While I Was Away...

Life is returning to normal around here...I've found it difficult to blog consistently as we've had company on and off for the past month. Alas, it is just the four of us once again, and I have a backlog of topics in my brain to share with you all. First, however, shall we do some catching up?

Camden had his final soccer game last week. "Orange Crush" went undefeated for the season! Here he is, doing his team cheer at the end of the game.

Camden was very excited about his soccer medal, which I believe he wore for a good 24 hours straight.
The "end of soccer season" was all the excuse I needed to make some soccer ball cupcakes, and have a little soccer party.

Griffin is now wearing this 30-something year-old Mickey Mouse sweatshirt. Yes, it was once mine, and yes, Camden use to wear it, too.

Camden was eating a graham cracker one day, when he informed me that he'd eaten it into the shape of Idaho, and in fact, he had. Sometimes I don't know what this little guy will come up with next!Will you please look at the blue eyes on this boy? And while you're at it, will you please not look at my crow's feet?
The past couple of days have been full of spring cleaning. I mean the kind not meant for sissies, people. Closet cleaning, mattress flipping, cobweb removal, etc. Today I've been cleaning the patio because it is currently 78 degrees outside. 78 degrees! I'm giddy at the thought of digging in the dirt, soaking up the sun, and just being OUTSIDE.
Stay tuned this week for some yard sale treasures, some Favorite Things, and other random thoughts.

I'm glad you'll be back to blogging more often - I think I speak for all of us faithful readers when I say that we've missed you!
Camden looks mighty proud with that shiny medal around his neck! Sounds like he had a stellar first season!
I love the picture of you and Griffin! Those EYES! So sweet, so innocent, so BLUE! He's a cutie!

Ok you need to stop pulling up all the desserts! I have made the Apple Crisp Pie and Chocolate Cheese cake and both were a success, and delicious! I have also hit the recipe file for Chicken casseroles and found a lot of good recipes there....
Aunt Jean has the best pie crust recipe that I use, with oil, water and flour, really good....
