Meatball Night

We had a Meatball Night the other night and had friends over to kick off the school year! It was amazing. I didn't get a picture of the finished garnished meatballs but if you could imagine; Spaghetti noodles with big meatballs sitting on top and sprinkled with Parmesan Cheese, a Cesar Salad, Garlic Bread and dessert of course!

These meatballs were better than Buca and cost alot less also. This was my cheat day, so I'm in the clear with Shaun T. !! :o)                 Ciao!

Has Our Summer Fun Really Ended?

We definitely need a longer summer vacation from school. What happened to those old school days when we had almost three months for summer vacation? Obviously we don't have that anymore. We have been in school for three days now and in California it feels like summer is just beginning! Today we reach a high of 103 degrees - well that's a little too hot! I just wished that school would start in October, which is when we start to cool down a bit and finish school at the end of June, which is when we have our June gloom. Doesn't that make sense.... it does to me :o)

First Day of School   
To everyone ~ have a wonderful school year with your children ~ they are growing up too fast!!

Happy Birthday To My Sweet Peanut!

This week we celebrated my sweet daughters birthday! I think it will be a week long celebration, as usual! Today we are going to celebrate it at Disneyland, The Happiest Place on Earth! Until you're getting pushed and shoved by rude people and all you can do is take a deep breath. But we still have a great time!

 Happy Birthday my little Peanut! We Love you :o)

Pumpkins and Getting Ready For the Fall

Have you planted your pumpkins? We started our pumpkins in the beginning of July. They are growing a lot of flowers but, no bulbs yet. Every day my daughter goes out to water them and I think they grow an inch every night! It's an amazing plant. We left on vacation for 1 1/2 weeks and look how fast they grew.
