Why duct tape was invented...

Maneuvering her arms out of the straps, stripping herself, and talking on her cell phone. All, clearly inappropriate while in the car.

Ro-diggity, Super Girl

Pork Chops on the Grill

For Father's Day I made 'Pork Chops on the Grill' cupcakes, an idea inspired by Family Fun magazine. They are brownie cupcakes with frosting piped to be grill slats, orange sprinkles, caramels with a cream center shaped into pork chops, and additional frosting piped on them.

Last night, we had the usual chaos getting the kids to bed. It was late, everyone was overtired, including mom and dad.

I had done laundry that day, so Riley had several piles of clothes to put away. I told her I wasn't happy she hadn't gotten them put away and that if she didn't get them done tomorrow, she'd be grounded. With that, she told me her dad had already grounded her.

Why did he ground you, Riley?

Because I was fooling around in the car and wasn't listening to him.

Didn't you just go to Reconciliation today for CCD?

Yeah, but they just absolve you and all I had to do was say a Hail Mary.

Yes, but you did know not listening to your parents is a sin, right?

I know, Mom, but don't blame me...blame Adam and Eve, it's their fault I sin.

A River Runs Through It

our neighbors yards that is. We got one heck of a rain!

Rowyn's 2nd Birthday

We celebrated Rowyn's 2nd birthday this past weekend, I can't believe two years have gone by already. We had pork, pineapple, green pepper, and onion kabobs on the grill, peas, baked potatoes, and fresh blackberries and strawberries (which are all over her face!). She even sang along with us with her own little rendition of 'Happy Birthday'.

Happy Birthday, Rowyn Camille ♥

Memorial Day 2010

Little Miss Patriotic

Clearly unhappy with sharing the limelight with her sister.

The patriotic dessert trifle thanks to Martha S.
