Christmas Sacco Family Food Challenge

We've had a few requests to see the video/recap of the Sacco Family Food Challenge that happens annually at Christmas time.  Enjoy! (it's long so no hard feelings if you're totally disinterested in this first minute - ha!)

PS- I will be making it an absolute priority to get new glasses in 2011.  Yikes.....

Pearly Whites?

What do you think about my pearly whites? 

I was enjoying some beets and applesauce (hence the bright colors on my face)!

Man vs. Food

What do you think - could you eat all of this in one sitting?  It's the Double Revere Extraordinaire: Two half-pound burgers grilled and topped with cheddar cheese, Apple wood smoked bacon, haystack onion rings and Irish whiskey BBQ sauce. Served between two grilled cheese sandwiches.

If you'd like to give it a try - it's from Reveres Wells Street Tavern in Delafield, WI.  Dave was the only brave one to try....

It's ok - I think we'll just stick with the grilled cheese

Oh and in case you are wondering...the food won on this edition of Man vs. Food

Bears vs. Packers

We all know where I stand on this's not always the easy road to take living in Wisconsin and sometimes I make some concessions. 

Well last weekend we went to our friends, the Pape's, to watch the Packers vs. Falcons playoff game and I decided I might as well pull the tags off this Packers shirt Connor received as a gift...I hate having things go unused.

So I'd like to state for the record - this does not make me a Packer fan and actually because Connor wore this last will free him up to be in orange and blue THIS Sunday when it really counts.

After all - he's just too cute not to share.  I will just choose to ignore the awful Green/Gold color combination and the logo!  Go Bears!

What's For Dinner?

Connor has been cooking up a storm since Christmas. G&G Paulsrud got him this awesome kitchen and he's definitely enjoying every minute of it!

The Boy Must be Growing

So I have about 5 blog posts I've started and never completed and uploaded.  Our internet isn't working at home which is proving challenging for me to get anything up.

So today - a short story and some pictures so at least this post will get up!  On Tuesday - our wonderful "Weekday Mom" (daycare provider just doesn't seem to do it justice) Mandie - told Dan when he picked Connor up  that he seemed to have a larger than normal appetite.  For those that know him, this will be shocking because he already has an above average appetite!

So we come home - he has another extremely large dinner (I'm talking portion size bigger than mine) and 3 glasses of milk.  We clean up dinner and Dan and I are sitting at the table sorting mail and we look into the leaving room and see this...

At first (from afar) I thought he was eating the inside of a stuffed I got a little closer.....

Oh no - he had pulled a loaf of french bread off a shelf in the kitchen, taken it out of its wrapper and was sitting in his chair enjoying a little after dinner snack.....guilty as charged....

Good thing he's so cute!
