Maybe this should say "My Weekly Ramblings?" LOL Oh well, I'm doing what I can. I've tried to update since Monday but Blogger just doesn't like me and Photobucket has decided to not like me either. It may be time to move on soon. Xanga is looking better and better each week.
Let's see...since I last posted, we went to the park. (Just imagine happy photos of kids running around having fun.lol)
Got to visit with my sister. She flew down to visit while my brother was in the hospital. He has pneumonia but will recover.
Did the whole P.E. thing twice this week. I had Jon take pictures for Allison's portfolio today. They came out great. Just imagine little girls and boys mauling Allison, while the teacher tries to keep her from falling over...lol
On Tuesday we began working on some really neat File Folder games for Isaac. You can see them at http://www.mormonchic.com/crafty/filefolders.asp They were easy to put together and Isaac really likes them! I wish you could see ours. We didn't have any color ink so we printed out the black and white ones and colored them ourselves. They turned out nice. Just imagine them.lol
On Wednesday, the older kids and I went to WinnDixie and bought $78.08 worth of groceries for $45.67 and received two coupons for $14.00 off my next purchase.
We also covered Sophia in bubbles on the living room floor. That's a pretty cute photo too.
I'm going to at least put some recipes up next on the blog. I made apple cinnamon muffins and pineapple-orange-banana muffins this week, in addition to my usual chocolate chip muffins.
Oh, I've found that you can use Chocolate Silk brand soymilk for the liquid in pancakes and muffins for an awesome chocolate-chocolate chip muffin/pancake recipe! Very tasty!lol You all must know by now that I NEED chocolate in the morning or I just don't function.lol
I almost forgot that we carved pumpkins on Sunday after church. We used sharpies to decorate the little pumpkins and hopefully will be able to cook them after halloween. The big kids carved theirs and we roasted the seeds. I found a recipe on Allrecipes.com and they turned out good. The kids said they tasted like popcorn. Just melt 3 tbsps of butter on a cookie sheet in the oven on 350. Add washed seeds and salt to taste and roast them for 45 minutes stirring every 15.
Well, now you all are caught up. I'm grumpy about the whole photo thing but at least you all don't think I dropped off the planet.lol
