Monster Soccer

Monster played his first sport this year - Soccer!  He had a great time and even made some goals!

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

These cupcakes were awesome!  They tasted just like a snickerdoodle cookie.

Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken

This crockpot recipe was so easy and everyone LOVED it.  I got this recipe off this blog here

The ingredients are:

--1 can cream-of-chicken soup
--1/2 cup chicken broth
--frozen chicken pieces
--packet of Italian salad dressing mix
--2 cloves minced garlic
--block of cream cheese 

Put everything except for the cream cheese into the crockpot. Cook on low for 6 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and begins to shred. Shred the chicken with two large forks, and mix in the block of cream cheese. Switch the crock to high and cook for another 30 minutes, or until the cream cheese is fully melted.
Serve over rice or pasta.

Go on over to Little Miss Momma CrockPot Party and check out all the other great crockpot recipes!  Button is at the top of my blog.

Athlete and I made these carmel apple cupcakes in a jar for his school project.  We had a lot of fun and the teachers LOVED them.

Princess' Quilt

I finally finished the quilt!  I started making this quilt for my daughter.  I really wanted to do something special for her.  When I saw this pattern, I had to make it.  It was my first try at applique. Each heart has a different stitch.  I'm so proud of myself.  I gave it to her and she loved it! 

I entered this quilt in the Celebrate Color Contest.  Click the button on the right to see the other beautiful entries! ( I couldn't figure out how to get the button in this post.)  Good Luck Everyone!

Dinosaur Superhero

Here's my Monster flying around in his cape. He loves this thing. He's a Dinosaur Superhero ya know! I hope the kids a Children's love their capes as much as he does!

T Shirt Quilt

My girlfriend had asked me to make a t-shirt quilt for her daughter. She had been playing soccer ever since she was little and she was graduating. I told her I had never taken on a project that big, but that I would give it a try. It turned out beautifully. Her daughter loved it!

My First Quilt

Last September we found out that my Dad had lung cancer. I decided that I wanted to make a quilt for him so that I could be there with him, even when I wasn't. I didn't know a thing about quilting, but my local quilt shop was there for me. Hayden helped me with it. My Dad loved the quilt! He passed away in February of this year.

Monster's New Scooter

Well, this scooter was supposed to be for Easter. Monster found the scooter in the back of the van, of course. What could I do at that point but to give it to him? He had so much fun riding it with his new scary helmet on. He's way too cute!

The Boys

Athlete and Monster had to go outside. They had cabin fever and I couldn't hold them in anymore. Thank God it was a nice day out, even though there was still snow on the ground.


Here's some shots of Athlete and his friends this year at the Bomber's Spring Hockey season. They had so much fun. It's amazing that this time last year he didn't even know how to skate.

Christmas Tree Farm 2010

We went on our traditional family tree cutting this year. My husband decides to go on the wrong side of the tree farm. We never go on that side! He is breaking the tradition! The boys still had a great time running around and looking for the perfect tree.
