthday. The old man is now 51, and knowing him....he's got another 51 years of skiing in him.

B is a mover.

Beckett is getting more mobile by the second. He crawls everywhere. On top of that he is learning how to climb....yippee ;) He is also making progress with walking. He isn't walking unassisted but can use all of his walking toys by himself now. Our house is going to be even more of a mess when he starts walking! Josh & I made a bet about when he'll walk (at least 3 steps unassisted)....whoever wins gets a date of their choice.
Josh: 3/20/12
Me: 4/1/12
I'm totally going to win.
