Some days, being a stay at home mom is just pure joy.

Really, it's the simple things:

Like today, I stayed in this all.day.long.


The boys and I drove out to the church to watch the big diggers.
They were "diggin' a big 'ol hole for the church's poop!"
(The scene as described by McClain.)
Someone had given him all the dirty little details!


Next we made treats for the Drake Bible Study kids.
Sometimes my treats look like I have too much time on my hands...
Who doesn't like to sort their Reese's Pieces and color coordinate the rows?!?

Blonde Brownies

2/3 c. butter (softened)
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 c. chocolate chips (or Reese's Pieces when you're in the mood for fall!)

Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Add rest of ingredients and mix well. Spread into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

*This time I lined the pan with parchment paper so I could easily lift the bars out and cut them with my big pizza*rocker*cutter*thingy*ma*jiggy.

Voila!

Who wouldn't enjoy watching these two little nakies slurp up platefuls of spaghetti?
Mmm.mmm.good!

Wouldn't trade this life for the world!
