Slipping and Sliding through Wednesday.......With Grace Of Course:)

Woo Hoo I made it to Wednesday!!!!! You ever had a week like that, one that drags on and on and on??? Well let me tell you that this week has been the slowest week EVER!!!! I am not even sure why it feels so long, all I know is it has me hunched over in a fetal position wishing to catch a glimpse of the weekend. Maybe it's because over the course of two weeks we have gotten enough rain to fill Lake we are just patiently wait here to see if the Levee will or will not break. So my life right now could easily be compared to a Game of Jenga...will it fall or not fall, the suspense is almost unbearable ( hopefully the Levee will hold otherwise I may be swimming to the Piggly Wiggly).

So in the meantime we are making light of our situation the best way we know slipping and sliding. Hey who put that naked baby in that picture....look at those sweet cheeks:) I Love this picture in so many tells so much about my family. John who is never hesitant to get in on the fun, Keegan ready to follow his daddy, Miles devising up a plan to make the most out of this situation, and my Baby, naked as the day he came out and just happy to be in on the fun.

Can I get a Hip Hip Hooray! I made PW's Pineapple Upside Down Cake and it beyond incredible ( I will share this recipe with you later this week).

Also to top off this week, I discovered a Goodwill Bookstore!!!!!! That's right a Goodwill dedicated to just books, I have died and gone to Heaven. So while we browsed the store, Keegan found this little treasure. A book on how to make Paper Airplanes and it included 40 sheets of paper, guess how much it cost me? TWO dollars...that's it!

This was the best Two dollars can't buy a smile like that.

Then of course Daddy had to show off his Airplane flying skills, you would have thought these two boys were at Disney. All I keep hearing was "That's Awesome", "Wow, look at that one", "Giggle, Giggle, Giggle".

So Happy:)

Then once the nostalgia of flying Paper Airplanes wore off, they broke out the baseball. (By the way the other boys were napping, if you wondering what happened to them)

I love how they tease each other....I am pretty sure that Keegan is telling John " YOU PLAY BALL LIKE A GIRL", can you name that MOVIE?

Something Magical happens when you watch your husband and son play ball's if the world slows down for just a moment to let each one grab a hold of that moment and suck the marrow out of it. It's moments like this that fill me with such JOY  and get me all teary eyed....I love my boys!

We did some grilling (or Smoking, however you want to look at it)....RIBS....YUM!!!!

While my husband is the master of the grill, I dominate the kitchen. Here is a look at some Savory Classic Mac and Cheese (I will share this recipe along with the Pineapple Upside Down Cake later).

Here is a book that I just finished...thought I would throw that in there! It was a pretty good book, filled with twist and turns.

If you are wondering why I took a picture of this book using my Zoom are mistaken. For some reason I grabbed the LARGE print edition...have you ever seen a book in LARGE print...the words are huge! I must admit, that even while I felt like a 80 year old reading this book, it was easy on the eyes. So who knows I may start purchising all my books in LARGE print.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my husband! He gave me my Mother's Day gift early and I am absolutely Swooning over this Apron. He hit a Home Run this year....way to Go!

To put the Icing on the Cake....this lovely Apron came with her two Sisters, Oven Mitt and Pot Holder:)

So this morning while the Mississippi Rises....we pass the time with some Sidewalk Chalk!

Sidewalk Chalk is a Wonderful thing for Mommies that have trouble getting themselves going in the Morning..... while they go to town, I sit and enjoy my cup of coffee one sip at time. BLISS!

HELLO, my little lovies....thanks for making Mornings easier on Me

So here's a toast to Wednesday.....we are half way there!
