Back to blogging

What should we have for dinner tonight??

Still debating... I am thinking meatloaf, but if I don't make it to the store to get some saltine crackers, we just might end up with Spagheti or taco salads!!

I made the decision on tuesday that we were going to stick to a budget on groceries this week, and used what we had at home to help me decide what we were going to eat this week! I actually did really good at Winco and stayed to the list, with the addition of Brownie Mix, but I can use that as a dessert sometime this week.

Last night was Tator Tot Casserole.. A huge hit with the kids, and since it was cheap and easy, my guess is that it will make it on the menu for next week too!!

Alright, I am off to the cubbard... I will report back tomorrow with an update about dinner and with my plans for next weeks menu!!

Diet Tip-Eating Healthy

Remember to eat your carbs early in the day!! Bread is a great breakfast, because it will give you energy later in the day!!

My favorite breakfast is sour dough bread with butter, garlic salt and Paresan (however you spell that) cheese!!

Great with leftover spagetti too, or even turn it into a grilled cheese sandwhich with some Velveeta Cheese


Thinking something with Hamburger meat since Robyn and Jacob are suppose to come over!! Any suggestions??

Good Morning~~

I am just so excited to be able to watch the morning news today and drink my coffee while everyone is awake, that I thought that I would take the time to blog!!

What I am working on this week!!

I am working on getting all my craft stuff together for the carnival out at soccer, I brought the boxs out in the living room, and the kids were so excited, needless to say the material is everywhere, but I am going to take the blankets that they latched on to, and turn them into new blankets for them!!

I am still at home with the kids, money is tighter then I would like, but we are hanging in there the best that we can. All we can do is have faith that the lord has a plan for us, and hope for the best!!

Randy has had a crazy week, and is working his normal days off this week, which at first I didn't like, but then thought this is not the right attitude, and changed it to... I am excited that they allowed him to work these days, because then instead of loosing 30 hours of pay this week, he only looses 10.

I have also got the kids back into church in the last few months, and I feel so blessed that they have enjoyed it as much as they have. Mickey loves her teacher Miss Kristen, and talks about her non stop!! Sean like the class so much that he will war his big boy underwear to church, just to be in "the big kid class" and Drake loves his so much that he no longer screams and yells when I leave him... I also LOVE my class, I feel that they are an amazing group of ladies, and that GOD has placed me just where he wants me!!

I think I hear someone moving around, so I am leaving for now, but will be back soon!!

I hope that everyone has a BLESSED day!!

Memorial Day Weekend

My week last week was probably the longest week of my life, Thusday and Friday were such nightmares, that I spent the whole rest of the weekend at m parents house, just soaking up time with the people that love me. I litterally lived at my parents house (other than sleeping at home). Here are some of the pictures of the kiddos in the pool, enjoying their time outside.

and Drake-a-Bob flying in the air... He loves this...

The sun got us all!! But the kids love to show it off!!
