My talented cousin, Sherah, took some amazing pictures of my beautiful sisters, Erin and Michelle, who are graduating from high school! You just have to go to Sherah's blog and click on the slide show.
(For those in my family who were momentarily excited because I actually posted but then were disappointed because they have already seen the gorgeous pictures....I don't have anything to say but "busy, busy, busy.")
Hopefully I'll have another post of my sister-in-law's baby shower this weekend. Here's a sneak peak of the theme:
One of my all time favorite breakfasts is Cheerios (or off brand) with bananas. I was shopping the other day and saw a "deal" for the new Banana Nut Cheerios. I also had a coupon (but all in all it was not a good deal) so I bought it.
While it wasn't awful, it surely didn't hit the spot. Then I laughed when I realized I had bananas and Cheerios (an off brand) so I could have a much better breakfast. Ahhh well....live and learn.
I bought this Gingerbread house kit in January 90% off because we had so much fun making our own last December. We finally pulled it out of the pantry and tried it last week. Here's the result. At least now I know to make my own from graham crackers. This kit only had three types of candy, and I never got the icing to work quite right. The only real plus is that the house was pre-made. But when we made them in December, everyone had different shapes to their houses which added to the fun.
One of the best parts of Branson was the fish hatchery. We learned a lot (thanks to a very eye-opening trout movie) and were entertained by watching the kids feed the different sizes of trout. And it was super cheap (free except for the .25 a cup for the fish food!)
Here's some pictures from that day.
t Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the beautiful Horizons by Marriott resort that we stayed. I wish we would have gone when the outdoor pool was open. But it was very nice. We had a great vacation in Branson without going to any shows and only going out to eat once.
Kara's new favorite snack is homemade popsicles. Part of the reason she enjoys them, is that she "helps" me make them. We pour water and apple juice into these molds I got from Ikea. Healthy and delicious! My kind of snack. I wish I could find something I enjoyed like that!
We went to Branson a few weeks ago with my family. On our way we stopped in Springfield to visit the Bass Pro Shop. Here are some pictures. Kara did a great job taking pictures until a "stranger" (as she put it) wanted to take a picture of the whole family. Then look what happened!! I wanted a family picture (even though we all looked so "glamorous" from a day in the car) because 4 years ago we took this one:
