Baking and scrapping and hanging with the kids.

Okay. If I suddenly don't post for days at a time, it's because I've forgotten that I have a blog. Seriously. I am having so much fun over at the SIS message boards that pretty much the rest of my life goes on hold for a few hours at a time. Like right now. My girls are in the tub and I'm letting them splash all over...just so I can blog. They are happy. I am happy. So there's really no problem here. Yet.
Truthfully, if you haven't stopped by and registered and you want a fun, laid-back place to hang out and chat...especially about scrapping and inspiration and life...then this is the place to be.
That picture was taken by Chip on Mother's Day. We almost all looked at the camera and smiled. Getting closer. Just had to share that for my mom and Chip's mom.
Those Lemon Bars and Rachael Ray Raspberry Tart I made last week? I forgot to post their pics and recipes here. If you want me to, I'll get around to the recipes. If not, I'll go chat on the boards during the time I would spend typing out the directions for you here. Good stuff though. Especially love these desserts for summer entertaining- picnics, potlucks and family reunions...these are the stuff people love at events like that. =)
What else can I say? Tomorrow is the last day of preschool for Bella and Wyndham. They will have a little program and then there is time for punch and Krispy treats. Which I just remembered I have to make yet. Before 10 am tomorrow. =) I knew there was a reason I was posting on my remind myself to make Krsipy Treats. Yum.
So, that's what's happening here in the Nitty.Gritty. real world. Happy, scrappy, and always something to scrub or clean. Or bake. =)
Hope you're having a good Thursday!

Thank you for your wonderful words of wisdom in "cheering" me up !! I love praise music and sometimes I forget it's there.. ( and I own a TON of it)...

I love Lemon Squares... so if you have any left over.. send them my way.. YUM YUM.. Ü
I tried registering on the SIS but never got a confirmation e-mail... :( So I think I'll try again tomorrow!!

If no one has told you lately.. I appreciate you and your blog!! Thank you for always taking the time to "talk" with us... Ü

Lemon Bars are on of my favorites and those raspberry tarts look really delicious too. Would love to have those recipes if you get a few minutes to type them out, or point us to a link if they can be found online and it's faster for you. I've been lurking for over a year now (found you during the tragedy of Taylor U. last spring, I'm an alum) and really enjoy reading your stuff. Thanks for continuing through all the "rough times" people seem to give you on occasion. Blessings on your day!
