Weekend Wrap-up 8

What a CrAzY weekend!  My goodness, it was jammed packed!

I am going to to start with Thursday this week since that is when our weekend started.  Thursday was Mads last day of school, she was welcomed home in grand fashion.

Friday was a BIG day!  Friday morning and afternoon we did "house stuff" (laundry, dishes, yard work, etc).  My niece, Andi, graduated from HS Friday night.  After getting cleaned up, it was time for graduation.  MG fell asleep on our way there (it seriously takes us 5 minutes to get to the HS), so her and I stayed in the truck until she woke up.  She finally woke up about halfway through graduation.
 After graduation we went to the family graduation party at Clanton's.

 Saturday the girls and I got up, had breakfast and made strawberry pies.  After the pies set a bit and we got ready, we headed to my Grandpa's for another graduation party, this time for one of my cousins.  On our way into the house we were greeted by some dear friends of mine that I have not seen in a VERY long time.  Always good to see old friends.  We made our way inside and I was met by this little cutie....
This is my little cousin B-man.  He's SO cute!  He is about to be a big brother.  :-)
 This is why we were at my Grandpa's, to celebrate a graduation!  We sure do have some cute kids in this family!  It was great to hang out with the fam.

Saturday night we met up with MORE family and went to the Tulsa Shock game.
Before the game they had some little games and things for the kids to play.
Mads shooting....
MG shooting....sort of.

ALL the kids, plus Lisa and my Aunt Dee, shooting.
We were at the game to honor my cousin Lisa.  She was the PE Teacher of the Game.  It was awesome to see her get the award, she is so deserving!

It was a lot of fun!  Although the Shock lost at the very end, we had a blast!

Sunday the girls and I came home then went to church Sunday night.  Extreme took the kids to the park and we had popsicles.  The kids had a blast!

Since I was gone most of the weekend and hubby had to work, we celebrated my birthday on Monday.  We went to Joplin and had dinner at Logan's Roadhouse.  It was REALLY good!  Then, we went to Target....of course.

It was a really good weekend, full of family!  This weekend I have a birthday party for a friend and I will also be watching hubby build our new fence.  I hope you all are having a GREAT week!

Much love,

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

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
