Don't try this at home! (Weekend Adventures part 3)

So, if you have children old enough to watch iCarly, you know who Spencer is and what his specialty food is, right? For weeks my girls had been asking me to make something particular for dinner. Look at "Sunday's" meal below.
 Spaghetti-Tacos (yes, you read that right-Gross, with a capital G). So, I finally gave in on Sunday evening. I made a big bowl of spaghetti and fried up some taco shells.
 Doesn't that look good? (Um, not really my cup of tea)
 But Katelyn liked it...
And Emily liked it...
But Daniel and I stuck with plain old spaghetti.
Then my sweet girl even did the dishes (don't you just love her outfit?)

Here is a peek at our other adventure this weekend-exploring a friend's land in Clarks Valley.
 Can you see how the rock side sheered off? Very cool
 An unhappy little guy - his feet were wet :(
 But, a bubble bath makes it aaaalllllllll better!

In Cupcake Heaven (Weekend Adventures part 1)

Here is how I started my weekend - I stayed up way too late creating some of my best cupcakes ever!

 Coconut cupcake frosted with coconut buttercream and topped with toasted coconut flakes. (Can you tell I love coconut?) This is simply the best cupcake I have ever made. YUM-O!

Then...because I wasn't satisfied with one cupcake at 11:30 pm, I made a chocolate latte cupcake frosted with an espresso buttercream and topped with chocolate (wish I would have had chocolate espresso beans). This too was pretty darn good. Next: I have been thinking of making a Smores inspired cupcake and then something with lemon for sure. I also want to make chocolate covered bacon. I have heard it is very tasty. Anyone ever tried chocolate covered bacon?

Ok, so we had a super adventurous weekend around here!
On Friday afternoon, Matt took the kids to the snow.
On the way home, here is what they saw-Amazing!!!
Doesn't that look like the ocean?

For Realz? I won?

I feel so blessed to be the winner of a Silhouette! I can't believe it! I never win things.
Thank you to Jeannette over at life rearranged 
Head on over to her blog
and read about why she blogs.
Then read about the 5 Dollar Challenge
and challenge yourself!!!
I just did. Really, what's $10 a month? 
I know I can skip a latte, a lunch out with a friend, or an impulse buy at the grocery store.
What about you?
2 Corinthians 8:9-12 says in part:
9 You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich... 11 ... Give in proportion to what you have. 12 Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have.
(For the whole chapter in context go here)
I want to "prioritize with a purpose" this year and this is a great first step.
Blessings to each of you for a
purposeful "twenty eleven."

Polar Bear Swim

My children are crazy!

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2011.
Instead of "Toasting" we were "Roasting"
...Marshmallows that is... 
for smores in our fire pit!
Happy New Year!!!

Did you notice the weeds in the background of the fire pit? Too funny! If not, here is another shot.

Tomorrow I will post video of the Peters' Polar Bear Plunge!!! Stay tuned...
