Everybody Has to Eat, Right?!

I created this weekly Menu for my grocery planning.  I plan about 2 weeks or more at a time.  It depends on how many days are in the pay period. I use the shopping list to only add the items we will need to make each meal and add snacks like apples, bananas and other things.  I use notes to remind me to check on the quantity of items I have on hand.  I also use the note section for any other things I want to remind myself of when shopping or preparing the meal.  Like make double to take to Missionary Family.  I have laminated mine and use it like a dry erase board.  If you have a family planner you could punch holes in it and keep it in your planner.  We have added magnetic tape on the back and hang it on the refrigerator.  I hope this simple Menu is able to help you and your family!

1 Box Instant Milk
3 Lg Boxes Chocolate Pudding

Mix together and store in air tight containers.  To serve add 2 Tablespoons in cup of hot water and stir.  Add Marshmallows as desired.

Meet Max

Molly all tuckered out from her day of play.

Max looking at Molly getting his second wind.
This week we might have added a new member to our family, Max.  Max is a Cocker Spaniel.  We are fostering him for a local rescue group and have fallen in love.  Molly, our King Charles Caviler, is having a ball playing and making a new friend.  We might have to keep him.  Now, if I can convince my hubby we will have it made!

October Fun in the Sun

I thought that it was about time I got some decent pictures of the kids so we can send out with our Christmas cards.  Here in KC we have been having some erratic weather so before a cold front came I took the kids and took some pictures.  They were not so pleased when I realized that after 1.5 hours the setting had been changed when my husband had last borrowed my camera.  So.... we went out again.  This time I had corrected the settings.  Here are some of the ones that we took.  I still have to Photoshop them and I like to add some filters and shading but thought that all in all they turned out ok for just being unedited.  Now, I will start a scrapbook that I have wanted to for quite some time. 

 The above is my oldest.  My beautiful daughter.  She was not happy but tried really hard. 

 This is my oldest son.  I have always thought that he was photogenic.  He does not get it from me!

This is my baby!  Let's just say the Tooth Fairy has been very busy at our house as he now has all 4 of his front teeth gone.  I love his little freckles.

I hope you are able to enjoy some great fall weather!
