It's SNOWING here! :) My son Eric called to tell me it was snowing where is was and for me to look out of the window to see if it was snowing at home and it was! :) I have Carter and Wesley here with me today because they have the day off because it is a teachers workshop day. Dinner tonight will be ravioli lasagna and garlic bread.

Toothless Tuesday

My grandson Carter lost another tooth over the holiday's and I am just getting around to posting his toothless smile. :) He wanted me to tell you all that the tooth fairy left him $1.00 for his lost tooth. He lost the other one a while back and also got $1.00 from the tooth fairy for that tooth. Here is a pic of him and also a pic with Carter and Tina and after that I took a pic of the cinnamon buns that I made last week and a new pic of Emma after her bath the other night.

Dinner tonight was hamburger goulash and crackers. It turned out really good and hit the spot on a cold winter evening. The local weather guy was calling for us to get some snow today, but I never saw a flake all day! :(

Monday's DUH/OOOPS Moment For Me

Keith asked me to make a homemade chicken pot pie this week. So today was the day. I got it all mixed up and into the oven. Keith gets home just in time for it to come out of the oven. We all sit down to eat and as we are eating Emma is sitting patiently beside Keith's chair waiting for a small piece of chicken. Keith starts looking around on his plate for a piece of chicken to give Emma when it hit me..................
I forgot to add the chicken to the pot pie! OOPS! lol In my defense I did have all three grandchildren here with me all day, so it was a very busy day here today and the people that live with me are lucky I made anything for dinner!

I Was Tagged

My friend Dana over at tagged me. I am supposed to post the 5th picture in my 5th folder and then tag 5 friends to do the same. I'm not sure who to tag so if anyone that reads this would like to play along can do so. It was fun, I had just loaded a bunch of old pics onto my computer and my 5th picture was one of those old ones. The pic is of me and my two sons Matt and Eric. I'm not sure when the pic was taken, probably around 1999 or 2000

Wesley Wednesday ;)

Wesley is here today! :) I haven't seen him in a few weeks. We got a lot of rain and it seemed to rain on his day off from school and Tina cant work when it is raining so he stayed home with her on those days. He has been full of himself today. lol

It's a really cold day here today temps in the low 30's so I put on a big pot of chili for dinner. I'll serve crackers with it. I also made some homemade cinnamon buns for dessert. :)

I woke up this morning to a bunch of dirt tracked all through my house! I followed the trail and it lead me right into my son Eric's bedroom! Grrrrrrr I had to sweep it all up before Wesley got here. When Eric came home from work I asked him why he didn't get the dirt up, he claimed he didn't do it! So I took him into his bedroom and showed him the big pile of dirt that was laying on his floor! He said, "Oh yeah I guess it was me" *insert eye roll* He also said he didn't know he tracked it all through the house because it was dark in the house when he left for work this morning.

I'm Baacckk

Hello! It's been a while since I've blogged. Thanks Barbara and Dana for the giggles. No I haven't been held hostage. lol That made me giggle big time when I read then both. ;)
I've just been super busy. I realized I didn't even blog about the nice Christmas gifts I got. My in laws gave me money so I went to and checked out their big sale. I was able to get TWO pocketbooks for $53.xx! I was so happy. I love Vera Bradley's pocketbooks. Here are the two I got:

My son Eric and his girl friend Linda gave me this Cuisinart Ice Cream maker! I LOVE this thing and it makes the best vanilla ice cream! I haven't tried any other flavor yet. I want to try to make my Mama's banana ice cream in it.

My son Matt have me new stuff for my bathroom. A shower curtain, the rings for the shower curtain, soap dish and tooth brush holder. He let me pick it all out, I picked out the butterfly pattern at Walmart. I haven't taken a pic of it all in my bathroom, but it all looks so pretty in there. My daughter Tina and her kids gave me bathroom towels, they were much needed. my daughter April baked lots of cookies and she gave me a container full of the, they were SO yummy! My sister gave me a Yankee candle with a cute bear. We had a great Christmas. My tree is still up, but its up as a protest. See my husband bought me two storm doors for the front and back door. He bought then Memorial day weekend. The doors are still in boxes in our garage! He was on vacation for two weeks during Christmas and he promised me that he would install my doors. He never did, they are STILL in the boxes in the garage, so the tree is staying until my doors get put up. :x Oh and he also promised he would fix my truck while he was on vacation, its STILL not fixed, the floor in the kitchen is STILL not finished. So the tree is staying up.

It's a cold day here so I put on a big pot of Cheese steak soup for dinner. I don't have any good crusty bread to go with it so I'll make some Bisquick drop biscuits.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of my blog friends! I have pics to share and as soon as I get them uploaded I will be posting them. I don't think I posted about our Christmas, I'll try to get that done soon. We had a nice Christmas. I have Carter and Wesley here today and Keith is still on vacation. He goes back to work Monday so hopefully I can get back to blogging every day next week.
