Love these guys!

You gotta love them! These kids crack me up. They seem to always be doing something funny or crazy. They each have such fun personalities and I am so thankful to have them in my life! They are awesome!

You got to try these!

It's been awhile, as usual, but I guess I will finally post a few pictures of those darn cinnamon rolls I made almost 2 weeks ago. They were amazing! I was quite pleased with the results and my #1 child couldn't keep her hands off of them. I guess I could post the recipe in a day or two but if you want to make them go to to find the recipe. The top picture is before baking and the second picture is the warm and gooey pan of cinnamon rolls. I dare you to make them!

Cinnamon rolls anyone?

So, I am attempting to make cinnamon rolls tonight. It has been years since I made them. I found this amazing recipe on I love her website and she also has some other really good looking recipes that I plan to try. If you know me well, I love to collect recipes and recipe books! I guess you could call it a hobby. I love trying new things and what's funny is that when I make soups and chowders I never use a recipe! Some like to call me the "queen of cream" because I can make a mean white sauce. I use white sauce for lots of things like: chowders, creamed soups, tuna casserole, fetuccine, homemade mac-n-cheese, etc. As soon as I get the kids to bed, the roll dough should be about ready for me to finish. Maybe I will take a picture of the cinnamon rolls tomorrow and post my creation.

I sure don't know what my deal has been lately but I have been so cranky and crabby! PMS? Who knows! I hope it will pass soon so that I can be a little bit more bearable to be around. My poor kids have to deal with me and I feel sorry for them. They are so good and I need to be a lot more patient. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for all of us. If you so happen to stumble upon my blog..feel free to leave a comment. Until next time...

The last few weeks have been pretty busy and I am fianlly taking some time to share a couple of photos that I have been playing with in my Photoshop Elements. What do you think? I am just trying to figure out the program and it was fun to come up with what I did on these photos. I am SO not a professional but it is really fun to tweak with pictures and see what fun things can be done. Of course, I think my kids are the cutest in the world and they are my favorite things to shoot (with a camera, that is). It's off to bed. I've had too much fun playing and will sign off for now!

Can't believe that it's already 2008! Where in the world did 2007 go? We had a fun New Year's party at my sister's new house. We usually go to Utah for New Year's but the roads were not that great and I wasn't about to go to Utah with the kids all by myself. Daddy D had to work and I was going to go and I'm glad that the weather got in the way so I didn't have to drive by myself. We sure did miss hanging out with the other family, though. We always have so much fun with them and the food is awesome! Hopefully we will all be able to go at the end of January.

So, today we are cleaning the house like crazy. I finally got Christmas down and my house is looking more put back together every minute. Daddy D is home today and is taking some time to watch some football. The kids are cleaning their room and though it's not a fun job for them they are getting it done. I am proud of them! I will post some more fun holiday pictures on the next post. I need to get them uploaded and then I will share. Have a great day to anyone who might stumble upon this blog! Until next time....
