About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Lazy Days of Summer...

   Oh, those lazy days of summer- NOT!  
   We have been running a mile a minute here.  How about you??
 Tonight we made Chocolate Spiders with this fun book...


   Look at how the book breaks up the recipe for Moms and Kids...

   And this is the final product!:)

   We have also been busy meeting friends for Storytime at the library...

   Making forts!  Katie and Mandy are in it right now having a sleep-over.:)

   Having picnics at the park and visiting the ducks and geese...

   It is HOT!  And it's only going to get hotter- sigh...

   As long as I have willing subjects for pictures, I am happy.  Oh, and a Cranberry Tea at Sonic works, too.:)

Jim's Sister use to make chocolate spiders. Good thing I am not at your house to be tempted to eat them! I am trying to give up sugary snacks for a while and see how that goes. Wish me luck :o}

I am a bit afraid of spiders, but not those kind! YUM! And I have got to get to Sonic and try that tea. You've mentioned it before, so I'm gonna have to add it to my list of things to try :)

We're creeping up to the triple digits.....SO NOT looking forward to our months of sweltering heat!

I think we used to call those cookies bird nests. Yes, chocolate by any other name is still choclate and it's still yummy to eat!

Ohhhhh Can I spend the night in the fort? It looks sooooo great!

As do the yummy spiders...

Looks like you guys are starting the summer out on the right foot!
