I just wanted to say 'Hi!'

Gosh I have been busy these past few weeks!  I feel like I have been neglecting you guys!

So....what is new with me?

Well, I got a new camera!  Oh my gosh!  I LOVE it!  I got the Sony Alpha Nex3, it is AMAZING!  The camera is SO light and the pictures are just WOW!

I am still learning how it works but I am getting better!

Sorry, I went a bit overboard on editing but I still LOVE it!

Hmmm...over the weekend we went to visit my mom and dad and also went to visit my grandparents.  We took the girls to a little park and let them play for a bit...then someone found a snake.  Yeah, I was totally done at that point!  HAHA!

Sunday was church.  Monday I did laundry.  And MORE laundry.  And even MORE laundry.  I seriously think I did 5-8 loads and folded about 20 loads!  I am not even kidding you!  We have 3 bags to donate and even more laundry to do.  Sorry, not even going to show you a pic of THAT mess.

Yesterday I did a few more loads of laundry, finished a cake and took it to the church for a funeral dinner, came home and got ready to take Mads to dance.

Tonight is church and in a bit I have more cleaning to do.  I also have some FUN posts lined up for Thursday and Friday so stay tuned for those.  Saturday we are going to an Easter Egg hunt (seems SO early for that) and Sunday is church.  OH!  Friday I have a coupon swap!  WooHoo! 

So after this busy week what does next week look like?  Pretty much the same plus adding Easter in and getting ready for MG's birthday.  Life rarely slows down around here and is actually a lot busier most of the time.  When it does slow down I seriously have no idea what to do with myself.

I hope you all are having a great week!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
