Cliff jumping with cousins Brad and Ashley

Well we went to spend a few days up in the condo in Midway, Utah and it was fabulous. We basically went boating on Deer Creek Reservoir for 4 days straight. The first day with just our family, the second day with a some friends and their kids, the third day with Matt's sister and her kids then the last day with Matt's brother and kids. I am very very tan and lovin it. We will be taking advantage of going to the condo whenever it's not rented out.

Internet Issues

Oh, don't get me started. We have been without the internet for a week and a half and I just spent over an hour on the phone. Just switching off one phone line to another has put it all in the crapper. And they couldn't even get my laptop connected(would help if the girl could speak english and I could understand what she was saying.) We just got back from a fun vacation but I will have to post all the fun pics later after I decompress.

Getting Crafty

Well I'm sort of in the grove of making some digiscrapping stuff. I made some digi cards with Meredith's new kit but have to take pics so can't post them yet. But I found a freebie Quick Page from LLiella Designs and decided to pop some pics in and call it good.

Gotta Have Chocolate

I made these Big Chocolate Bar covers with the gorgeous new kit "Pocket Full of Sunshine" from Krystal Hartley and it will be at
The DigiChick tomorrow. So go grab it.
Wouldn't you love to get a ton of chocolate instead of a thank you card? I would. So I did!

A week of Home Made cooking

I made this layout with The Alpha Files 3 kit from Krystal Hartley at SSD. Darling felt alphabet. It's on sale today so go grab it. I also used a bunch of her other kits for the paper and elements. She's a fab designer so go check out her stuff. I had a fun week with Sydney while the boys were gone to the boys kid club for a couple of hours each day. We now have lots of sweets in our house to eat. I certainly don't need that.

Crock Pot Lasagna

Well I discoved this fab recipe for Lasagna (you've got to know I HATE making dinner so anything that's fast AND good is a definate plus for me.) I got it from church and whoever made it up is a genius. Here goes.

1 lb. Hamburger
26(approx)oz. spaghetti sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
1 package oven ready lasagna noodles (do not cook before putting in crock pot)
1 1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
2 TBLs. parsley
1 bag mozzorella cheese (use as little or much to your own liking)

Brown hamburger, drain. Add spaghetti sauce and tomatoes (I used a quart of my own bottled tomatoes and just pulsed in the blender for a minute to chop up a bit) In a separate bowl mix the cottage, ricotta cheese and parsley. Spray the bottom and sides of the crock pot with cooking spray. Put a small amount of meat sauce on bottom of crock pot. Then layer 3 times in this order: Oven ready lasagna noodles(break to fit), hamburger mixture, cottage cheese mixture, and grated mozzarella cheese. Cook on low 4-6 hours or until noodles are tender (mine took 5 hours)

This made enough for two meals for my family of 5. Every one of my kids liked it a lot and I will definately be making this again. Yum Yum!

The 4th and a Boat trip

Well we had fun on the 4th going to the Magna parade and then a BBQ at my sisters house with all the family and then treated to fireworks once it got dark.
Then yesterday we took the boat out on Utah lake for an afternoon to cool off in the 96 degree weather. Fun was had by all. Sorry did the photos backward.

A Cool way to cool off!

Well I used the new kit "Freedom Festival" from Krystal Hartley who is a guest designer at The Digichick for July. I made these fans for my kids and their cousins for the big 4th of July Magna parade. Some of them can't come to the parade but I new they will be at the BBQ later and might feel slighted if they didn't get one so I just made them for all the kids (except Amy's kids who won't be around at all-we'll miss ya) It might rain but I say "Bring on the Heat"
