What I'm Baking

On Sundays after church our family eats lunch together. Me, Mom, Christopher, Dad (if he's not working), Jessica, Matt, Charlotte, and Danny. Sometimes we go to a restaurant, sometimes we go to our house or Jessica's, with either pizza or chinese or having a meal from the crockpot or such; whatever Jessica and Mom have decided the night before.

Whenever someone's birthday is coming up, we have Birthday Sunday. That means the Sunday before their birthday we all go out to eat where they want to go, and give them their presents. My dad's birthday is coming up next, July 4th (special, eh?).

Now, my dad is a firefighter. That means somedays he is gone the whole day. So, on his b-day Sunday, he was at the fire station. He is also at the fire station the next two Sunday's after that AND he is there on his actual birthday.

Mom decided we would have the Sunday Group over on Thursday night (plus Uncle Reb and Aunt Carolyn), the day before his b-day. Which means I have some baking to do!

For Thursday night we are getting a chocolate cake from Costco (very delicious) and I am making
Red, White and Blueberry Squares. On Friday, when we go up to the fire station, we have to bring a lot of dessert. You see, at the fire station, it's all men (maybe one girl, MAYBE). Because it's all men, there are lots of big bellies to feed. So for Friday I am baking chocolate chip cookies, banana pudding squares, and we are getting cupcakes from Costco (oh, how we love Costco).

Well, that's what's going on. I am glad I get to bake some goodness. Firefighters love my goodness.

Here are some pictures of the flowers that we have in our yards (front and back).
I love it when are lilies start blooming.

This is actually a $5 bouqet from Kroger. So far it has stayed "fresh" for nine days.

hehehe. . .

Whoa, it's been over a week.

Well, here I am again, miss me?

I haven't actually been busy, I've just been a deadbeat. I helped in Jessica and Matt's garage sale, made some coin. It's a good thing I made money considering I had to wake up at 5 a.m. There were things we thought would sell well that didn't, and vice versa. We had A LOT of clothes and books. Overall, the sale went well and everything that was left went to Goodwill.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while.  Last week was VBS (vacation bible school).  I was a youth worker and a clown so it was pretty hectic.  I had a lot of fun helping though.

Since I helped in VBS, I got a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A sandwich.  I also got a gift card to Bath and Body Works from the director of the VBS class.  I have no idea what I'm going to buy; there is so much good stuff to choose from.

Saturday, Mom and I went to Chick-fil-A and I used my coupon.  Now what I am going to tell is the reason for this post:

It was my first chicken sandwich ever!!

I had always gotten the kid's meal with nuggets but because I had the coupon I tried the sandwich.  I liked it. . . a lot.  It is definitely what I am going to order from now on.
