Sept. 3, 2008

I haven't posted much since I went to Aldi's. I finally got everything put away. That was a chore in itself. I have the cabinets packed out. They could open up and start shooting out at any given moment. HA! I went over the inventory the other night and realized boy do we have a lot of stuff! I went through our freezer and got a count on how much we have in there too. I shouldn't have to do much shopping for a while. I will just have to pick up things here and there as we need them.

Today would have been my Uncle David's birthday. He died before any of my children were born and actually before I got married. I know that my husband and my uncle would have really liked each other. My boys would have loved teasing and picking at him just like he would have loved to pick on them. I remember one time he snuck in behind our house and we were watching a scary movie. He started making noise behind our house where the woods were and scared us so bad!! He laughed and laughed about that! He was also the first person to take me to a movie. Uncle David loved racing. He took us to see 'Days of Thunder'. It was him, his daughter, my sister and myself. I really enjoyed it. I think he did too. So today is a tribute to my funny and big hearted Uncle David. I will always remember him laughing and joking with everyone. I will miss him until I see him again some day in Heaven.

I ran across a recipe that I really like today. I'll post it so that you can use it if you get the notion. The kids love these cookies and they make a ton of them. The kids like to help making them too. The only problem is that it could get real messy if you're not careful. Powdered sugar and kids don't mix too well.

I'm not sure if I mentioned about the incident/accident that we had last Tuesday evening. Our neighbor's car rolled down the hill and ran over our fence! Boy was that a shock!! I was thankful that the kids weren't out in the yard. No one got hurt and I'm thankful of that. The fence will eventually get repaired by the neighbors insurance when they get the ball rolling. Hope it doesn't take too long.

We are having breakfast for dinner tonight. The kids enjoy having this every now and then. We'll have some omlets, biscuts, sausage and bacon to go with or in the omlets. Hope the night is a cool one. Here is the cookie recipe that I mentioned. Hope you'll try them and let me know how you liked them.

Cake Cookies

1 box cake mix (any flavor)
1 egg
1 (8 ounce) coolwhip tub (use the whole tub).

Mix all together, then by spoonfull roll in powdered sugar. Then put on cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes

Sorry to hear about your fence. Hope it gets fixed soon. When I saw in your other post that you were 'crazy busy' I thought-that sounds like something I would say. : D Hope you're having a great day!
