Well my oldest little girl turned 9 this past week and we had celebrated well over a week! Needless to say we had lots of good food, fun and were blessed to spend some time with family and friends. Here are a few pictures of the fun!
cake first... yeah that's how we roll!
listening very carefully to the directions for the scavenger hunt.
the hunt is on and the children are running wild!!

the next day, we made it through the night!
With all of the partying past us now it time to think about clean up and Fall recipes that I can make in one dish! I was reading one of my favorite blog sites, The Pioneer Woman whose recipes are done in pictures and funny stories and ran across some great ideas for dinner this week. If you haven't checked out PW you need to take a minute to check her out, she is hilarious! Of course the other site that I adore and get most of my ideas from, Orgjunkie, has allowed me to fill in the rest of my days with other menu planners' ideas! So here goes with the plan. . .
Ok so here it is Tuesday, obviously I'm running behind on my planning. I started the blog on Sunday, got kicked off the computer by the hubby. Started back at it yesterday, again kicked off the computer by hubby. Sent him to work today, finally get to finish it! I suppose better late than never is a relevant saying at this point.
Sunday - Out to dinner
Monday - Spaghetti and salad
Tuesday - PW corn chowder and corn bread
Wednesday - BBQ turkey, Twice-Baked-Potatoes
Thursday - PW roasted-vegetable-minestrone
Friday - Pizza-Casserole and cheese sticks
Saturday - left over soup and sandwiches
Our breakfast this week will consist of cereal, fruit, breakfast burritos, wheat waffles and peanut butter
Lunches for us are varied since I have to make lunches for all of us separately. For Tony salads and fruit (his request!) Kaitie, soup, leftover spaghetti, sandwich, ravioli for the main courses, fruit, chips, and a drink to finish it off. And for myself, well, whatever I feel like throwing together between laundry and dishes!
We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:7
Have a blessed week!
