2017 Blue Jeans Week 13

Getting back to the normal routine after spring break is always a challenge.  5:30 comes really early!  How many weeks until Summer??? :)  but we are all good.  Miss O is in the high school musical of The Music Man which she performs next week, so that keeps her busy.  Miss E had her first track meet.  Hello spring and the crazy of April/May here we come!  As I look at the calendar I remember that April/May easily top December as the busiest and craziest time of the year here.  At least we don't have a graduation to deal with this year....but next year...but let's not think about that now :)  Take a look at our week. . .
We visited a local African Safari museum.  It was pretty cool.  Don't they look excited?  You would think they would look scared with those guys behind them...

Pretty cool African instruments and lion on the wall!

Mr J loves to make a few things---peanut butter cheerios bars are one of his favorites--muddy buddies are a close second :)

Love hearing this girl play the piano!

Did some pictures today.  Sure love these kids and sure miss the one not there!  But just a few more weeks and Miss A will be home for the summer!

I read a book about the filming of this movie and then decided that my kids needed to see it.  I didn't remember it was 4 hours long!  But is was fun, except they were all very disappointed with the ending, "What!!!??? That was the end???!!  That is a horrible ending, Mom!"  It still amazes me that they started filming this in January and released it in November of the SAME year!

Hello spring!  Saw this recipe for carrot cake on Mel's Kitchen Cafe and had to make it.  It is sooooo good!!!  Love carrot cake with cream cheese frosting--of course!

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a great week!

  1. Love that picture in the woods of the kids but sad you're missing one. Ar least she'll be home for summer soon and these next few week will fly by since they are so busy. That carrot cake looks yummy. We do cakes at work for our group and carrot is a favorite so I get it many times a year ;0)
