New Book

Happy at work let me borrow a book called "The Face of Betrayl" since she knew how much I love the women's murder club books by James Patterson.  It was great!  If you like James Patterson or the Women's Murder Club, I can tell from the first book in this series these are going to be great too!

Julie and Julia

When the lightening struck our house last we were in the middle of watching Julie and Julia.  We still haven't finished it but it got me thinking that it would be fun to cook through a cook book.  I've been looking at this one...
I usually end up making one of several go-to meals when I do have time to cook.  Here is one of our favorites!

Meat and Potato Lover's Meat Loaf Too
Meat Loaf
1 c quick cooking oatmeal
1 c shredded potatoes
2 eggs
1/3 c ketchup
1 pkg beefy onion soup mix
½ tsp pepper
2 lbs ground turkey or lean ground beef 
Optional Glaze
½ c ketchup
¼ c packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons mustard
Preheat oven to 350F.  Lightly grease a shallow baking pan.  Combine oats, potatoes, eggs, ketchup, soup mix and pepper; mix well.  Add ground turkey or lean ground beef; mix well.  Shape into loaf and place into prepared baking pan.  Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until done and let stand 5-10 minutes before slicing.
To prepare glaze, combine ketchup, sugar and mustard.  Mix well.  Pour over meatloaf during last 15 minutes of baking.
It is SOOOOO good!

Emily and Cassie

I can't figure out how to rotate this picture but it is too cute not to share.  Cassie and Emily are playing a constant game of catch now.  SO precious!

Fathers Day

It's official, we are crawling all over now.  We had to rearrange our furniture to accommodate having a little more carpet available, Emmy loves it!  She has also started trying to pull up.  Precious is growing so fast!
And Grandma Marbybeth and Grandaddy John came to visit too!
Then lightening struck our house and got tvs, the garage door opener, modems, and the sprinkler system.  Ugg!!!  Now we get to learn about homeowner's insurance.  Yay!

8 Months Old

It's hard to believe that our little sweetie pie is 8 months old already!  She has started crawling and it waving and pointing.  And she loves to read her books and play in her walker.

We had a great trip to Lake Murray with David, Linda and Lex to start off Emmy's 9th month.
