“Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t
own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep
it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it
you can never get it back.”

 How to Make a Topsy Turvy Cake–very interesting 🙂

The Recipe Box

 Parmesan Chicken

serves 8

 6 garlic cloves, minced

6 T. olive oil

2 T. butter

3 lbs. chicken pieces (legs and wings are our favorites)

 In a bowl combine bread crumbs and cheese; mix well.  Coat chicken pieces with garlic mixture and then coat with bread mixture. Place in an ungreased baking pan.  Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear.

Cute Quotes

from the family journal:


Leah was giving Isaiah a big shell (that was inside a plastic sack), and he said, “I want the shelf to stay in the snack, cause I want to save it.”


Cassia was teasing Isaiah and told him dogs go “meow” and cats go “woof woof!” He said, “and people go, hey, you look good.”  I think he watched Fireproof a few times too many 🙂


Isaiah wanted Susannah to trace him a “peengun” (penguin).

Susannah: “No, you can do it.”

Isaiah: “No I can’t, I’ll keep getting it wrong!”

Susannah: “I might too!”

Isaiah: “Nuh huh! You can’t cause you’re old!”

Umm…is that supposed to be a mean remark, or a complement meaning I never mess up? 😉

    Wow I am REALLY impressed by those bread sculptures. The first time I made homemade bread it turned out looking like a mushroom. Not on purpose 🙂 Do you have any idea on how they get the bread to look like that?

      I have no idea. That would be something if you set it on the dinner table 😀

    WOW WOW WOW to the topsy turvy cake and the bread sculptures! Amazing!

    The photo of you all out east I think is my favorite photo of you I have ever seen. It is so neat!

    I am sitting here right now making my grocery list while catching up on blog reading. I was trying to think of a chicken dish to make so praise the Lord!- you posted the parmesan chicken recipe! Bless you! I’m making it this week. You ladies are always cooking up something delicious over there. If I lived with you, I’d surely weigh double what I do now!

    I hope you all have a lovely week!

    Jessica – Thank you for the DARLING little notes! SO CUTE! I love teeny tiny little things! (((HUGS))) my friend!

    Wow, that topsy turvy cake is amazing! It would be fun to try someday, but I think that I will have to wait till my girls are old enough to do it.
