Do you think...

she is writing out a new recipe?

Maybe she is just tweaking an old one.


Why would you put a UPC sticker thing on the BOTTOM of a skillet? ugh...thankfully I turned it over....hopefully I got all of the sticky stuff off..


This might seriously be worth it!! Of course then I wouldn't be able to complain about my least favorite household chore. DH if you are reading...This would make my DAY!!!! hehehehe

100 Days of Thankfulness #10/ Beach Day

I know this is a very long post...but I could not talk about the beach without mentioning why I am thankful. It could have turned out so very bad!!

We spent yesterday at Carlyle Lake. It is as close to a beach as you can get stuck in the middle of this great country. The day was planned by our Sunday School teachers. They have a boat and invited our class and their families to go tubing and skiing, and for a BBQ. We had a good time. The Man, TA, and AJ all went tubing. The boys were so excited and loved every minute of it.

Sweet Pea and I played it conservative and stayed in the boat. The Man rode the tube by himself. He had a blast..and eventually fell off. I would have loved to have video, or pictures of his wipeout...but I was too busy hanging on to Sweet Pea and the boat and fearing for my life. The Man did a great job holding on. The driver had to do lots of close turns and high speeds to get the man loose. Oh how I wish I had a third hand to hold onto the camera...


100 Days of Thankfulness #9

I am thankful for ...

friends that are willing to go out for mommy time in the middle of the night...LOL.

Lincoln Museum

A few weeks ago we went to the new Lincoln Museum for a short mini vacation. I have to tell you that it was really good. Here are some pics:

Here is all of us standing with the Lincoln family.

There was a children's area that had period toys and dress up and a old time log cabin kitchen. The kids loved it.

Anna playing at the dollhouse that is a replica of Lincoln's house.

Adam and his Lincoln log house.

Anna churning butter....I thought a good friend of mine would appreciate this one..

Thomas and his Lincoln log house.

I really wanted to boys to wear the Confederate and Union soldier costumes and get a picture of them fighting...okay or just standing...but they wouldn't cooperate.


Pretend that picture is here!

Both boys at the Lincoln Log table

Here's Sampson

The newest member of our family!!

Yes!! We are crazy...but the kids love him.

He is a terrier mix. I am hoping not Jack Russel terrier...but who knows. I just have a ton of work ahead of me. Well, at least we are not schooling right now.

My Big Helper...

For Christmas Sweet Pea got her very own set of dishes...real ones. She has casserole dishes, pizza pans, whisks, wooden spoons, a colander, and all sorts of other things..and they are just her size...small. So last night we made mac and cheese for dinner and she was my big helper. I just had to share some pictures.

Here she is helping me put the cheese in the mixture.

Stirring her mac and cheese in her very own dish.

Ready to eat.

She was really thrilled to be helping and using her stuff.
