Happy happy Thursday! I am so excited! Emma has a half day today so that means we get to hang out! YES!! Super fun is in store! And the bonus that I can jump in the shower and she can keep an eye on the little ones is a happy thought! I am hoping we do a craft together :-) she is a super girl, and being the oldest of 7 can be tough at times. I am really quite happy to spend a few hours with her.
I am doing something new here on the blog! As you can see it is titled coming up! So I am going to share with you what is coming up in the next week! I think it will be a great way to let you know what to expect and I hope get you excited to see some new fun things! AND I am going to share some of the Fabulous Chaos that goes on in my life! Some the chaos that can happen with our family! Are you super excited? If not, just pretend you are! You know fake it till you make it!
Okay so next week here is what is happening, keep in mind this is not the whole week, but some of the week!
The best Kale soup ever! It is similar to the soup from Olive Garden! I will tell you guys, super easy and so GOOD! This is one of our families favorites, the KIDS LOVE IT! Yes, the children!
A super cute and fun craft that is perfect for a Valentines gift for a teacher or just someone you love!
THE BEST APPLE CRISP! This is my mother in laws recipe and seriously… getting married was worth it just for this recipe! I am teasing…. sorta! HA!
AND I don’t have a picture but I am having a guest blogger post here! Her blog is ashleemartinsmith.com, she is just an amazing girl and her blog is uplifting and funny and sweet all at once! I am really excited for her to come and blog with me! Yay!
I also wanted to share some of the chaos here, I have determined most of the chaos is caused by cute Charli! With a bit of help from Marsha! I was in the kitchen cleaning up after dinner, that is literally 20 feet away from the bathroom. I am almost done with dishes and I hear Charli telling Marsha how pretty she is and to come back…. uh oh! I found this adorable scene!
That hair is not wet my friends, no that is an entire bottle of facial primer! I washed it four times that night with Dawn dish soap and I could still rub grease out of her hair! IT took FOUR days to get it all out!
And this! Charli found a snack and invited Marsha along! Yes that is my messy pantry! I like how she dumped the box of cookies on the floor and opted for cereal!
I hope you have a super day!! Don’t forget tomorrow is the fabulous five of the week! I am so grateful for all of you who pop in the blog! I love your comments too, they fill me with such joy!
1. The Furner boys from our church gave Emma a ride home, my car had no room…. when they got here, they came in and told me my van door was open ( I knew , it was full of groceries!) I told them that and they promptly brought in all the groceries! So sweet and so very kind!
2.Heston helping Lucy, ” here lets try this” when she was struggling with her backpack. I loved his patience.
3.New Socks… need I say more… no!
4.Heston playing with his cousins at church, I just love that they see each other now on a weekly basis, not just in class but with time to run and play and be buds~
5.Mike kept Marsha home while I took all the other kids to church, usually its me and the three little girls running to Sams and Walmart while the kids are at scouts and youth group, just having two was nice! I missed her, but things went faster!
6. $3.00 chicken at walmart! I was there when all the rotisserie chicken went on sale for the night at $3.00 a piece! SCORE!
