The Dog

Harley the dog likes her naps. Lately she has been napping with my nephew Ben in the afternoons. And she will snuggle with anybody who is willing. Here she's snuggling up to Hannah. Now I'm sleepy :)

Until next time ~ Stacy

Fun Weekend

Our niece, Shae, came up from college Friday night after a test. The kids had no idea she was coming in for the weekend. I {heart} surprises.

The kids had a cross country meet Saturday morning. Glad she was here to see them run.

The kids ran great. Every Madill team placed 1st!

Brent had to stay and do results so the girls and I headed to a family reunion on my mom-in-law's side. It was a quick trip there and back because wanted to get back for the OU game (boomer sooner).

Shae goes to UTA which is just 2 hours away so we decided to go down to Fort Worth to eat and let her follow us back down. I've been wanting to go eat Mexican food so it gave us a good excuse .

I did take more pictures during our weekend but it was with other cameras :)

We love having her so close and we will be visiting again next weekend because we are going to a huge flea market in Canton, Texas so she and her roommate are going to meet us there. And then about 2 weeks after that the kids are running at Hurst, Texas so we she will get to see them run again and we are going to go see her apartment and walk around her campus. Note to self, take more pictures with my camera.

Until next time ~ Stacy

Do you believe in ghost?

My sister was sent this picture that was taken in the ER at Integris Hospital in Grove, OK. Can you see anything spooky? It gave me chills when I first saw the picture. It looks like a nurse that has an old long hat on and it look like it has wings. It could have been photoshopped but either way, still pretty chilling. Makes me ready for Halloween.

Until next time ~ Stacy

Cookie Bouquet

Not sure how the idea of cookie bouquets came up between me and my sister but it did. I made some to sell at the Relay For Life dance my sister put on tonight. They turned out really cute. This was the first time doing them so some cookies turned out better than others. The trick is not to roll out the dough to thin and to keep the dough cold, it makes it easier to handle. I used a new recipe for both the sugar cookies and icing. When I make cut out sugar cookies I usually use my Mom's recipe. I think the new one was easier to roll out, it wasn't as sticky (sorry Mom). The icing was butter and shortening with powder sugar. The jury is still out on the icing. Next time I do it I'll probably use my standard buttercream icing.

My sister thinks I need to start selling the bouquets. I would like to but not sure they will pay the price I would want. It took me some time to make those suckers :)

Until next time ~ Stacy

Oh yeah, she won!

She won! We are living with the 6th grade representative student council member. They already had 2 meetings and a 3rd meeting scheduled for Monday. Next week is homecoming week so they get to decorate a float. She's excited!

Until next time ~ Stacy
