Jalapeno Poppers

I am addicted, terribly addicted to Pinterest.  I blame it all on Abbey Thompson, a sweet girl I go to church with.  I actually made it into the Pinterest life before you had to request an invite.  I just signed up and it's gone downhill from there.  I turn to Pinterest to find recipes, craft ideas, birthday party ideas, appetizers for parties and family get-togethers.  I was helping a couple of friends put together a housewarming party for some sweet friends, Norm and JoJo, who just bought a house not to long ago and I wanted to take something to eat that I had never made, so of course, to Pinterest I go!

I never realized how many things you could make with crescent rolls and I will tel you that the ones I buy at Aldi taste so much better than Pillsbury. Yes I said it, something is better than Pillsbury.  Please don't shoot the messenger!  I think they are called jalapeno crescent poppers or something, I just call them all kinds of yumminess!!!

I was making them for quite the crowd.  This is what I did:

4 cans of crescent rolls (each crescent roll cut in half)
4 block of cream cheese
1 pound of bacon
1 jar of jalapenos

I rolled them up and pinched together the ends and backed them at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.  They were a hit and so good!!!!

Oh How I Love You Rain

I love love love rain.  I don't mind getting wet when I'm out running errands.  I don't mind driving in it.  I just love it.  I swear I'm living in the wrong place.  I would love to live in the rainy northwest.  Sooooo, my point is when I see rain coming to our area, I get all giddy!  I try to always have my camera with me so I can take pictures of cool clouds and rainbows.....these are some of the pictures I have captured.  Let me remind you, I am not a photographer.

She Is Wonderfully Made

My Maggie.....she is such a peaceful child.   She has blond hair with so many natural highlights and low lights that people pay good money for on a regular basis.  She has beautiful blue yes that have a certain sparkle to them.  She has the most perfect eyebrows I've ever seen.  She has perfect teeth and won't ever need braces.  She is really growing up. It's like one day, she is my little brown haired baby and the next, she is a beautiful young lady who loves God with all of her heart.

 She is going into the sixth grade this year and this is a year for big changes.  She has recently gotten her ears pierced and is in the process of transitioning from glasses to contacts.

She thought getting her ears pierced was going to be just horrible, as you can see from the look on her face, but afterwards, she decided that it wasn't so bad.  She has done fantastic with her contacts.  She is excited that she can finally wear cute and fun sunglasses!  

She is my big girl and I'm proud to be her Momma.

Pure Sweetness

I love those little 6 year old toes......There is nothing I love more than a toe biscuit or foot sandwich, clean of course.

Fun at the Lake

We went back to the Jordan's lake house on Saturday the 7th to celebrate the 4th of July again with even more friends!  There was probably 30 people there including the kids.  The kids swam from about 2:30 that afternoon until 9:30 that night.....they were completely worn out by the time we left to go home.  We have the best group of friends to hang out with from the police department.  We always have such a good time!

Hanging out with cousin Patrick

Patrick throws Maggie in the lake and she did a back buster.

The girls decide it's Patrick's time to go in.

Just a jumpin'.

Sarah finally got brave enough to jump off the pier and she loved it!

Maggie going off the slide.

And Sarah....what can I say?

Hope every one is having a great summer!!!

God Bless America

What country can you be in where you are surrounded by rednecks at the lake, holding table umbrellas in the nasty lake for shade?

I mean, really?  Is there another country so great?  

We had a great holiday celebrating the birth of this nation with friends at Logan Martin Lake.  We had lunch and then stayed out in the water for a couple of hours then headed off on the boat to see fireworks.  It was an amazing day!  Can't wait to go back on Saturday to see more friends, eat more BBQ and see more fireworks!  

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July!!
