Playing Catch Up

I'm behind and getting more behind every day it seems.  So I'm playing rewind here.  How far back should I go?  Hmmm.

My parents were here back in September, you know that.  (I love this picture.  Dad's looking at one camera and Mom is looking at another.  Suppose we should have gone one at a time with the cameras.)  Anyway, one of the reasons they came, besides to see their favorite daughter (Ha!) is because Parker turned eight and chose to get baptized a member of our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Ignore my fat arms.  Yes, I have to point those things out so no one thinks I was clueless. ;)

Dad and Da Boys!

Man, we're such the photographic family.   Sigh.

Getting ready to take the "plunge".  The lighting in that room was horrible!

Nervous, Parker? ;)

September 20, 2009.  (Family friend, Bob Gross, confirmed Parker a member of the church after he was baptized by his Dad!)  We are so proud of you, Parker, and this decision you made to be baptized in the church.

While I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago, Kevin made dinner for the kids one night (Well, he actually made dinner for them each night, but one in particular I wanted to show you.)

He made these individual chicken pot pies.  I had left a Pillsbury magazine called Pot Pies and Casseroles in the kitchen and he saw the cover photo and decided to make that one night.

He adjusted the recipe a bit and I don't know exactly what he used to make it, but it looked really good and if you want the recipe, let me know, or look for the Pillsbury magazine at your grocery store check out counters.  I know one of his alterations with the recipe was instead of using chopped cooked chicken breast, he used, get ready for this, some cut up frozen chicken nuggets.  Mmm. ;)  These have frozen mixed vegetables and jarred Alfredo sauce, also Pillsbury refrigerated garlic breadsticks.  He actually went to the store with the boys and bought the breadsticks.  (Great job, Hon!)

I love that he did these fun photos in case I wanted to put this on the blog.

Sam and his neighbor friend, Sean.  Not sure WHAT Sam was so upset about.

Man, if looks could kill!  I know he actually didn't really feel very good on this outing.  We'd gone to the carillon bell tower at KU Campus to listen to our friend, Liz, play the bells.

That's a happier baby!  Sam was playing with blocks one day a few weeks ago and said, "Mom, pichur".

Painted biscuits with food coloring and milk, cut into shapes.  Made butterflies with sausages for the bodies.  The boys thought these were pretty fun, but were disappointed that the color wasn't as bright after they baked.  Maybe I baked them a couple minutes too long.    I got the idea for these from Mandy's great blog, Gourmet Mom on-the-go.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!  Peanut Butter Bumble Bees.  I made these for a meeting I had at church with all the other ladies.  They are yummy and super simple to make!

DSCF4333

Recipe from Allrecipes for Peanut Butter Bumble Bees.  I must have followed this one as the recipe indicates as I didn't write any notes on it.

"Don't eat me.  Pleazzzzzzzzz."  Sorry, they were all eaten right up.

Playdoh fun.  Talented, isn't he.

Okay, okay, I may have had a hand in this.  But he did help put the rays on the sun.

DSCF4638

Taylor did this whole thing himself.  Again, they both asked me to take these pictures.  Now if I could just get them to pose for pictures when I actually WANT them to.  Sigh.

Okay, I feel better about getting caught up--a little.  Next up, Taylor's birthday from Monday last.

Great pictures, Katrina. I cracked up with your husbands dinner - not only because he made dinner (like a great dad) but because he took the time,arranged the food so nicely and took such great pictures for you! And those bees - too cute. I wish I could reach through and grab one!

LOVING your pictures. Gorgeous family you have. You are blessed.

Those chicken pot pies look like a yummy weeknight treat.

I love the pictures of your beautiful family.
I am so impressed that your husband took the time to photograph his dinner. My family gives me grief everytime I get the camera out and they have to wait to eat something, so I can't imagine any of them snapping a picture!
Your butterflies and bees are adorable.

I like that family photo of you guys! Congrats to your son on his baptism. And to your husband for making such a beautiful dinner! If I am gone around dinner time, I can't even count on my husband to put the pan of food I got ready in the oven.

Last thing on this last comment, fun bees!
