Lazy Labor Day

Other than cooking, it's been a very un-laborious Labor Day holiday. We enjoyed grilled burgers, Conecuh, and hot dogs. And most of all...banana pudding. Evan asked for a hot dog and we were shocked when he ate it all. :)

Daniel had his first football practice this past Friday. So glad it went well!

Emma Grace's catapult design was chosen for demonstration at Lego Club.

Catch Up

haven't posted consistently for a while so here are a few pics from the past few weeks.

Sarah Jo hosted a dessert auction/movie night at church to raise money for A21. I made homemade chocolate peanut butter chip cupcakes.

Baby girl thought swinging with a metal pole in her hand was a good idea. :(

My new manicurist. :) We've been pinning  her bangs back as they grow out. She said as I took her pic, "I look so different! Do you think they'll recognize me?" :)

I dropped and broke my crock pot, so I got a Ninja to replace it. Boston butt was my first thing to cook in it. Yum!

Don wanted caramel cake for his birthday, so I made a homemade buttermilk cake and caramel glaze. So good! The glaze was my usual frosting made with half the powdered sugar, it was delicious! 

Our first Lego Club meeting. The challenge was to build an earthquake/mini-trampoline-proof tower. Daniel built the tallest one in his group to withstand the earthquake! They had a great time. :)

Busy a Week

It has been a busy week! VBS was great, though, and worth it to see the kids have so much fun. Wish I'd taken some pics.

Today, they got to swim at the Pratts' house. They loved it, of course. :)

This Week

This week in pics:

LOTS of Go Fish! this week. Definitely got my $1's worth! 

National Sugar Cookie Day - yum!

Kids are already picking out Christmas presents! Sigh.

Getting ready for VBS next week.

Love this spoiled rotten dog!

Saturday, Mama watched the kids so that Don and I could go to the Waldrop/Muzio wedding. It was just beautiful. The extravagant reception was at the Capital City Club and was really a lot of fun. The baked potato bar and the bacon bar were the food highlights. Yum. 

Here's a pic from the world's worst selfie-takers. :)

And here's a pic of the beautiful bride and lucky groom.

Happy Independence Day!

Up early today getting ready for family coming over for lunch. Mama was the only one who came, but we had a great time anyway. It was fun cooking in the kitchen together. We had a delicious meal - salad, steak, twice-baked potatoes, rolls and fruit cake. Yummy. :)

That blank little corner was for the girl. Weirdo.

Finished re-decorating the kids' bathroom today. It is so cute! I forgot to take a before pic - oh well. Looking forward to grilling out and having family over tomorrow for the 4th. :)
