• Mom’s Day Scenes

    May 13, 2013DishinandDishes

    Yesterday was Mother’s Day. My Mom and Dad came down to visit from Michigan for Kayla’s graduation. Can we all pause and revel on the words “Kayla’s graduation”? Two kids graduated and one just finished his freshman year.  We are on a roll. Now if the world of employment will be equally as kind. More…

    It started out quite innocently. Just two silly college girls who came home for the weekend and were looking for something to do. And then this happened. I’m not sure what was spoken, but I’m sure it was pure evil and it prompted this. Oh and then, it was war! The war-dance of the trampoline.  End…

    November 16, 2009DishinandDishes

    My oldest daughter Tori was in the Miss Southwestern Pageant at her college for the 2nd year in a row. I am not a pageant mom. I get nervous.  I get sick to my stomach.  And I get mad at the point value system they use.  I think when my daughter answers a question intelligently, that…

    October 20, 2009DishinandDishes

    By Katie So, I’ve been silently absent from the blog for several days this week and not done a bit of cooking.   It’s been glorious. You see, we spent our fall break last week on a youth retreat with 130 screaming kids at Sky Ranch near Miami, Oklahoma. We slept in bunk beds. We…
