In this Post: Homemade salad dressing, crock pot boiled peanuts, & back to school pictures.
Hello dear ones! I’ve got Michael’s back to school pictures to share. Note to family: I’m in the process of mailing them to you. These were fairly simple to bring together: apple, books, and a globe voila! Then I uploaded them to Walmart and had wallet prints waiting for me the next day. This is our first year of doing official school pictures. I also want to make yearbooks. It’s on my to do list.
This isn’t included but I thought it was a cute shot….my little ninja.
It’s been kind of quiet on the weekends since we got back from Disney. All of us recover from the long school week.
Here’s Tessa, ready to party.
Chester caught in the act. I think all he’s managed to do is drink the fish’s water.
We found out that my best buddy Hannah is having a girl! It was Chris’ idea to throw in the Orangutan :).
Hannah’s daughter, Olivia, enjoying her Mom’s chocolate pie. Hannah’s bunch came over for dinner and games.
The kiddos set up a tea picnic in Michael’s room.
We always have a blast with our buddies. Ignore my husband’s psychotic stare lol.
Mom and I had a girl’s day out. Here she is trying to figure out the massage chair :).
I got Fall colors on my toes. It looks better in person.
Lastly, here are a few recipes :).
- Thousand Island Dressing
I didn’t have relish or Tabasco sauce. I added a bit of Worcestershire sauce.
- Ranch Dressing
I didn’t have dill weed or chives. I think I substituted the sour cream with buttermilk too. It still turned out tasty and healthier than the store bought stuff.
- Crock pot boiled peanuts
This was super easy and yummy!
How about you, dear ones? Do you take school pictures each year? Fellow homeschoolers do you take them on your own or go professional? What are your back to school traditions? Have any salad dressing recipes? I’d love to hear from you!
God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
