Accomplishments

The truth of the matter is, I have nothing terribly interesting to write about today. We didn't go anywhere or do anything super special over the weekend.

I tried to talk Luke into going to a craft fair with me, but apparently men aren't as into that sort of thing as women are. Shocking, I know.

So we just hung out, watched the new Pixar movie "Up", which I thought was really cute but Luke didn't think was all that great. Hey, don't shoot the messenger now! I'm just stating his opinion.

We cleaned our unfinished basement, talked about what we would do with the basement once we had money growing on trees. We read books, and I baked... a lot!

The banana bread was gone the same day, the two loaves of zucchini bread lasted two days and were eaten on the floor, cause its cool to do that.

I made rolls from my mother-in-law's recipe (the kind that have to rise all day). Whenever I make those, it seems to put Luke in such a great mood. There is something about freshly baked bread, and especially these rolls that just make him happy.

And I made crackers, again. My friend Emily sent me a link to a cheese cracker recipe (click here to see it) and my kids ate it up in 10 minutes! They are SO super easy its ridiculous and they really are very, very good! The original recipe calls for wheat flour but I'm fresh out so I used white.


After the kids were in bed last night, Luke and I stayed up late, staring at the newly hung pictures of the kids, talking about boring married stuff. (sorry, you are not privey to such a conversation)

I also finished the Primary Posters for LDV for this year. Okay, so I didn't actually finish them this weekend, but it was recently. One of these years I'll actually finish all 12 BEFORE the New Year.



I have been itching to do some pencil drawings so the other day I found all my drawing pencils and brought them upstairs. I haven't actually started anything yet, but I want to. I'm just trying to think of something I really want to do.

I've also been eyeing all my bookbinding things. Who knows? Maybe I'll actually find it in me to pull a couple of late nighters to work on some projects and have fun things to show off.

All in all, it was a pretty good weekend.


How was yours?

My weekend certainly wasn't as awesome as yours. Way to go you with all of those accomplishments and happy times. Sometimes a great weekend is made up of the "little" things. I wish I had more time for one of those.

I can't wait to try those cheese crackers, as I love crackers and am a cheese addict! Wish I could have tried all of your baking successes. They sound so good! Was that an oven rack on the floor with the kids?

P.S. What?! No Alayna picture?!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

LOL, yes, that is an oven rack. I had to take one out to cook the zucchini bread. The kids thought it made the perfect "table".
Sorry there aren't any pictures of Alayna. I'll be sure to post some soon!!

Courtney said...

you amaze me with all of your baking. I don't have the energy to do it, and I only have Rosalie. You definitely are a super mom.

Valerie said...

Wow! You are a woman of many talents! Baking, drawing, wonderful mom. Sorry you didn't make it to the craft fair. Sounds like it would have been fun. :)

Heidi said...

I guess that settles it--if my kids are like yours, then I'm not investing in a dining table if cookie sheets and oven racks suffice.

Mama Smith said...

It has been a JOY to watch you develop into such a talented gifted young woman...I will never understand...how a person like me...was blessed with such a beautiful child...LOVE YOU...Thank you...for continually giving me that "joy and rejoicing" in my posterity.

Someone didn't like Up?! :) Glad you enjoyed it. Nice pictures, I love the expressions on the childrens' faces.
