Sweet and Sour meatballs

For the sauce the meatballs go in I left out the sugar!  There is 8 tablespoons of sugar (that's the sweet part!)  If not it's just sour balls and no on likes sour balls!

Down below

I keep trying to fix the text in the post down below but every time it is publishing crazy.  Sorry.  You guys can figure it out though!

Sweet and Sour meatballs

So I keep this one random cookbook out so I can have one recpie in it.  I finally took time today to type it out so it can go into MY put together cookbook.  I thought I would share it with you.  It is one of Mrs. Murl's.
Murl’s Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Meatballs (makes about 24):
1 lb ground meat or ground turkey                                                                                                                            ½ cup bread crumbs                                                                                                 1 egg                                                                                                                          ¼ cup milk                                                                                                                                                season to taste
½ cup chopped onion                                                                                                                                                                
  ¼ tsp pepper                                                                                                            ½ cup catsup                                                                                                            6 tablespoons vinegar                                                                                               2 tsp Worcestershire sauce                                                                                       1 cup water

4 of the 6 kids that graduated nursery

Greyson, Keegan, Sophia, Sarah, Eli, Ashlyn all graduated this past year from nursery into primary.

Sissy's first dentist appointment

Sissy was so excited to get to go to the dentist today.  She watched very closely as I got my teeth cleaned, but when it was her turn that was another story.  She got in the seat and at first pretended we weren't there.  Then she pretended to be asleep!  Finally we got her to open her mouth enough to have her teeth brushed and flossed.  By the time our dr came in she was , for the most part, fully cooperating.  She was so excited to leave with a little bag of treats and a new buzz light year toothbrush.  Her and Brooklyn both get to be on the no cavities club sign for the week!  She has brushed her teeth three times this afternoon because she was so proud of herself.  Lets hope she keeps this enthusiasm up!

New year, New everything

 What's under the basket?

So with the new year everyone starts to think about what they are going to be doing different.  I don't make resolutions but I do have a list of projects to start and finish.  One major project will be new floors in the house!  Done by Trent and myself.  I think we might also repaint the living/ dining/ kitchen area.  Not sure what color.  I am very excited to get back on track with our schedules and start transforming our house.  Maybe myself along the way.

Sophia's first day of primary

Can you believe Sophia is old enough for primary?!  She was so excited and went right in and sat down.  Her teachers said she did wonderful listening and staying in her seat.  When we picked her up from her class she proudly announced she learned about baby Jesus and camels!  A new chapter of her life is beginning.  I am a little sad she is no longer a baby, but very blessed to be apart of this new adventure for her.
