What a difference a week makes

Posted on March 11, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Last week on this very day my kids had a 2 hour delay due to our 1 inch of snow. LOL
Today the high is 77 and we are all in shorts. I am trying to not get use to it though. They are calling for freezing rain in just 2 more days. 😦

Men – ugh!

Posted on March 5, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Where have I been you ask. Well DH decided on Sunday night that he wanted to take Window’s Vista off the PC and put on XP. When I asked him if I would still have everything his responce was “Sure you will”. Yeah, um, 4 days later I am still sitting here without email, CS4, or LR 2. But he has his iTunes working that’s for sure!

So until I get my stuff working I guess I am taking a little break. 😦

I hope to be back soon.

No, I don’t live at Toys R Us.

If you don’t hear from me for a few days it’s because I got lost in this PIT!


Seriously, this is only 2 of my kids room. Do you think they are spoiled? Um yeah, I think so as well.

Another love of mine

Posted on January 2, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

First off, Happy New Year everyone!

This is me and my Alex. He is my 3rd son. Alex holds a very special place in my heart. It took DH and I 4 years and one loss to get pregnant with Alex. And while he is likely the reason I have a few gray hairs, he can also be the sweetest boy. Every morning I will ask Alex what he dreamed about the night before. Without fail the answer is “loving on you”. He is also telling me all the time “you are the best Mom I have ever seen”. OK, how does that not melt your heart? I really cherish my Alex so much. I have no clue what I am going to do without him when he starts kindergarten next year.


Also, I have to tell you that Alex is really a 16 year old rockin’ boy stuck in a 5 year old boys body. That is why he has to wear the backwards baseball hat. If he takes it off he is cute and will cry. This ontop of Alex’s adult drum set that his Grandpa got him makes my house a wild place!

One last hurrah

My good friend Kristie is always posting yummy recipes on her website. I figured since the New Year is approaching fast, and so are my resolutions, this might be my last chance to post one of my favorite, simple chocolate chip cookie recipes.

Hershey’s Classic Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

First you will need:

img_00021 c butter, 3/4 c granulated sugar, 3/4 c packed light brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 eggs, 2 1/4 c flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 c Hershey’s chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375

Beat butter, both sugars, and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy.

Add eggs, beat well


Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended.


Stir in chocolate chips.


Drop by round teaspoons onto well greased cookie sheet.


Bake 8-10 minutes.

img_0018I was able to get 5 dozen out of this recipe.


And last, but not least, thank you all for your sweet comments on my picture I did with Austin. Y’all are too kind!
And Plainmama – I used Pioneer Woman’s PW’s B&W action on that picture.

I found a way to stick to my diet in the new year. Fake food!


Seriously, this is one of the most played with Christmas presents in our house. Even the big boys (13 & 10) pretend to make, sell and eat McDonald’s play food.
