I realized yesterday that I didn't share the apple dip recipe with you like I had planned! Blond moment! it is: 8oz cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1tsp vanilla Beat with an electric mixer and you're done! Easy peasy lemon squeezy as the kids have been saying haha!

K took another half day off work this afternoon and picked up Chinese for lunch. Beef chow mein with fried rice, crab rangoon, and egg drop soup! Yummy!!

We ran to Alco because we saw that something we had seen and were thinking of using as a photography prop went on sale.

So this guy came home with us! I have quite a few ideas on how to use him! My first thought; how adorable would a baby look snuggled up in his lap?! And a toddler running around him and playing and posing with him?! So sweet! He would do a bit of double duty too. We have a supersize night coming up soon in Awana and he'll come with me as my supersize item.

Then I was off to a friends in a neighboring town to do some more card making. K drove and he went to Wal Mart and got a haircut and a few other necessities we can't get in town.

This is a bit of what we did...the cards with the flowers were made with napkins! Crazy but they turned out so cute! The little snowman with the Do you hear what I hear may be a few of my Christmas cards sent to a few special people this year. Coloring them in takes forever! And then I still have to cut them out and glue them on the cards! Like I don't have enough to do with my "free time" right?! But they are so cute! Someone gave me a little container of this fluffy looking powdery stuff which when I glue it on the lamb, the bunny's tail, and the little pom pom of the snowman's hat makes them look fuzzy and fluffy!
Well, I suppose I'd better get back to work, I have a bit of typing to do for our Praise and Thanksgiving Service Sunday night and four more of the card fronts that I've already stamped to color in...and most likely I'll stamp and color more. And I have to get up tomorrow and get the house cleaned and a few things straightened up so we can watch our friend's wedding in Brazil online!
Hope you all had a great day and you'll be able to relax and enjoy the weekend!

Where have I been all week?? I've missed a ton of posts! Looks like you have been busy as ever.

I LOVED seeing the photos! They're really, really good. And, my goodness, the scenery you have!!! The sunsets and the corn and the hay bales! Just gorgeous! The shadow pic of you and K is awesome too.

I'm going to have to try your apple dip. The boys eat apples all the time, I bet they'd like it.

Yes! That Shutterfly deal was pretty cool! After I did my post, I got my promotional code by the end of the day. I worked on my cards last night. I thought they were giving away the photo paper cards, but it's the nice cardstock 5x7's (like the baby announcements). I put them in the cart and they were over $70! I entered my code and the price dropped to only $9 for shipping!! Can't beat that.

Well, I hope you and K have a fabulous weekend. I have to get my rear in gear and clean up my filthy house. Daddy and the big boys went to their grandpa's house. They've been gone for 4 days and I've done pretty much NOTHING... well, except sew a bit. hahaha! They'll be home tomorrow, so I better get busy! :)
