"Whenever you make these cookies for someone, be sure to bring along several copies of the recipe! You will be asked for it, I promise!!!"
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

I'm a proud momma

The boys had their second game of the season last night. Wowzers... very fun! JV won against the Coachella Valley Arabs 33-0. Then the Varsity came out and won 28-7. It wasn't an easy game. Our guys had to really fight for it. I'm so proud of our Trojans! I was talking to Jordan this morning and he said they have played the easy teams, now they are gonna play against the hard teams. {like we get to play 29 for the Battle of the Bell in November, and right now, 29 also won their first 2 games... that is just my commentary, not Jor's opinion ;)}
So, here are a few pics from the game, they are both #72:
JV - Dalin is the center and a Defensive lineman, so he is in the game the whole time.

Varsity - Jordan is an Offensive Lineman and was one of the captains this game.

And there was some other fun at the game too. Harry and his football pal Mackenzie were hanging out again. Her brother is #6, Cody Blankenship.

We Sk8ed

Here we are having fun on Harry's very first time ice skating. We went skating at Snoopy's Home Ice in Santa Rosa, CA. It was a neat place for Harrison to have his first skating experience. The snack bar is called the Warm Puppy Cafe and I just couldn't resist snapping a pic of these "Charlie Brownies".
If you ever find yourself near Santa Rosa, CA, you should make a trip to this ice rink and the Charles M. Schultz Museum right next door.
I used Studio J
to make this fast and easy layout. Wonderland paper pack, Front and Center in the Middle, and kit mix 6.

ice ice baby

I just placed a Studio J order. I absolutely love how simple and yet awesome this program is. I wanted to make some super fast layouts of my recent trip to northern California with Harrison to visit my parents. I used the pre-set toggle accents and didn't make many changes in order to save time & keep them easy. Here is a cute page. I used the Wonderland paper kit and the Fantastic Five pattern and Kit Mix 1. Super-easy, super-fast,super-cute, and super-affordable!
