Tasty late Tuesday
Okay do you ever wonder what to do with all that chocolate your kids get for Easter? I asked Patton what he wanted to make and he said chocolate cake so I decided to incorporated some of that candy into my cake. All I did was got a box cake mix (double chocolate for us) I added Carmel sauce, m&m's, three musketeers, and Hershey kisses. For the icing I just melted icing and drizzled it over and Carmel syrup and then added nuts, and three musketeers crushed up on top. Easy and delicious!
The winner of this week is Larry. Larry come get your yummy's!

Hide and seek 1,2,3....

I found you!
Just wanted to give Kamryn a big good job! She got her first hair cut and was so good! Kamryn is 18 months old (i think) and going to big big sister soon. Her mom and dad (Bri and nathaniel Trowbridge) are expecting in June. Another new baby to hold that is if grandma Bec will give him up!

Neighbor Larry went Mushroom hunting and brought back these big mushrooms. "Sweet Mama's" as Patton would say!

Patton is ready to get them cooked

Garfield could hardly keep his excitement in

Parker and Patton got to meet "Smiles" today. Parker really thinks his name is smiles! Very cute of Parker tonight. Patton did not show much interest except when mommy was holding him.

Big cousin Parker. All Parker wanted to do was pet him!

The boys with the proud papa

Bobo and his new grandbaby

Proud Auntie M. I thought my kids were cute Miles is just perfect. I guess us Tompson's know how to make cute kids!
Well the two turkeys finally got their turkeys! Brads is a little bit on the small side and he accidentally tore off the tail feathers but oh well at least he finally got his. Brad was very excited that he and his dad went hunting together. Now if we could only work on his deer hunting skills he will have it made!

Well at 9:28 Miles Cannon Tompson entered this world! He is 8lbs and 3 oz. and was 20 inches long. What a perfect little guy he is too! He has a little bit of a cone head but that is okay it will be gone by tomorrow.
Poor Lindsey tried so hard but by 8:30 the Dr. said it was time to do a c-section. I can't wait to go hold him and love on him tomorrow. I did call home to tell Parker who was very excited and wanted to know ASAP I heard him tell Patton that smiles was here. So I am afraid that he might be nicked named smiles from us. Better go to bed nighty night smiles!

Hey world hows it going

Look at all the hair! That explains the heartburn

He had his tongue going the whole time. Feed me mommy feed me

The one eyed peeper

Congrats Matt and Lindsey we love you!
Tasty Tuesday is here again
This Tuesday we made cookie ice cream bars. All I did was make chocolate chip cookies and added Carmel, oats, and coconut to it. Baked them and then when they were done I put tanillia (Patton's version of vanilla) ice cream and smashed in between two cookies and yummy!

Last weeks winner Tara won this cute baking dish!

Who will be this weeks winner??????

The wiener is Shanna Ginder. Stay tuned for more yummy treats!

I will keep you posted and hopefully pictures real soon! Wow another baby in the family that won't come home with me:) One I can enjoy and say here mom and dad I am done, what a change that will be.

This is going to be a hard post for me to add. Payton got a text message this evening telling her that her dad's mother her grandmother has past away. It is very hard for me to console her because there is past history there. The only thing I can do is ask for you to say a little prayer for Payton and her dad's family to get through their tough times. I relate my life to music and find peace in music. I stumbled upon this song and it says it all. I cannot change the past but can only make the future a brighter one and can only change myself. So I have asked the good Lord for forgiveness for the past situations and to let her Grandma be at peace. Sister I love you and would love to take your pain away if I could. I wish I knew what to tell you and how to make it better. I know you have a lot of questions and feelings yourself that I am sure you feel bad for feeling. We are only human. I always tell you nobody is perfect. I can not change our past but vow to make our future a good and bright one. I just want to be the best mom to you I know how. I love you more than life itself.
Life is so short to have regrets and to try to always change what we cannot so why not try to change what we can and be better people.
I came across this and I think everyone she watch it. It touched me tremendously. No matter what your age, life is to short not to carry out your dreams. This women did just that and touched the lives of many including me! People live their lives with many regrets. Always follow your dreams know matter what they are. With that I better go chasing some of mine! Enjoy!
I found Patton like this yesterday afternoon. He was going through the house with his ipod in singing as loud as he could. I went to check on him and he was sound asleep and I could hear the music as soon as I walk in the room. The song you hear is the song he played over and over. It is Parker's favorite song and I would have to say Patton's to.

Tasty Tuesday's would like to present the Oreo Cream Pie!

I asked Patton what he wanted to make for today and named off a few things. His all time favorite is Oreo Cream Pie so that is what he picked. Easy enough and quick I agreed.

You will need

2 boxes Oreo pudding

2.5 cups cold milk

1 tub cool whip

crushed Oreo's for the top

Put your milk and Oreo pudding in a bowl mix it up, then add half of the container of cool whip and mix that all up. Pour into a Oreo crumb pie crust, they are by the pie crust at the grocery store. Add the remaining cool whip on top and then the crushed Oreo's and all done.

The recipe is also on the back of the pie crust. Very cheap and easy and yummy! ENJOY:)

Okay I did not get a full shot of it because once it hits the table it is gone!

The night before Easter Sunday....
The boys were getting out of the bath when Brad spotted Ricky the raccoon in the front yard. He yelled at the boys to look out their window to see. I tucked the boys in and went back to check on them and I found Patton laying on top of Parker after rearranging him told he me "The raccoon will break through my window and get me." While laughing and reassuring him he finally went to sleep.

Penny was such a good raccoon hunter! She was passed out waiting for the Easter Bunny to come so she could sleep right through it.

Get up, get up the Easter Bunny came!

The Easter bunny came and brought lots of eggs.

Brad and I heard Parker wake up and tell Patton to wake up the Easter Bunny left a lot of eggs in the front yard.

There is Patton he would pick one up and if he did not like the candy or it did not have money in it he would put it back on the ground.

Doesn't Brad look thrilled. Morris decided to make himself comfortable on his lap.
Egg-tastic weekend
Saturday we colored eggs. My nephew Mitchell came to help.

Payton, Parker, and Patton doing their eggs. With Payton's busy schedule she doesn't get to join in the fun, but we were glad she was able to color eggs with us!

Can you tell what Patton's favorite color is?

Thankful Thursday
Well Patton did something that really surprised me. I know he has a good heart but hardly displays it. He got a Easter card in the mail with $5.00 in it. I found him trying to stuff that money into his and Parker's rice bowls from school. If you are not familiar the rice bowl is something the kids are suppose to put change into during the Lenten season to help those less fortunate children. Patton says he wants to give the money to his friends like Maddox and Will so that their moms can buy them food. I explained to him that the money would not go to them but to other little boys and girls. He said okay I will give it to those friends Muma.
I had a tear in my eye at the end of our conversation. It really touched me that he is learning the true meaning of life, to take care of all of his brother and sisters just like God and Jesus take care of you and me. I also felt a sense of achievement as a parent. Wow I am doing something right. Well me and St. Joe school and parish.
If we all could have good in our hearts then this world would be a better place. I said instead of giving something up for lent I was going to look at the brighter more positive side of things. I like it on this side. Yes it is hard not to be negative, but it makes me feel better when I am positive. I challenge each one of you to do something good and caring for someone else by tomorrow night. See how good it feels. Try to look at the brighter side of every situation too, trust me you will get more out of life! We can just sit around and do nothing and wait for the world to change all by its self or we could all get our act together and do something to make it a better place to live. If we all try to better people and better disciples of Christ this world will be a better place don't you think?

Wonderful Wednesday
I finally got the front room repainted and my pictures of the kids hung and could not be more happy! I have wanted 16x20's of the kids for a long time but everywhere I went they wanted an arm and a leg. I stumbled on Amber in Newton and she has taken the kids pictures ever since. She is great at what she does and has awesome prices. Check her out at
