{ June and Donna }

Well.....here we are as June Cleaver and Donna Reed at scrap camp! We looked great!!! And we had a great time! We were all decked out in our 50's dresses, aprons, high heels, pearls, curly hair, floral hats, gloves and ........don't forget the broom, dustpan, vacuum, dusters, iron, ironing board and Jello molds! I have to say we came up with some really great 50's jello recipes!!! All of them were real recipes we found online and in my family cookbook. I would like to tell you about a few of them!

Lime jello with pimentos and celery
Orange jello with carrots, raisins and celery
Lemon Jello with green beans and cottage cheese
Lemon Jello with spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, Red beans, garbanzo beans, celery and pepper
Lime jello with onion juice
Lemon Jello with cream of asparagus soup, celery, peppers, nuts, onion and cream cheese
Lime Jello with mayo, cottage cheese, cucumbers and onion
Lemon Jello with cabbage, celery and green pepper

WOW! am I glad I did not have to eat JELLO in the 50's







mmmmmmmmm................anyone want the recipe????

{ APPLE FEST }

OK.......apple fest was two weeks ago and I'm just now posting pictures! Better late than never.

It turns out that if it's 20 degrees outside and there's a Griz homecoming game the same day as apple fest........then, apple fest bombs! Better luck next time! RIGHT! On the bright side, we had the cutest booth in all of apple fest land. BUT, where were the customers? They all stayed at home to watch the Griz game in their warm houses!!! The only people who made any money on this very fine, very cold day were the ones selling hats, mittens and hot chocolate!

Renee and I tried really hard to stay warm. We sat bundled up in three layers of clothing, in our double camp chair, in our sleeping bags in front of a propane heater (thank you dad!) most of the day, and we were still chilly! Everyone was walking by our booth laughing at us all bundled up! People were asking if they could take our picture and threatening to send the newspaper down to photograph us!!! I'm not sure why we were so funny.....I guess WE should have taken a picture so we could see us! Anyway........I told Renee I couldn't understand why everyone was laughing at us when the lady in the booth across from us was selling adult bibs, really???? adult bibs and we were funny???!!!

{ mayce belle }

Our Mayce belle is soooo funny. Addy is funny too, but Mayce has this ability to make everyone around her smile and laugh! I thought I would share this funny story about Mayce with you....... the other day Mayce and I were making cookies and watching Rachel Ray. Rachel Ray's guest was Cindy Crawford. When Cindy Crawford came out from behind the set, Mayce said...."mommy is that you???" (I think it's the moles) First, I laughed, then I cried, then I told her she was favorite person ever and I loved her so much!!! I said, no honey that's not mommy, but thank you so much for the compliment!!! Mayce said mom, what's a compliment? I explained it was when you said something to a person that was really nice. She has now been obsessed with giving people compliments! Soooooo........ two days later, she runs up to me and gives me a big hug and says, "I love you so much my BIG momma! Your my HUGE momma!!!"
OK Baby I love you too I said, but that's not a compliment!!!
