Geez I start a kit club and my personal blog suffers.. sorry about that! I know my family is always looking for updates on our family!
Well my casserole turned out.. but my kids hated it! LOL!! My husband loved it though.. and so the two of us enjoyed it and then had it for left overs for like 3 days in a row, while our kids ate their usual.. like chicken nuggets! :)
Life has been crazy around here.. getting those Scarlet Lime kits out last week and this week.. holy cow.. luckily our garage was empty so we had a place to do most of our work. I have also had some other assignments going on from MM and BHG and still needing to in finish up one of them.. and feeling so bad that I am behind. I think with the move, the new kit club and school starting.. life just caught up with me and I haven't had two second to breath.
We just planned (Ben and I) a weekend getaway to our best friend's house in October. Nothing fancy.. they only live in Boise.. (which is only 4 hours away).. but we just needed some time to ourselves and we missed our friends terribly. Plus it's a great "cheap vacation! and I love seeing Liz.. she is pregnant and feeling kinda down these days.. and I feel like i need to go see her and cheer her up!
Braden had another football game tonight and they won! 48-18.. I have to say I am a little surprised at how well his team is playing! I mean they split the 6th grade team this year, in Shelley, because for a small town it was just getting to big. So there are two teams, which meant splitting up the "good" players evenly. This is Braden's first year, so we were just excited for him to play once in a while, but the teams are now so small (like 15 on each team).. that everyone pretty much plays the entire game! I think it's actually better for all the boys, because it's giving them all more playing time and so they are all progressing and getting better. Both of the teams are winning their games (they don't play each other unless they make it into the playoffs).. and so it's fun to feel the camaraderie for both teams.. and to see the kids attend each others games.. they are all such good friends.
Well what else is going on? Allie turned 8 on Monday and will be baptized next month on the 13th! She is really excited and talks about it all the time. She is such a great girl.. we butt heads alot.. but she has sure changed this school year as far as her "whining" sessions. She has been hanging out with some of the older girls in our neighborhood and one girl in particular who is very laid back and not your normal emotional "pre-teen".. and I think some of it is rubbing off on Allie. She is just starting to get past that phase.
Well it's late and I have a few assignments for BHG to finish up in the morning! Loving the "new" "old" house.. love old houses.. specially love the claw-foot tub that I soak in just about every night at midnight.. to give me the energy to stay up another few hours!... need to learn to go to bed earlier..
I just got my BHG mag in the mail this week too! and it features my brand new column with Erica Hernandez.. called Gadget Girls! We take a look at different tools and gadgets each month and test them and give our opinions on them. This month was the crop-a-dile and I LOVED it.. my first time using it! Here is the layout I did with it. Check out the full report in this month's issue!
well night all!
