27 page sides
I started a Creative Memories navy Premiere 12X12 album with January of 2003. I finished up with Weezie's first day of Kindergarten.
I have to tidy up the items I bought and then I will put my scrapbook stuff away for a while.
We had a great time and Cedar Lodge was perfect Twelve of us used the downstairs area for our work space and we all slept upstairs. We just trekked off to the dining hall at mealtime.

Carnival was great!
It was a blast from the past for Sis and I. We did several skating carnivals when we were kids. She did even more than I did though.
If you follow the above link - the woman in the blue ski jacket in the picture is Weezie's coach Melissa.

This is all that I have done of Spring Queen so far. About 3 hours worth. For those of you who aren't familiar with the design, she will eventually have a lovely tiara in her hair, be wearing a gorgeous yellow gown, and she will be holding a large bouquet of flowers.
You can't tell, but the fabric is Wedgewood Lugana. I am also using that fabric for my sister's Angel of the Sea. It's really a nice blue colour, not that greyish one in the photo.

Thank you Old Navy!
The most expensive thing was the boys rain pants ( lined) for $10.50.
So when I got home I promptly weeded out Kaiser drawer and filled a bag with size 3 shorts, etc. for my nephew to use.

Kaiser's birthday, Part 1
Then we went and got the kids fed in the party room. Hot dogs were gobbled up fairly quickly by almost everyone. They were starving after the hour of exercise. We almost forgot to bring home the presents and I owe another $30 for extra kids. ( the basic price is for 10 kids, then they are $7.50 a kid after that ). Oh well, small price to pay for them not messing up my house!

What doughnut are you?
|You Are a Boston Creme Donut|
But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.
You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.
You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out.
Now that is just scary! Those are my favourites. And "Boooooooo" to the quiz creator for not having a Tim Hortons choice!

Summer Queen update
I finished this rotation up on Saturday morning before we left for Richmond. I didn't get to take the photo until just now though. I also need to change back to working on Angel of the Sea.
Summer now has her head completed except for the beads. This is about 29 hours of work.

I only met you a few times, but I considered you a friend. Your stitching was as lovely as your smile. I will miss you.

Our favorite casserole
This isn't a recipe so much as a method, but here goes:
I use my Mikasa large oval French White casserole dish, which is 2.8 litres.
Main ingredients - 2 cans of cream of something soup. I usually use mushroom.
- 2 boxes of mac and cheese
- approx. a lb of ground beef or turkey.
- a good sized squirt ( 3 tbsp? ) of ketchup or barbeque sauce.
- half a cup of milk
What you do-
Get the noodles boiling and the meat browning. Dump the soup,the milk, the cheese powder stuff and the ketchup in the largest mixing bowl you have. Add spices of choice and a bunch of grated cheese, whatever kind you like. If you are not having salad with this ( we are tonight ) then add whatever veggies you have hanging around. Cook partway first. Peas are good with this. Mix this up until it looks like sauce. Add the meat once it is browned and drained. Drain cooked noodles and add them too. Mix it up well and put in casserole dish. Cover.
Cooking - At 350 it will take at least 30-40 minutes to get bubbly. Once it is, take it out and add topping. I prefer crushed up taco chips mixed with grated cheese. Leave the lid off and stick it back in the oven for 10 or so minutes until the cheese is all melty.
