Catch up

How come it always seems like I am trying to play catch up when it comes to posting? I told you I would let you know how Kaitlyn did in the Spelling Bee and I never did. Well she did better this year,She made it till the 6th or 7th round(I cant remember) She messed up on "invisible" She got nervous and spelled it with -able- instead of -ible- oh well. Like I told her,making it into the spelling bee is an accomplishment on its own. there were only 18 out of all of the 4th,5th, and 6th grade classes. Maybe next year.
This is just a picture I took before we left for church on Sunday. Konnor is in a really bad stage for taking pictures. He like to screw his face all up in what he thinks is a smile. This is the only one that turned out halfway decent. Aren't they cute?
This will be a busy week for us so hopefully I can get more posted towards the end of the week. TTFN....

I bought him some biter biscuits. I think he likes the strap better.LOL
Sitting in his usual spot on the kitchen counter while I worked in the kitchen. I turned around and this is what I found. I guess he was going to make his own menu using all of these cookbooks.
Standing in his first snow. It was deeper than this but he wasn't heavy enough to go to the bottom.The seven month chair picture. I have spared you the past couple of months but I couldn't resist this one.

Well I guess that gets all of the pictures out of the way. I hope you all had a good weekend. We had a quiet one at home. Which was very nice!! I figured I would get on the ball and actually make my menu plan out for the week on Monday. Good idea huh. Nothing gourmet this week either but here it is.

Monday: chicken and rice

Tuesday: beef stew

Wednesday: breakfast for dinner- pancakes and sausage links

Thursday: Ham, mash potatoes,green beans

Friday: tortellini Alfredo

Saturday: chicken strips

Sunday: Easter dinner with family

Kaitlyn is in the spelling Bee again this year at school. It is tomorrow so I will try to post some pictures and how she did. So as most Mondays go around here. Laundry here I come........

Dave Ramsey


Just let me say that I am upset with Blogger right now!!!!! I have posted this 3or 4 times now and every time it tells me there is an error and clears every thing. So I had to put my pictures into Picasa so you could see them. I thought about just telling you to go to my friend Michele's blog to get the latest scoop on our Dave Ramsey trip but I kept trying to get it to work. We had a great time despite the horrible snow storm and even more horrible road conditions. Dave was so fun to see in person. He has so much energy and just has a way about motivating you to get " Debt Free". I just wanted to say a BIG thanks to our friends Randy and Michele J. for inviting us. I just want you all to know that Randy J. is a great driver. Despite the snow covered highways,whiteouts,frozen window wipers, and really stupid drivers who don't know how to drive in snow, he got us there and back safely. Thanks also to my parents and my in laws for watching my kids. One of my favorite things that Dave said was" God loves us so much and He wants us to succeed,even in our finances.He is just waiting on us to ask HIm for help." I know I cant wait for the day I can yell" WERE DEBT FREE!!!"

I will post my menu for the week later. I am still working on it.Have a good Monday!!
