Congratulations on the baby girl, Coach.you're gonna be a great Daddy! I'm a Daddy's girl myself. In my days of dating, I always judged guys by what I thought my Daddy would say. nothing like the bond between a Daddy & his daughter. (except maybe a mama & son)

OMGOODNESS y'all, Seth's b-day cake turned into a hot mess!!!! Star, where are you???

found a recipe for a strawberry cake on Pinterest. tried doing 4 layers. 2 of the layers tore up in the pans. tried to piece them as I was icing it. the icing had coolwhip in it....a runny mess. Yes the cakes were completely cool & yes, the icing was very cold, I double checked.
Anyhoo, Seth now has 2 cakes, 1 layer & goo in 1 container & 1 layer & goo in the other container. I cried!!!!!!! dried my tears, cleaned up my mess & when he came in from class I told him about it, he said, " Mama, you know I don't care what it looks like as long as it tastes good!" God bless that saweet baby boy of mine cause it sure ain't looking pretty!

We meet through conversations here, so any time is okay to post! Let your imagination be your guide! You can check some of the back posts on any Wednesday.

I am with Seth on this one! It really does not matter what it looks like. This happened to my SIL and we just made it into a trifle!

we spent the day on a trip to the lake and visits to numerous thrift stores. Found a couple of things, one of them a fun memory of canninemom! You can see why I just had to get this, an angel polar bear....

Did anyone have any weird things going on with their MMC connection today around 2:30ish (est)? The main site would allow me to log in, but it took me a page asking me to join up with a platinum membership and would not let me go anywhere's else. I logged out and opened it back up 2 hours later and everything appears to be fine. Kinda weird.....

my thoughts wander to Wish as well, the poor thing must be so lost without Louann, and there is no way to explain her sudden departure.

8-oz can tomato sauce

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a frying pan, brown the ground beef and onion; drain. Stir in sauce mix and tomato sauce and heat until hot and bubbly. Combine cheese and sour cream. Pour hot meat mixture into ungreased 12 X 8-in. or 13 X 9-in. baking dish. Spoon cheese mixture over meat. Separate crescent dough into two rectangles. Place the rectangles over the cheese mixture. Combine Parmesan cheese and butter; crumble evenly over dough. Bake for 18-25 minutes, until deep golden brown. Cut and serve.

About my package from Louanne, CM3: The title of this huge book is An Ideals Treasury of Christmas, a 2-in1 Christmas Collection. The first part is "Home for Christmas," and I want to share the first poem that introduces the first section.

Welcome Home

The snow is white and glistening;
The stars shine bright above.
I'm going home for Christmas
Home to those I love.

~~Gladys Billings Bratton

The second section is entitled "The Greatest Gift." One story from this section is entitled "A Gift from the Heart" by Norman Vincent Peale. With your permission (Can't you just hear Louanne saying that?) I want to share the last paragraph and insert CM3's name instead of the name of the person in the original story:

"Strange isn't it? A shy woman alone in a great impersonal city. You would think that nothing she could do would affect anyone. And yet, by trying to give away love, she brought the true Spirit of Christmas into our lives, the Spirit of selfless giving. That was Louanne's secret--and she shared it with us all."

Ryan, I think you and Sugar are right. She is right there with Saint Nicholas, drinking coffee after each glittery sip, saying, "Glitter! Drink up!"
