She Made It, We Ate It!

Kaylee was bored this afternoon.

Kaylee: "Mom, I'm Bored."

Cindy: "Why don't you go make dinner for the family tonight?"

When I got home, the kitchen smelled VERY good - so good it was hard to wait for the official call of "Dinner's Ready!" But finally, it was ready!

Looks good, huh?

She served us BBQ'd Chicken Breast, brushed with Olive Oil and Herbs, Multi-Color Corkscrew Pasta, a Zucchini, Mushroom, Stewed Tomato and Yellow Squash dish to go with it, and fresh grated Parmesan cheese to top it all off!

Kaylee liked it...

Tyler liked it...

In fact, we all liked it! Even the chickens, who happily devoured the leftover tidbits when we were done... just the veggie bits though, no chicken for the chicks - they're already crazy enough without a case of Mad Hen Disease!!

Great job Kaylee - you should definitely get into the dinner making rotation!! We are SO proud of you!

Danee and Grandma

We're over in the Tri-Cities today, which meant that Daneekins got to spend some quality time with Grandma Brinkerhoff...

And tomorrow, she'll make the rounds at the Mathews Family Reunion, meeting lots of cousins, aunts, uncles and more!

We'll TRY to remember to get lots of good pictures...

Today is a Very Important Day!

As I type this, Ellysa is sitting in my car, anxiously waiting for a driving test administrator to come and start her test...

It's been a long road from that January morning that she turned 16, but it's very likely that less than an hour from now, she will be a licensed driver!

No longer will Cindy and I need to drive her all over the countryside... It's terrifying and exciting all at once! I'm really proud of the improvements she's shown in her driving the last week or so, and I feel strangely at ease with things.

Her time slot was ten minutes ago, and nobody's gone out to her yet... I can just imagine how nervous she's getting.

Oh! It's her time! GOOD LUCK ELLYSA!!
