Okay, so it's not really TGIF but Thursday marks the end of my meditech work week so hey, I'm rejoicing! 3 days in a row is hard with small kids! The project is going really well and I'm enjoying the work now that I'm getting in the groove. I just miss the kids :( But I'm off the next 4 days so YEAH! And tomorrow is supposed to be nice out so we're going to hit the playset and play, play, play! The housework can wait.

Mary is a total nut these days, she's figured out how to get in the dog water, pulls the plug out of the bathtub (repeatedly), is crawling, cruising and generally CRAZY. Robert is getting more and more independent and "I want to do it my way"-ish. Sigh. They are growing up TOO fast.

Today for supper we had leftover taco salad.

1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 large can of baked beans
1/4 c catsup
1/5 c BBQ sauce
2 T mustard

cook them all together until thick and bubbly (10ish min). Serve in bowls (layer in the order written)

doritos (crushed)
taco meat
cheese (shredded)
ranch salad dressing.


For my desert I rehabilitated a VERY dry and stale cupcake (from last friday that I never put away!) by crumbling it, adding some milk, microwing it for 30 sec then I added some chocolate chips and a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping and microwaved it another 30 sec, stirred it well and topped it with whipped cream. It was to die for. Can you tell I'm PMS-ing? Mary liked it to but she is my chocoholic. Robert is my ice cream and pie boy. For Mary it's all about the chocolate!

From that desert recipe, I'd say you are a GOOD lil missionary girl, able to make something out of NOTHING! Wowee!
