Be Still

This song has really touched my heart and hope you don't mind that I'm sharing it with you.
I have been listening (and crying) to it all day and hope that it may help and comfort someone like it has for me.
Have a happy day :)

Recipes tried and tested! Yum Yum!

Anyone that knows me knows I really don't care for cooking.  Maybe it's because my kids are young and ubber picky and it annoys me to take all this time cooking just to have them say, "Ewww what's this?  I think I don't like this?"  Ummmm yeah, you've never even tried it thanks :)  So within the last two weeks I have whipped up some mighty good eats if I do say so myself.....and they are kid approved!

Baked Crab (but I used chicken instead) Rangoon

These were Oh so yummy!  I did adjust the recipe and replaced the crab with shredded chicken....they were a big hit!

Garlic Chicken

My kids love the sweetness of this chicken.  Super simple!

Man Pleasing Chicken

My hubby did love this....I found it a bit too mustardy so next time I will lessen the amount a bit....otherwise very good.

Asian Noodle Salad

My new favorite salad!  And Asian flavors aren't my favorite, but I can soooo do this!  It doesn't serve well as leftovers.  I found that everything was super soggy the next day so chow this one down the same day you make it!

Naughty Donuts

You will not believe how incredibly easy these are.  We ended up making the cinnamon and sugar and chocolate donuts.  For the chocolate I just melted a tub of chocolate frosting in the microwave and dipped in one side of the donut....yumm yumm!

Cinnamon French Toast Bake

This was MY FAVORITE!  Oh my sweet utter yumness!  I have made this three times in the past two weeks...that's how much we love it!

Happy cooking!

Superhero Birthday Party!

Superhero masks using this template.

All items for goodie bags found at Dollar Tree and Target Dollar Spot!

Goodie bags found at Walmart in the party supply section.

The boys absolutely LOVED this game of diffusing the Kryptonite.  I took some aluminum foil and wadded it up into a ball.  Then I sponged on green paint and while that was still wet I sprinkled silver glitter on top of that!

Next up was the Superhero Training Obstacle Course.  The had to jump from a chair to an ottoman, then onto the couch and do a somersault.  From there they entered Spider-man's Web and had to crawl through to the wall cutouts and climb through one then back out through the webs and finally break down the wall of boxes.

Only then did they receive their Superhero Academy Training Certificates.  They each came up with a Superhero name and a power.

Afterwards we played pin Spider-Man on his web.  I just made the web using white yarn.

With a little bit of time left over we opened gifts and then got out all the Superhero toys that my son has accumulated and they played and played and played.

It was a very successful party to say the least!  Now one more party to go and we are good until December!!!
