Super-Duper Pizza Recipie

Pizza Crust
1 envelope Dry Yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
1 tsp. Sugar
3/4 c. luke warm Water
1 3/4 c. Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
Mix the yeast, sugar and water. Let it bubble. Then add the flour and salt. Beat for 5 min. Roll out on your pan. Add all the rest or your pizza toppings, (sauce, cheese, exc.). Bake 475 deg. for 12- 15 min.
Brooke gave me this pizza recipie. She told me how good it was and so I wanted to try it out...Wow... This IS the best home-made pizza crust that I have had, so I want to share it. As you can tell it was half way gone before I pulled the camera out to capture the moment. All the other home-made crusts that I have had were always toasted on the outside and doughy in the middle. Not this one. Perfectly cooked!...Try it out!

John Wayne and I ate the olive/pepperoni/onion side. He sure liked it.

Movie Night

I thought this was so cute, so I had to take a picture. The boys were getting ready to watch a movie and all gathered together in a "nest" of pillows. All they need now is a big bowl of popcorn!

Baby Boots Blessing

We blessed Baby Boots on my parents anniversary, Labor Day Weekend, but I never got pictures of the baby and the family. Its a little late but at least I got a picture of all the boys all dressed up for church. Heres Baby Boots at 6 months old.

T.T. took this one. It would've been a great picture if MyLoves head wasn't cut off.

Heres the retake. Much better.

T.T.'s Photography

I got into my camera and found all of these random pictures. T.T. will take my camera and take pictures of random things around the house...It just makes me laugh at some of them, and alot of them are pretty good and creative for a 6 year old. Who knows maybe it will progress into something bigger down the road...Here are some of them....

Homemade Laundry Detergent!

There are only 3 ingredients in this detergent. No fillers or harmful chemicals in it. You know exactly what is in it! You can find all the ingredients in the same soap isle. Use any brand of laundry bar that is avaliable. You can buy a 2 year supply of detergent for under $50. How about that kind of savings!
Laundry Detergent
1 laundry bar, any brand, grated up finely
1 1/2 cups Borax
3 cups Washing Soda

After you have grated the laundry bar, combine the Borax and Washing Soda in a large bowl. All you need is 1 Tablespoon of the detergent for a normal size load. If you have heavier soiled clothes or a larger load use 2 Tbs.

Bar D Wranglers

We had the oppritunity to watch the -D Wranglers perform in Snowflake, Feb 4th, 2010. What a neat show. Here is MyLove, Matt Palmer and his son after the show. It was fun to see Matt after so many years. The Palmer Family were friends of our family back before all of us kids were married. Back in the Good ol' Days...

Heres 2 of the other performers, the rhythem guitarist and bass player signing CDs.

This is the famous Sy Scarbrough, signing one of friends CDs. He is the one that put together the Bar D Wranglers 30something years ago.

Jr. Reds Creation

Jr. Red and John Wayne were at the table while I was making a pair of chaps. Of course just like any other kids, they wanted to make something also. So a little later, Jr. Red said, "Mommy look what I made." I turned around and saw this on his head. I thought that was so funny and cute. MyLove and I just had to laugh! What a Kodak moment!
