Making Cookies

"The cookies have to be rolled out to a certain thickness - almost so you can see through the dough" (and that's all the secret she told me).    
Miss K is going to be the "Chef" of the family.  She loves to cook (unlike me -  one time she asked her dad  why I just cooked "plain".-- I don't add lots of spices or "extras" like they do..)  and enjoys setting a pretty table. She gets excited when she gets cooking presents.
Maybe when she grows up, she'll be my personal chef ........and bring me goodies to eat.....

Weekend News

 There is a pecan grove near our house, and it looks like there will be a good crop this year.  The limbs are so full they are almost on the ground.  I'm surprised because we've had such little rain.
 It a pretty sight to see the trees are full but it's also just as nice to imagine sitting under the trees - cool in the 90 degree weather.
 We had family yesterday, DH's parents.  The new puppy on FIL's shoulder is the latest addition to our family -- like we actually needed another animal.  She's a tea cup, smaller than the cat, and follows DH's every step.

That's what he wanted --- a shadow.....

Lil' Miss Sam is used to being the only one in grandpa's lap and was a little jealous........

I did get some sewing done today,, I'm trying to finish something so I can link up to Blackberry Creek's UFO's.

Random thought for the day!

This is the conversation my daughter posted on FB":

    Mom: "Sam, what do you want for supper?"
    Sam: "I don't know, but how do snowmen walk?"

 LOL!!!!  What !!!  where did that thought come from?  It's 100 degrees outside and she's thinking about snowmen.   I never  thought about it - and it was a pretty good question.  If it snows this year, we will have a snowman with legs...  

And Sam is 3 years old --- do you remember your children coming up with  such questions?  I don't..

The long awaited Wedding......

Heather and Matt finally set a date and were married this past weekend. Robbie,her biological father is on the left and our son, her step-father, is on the right. This picture was taken shortly after she had a "nervous" crying spell.
Her Uncle Jason, from Texas, is on the left and he officiated the wedding.
The flower girl and ring bearer said they would walk but not touch!!
Miss K and Grandpa, she was one of the bridesmaids.
The flower girl showing her mommy how she was going to pose in the piccies.
My mom and dad, laughing at the festivities -- agreeing the flower girl will do as she pleases...

Our daughter, the wedding director, and the bride-to-be, trying to decide on where everyone should stand.

Heather, Matt and the flower girl, Sam, being so shy....

The setting was a beautiful Southern plantation type -- with the ceremony outside, gnats and all...if you're not from South Ga, gnats are little bugs that fly around your head, and you try to swat at them the whole time you're outside. Fortunately, the bridal couple had the cutest fans made with their and the wedding party's information on them. And the barbecue, potatoes, slaw and extras made a marvelous supper...

All is well in the Southern state.....
