365- 56,57,58

                                   Bubble fun in Maw-Maw's backyard

 Here is Anna Rose at her first parade, sporting some sass AND the sweet outfit I made for her.  Not the shirt (I wish I did)  But this WAS my first attempt at pants.  I will be making more for her.  They were so easy.  I bought the pattern from a local mom ( I love buying local) of 8 children.  She sells her patterns here.

These are my Breakfast Cookies.  A hungry customer awaits in the background.

365-54, 55

Spiders freak me out but this one was cool!!  You can see how much we've been using outside toys but NO MORE.  Welcome to south Louisiana Spring.  We've missed you.
I know you are probably tired of seeing my little one but she is not only a cutie but more than willing to smile for Mommy.

365-52, 53

My oldest and sweet 14yo daughter, Gabbi.  She HATES being in front of the camera but she was more than willing to smile at our latest field trip.  A visit to the cupcake shop with her 2 besties wasn't all that bad. 
My guys.  It is a blessing to have a husband who works shiftwork (sometimes).  It allows him to come on field trips.  I think he would have taken off if he needed to for the cupcake one.

365White blood cell counts normal- check

Children not hacking up lungs-check

No one has any liquids running from their noses-check

Mom caught up on laundry- excuse me while I snicker.   Ummmm, no

A girl can dream. 
I'm not sure I can make this 365 thing.  Life is flying by me.  Chruch commintments, homeschooling, scouts may be too much for daily pictures.  But I AM trying.

Here is my feeble attempt to catch up.

It's been so nice here latley.  These are only some of the sweetest girls in my life.  The little one is mine getting her hair done so tenderly by J. 
Five seconds before this she said "I not tired"

Most of the sweet things in my life are not blue eyed and blonde.  So when I had the absolute honor of watching my friend Amy's sweet children, I couldn't help but capture that sweet face.  To be honest Gabbi caught it because I had 12 children under the age of 14 which 11 were 11 and under.  Needless to say, I didn't have much time to take picture.  Asa's face is covered in my chococate chip muffins. 
My attempt at an iced coffee.  Pretty but not as good as CC's.

Mabey at your house mixing playdough is a no-no.  I think it looks COOL.  Emma had so much fun doing this.  Her mother cringed.  :)

One of the only ones I found that wasn't blurry.  That's just how the boys roll.

365-42, 43, 44, 45

We are back.  Waiting on the white cell count of one of my boys to get withing "normal" range but we seem to be at the end of this.  Thanks for your sweet prayers for my family. 
These are some Meyer lemons from my mom's tree.  Almost as sweet and as big as oranges.  I love these. 

My G boy painting his submarine for the AWANA Grand Prix. 

This is my homemade cupcake BEFORE

and AFTER.  Not bad I guess.  Hope your day is filled with love, not just today but everyday.  With a love that only the Lord can supply.

365-41 (catching up)

Imagine a homeschooling mom of 4 who hates cold.  When the cold comes it comes to claim victims and brings with it sickness to a family of 6.  That mom is ME.  The victims, my children.  My two girls went to the Dr. with cough yesterday, I left with both of them having strep.  My 2yo has an ear infection on top of that.  My oldest 14 yo has......drum roll please...... strep, flu and walking phemonia.  OH and not one of them had fever.  The 2 boys haven't gone to the Dr.yet. I'm too scared to bring them.  (only half joking)  So here's what I've been up too.  Sorry Tracy, I am trying so hard.

Yes.  I've been on a food kick latley haven't I?  Well, the weather as of late has made us be home more than usually and......well.......I cook.  These are baked cinnamon sugar yeast doughnuts.  I made the dough last night in my trusty bread machine. Rolled them out and let them rise in my oven.  Dipped them in butter, cinnamon sugar and......yummies in the morning.

It was a Turkey Aundoille Gumbo kind-a day around here today in South Louisiana.  Oh, it was goooooood.  Hot French bread in the background and I got to eat it with my honey before he went to work tonight.
