Ready for church!

This is my cute Ty today! We put perm rods in her hair and it was adorable. I used to do it to Josie's hair all the time when I only had one kid to get ready for church. Somehow I just haven't thought of it recently. Anyway it was cute because it made her look like she had more hair.

New beds for the kids!

This last weekend we did a big project. We took down the crib and put up the bunkbeds. The girls are in the bunkbeds (that we just painted black)! Now I just need to get some cute bedding, but that will have to wait for a little while.

So because Kody got kicked out of the twin bed, we got a full size bed for him, incase we ever have company come visit. It is nice. He will also need a cute comforter, but for now he just gets one of our wedding quilts.

Kindergarten family project!

Kody brought home this blank outline of a pumpkin and we were asked to work on it as a family. Well, I have a lot of crafty friends and on their blogs they had been making rice shakers with their kids. I thought that sounded fun, so we just took some empty bottles and colored the rice in the shakers! Then I got another brilliant idea. Hey, we could use that to color Kody's pumpkin! We just glued all the rice on. It turned out really cute and the kids loved making it.

Here are some yummy breadsticks a made a while ago. Aren't they pretty? The pan on the right is the before and the pan on the left is after they were cooked. I did half of the pan with cinnamon sugar and the other half with a spice called salad supreme! They were delicious.

If your interested, here's the recipe! 1 1/2 c. hot water, 2 T. sugar, 1T. yeast, 3 c. flour, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Dissolve water and sugar in a big bowl. Add yeast to water and sugar. Add flour and salt. Knead for 3 min, adding more glour as needed to make dough soft and workable. Cover with dish towel and let rest 10 min. Melt 1/2 cube margarine on large cookie sheet.

Place dough on a floured board and roll into rectangle just smaller than your pan. Cut into 1" strips with pizza cutter or knife. Place each strip, one at a time on sheet and turn to cover both sides with butter. Let rest 10 min. Sprinkle with your favorite toppings!
