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,

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.

For Such a Time as This

You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
