I started being in the kitchen again this week! Tonight it was homemade mini pizzas and breadsticks. The kids enjoyed helping create these masterpieces!

I was in the mood for comfort food, but I really didn’t want to cook. But when I thought of Country Fried Steak and Cream Gravy, I decided it would be worth it. So after spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen tonight, I came up with this wonderful dinner. It tasted SO GOOD! And there is enough left over for dinner tomorrow night so I won’t have to cook! YAY!

The kids sat out on the porch tonight waiting for Daddy to come home. It took over an hour for Dad to actually show up, but Mom got some really cute photos of JJ & Beth as they waited!

I didn’t get a picture today. I wasn’t really feeling well and I basically laid around all day and worked on my pirate kit. But I’ll share my favorite photo from yesterday’s “Waiting for Dad” photo shoot.

Beth has been an amazing sport this week. JJ has been gone all day to school and she hasn’t had anyone to play with except her mommy, who really wasn’t feeling well. So she brought her toys to my bed and we hung out playing with her new Barbies that her Grandma Smith gave her. I was working on my pirate kit too and I looked over at one point and she was fast asleep! All that playing wore her out!

The kids played extremely well together today. At one point, I could hear lots of giggling coming from their room, when I went into see what they were up to, I found this masterpiece of an amusement park that they had built and the ponies were “going on a ride.”

Today’s funny story: Beth was watching me play one of my favorite computer games – Aperion – and after I died several times in a row, she said “Mom, you’re not very good at this game.” She just calls it like she sees it.
Sundays are the day we add/change up the kids’ chore charts for the week. Beth got mopping the floors and JJ got to deliver all the laundry to the laundry room. I love seeing them do such a good job and learning to help out around the house!
