Thursday--I figured out how to add a picture! WOOHOO!!! Thsi is JoGail at the tea party she and Hailey had.Yes, father the alarm will help me next week.....however I know for a fact it will NOT get by my BIG butt out of bed..........I also know I can hit snooze at least 6 times and get away with it since Coy will not be here......He has his supt conference in Austin.

Hailey spent last night. I went to bed at 10:30 and they were still up. They were up in the playroom pretending that puppy (Hailey uses the back up one) were babies. They had diapers adn clothes everywhere. I took some picts of them playin the eukalalie to puppy. I didn't go walking this morning. I was afraid JG and Hailey would wake up and decide to make breakfast for themselves, so I sacrificed walking for a day. :) Around 11 Hailey's mom brought Hailey's older sister, Ashley over to play with Grace. Ashley is a year behind Grace. So they were all over here this afternoon !

I tried a new recipe for supper and I think it made the best gravy I have ever made---and I didnt do a thing!

1-1 1/2 pounds skirt steak or round steak

1 can french onion soup (Yes, I am aware there are onionsn in it)

1 can cream mushroom soup

1 soup can water

Sear (brown) steaks in skillet. Put in roasting pan. Cover with soups and water. Bake 325 degress for a couple of hours.

It reminded me of the meals mom used to make whenwe were growing up.So far we've had three new recipes this week and they've all turned out good. Could it be because I actually followed them without trying to doctor them up on my own??????hum......I try to post the strawberry dessert one soon. JoGail and Coy really like it. (it has eagle brand in it so I knew it had to be good!).

What's getting up and a parade have to do with "world class family gravy"??? Yep, the family secret's out and ferernor's can do it!!!!
Too hot and humid for a parade!!I'd go if I could sit in the truck with the AC running full tilt!!
Just say "no"---works for a lot of things.
