This afternoon Louis Dean cleared the ice off the car and we loaded up! We broke OUT of the house!
Now I don't drive on ice. Like AT ALL! Today, however, I acted like an adult and drove us to Quadville. It took twice as long as usual since I didn't go over 45 mph at the MOST! The roads were in pretty good shape if you stayed in the tracks made by the morning commuters. There were a few patches of rough cobblestone ice - which scared me but I made it! Once we got over here in the area we eased into the Wal-Mart parking lot. We shopped for some groceries and all those pillows I need for the gifts I am making. Lots of shelves were bare or scarcely stocked. You can tell the trucks have not been able to make their rounds.
Amber bought a couple of play cell phones for the quads and they were adorable today playing with them!
She bought two so they had to share.......which is a good thing to learn!
They do very well with giving things to each other!
Already looking like teenagers!
See what I mean?
Of course they see US with OUR cell phones all the time.
They knew just what to do!
No telling what technology will be like when they really ARE teenagers!
Kailey stayed pretty close to Granddad all afternoon and evening!
The girls have so much fun with each other!
There's just nothing like hearing a child's laughter!
I tried out one of the recipes I have seen on Facebook recently.
I love cooking in Amber's kitchen!!
It turned out to be delicious!
1 stick melted butter
1 packet Ranch Dressing Mix
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 T crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Box Ritz Crackers
Toss a box of Ritz crackers with all 5 ingredients. Bake in 300* oven for 15 minutes.
You could use oyster crackers too.
Smells as yummy as they taste!
Amber got a break from cooking tonight!
I fixed an old fashioned supper and I was generous with the bacon grease - perfect for a winter's night!
Since we got OUT of the house we decided to make the drive worth our while so we're spending the night.
The house is quiet with three of the four babies asleep in bed. Only Kailey finds herself not yet ready to call it a night. I think she is teething again. Granddad is rocking her here in the living room. I think as soon as she decides to call it a night - so will we!
