Sand and Sun

Saturday the sun was shining and it was warm, so we headed over to the park with Ellie, Darren and Claire! We had lots of fun, swinging, playing and making new friends!

These are our SCARY faces!  Notice the sand covered fingers.....  we had a very gritty taste in our mouths after we "scared" everyone!

This is our cousin Darren, digging in the sand at the pond Saturday night.

Mia found the life jacket in the closet and claimed it as her long lost treasure, it stayed on the entire evening!

Steve took a boatload of girls out to search for "pond monsters"  They did have one sighting.

Kaci came over to play, and found Mia and Owen's kitty, Tigger


Guess What?

Hey Mia and Owen, can I take your picture?  Smile.....
This is so boring
Guess what? We get to go swimming tomorrow!!
Happy Friday!


Happy Monday!


Cheeseburger Casserole

Recently I made this casserole for a good friend and her family.  I’ve been asked a few times for the recipe so I’ll share it with you all!

1 1/2 lb. ground pork
1/4 C. Chopped Onion
Dash of pepper
4 oz. tomato sauce
1/2 C Ketchup (can add more if mixture is dry)
1/2 C BBQ sauce (I used Countryside)
9 slices Velveeta cheese
1 tube crescent rolls
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Garlic Powder
Dill Pickle slices

Brown beef and onion.  Drain.  Add pepper, ketchup, BBQ and tomato sauce; heat thoroughly.  Put into 8x8 pan.  Lay slices of cheese in 3 rows of 3.  Cover with crescent rolls, pinching to seal.  Sprinkle with shredded cheese, dust with garlic powder and place pickles on the top.  Bake 350˚ for 30-35 minutes or until crescent rolls are golden.

You can add mushrooms and use swiss cheese omitting the BBQ for a different flavor!

Firetrucks and Beds

So excited!!

Friday, Rebekah, Auntie Lois and I snuck out of the house and went over to Hudson for their city-wide garage sales.  It was a windy cloudy cold day.  There's nothing a little Starbucks To-go can't help though!  Near the end of the sales we came upon a garage filled with little boy's toys....  Little People diggers, Thomas puzzles, Thomas bike helmets and a FIRE TRUCK BED!  With Owen learning how to use the big boy potty I figured it was about time to put him in a youth bed, where if he needed to get out he could.  Plus hoisting his 40+ pounds up over the crib was getting old.  So we purchased it!  Once we got home, Owen and Mia could not wait to get it all set up and proceeded to get their "driver" (steering wheel) and go to the beach.  Owen has been doing really well staying in it and actually sleeping.

This is their firetruck loaded "with us junk" Owen said.  Mia said "Owen it's not junk it's our stuff"  this vehicle was heading to the beach and then Jana's house!

Auntie Becka made this awesome dinner for everyone.  There were even real live fish in the middle of the table!  

Taste of Dishntunes.com

Tuesday night Mia, Owen, Grandma and I went over to Johnson's for Taste of Dishntunes.com.  I had been notified earlier that the t-shirt design I entered into the contest had won!  So we went over to eat some yummy food!  12 restaurants were there with food, and you purchase tickets to sample from each restaurant.  Mia and Owen had a chicken filly sandwich and cheesecake.  They also liked the pasta from Old Man River.  They told me it was a delicious supper!  
This is the design I entered into the contest, and Owen and I accepting our award!!
