I have a secret.....

As most of you know
I am not one to organize things.

After a good friend cleaned out her storage locker because she moved out of state.

I had to do this...
Clean out my food storage closet.

This is the end result!
So if I haven't returned calls or answer the phone lately I have been busy.....But after it is all done. I really like how it turned out and now I am ready to stock my closet full.

First day of school

Grant is going to 7Th grade this year!
Mathew is in 3rd grade and Ella is in Kindergarten!

Here is all the kids that got up early.....We are talkin 6:25 Am to make sure they were early!
I was sad to see them go....But was happy for the quiet in the house. They are loving there new teachers and everyone is settling into a route.

Well after searching for new recipes for Snickerdoodles....I think I have found it. I did have to add a few things to it! But overall I give it 4****s!

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1tsp. vanilla

Mix butter, sugar and eggs. Add remaining ingredients. Roll into balls the size of walnuts. Roll in a mixture of 2 tbsp. sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes in 400 degree oven.
