Easy As Pie!

Literally, this is that easy!! Just open 2 things, dump 'em in and bake it.
Get 2 cans of your favorite pie filling! You choose: cherry, peach, blueberry, strawberry, or apple (David's fav)! They all sound good to me! Next, get 2 boxes of the Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix. You'll also need a couple of pats of butter.
  • 2 cans (your fav) Pie Filling
  • 2 boxes Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix
  • a few pats of butter
1. Dump your pie filling into a deep baking dish.
2. Pour dry cake mix right out of the box on top of pie filling.
3. Put a couple of pats of butter on top - spread out evenly.
By the way, don't cover with butter, it will be too rich. (tried that).
4. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes - until top is golden!
Enjoy the crunchy, crusty top with the warm fruit tucked inside! Top with Cool Whip or ICE CREAM!! I like to call this "too easy pie", it's too easy not to try!

A day with Owen!

One day last week I spent the day in Savannah with Gini & Owen! He is such a chunk and I just had to post these pics & video clip of him eating a pickle! Warning: This video contains scenes that may cause some serious "Cute Overload!"

River Boat Ride!

We live very close to the Ogeechee River and we spend a lot of time playing on it! The river has been very full this year and so our "usual" sandbar is still under water. So, we've spent a few weekends just riding in the boat! This past Saturday we went a looong ways!! What fun we had!

What a Cottonmouth (water moccasin) we saw!!  This was a big ol' boy!  Sorry I didn't get a better angle so you could see his head better, but after circling him 2 times he was getting agitated so I just said "the hell with that!"  And no, I didn't have my zoom on, I was actually this close! --- Okay, so my arms were extended as far as possible! ▼

This dragonfly really liked our styrofoam cooler and he traveled along with us for about 30 minutes, finally another dragonfly came along and they took off together.  I wonder if they have a "home" or if they just keep wandering ... ▼

Along the way we were so lucky to find this sandbar!!   We spent some time checking it out!  We saw some really big deer tracks, lots of racoon tracks.  You could see where they walked into the shallow water, probably to wash their food before they eat it.  ▼

We even saw some little baby tadpoles in the edge of the water!! ▼

My biddies are all grown up!

Many of you may remember I posted photos of my new 3 little baby biddies! I was so excited to watch them grow and to eventually get some EGGS!! Well, guess what? Turns out I have 3 roosters!! I've got to change their names from Buttercup, Daisy & Fern to something a little more manly! They are so funny to watch run around & chase bugs! As they started learning to crow it sounded so weak & pitiful, but they tried so hard. They are getting better at it these days as you can hear in the short video below. They follow me EVERYWHERE! I told David I was probably the only girl in the county that "walks" her chickens, AND the cat, all at the same time - in harmony!! Kitty also follows every move I make so he wasn't about to be left out!!

Playful Kitty!

I was looking for Cornbread and finally found him napping on top of our makeshift temporary chicken coop! David plans to build us a "chickaminium" very soon! Kitty was feeling very playful and tried to catch the string on my camera!! He's such a ham! We only had to explain to him 1 time in the very beginning when we got the chickens that he was not to hunt them. And he has been such a good boy! I don't even worry about it!

Tiffany Doodles Challenge

Here is the card I made for our first ever Tiffany Doodles Card challenge! The challenges will be every 7th of the month and last through the end of the month!! You have 4 chances to win up to 7 Digis from Tiffany Doodles!! Yeah!

I had so much fun making this cute little card for our first challenge! Here are a few details!

  • Bluebird in Grass Digi Stamp -
  • Green Paper at the bottom - Basic Grey, Lime Ricky
  • Dark Blue paper - Coordinations
  • Turquoise card - Coordinations
  • GinaK 80# paper - for printing the digi image
  • White Ribbon - Hobby Lobby (colored with copics V15 & V06)
  • Flower punch - Martha Stewart, Hydrangea
  • Sentiment - Paper Studio
  • Nestabilities Die Cut
  • Silver dots - Mark Richards

On the digi stamp I erased (in photoshop) the grass that surrounded the bluebird, then I placed the black and white stamp image on top of a photograph of a field of little purple flowers. I then printed it from Photoshop onto Gina K paper and die cut the whole image.  Personally, I use photoshop for all things "digi", but this technique (of placing a digi stamp on top of a photo) can also be achieved in Word.  (Tutorial coming in just a couple of days).

The challenge this month is a sketch challenge.  Jenyfur at Torn Paper was so generous to make this awesome sketch just for us!! Thank you Jenyfur!!
Head over to Tiffany Doodles right now to join in the challenge!
