What a month!

Here we are, July 3rd....already!  Where did this month go?  

HAHA!  Obviously it JUST started has already been a long one.

Before I go any further I want to give a shout out to my oldest of my little brothers.....Blake!
Circa 1980-something...sorry for the blurry-ness
Today is HIS birthday!  WooHoo!!
Our little family

We love you Blakey and hope you have a WONDERFUL day!

Ok, now on to why it has been a LONG month.....already.

So, last week I noticed a hole in one of Mads teeth.  Fantastic.  I made a quick call to the dentist and got an appointment ASAP!  I also made an appointment for MG at the same time just to get her checked out......a lot of money later and.....

She needs a root canal.  Awesome.  Ugh!  But, we aren't real sure they will be able to do one since the tooth is still fairly newish and her being so young the roots may not have closed yet.  The things you learn when calling doctors/dentists.

So instead of a root canal they may do this thing called Calcium Hydroxide Treatments.  Yeah, have no idea what it is or why it is done but, they do it when the roots aren't closed.  BUT, she may just need to get it filled.

All in all...we just aren't sure yet.  I do know when I close my eyes, all I see is.....$$$$$.

So, when do we go in for this treatment, or not, may just be nothing, who knows?


In just a few hours.

Please keep her in your prayers that she will not feel the pain and everything will go smoothly and she recovers just fine.  Everyone keeps telling me it will be OK and she won't feel anything.  People!  I have had root canals done feel something and that something does NOT feel good!  Add me to your prayers as well, that I will stop freaking out inside.

As for MGs checkup?
Waiting at the dentist
It went great.....sort of.....

She has no cavities!  Which is GREAT!

But....she bit the dentist.

I am not surprised though, if you knew this child (no, really knew her...not just see her every now and then), you would not be surprised either.  She is a little stinker!  But a darn cute stinker!

Oh, see that little spot on her cheek?  Remember the rash and diarrhea (sorry, I know that is SO beyond gross) episode we went through last year?  Well, the rash never went away and we still have no clue what is causing it.

We go to the derm about that next week.

What else am I doing this month?  Well, someone put me in charge of 35 bloggers for a campaign over at Cbias!  I know, who would do that?  Right?!?  I can read your mind!  But, it is FUN and a lot of hard work and...I am LOVING it!  I will tell you more about it in a few days...once I have a second to actually think.

So, for right now...that is my month.  At any given time it can change, and I am sure it will.

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL week and a safe 4th.

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. {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
