Two cakes for April Fool’s Day Dinner

Guess what? Mama just got the kids good :). It was one of the funnest April Fools Day dinners we’ve had in a long time. I took everything over to my Mom & Lee’s house to prepare. No peeking that way! The kids came over with Super G. after school for supper. We had cake […]

Wordless Wednesday – What’s on my kid’s camera today?

This is the second time I’ve found a picture of my Mom with a gun on my son’s camera. Hmmmm, maybe Mom should have been a sniper? Or a sharp shooter, or? I don’t know how he gets her to pose for these but it’s great! This is also an other reason you have to […]

A Thousand Word Thursday

This is one of the types of photos I frequently find on my camera. How they arrive on my camera is a mystery and I am always amused and sometimes a little miffed when I find strange things there. Especially torturous things done to my pets (such as this photo). This one however made my […]

Silly Kids

Imagine you have 2 children, they are 13 & 8, they like to argue…with each other. You often wonder if you get through to them at all. Say on Valentines Day you go shopping with your mom…for 7 hours….let’s just say you leave the kids home….with your hubby (insert evil laugh here). What if they […]
