Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

This and That and Pizza Recipe

For those of you contacting me about the pizza dough recipe, there are two sites that I go to for some yummy recipes. I used PW's recipe from here. But I also go to this site that has great recipes including one for pizza dough that I'm trying next.

We have had some very nice weather lately. The girls had an opportunity to walk around in the rain..until the umbrella broke.



Moxie took a trip to the vet to get fixed. Poor thing. The anesthesia took her out, but once that wore off, nothing was holding her back. Try keeping a 62 pound puppy calm. It doesn't happen.



Since the weather was so nice, Jack decided to get his paint ball gun out. He was not allowed to shoot the girls, the cars, the house, or Moxie (although she did eat the paint balls), so he settled for trees, rocks, and the swing set.





Joy decided to wear one glove all day. Why one? Maybe she couldn't keep the left-handed one up on her little hand? Still it was cute. So was her chocolate ice-cream-covered mouth and hair that had not been brushed since the day before. I never got around to taking care of Joy. She always seems to be the ragamuffin around here. Probably because I never seem to get around to taking care of her.





Now, onto this morning's incident. Not a good way to start the day. All 3 girls wanted this cereal. Can you believe it? They tasted it out of the box first. Ivy asked, and she never, ever, never eats cereal. She just does not like it. So, Eva followed suit, then Joy. I told all 3 of them, "If you asked for it, you have to eat it all." They all replied with a joyous, "I know!"



Within 10 minutes, 2 of the girls were not happy. One asked for sugar on an already sweetened cereal. One asked if she could be done. I was the tough mom. "You asked for it. What did I say when I gave it to you?" So, they slowly force fed themselves until they finished. Ivy sat for 15 minutes in tears over that cereal, not wanting to eat it. Eva did not cry, but she will not ask for it again. Joy...well, she is Joy. She gobbled it up with a smile on her face and never complained once!

3 kind words:

LOL, the name of that cereal has me laughing here......I never took you for a Hippee girl! LOL *sigh*

The girl are too adorable! I love the tribute to Micheal Jackson aswell.....

My kids love the "Mom's Best" cereals...but I think that one may not be their favorite either. lol!

It's hard to keep an 11 pound dog calm after they've been spayed, as well. We just gave it up and trusted the stiches wouldn't come out. Today is the 8th day...hooray! She made it!

Blessings,
Sarah

You go, Mama! I really like that cereal brand, although the sugar content is not really lower than "regular" brands I found. My kids complain all the time that they have to eat too healthy. Poor things! Another mom told me I was way strict because I make my kids clean their plate. I like to be mean that way.
And the pizza looks yummy!
