Wedding-The Bridesmaid’s Dresses

 We have got the bridesmaids dresses!!!

They are champagne with black lace on the top with a high-waisted black built-in belt. 

 The rest of the dress is black down to the knee.

 It has two rosettes at the neckline.

And it buttons in the back.

We found these at JC Penney for a nice price.

A very pretty dress for very pretty ladies!

My Recipe For Spaghetti

“Noodles are not only amazing, but delicious.” -Jula Child

 Everyone has a favorite spaghetti sauce that they make, so I thought that I would share mine.

Here are the ingredients I use. 

Get the pasta boiling and the sauce warming….. 

Next thing you know, you are eating Italian style!! 

Lots and lots of  shaved parmesan cheese, please.

Here is the recipe:

1 lb ground beef, turkey, or pork

1/2 large onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 large can crushed tomatoes

Spices:  salt, pepper, oregano, basil, crushed red pepper flakes, garlic powder

Spaghetti Noodles, Tagliatelle Pasta Nests, Or any pasta you have lying around

Parmesan Cheese     

 Directions to make it:

Brown your meat in skillet.  Add your onions.  Cook until onions are tender.  Add garlic.  Pour in crushed tomatoes.  Add the spices to your taste.  I usually add about 1 tablespoon of basil and oregano. Garlic powder only if you think you need more garlic.  Just a pinch of the red pepper flakes.  And salt and pepper to taste.

That’s the sauce!!

For the pasta:

Just add pasta to salted, olive oiled, boiling water.  Taste the pasta to test when it is done.

After both the pasta and the sauce are done, I add a little of the pasta water to the sauce.  Drain the pasta.  Add parmesan cheese to the pasta.  Then add them together.  Top with more parmesan cheese.

One thing for sure is that my cute little granddaughters will be dress to the nines!!

I bought these headpieces at JC Penney.

They are really big.

Sooooooooooo cute!

Kennedy has already tried hers on and she couldn’t stop looking and smiling at herself in the mirror.

So I’m thinking that it’s a go!!

My Garden


dreamed of having a little garden surrounded by a picket fence, so I could grow gladiolus and roses in front of it, put some cleome in the corners to peek over the top, plant a little salad garden inside and surround it all with nepeta (cat mint), johnny jump-ups, lemon thyme, basil and tomatoes. So I drew it out on paper (I didn’t want it to be too big) and read garden books and looked at garden magazines to decide what I would plant.

nd then one day…

ust thought you might want to start a dream of your own…it’s the right time to do it! I love kitchen gardens near the door, where flowers and vegetables are all mixed together…a rose tree, or a lemon tree in the middle is nice; so is a bird bath! Plan for a little bench out there; plant organic salad greens and herbs, foxgloves, or a garden with all white flowers, it’s all yours to dream. Birds and bees will love you.

Susan is soooo inspiring!!!

I made my own little garden.

Last summer Big Ran built this garden for me to play in. 


It’s not near as beautiful as Susan’s, but I figure I have the rest of my life to perfect it! 

Obviously, Shafer loves the garden. 

 This is the front gate.


I found this windmill at a garage sale last summer.

It is perfect for this garden. 


 There are strawberries growing already this year.


 Last summer I planted watermelon, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, lots of herbs, flowers, sunflowers, and more. 

This year I’m going to try some different plants.

Today I’m going to plant radishes and lettuce.

Gracyn Playing Basketball

This is a post from my daughter’s blog,


A few weeks ago Gracyn noticed a little girl outside dribbling a basketball.  She watched this little girl dribble for about twenty minutes and Gracyn rarely does anything for longer than ten minutes.  So I knew what I had to do:  I bought Gracyn a basketball goal and ball at babies r us.  She loves it!  She is quickly becoming a basketball star (well in our home anyway;-).  I’m going to have to start sending her back home to Missouri every summer so she can get some coaching from Grandpa Mike, Coach Kayli, Aunt Madi, Gaga and Grandpa Randy!  Lol!  There is no shortage of basketball coaches in my family. . . I didn’t even mention my grandparents, brother, aunt, uncle and cousins!  Anyway, after easily making baskets standing right beside the goal and watching Justin and myself shoot baskets from a distance, Gracyn attempted to back up a step and “shoot” it in rather than just putting it in.  Lol!  This still needs some work. . .
