that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

Titus 2:4-5

Rain Rain Rain

It has been raining and raining here of late. This morning I felt like I was on Noah's ark, it was raining so hard. We woke up to a river running in our back yard. The kids love it when there is a river in the back yard. A long time ago, we made boats and floated them down the river.

 I tried a new recipe called Upsidedown Taco pizza...I found the link at Tracy's blog, Musings of the Monroe Family. It came out looking good, but the Fritos on the bottom were all soggy. Now I didn't follow the recipe exactly, I changed it a bit and made more...we are a big family. Next time I would make it with only fritos on top. But the meat mixture is delicious.

 Today we made a box cake mix, and I let our little girl decorate it. She made it look delicious!
Can't wait for desert! I think it will go good with some ice cream. Yummy!

This is my newest endevour. I have been wanting to learn to make cakes with fondant. I finally bought a few items and some fondant...they are expensive! I have to say fondant doesn't taste that good, but it sure looks pretty!

                      Here are some flowers that I made. The last flower was made by our little girl! 
                                           She is quite good at artsy type projects.


  1. Glad to hear you tried the frito pie - too bad it got soggy though :( I'm trying a "new" mexican casserole tonight since I have to use some things up around the house. I love mexican food. Hope your kids enjoy fun rain puddles!!

  2. Hi Tracy!
    Thanks for stopping by. I hope you post the Mexican casserole. I love Mexican food, and would love to see what you make.
