Every year our family goes to the Christmas Festival in Springboro,Ohio. We used to live within walking distance but since we have moved we go back every year. It is a tradition for us. It is in the historic downtown of Springboro and they close off the road so all of the vendors can set up. They have craft tents, entertainment tents, horse drawn wagon rides, kid stuff and all kids of yummy food. We usually go to the parade at noon and then walk the street and cruise the craft tents till we get hungry for lunch. Every year I look forward to a messy gyro and a big bag of fresh hot kettle corn. Its our once a year splurge. I wouldn't spend 7 bucks on a gyro any other time.8o) My kids stopped at the Domino's Pizza booth for pizza. All of that good food and get something they can anytime of the year. Hmmmm Oh well we had alot of fun today and now we can look forward to next year. Smiles 8o)

Kade( Yes there is a body in those blankets somewhere)
This classic Italian entree comes together in a snap, but tastes like it took hours. “It's so tasty and easy to fix,” writes Carolyn Henderson of Maple Plain, Minnesota. “My family always enjoys it.”
These savory biscuits from Lynn Tice of Osage City, Kansas couldn't be simpler to make! With from-scratch flavor and a golden-brown cheese topping, they're sure to be a hit.

|Family Pictures 2007|
I hope everyone had a good weekend! Ours wasn't too exciting. Though we did do something instead of sticking to the house all weekend. Friday night we had a surprise cookout, with the other couples of the home builders group from church, for Jim & Betty Jewett, Jerry & Gloria Snelling, and Mike & Sue Pennellatore. They have cooked for our monthly meetings and retreats so it was a " thank you" to them for all their work. We all had to bring our own meat and then Stephanie Phillips provided the bake potato bar. It was all so delicious! Saturday morning we got up and went to the annual family picture shoot at Portrait Innovations. One thing is for sure,getting myself and four kids dressed up in dressy clothes on a Saturday morning is not fun!Then trying to stay halfway presentable till you arrive is another matter in itself. We arrived and had to wait 45 minutes till it was our turn. It was Kade's nap time so I was trying to keep him happy and awake all at the same time. Ahhhhhhh Through it all I think they all turned out pretty good. Konnor was the worst. He wouldn't stand still or stay in the same place the lady would put him and all his smiles were fake. I guess that is what you get with a 3 year old. Saturday night the kids and I stayed home because Randy had to work. It was so nice getting that extra hour of sleep! Oh I have to tell you about my purchases at CVS. My friend Michele has hooked me onto the deals you can get at CVS. They have extra bucks rewards you can earn for buying different things. Well I had accumulated 13 of them. Saturday night I went to CVS and bought 4 Soy Joy granola bars, 2 bottle of Soft Soap body wash,1 bottle of Scope Whiting mouthwash, and 1 tube of Crest Whiting toothpaste with Scope and I payed .31 cents for everything and I generated 10 more extra bucks. ( I used 7 of my previous extra bucks) So now I have 16 extra bucks to use this week. They have Tide on sale so I will probably try and get that this week. I love getting deals like that! Well today is a typical Monday. Tons of laundry and a messy house to clean up. So Hi Ho Hi Ho its off to work I go. Cya
