Katie came home with this for daddy!! So cute!!!!!!
On the Eve of Valentine’s Day we had our Valentine’s dinner……Hairy Sausage and Sauce.. I know it sounds like a bad X rated movie, but it was GOOD and the kids had a blast helping make it and eating it!!!!
6 pieces of dry spaghetti and one piece of sausage…….
Katie focusing intently in her “job”! She did great!!! None of the other kids wanted to help..they just wanted to eat…. especially Jake, he was sooo pissed that we were taking so long to make dinner!
Here is what it looks like BEFORE you put it in the boiling pot of water!!!
AFTER the boiling process…. Don’t they look cool???
And with the Tomato and Basil sauce.. It was a HUGE hit for dinner… with garlic bread it was definitely a “make again” dish!!!
We spent Saturday night after the conference at my friend Kim Kupka’s house! We had some much needed girl time and I went through her house (which is beautiful BTW) taking pictures of random stuff!
This is a light in their entry way….First one is straight of my camera!!!
With a little photo editing!!! LOVE IT!!!
Today I was in Kansas City, MO for a TSOT – Tastefully Simple on Tour Conference. Over the course of two weekends, there are several training events held regionally over the nation! Jill Blashack Strahan who is our Founder and CEO made a brief appearance at our event! It was so awesome to see her!! She’s an amazing speaker and I could listen to her all day long!!!
This is the newest member of our house… Her name is Lilly Krystal and she comes everywhere with us and Katie is even co-sleeping with her in a crib right next to her bed! We went out the other day and Miss Katie forgot her diaper bag…. It nearly caused a breakdown!
Oh I am sooo behind in posting.. so there will be a flurry of pictures posted between tonight and tomorrow!!!! I …WILL…GET…. CAUGHT… UP!!!!!
Bridge near The ARCH in St Louis, MO… Straight from my camera……
After a little photo editing! I LOVE THIS PIC.. this is why I added it to my blog header on www.vannicefamilyjourney.blogspot.com
So this time out from pictures is sort of my fault… well you would think it’s ALL my fault, but technically I suppose it is. I have been snapping pictures and just have not had a chance to download them to my computer. I went to get the SD Card out of the camera last night to update and get caught up… well… it wasn’t there.. it was in my computer and all the photos that I had taken are gone or never were.
So my fault….. sort of.. You would think that the “NO CARD IN CAMERA” warning would have tipped me off. I guess that’s what happens when I have numerous sick kids – not felt good myself—and trying to get ready to leave for Kansas City today! I am taking my camera and I PROMISE to get caught up sometime this weekend! I am going to be photographing something VERY VERY SPECIAL TONIGHT so those will be up as soon as I am able to have some editing time and computer time later this weekend!!!
I promise I have not forgotten…. just been extra blonde and extra preoccupied!
