I was surprised but they ate the double layer cake in less than 12 hours! SCORE!! I got this recipe from ALLrecipes.com Simple White Cake You will need: 1 cup white sugar 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 1/2 cup butter 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder 2 eggs 1/2 cup milk 2 tsp vanilla extract Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, ass to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch. How super easy was this to make?

This is my brother's blog about his chicken farm. I'm really enjoying reading and seeing his photo's of his animals and such. When I get to his house I try to walk down to his farm area to see all of his animal. They have accomplished so much in what seems like a short time to me. I forget that we were raised on farms.. Guess that part of my past I just don't want to remember. One memory I have is going to church with my cousin Brenda the youth director Keith Flannigan was also a veterinarian. I remember leaving church with him and several other youths and going out to Grandpa BR's to help birth calves. That is a good memory. Both of my grandpa's had farms and raised cattle and hay and such. So I guess I really am a farm girl and just didn't want to admit it. Hell all this time I thought I was a princess...At least Mr. C tells me I am his princess.

I so love the cooler weather. I so need and want to put out some fall decorations. all I have to do is walk out to the shop and find the fall decoration tubs and get busy. I was off Monday and Tuesday and didn't even think about being productive. Then last night I was looking at some blogs where they were decorating for fall. So that got my mind racing and all the neat possibilities I could do with what I already have plus if I only bought a few new things then I could have a AWESOME fall centerpiece. Brody asked me last night if the fall air freshener was the only decoration I had. you know the one I am talking about..the .99 cent one that twist up and use in bathrooms or etc.. Yes it's the only thing I have out right now is what I told him. I didn't realize he paid attention to me decorating the house. I usually only do Halloween, fall and Christmas. I made Oven Baked Taco's Monday night. They were super good and super easy. I got the recipe off of facebook. Although I added my own twist to it. It is something I will make again!

Today Aaron and I went to Ardmore Oklahoma for The Grigsby Annual Family Reunion. We get there just in time to eat lunch with everyone. Grandma Diane didn't make it in and that was disappointing to me and Aaron. My brother in law Eddie showed up with his children Aiden and Mallory right after we got there. I guess I should say Ex brother in law since my husband Mark passed away. Mr. C. doesn't really like me to attend Grigsby functions but that is part of my son's heritage. I want them to know these relatives and embrace them as family should. I tend to visit with the ones I know. I keep saying next year I will go around and talk. Then I get to Aunt Mary's and go into a shy person. I have got to get over that and be the confident person I can be. When Mark was alive we just didn't visit or be around these family members very much. So now I have to do this on my own for my sons. If you noticed Blake and Trevor didn't attend. Blake had to work as he normally has to on this weekend. Trevor was with his cousin Alison having a good time at a event at Redbud Park here in Marlow Oklahoma. Missed both of my boys very much. Many thanks to Aaron going with me!

Hello! I just wanted to stop in and tell everyone hello and thanks for following me! I always think I will write something funny and wise and yet it never seems to come out like I have wrote it in my head. I love to read blogs that seamlessly flow with character and descriptions. I so hope that one of these days I learn how to be a better blogger.

At the fair my brother signed him snd I up for a advanced heart scan. He wants it because both of our parents died from heart issues. So we drove to Oklahoma City to take test. Didn't realize it was like a time share thing where they try to upsell you on a total body scanfor wsy more money...as in $6900.00 over a course of several years. We said no thanks. After 45 minute presentation we finally got the heart scan. Should know results in 7 days. Yes I am scared of knowing but hopefully it will help me be motivated to get in better health.
