    Pita Bread

    There isn’t much to say about this recipe, expect for that it’s simple.  (I seem to say that about every recipe I share, but it’s true! You’ll never want to buy them at the store again.)  This was my first attempt at making them, and I’m proud to say that only two came out…ahem…burnt.  I made them for my lunch this week, and so far three have mysteriously come up missing.  I blame two big mice that run rampant in my kitchen on a daily basis. These guy’s have been hangin’ around my house for so long that I’ve even named them:  Nathan & Bubba.   I guess that goes to…

    Art Journal

    Me coming home with new journals is no surprise in my household, mainly because I have written in journals since I was a wee one.  I have filled many, many, books.  I’ve even written a real book! Ha!  So, while I have written many journals, they have lacked visually.  Sure, I’ve added a few pictures here and there or used colored ink/paper, but the creativity stops there.  I’ve decided to take on a new challenge of using a different medium to express my day to day happenings and feelings.  I figure I’ll be stumped at first.  But just like when you write, you just have to start typing and before…

    Kids Christmas Reel 2012

    This was our first year, as a family, that we have celebrated and understood the true meaning of Christmas.  It certainly made the celebration more special.   Other than that, I don’t have much to say since it was the typical paper ripping, children squealing festivities, however, I do want to mention that this year we hid Nathans presents around the house with a clue attached to each one that would lead him to his next present.  He really enjoyed it. 🙂   We had a WONDERFUL Christmas this year!   And one more thing! I wanted to say that it was hard for me to take pictures of the little ones…

    I’m not sure if any of you have experienced a tree branch falling on your house, but I’m telling the world that it is not cool.  Not cool at all. The effect of this tree falling could have been worse since my oldest child was standing underneath this very tree when a loud “crack” of the wood warned that something bad is about to happen.  Trusting his instincts, Nathan took off running, luckily in the right direction. Then…BAM–BOOM…along with the entire house shaking. This was proceeded with screaming babies and me running to the kitchen where Bubba was with Scout.  “What in the world was that!!?” A tree branch had…

    Date With A Rake

     We just had our last date with the rake…at least until next year. I don’t know if you know this or not, but raking an acre of yard is hard work!  I’ve never had to do it before until we moved into this house.  Now I want a leaf blower. 🙂  Any way, we made a small pile for the kids to play in.  Scout wasn’t digging it, but Rori loved it. All of the trees are now bare and look ready for winter, but the temps have been so high lately!  I’m beginning to wonder if winter will skip us this year.
