Molasses Memories!!!

My Grammie Leighton was visiting us for about 3 weeks and having her so close by brought back alot of memories for me. First and foremost was when she made her Molasses cookies and yep I got the reciepe. These little cookies brought the memories of me as a little girl living in a hick town called Willcox. (no offense to the family still there;)
I remember always coming into Grammies house and knowing there would ALWAYS be cookies in her glass brown cookie jar. It reminds me of the many christmas's spent at Grammies and Pupa's house with Gigi eating her raindeer candycane's and big bowls of homemade eggnog, the talent shows and pupa reading the christmas story. Then we would all go outside and see Santa and his reindeer flying over grammies and rush home to our bedroom with christmas lights hanging in our room with a little christmas tree. The smell of Grammies has been permiating through out my house for the last couple of days and I love how much that brings back. I love listening to good ol frank sinatra and all the old timers. I love to listen to that music and just reminis. Wow too think cookies brought all this on, but hey if you tasted them and smelled your house as they were cooking, you would always want them in your cookie jar too!!!!!!

Yummy Taco Soup!!!

I got this recipe off our cluff family website and I made it last night and served it with Fritos chips. It was so good but it makes a ton like 12-15 servings so I took some over to my favorite neighbors and still have left overs for Brian for lunch!! It's so good you won't mind!

1 can kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 can tomatoes with green chilies
1 can fiesta cheese soup

You were the your just a mom!

I was hanging my clothes up in my closet just now and Doyle was looking at a picture that i have of me and Brian on our wedding day that is on one of my shelves in the closet. He says to me

D: Mom this is you?

M: yep, that is the day I married daddy.

D: You were the princess?

M: I guess i was, that was so nice to say to mommy son!

D: Now you are just a mom :0

I didn't know quite what to say but I guess we have to princesses before we can become mommies. Cause you can't be a princess and a mommy is that what he's telling me. Oh well I can't be to hard on myself......Cinderella became a princess ;)

The monsoons

I love to watch the storms roll in. This was so pretty.

So Sweet...

I babysat my Niece (matt and Kristens) little girl the other day and had my camera with me so I thought I'd take some pictures. Jarred (Amy and Dustin's) little boy wouldn't sit still long enough, he thought it was so cool that Aunt Tif was crawling around on the ground after him and made it a game. They are so stinking cute I could eat them....

I was playing around with my camera the other day. I thought these were so cute of the kids.

While mom is away the kiddos will play.....what the heck

I found these pics that Kaely took of the kids yesterday while I was in the house cleaning. They went out to the garage to eat their push pops. What the heck is Doyle doing with a pair of scissors and he looks like he's got a plan.....scary

My first batch of HUGE cinnamon rolls. They were so good. I got this recipe off of one of the blogs I visit. I will post the recipe for those of you who love to devour HUGE cinnamon rolls!
