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!!

Tuesday-May 5th-Cheesy Beef and Macaroni

At least that is what Mickey calls it, or well what we had before but I can't find the exact recipie that we used, so we are winging it, and we can make adjustments if we need to.

We are starting with

1 pound hamburger meat
1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
1 to 2 cups of water
1 box of Macaroni and cheese

brown the meat and season it to taste, drain the fat. (you don't have to drain it, but if I don't, it totally grosses me out. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, macaroni, cheese packet and water. Simmer until the noodles are tender, you can add more water as needed. Most likely I will serve this to the kids with corn, because they seem to think corn goes with everything.

Friday May 1st-Drake-A-Bob's 1st Birthday

I just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to my friend Robyn for coming over and helping me get through one of the hardest days in my life to date!! She came over and helped me make a cake to celebrate Drake's Birthday!!

What a difference a year makes... this is Drake 1 year ago!!

And this is Drake NOW!!!

Its amazing how fast he went from being the tiny baby that would fall asleep in my arms to the independent little man that he is today. I always tried to tell him to slow down and stay the baby, but he is determined to growp up, he started walking a few months ago, and just gets bigger all the time!!

Here are just a few pictures from his b-day party!!

Here are the other 3... Mickey, Sean and Jacob all wanted to blow the candles out too!!

Thursday-April 29th, 2009

I don't know what this is caled, but it smelled so good when it was cooking!!

1 pound ground meat
1 cup of un cooked rice
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 table spoon of minced onion
1 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning
2 tablespoons of minced garlic

brown the meat, toss it in the crock pot, add 1 cup of rice. Drain the can of tomatoes into a measuring cup, then dump the tomatoes in and add water to the liquid that you drained from the tomatoes to measure up to 2 cups of water, pour it in add your seasonings, mix together and let it cook 2-4 hours, or even longer, I use the keep it warm setting and it cooked for 6 hours.

The kids ate it, but I had to add ketchup to it, to get them to go crazy for it!! But everyone is different!!
