Random Happenings

I was asked to take photographs during a week of construction for Habitat for Humanity.  It was really fun and they have used several of the pictures on their website. 

Book Club was held at our house after reading John Milton's "Paradise Lost".  The book had been on my shelf for quite a while so I was excited when it was selected for book club.  This was the table spread.  You cant see the devils food cake behind the angle food or the deviled eggs that are out of the frame.  It was a fun night and a very good read!

We learned glass etching in YW.  Sierra came home and made this gift for her dad at Father's Day.

A friend introduced us to the show "Toddlers and Tiaras".  We don't get the TLC channel so we have been watching online.  I'm afraid to admit it, but, it is a bit of an obsession.  We glitzed up a bit (we are very mild compared to the little girls on the show) and had fun taking glamour shots.  The girls even went to the grocery store like that!

It was a happy birthday for me.  Here is one of my newest favorite treats.  Peanutbutter M&M's.  I also have discovered an old classic...Muddy Buddies.  I know they have been around for a while but we just cant make enough of them around here.  Another newer favorite for me is the Dreyers Yogurt blends- especially the strawberry although the blackcherry/vanilla swirl is good too!

Cole and his buddy Austin made cookies one afternoon with their own twist on the classic chocolate chip recipe.  They added caramel sauce and miniature marshmellows.  They turned out very tasty!
