One of my favorites

I came across this pic of Ella while I was scanning and remember loving it! How cute is the shadow?!? Like something out of Whoville...

She is about 8 months in this picture!

Looking Back..

Ella's 6th birthday is next week! I can't believe it! I thought it would be fun to share some old pictures with you (because I'm scanning them in slowly....) throughout this week and next to celebrate her birthday. All of these are from her 1st year....

A Plug

Okay so it's no secret that I love to cook. I'm always on the lookout for that great new recipe as well as any great new tools that may come my way. Case in point, I LOVE Pampered Chef. In fact, I think that may even be an understatement. I was just at a party a few weeks ago and saw it. As soon as I turned the page it jumped out at me. Look at it in all it's beauty.....
And then look what it does to ground beef:

With no splatters! Or meat all over the stove top! Nice little pieces all evenly browned in their wonderfulness... and all for the unbeatable price of: (ready for this??): $9.50! What is it called? It's the Mix 'N Chop. Run, do not walk, to your nearest friend having that show!
