I love these cookies and miss the maker

These are the best cookies! My dearest Becky Mecham would make them and they were oh so yummy. They are never the same at my house!

I have to hunt down the recipe every time I want to make them, so I thought I would put it in a place that I can find it easily and share with those that want it. Best sugar cookies ever!

Love and miss these guys!

Bummer summer days!

The children are out of school!! This has been a catch 22 for me in my household! This is the second summer that I have been a working mom. I find myself stretched all over the place! My boss has ever so gratefully given me the opportunity to change my schedule to accommodate swimming lessons and activities in the morning and I work ever afternoon. I am so grateful for this. My little people would probably become cannibals if they were left at home all day every day. The carnage would be bad, really bad. 

So I run around all morning like a crazy person on a mission and then rush over to work and then rush home to make sure that dinner is done in a timely fashion. 

Many days lately I wish for the ease of my past. As crazy as it was to have so many little ones at once I miss those days. Spending time with fun friends and making plans to have fun, rememberable times.

Head in the clouds.

This is the view from the window of my 10th story office in downtown Phoenix. It has been cloudy and cold all day. The clouds look like they are squishing down on the valley. Sam called and asked me if I had my head in the clouds. My answer was almost.

As I laid in bed this morning thinking that Elizabeth was taking an extra long shower, I came to the realization that it was raining.

I don't watch the news so I had no idea that it was going to be wet today. What a delightful surprise.

Not her face!!

Erika had a fall at school on the 27th of October. She was racing to the bus with one of our bus buddies. Because she was pulling on him with her little hands they were not there to save her face from the sidewalk when she fell.

My little angel really did a duzy!! After consulting with Cynthia, the face restoration queen, I think we will be able to eleminate or at least minimize the scaring.

I sure love this little bug, but when it comes to competative behavior she is so aggrasive. Some day she will use this behavior to save the world. I know the Lord has a purpose in her. I am grateful for that she is part of my family!

Grandpa's visit

Grandpa is here to visit from Oklahoma. He went to his 60th anniversary!! 60 years out of high school. I sure hope that I can be in a position to enjoy my life in another 48 years.

It's never to late??

It's never to late to start blogging again, is it???

Now that I have a little more time and my mind is completely damaged and I can remember nothing that has happened over the past 2 years I will see what I can do to change my blogging habits.

We'll see;)

Spring break with Grandpa!

My Dad was able to come and visit us from Oklahoma. He was here for 9 days, but he was a busy man. We were able to have several days full of fun with him. We went to the Tucson Zoo and Eegies on Monday. Then to the park and the library on Tuesday. Then to good old Chucky Cheese on Wednesday.
Back to the same old grind stone in the morning.
