A random collection of things

To start with I shall write the chorus from a beautiful song entitled; All good things(a Pooh perspective) from my (older) sister's Pooh tape :)  :)
                                                                                                                                                                       I'll see the good things in everything
                         around me
                        The happiness and beauty of it all
                        So many good things if everyone
                        Could find some
                        Look and try to see within your heart
                       All good things
                                                 Chocolate Chip Bars
                                                 2 cups brown sugar
                                                 2 cups flour
                                                 1 stick butter
                                                 1 egg
                                                 1 tsp. salt
                                                 1 tsp. soda
                                                 1 tsp. vanilla
                                                 1 cup milk
          Mix together first 3 ingredients. Reserve 3/4 cup for later. Add the rest of the  ingredients to the remaining crumb mixture. beat well. Put in greased jelly-roll pan. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup crumbs & mini chocolate chips.
Bake at 350* for 20-25 min.  
                          (certain ladies ~ahem~cannot quit eating these :)
     And because I don't have a picture of the bars, I shall post a picture of some chocolate that some very wonderful cousins gave to us! :)

Pictures & such from my week

And so... we see that I did not update last week so from that I hope to excuse myself.  About my time in OH...
  I got there on Fri. (July 30) & came home yesterday, I was there a total of nine days. The last weekend the rest of my sisters were there too, it was such fun to have all five of us together like that! Now for pictures:

      Aubrey & Kyler eating supper at their little table in the living room

                          Rhoda & Aubrey in their matching dresses

                                  Mr. Kyler with a dirty mouth :)                                                                                                                     

           Kyler standing on the corn hole game looking very dejected

                                                        All of us sisters

                                The beautiful Dorcas taking pictures:)

                         Don't they look like the cutest little couple?:)

                                 Aubrey is busy at her desk

                                       Don't you love that adoring look?

                                            Dry bread... how yummy!

Saturday we went out on the lake, perhaps Kyler is watching all of us in the water,(he was scared to go in)

                                                  Aubrey & her mommy

    One last picture of us all (except Wes, he was taking the picture) 
Quotables from the week:
       One night Wes was trying to explain to Aubrey the difference between a "him" & a "she", when he was finished explaining Aubrey very seriously asked if Kyler was a 'himshe'.
 One night last week Wes decided to give himself a buzz, the next night at supper we were talking about it & Aubrey said; was Daddy with the bee's?
 She also said; I have the ticcups! (hiccups)

 Have a wonderful day!
