Food Network Magazine Cookies

Zeke convinced me that I needed to cook up some of the amazing food ideas in this magazine that Bonnie gave us for Christmas.  So we made these Kid Candy Cookies, they had almost 6 cups of candy Gunnar wasn't sure he could fit all the candy in the bowl.  M&M pretzels, choco chips, peanut butter chips, toffee chips and wow they are delicious.  One or two will do it more will make you sick, I'm sick now.

JT created a new drink and a name for it

We went bowling for the work group David works with and they served Famous Daves and then lots of pop.  JT mixed Pepsi with Sierra Mist and named his new creation Pest said more like Pist.  He asked if we wanted to try it and David said no he didn't want top drink his Pist, JT frowned and then said, "I think I will change the name to something else."  Good idea little guy.

Duct tape craze at our house

The kids are crazy about this tape and making things with it.  Cenny make flip flops and bows and a tie.  JT made me a wallet and then removed everything from mine and threw the pink leather one I had away.

David has been walking for weeks now and I go with him almost everyday.  I'm tired and it is early 5AM  yeah and we walk almost 4 miles.  This has taken care of all the wonderful food I had at the conference last week.

Thanks to all the dad out there.

Y cookie cutter

  Gunnar got this cute cookie cutter int the mail with a recipe.  It is an advertisement for the meal plans at BYU, but it is so cute.  I wished we had it before his party.  Amanda made a cute Utah cake and a Minnesota cake with an airplane showing where he was and where he was going, very cute and it tasted good also.

Amanda and I are attending a GT symposium here is Austin and for dinner last night was a Spam feast.  Spam enchiladas, lasagna, spanish rice and loads of salad and salsa.  I commented to one of the planners that even if the presenters were awful, which they are not, I would come next year for the fabulous food alone.  They served sandwiches and salads for lunch and a big breakfast to boot.  Very full on good food.

So sick of socks!!

Socks socks everywhere and yet not a single pair to wear....this is what my kids tell me so I spent a few hours pairing up socks and came up with two full laundry baskets.  One basket colored socks and the other white.  Now I need them to all take their socks to their rooms and stop with keeping them in a basket.  You think it would be easy with them doing most of their own laundry.

JT likes to take his socks off wherever he is and toss them.  Socks everywhere.  I love summer...I ban all sock usage for the summer.

Book signing

Me with author Amanda Hocking

Amanda, my sister, Cenneidigh and I went out to Adams to meet this author and have a few books signed.  I've only read hers on the Kindle so I picked up one I hadn't read and one I had to giveaway on the Book Him Danno site in the next few weeks.  I love meeting authors in person, but I really have to tone it down so I don't scare them.  Every bit of me just wants to scream 'I love your books' but that would scare them away so I try to keep myself in check.  I did pretty well today, no screaming or gushing, or touching.  I'm getting better.
