Ya forget what it is like waiting on a bunch of girls to get ready to go into public!
This past weekend we let Taylor have two of her best girlfriends come stay the night on Friday. Will took them to the basketball game...they sat right behind the boys bench and even better Kellen Moore sat right behind them!!! Will and Kellen talked throughout the game and the girls just whispered amongst each other and giggled (silly girls)! Then, on Saturday we took the girls to the new released movie Hotel For Dogs. They got to sit a few rows in front of us (so they thought they were REALLY COOL)!
Sittin' away from the adults!
Before going to the theater we went past the Dollar Store to get candy. I learned this trick from Lolli, I wasn't smart enough to think of it on my own. They each got to pick out two boxes of candy. Once we got to the theater my extra large purse couldn't hold ALL the candy we bought so we just took in one box per person and they each took home a box.
It was a GREAT movie and we all had a great time. Nothing like having an August birthday in January! Happy Birthday Miss Tay!
Ryan is next...he will also get to take two friends with him to a new movie. He is still trying to decide which new movie coming out he wants to choose.
Tuna Noodle Casserole
1/2 onion chopped
5 pieces of Celery chopped
2 cans of Tuna
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
First, I started by sauteing the onion, celery and a garlic together. Next, I start cooking the noodles (follow the directions on package). While that is sauteing and noodles are cooking, in a bowl I mix the drained Tuna, mushroom soup and about a half can of Chicken Broth together(You want the mixture to be a bit runny). I salt and pepper both the sauteing items and the mixture in the bowl.
Turn the oven to 350 and then spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray. Once the sauteing items are to your liking (I usually like to get the onions brown and the celery less crunchy) I then add it to the mixture.
When the noodles are finished I drain the water pouring them into the 9x13 pan and then add the mixture stirring it all together. Finally, I add grated cheese to the top, crumble crackers over cheese and place into the oven for 20-30 minutes just to heat up the entire casserole.
***At times I have also added sour cream and Worcestershire Sauce to mixture.

A bit abstract but I was very proud of him for sitting long enough to finish a project! I am glad to see that my Grandma and Mother's artistic abilities have FINALLY arrived in someone...took long enough!

This a picture Ryan drew a few months back. It is a drawing of one of his favorite characters from Star Wars...R2 D2! He even tried to write R2 D2 in the top right corner. After he finished drawing it he wanted it hung on the outside of his bedroom door. He was sooo proud of it.
His drawing and coloring skills have improved tons since this pic was taken...we are still working on the writing part! "[

So, here are the rules for the Picture Tag:
1) Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer
2) Select the 4th picture in the folder
3) Explain the picture
4) Tag 4 people to do the same
So, here it is...I started to laugh so hard when I opened the folder and counted over 4 pics. This is Ryan at Halloween last year. They were praying at preschool before snack time and apparently being Yoda and "using the force" can tire little ones out!
Thanks Melissa for the trip down memory lane!
From me to these wonderful bloggers:
- Dee at Two of A Kind, Working on a Full House
- Ali at Home of the Lazy Dog
- Lynn at The Blair Family
- Lolli at The Essary Family
Enjoy ladies and all the rest of us will be waiting to see what you find behind folder #4!!!
***After having to look closer at my picture folders I did notice how HORRIBLY messy and out of order mine are. So, I guess I have some organizing to do. ***

Whenever we go to Olympia someone always bring up that we MUST get Bologna Sandwiches before our trip there is over. Papa takes anyone who wants to go and will bring back anything for those of us who want the goods but not the fieldtrip! Taylor has a really good friend named Katie who lives two doors down from Nana and Papa and even she has since learned that when Papa Mack mentions Bologna Sandwiches not to frown but to grab your coat and RUN for the car!

It will look like this to begin with but will thicken up as the potatoes cook.
After adding the half and half and letting it cook about 1/2 hour longer you will end up with nummy tasting Clam Chowder!

Ryan has hardly taken off his football pads.
Mr. Bruns...I had better find your number really soon! It is bad enough having to buy Husky stuff...but Jake Locker?? Come on...that is a TOTAL slap in yours AND Kellen's face!
