General Relief Society Meeting

Joe fed the kids grilled cheese tonight.

I went with some friends and watched. . .

the General Relief Society Meeting.
for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

It was a nice dose of inspiration and a reality check :)

Check it out here on the LDS website.

G-Force :)

We adopted a guinea pig back in May
 (well actually 2--that story to be updated soon, you can find it in May)

Jake
Jakeson
Jakers

Any of the above he can be called.


Peyton loves his guinea pig, so does Addison.

They are very good about taking the responsibility for his feeding and cleaning.


Addison had soccer tonight--every Friday night :)

What was for dinner?  Day 302

The kids had free hotdogs at soccer.


Joe and I had this little number by Mel's Kitchen Cafe.

Ham and Pasta Skillet Dinner

She always has yummy stuff and this one only took about 30 minutes to make.

And it tasted good.

What's for dinner? Day 300

Tonight Peyton had Pack night for Cub Scouts.

They had a uniform inspection (first one).  Which made me need to get it gear and put his badges on his uniform.  He has had his shirt since February and some patches soon after.  And I am only now getting them on?!?!  Yikes!

We needed something quick for dinner.

We had some yummy sandwiches found here.

Ham and Cheese Sliders




I should have left them in the oven longer to get the cheese a little more melty, but they were good.

What's for dinner? Day 299

We had a delicious, very quick meal tonight.

I had a little complaining from Peyton becuase of the onions and green peppers in it, but. . .

I thought it was delish!!

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

(not my picture :(  Forgot to take one with the drama of the onions and green peppers)

I did not make the cheese sauce however.  I just used a slice of Provolone with a little mayo and mustard on the bun.  I may try the sauce another time.  But the slice was really quick and yummy.

What's for Dinner? Day 298

We really like Alfredo--so in an attempt to try a healthier version. . .


Skinny Chicken Broccoli Alfredo
with Homemade Breadsticks


Let's just say it didn't taste like Alfredo.  The breadsticks were good however :)

It wasn't horrible and the kids actually ate it without complaint!

But I probably wouldn't make it again.

Off They Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder. . .

I had a weekend all to myself.

I am pretty sure that it has been years since that has happened.

Pre kids!

Joe took the kids with a friend and his 5 kids to Ensign Ranch in Eastern Washington.

They went "camping".

They. . .

 didn't get much sleep
rode horses
played on the obstacle course
ate chili dogs
and pancakes
told stories
enjoyed nature

AND GAVE MOM A BIG BREAK!!

 Peyton is riding Caleb

Peyton is helping out with the horses along with Elder Curfew-one of the caretakers at Ensign Ranch
 Addison was riding Banner


Dinner, daddy style :)

I didn't go out and play much but it was a lovely weekend.

I cleaned out so many rooms in the house and got everything nice and organized.
I watched multiple chick filcks and cried and most of them :)
I organized a bunch of files in my office.
and went to dinner with some friends!

And then I was ready when they all came home today!

It was a nice break and a nice reunion!


As a side note:  my sister said she was firing my from the blog world if I didn't catch things up :)  And I won't be able to print an accurate book at the end of the year if I don't get things caught up.  I'll get it all caught up over the next week :)  Just for you Amber!!
