Today in the car Rocco was singing a song that Dallon had prompted.. It went like this.. Roman & Raven sittin in the bacon chair, first come kissin, this is where Rocco erupted in to laughter.. We all know that's not how it goes but that's what he heard Dallon singing.
I am fully convinced that the age three is my absolute favorite age. Each age is special but there is something about the age three, when they can now communicate in their innocent, precious way. . This is usually the time when I have another baby but we are now complete. I will soak these boys up and enjoy them as gifts on loan from God. I know they will grow faster than I can imagine...

Rock-N-Roll was SOOO happy!
Roman took fire in his fighter jet.
Look at that smile! I like this pic because it captured two of my babies.
My boys were rocking out together on the stage.
I think this is my favorite of all the fair pictures! Speaks for itself.. At the end Rocco looked up and yelled, "That was fun!" I knew he'd love it!!
My boys and their guns..
Roman is such a great big brother! Rocco got up smiling.
Gotta love that Dal!
Roman was too big for these so I had him at the big bumper boats when Nicky caught this great shot.
And this one..
Rocco & Daddy
And we'll finish off with Roman in the ferris wheel. He rode with two girls... heehee
On our way home we stopped by the Redbox and picked up this fantastic family movie!
Let's recap the week.. Everything was great this week. Here are some before & after pics of the new homemade croutons I tried. They turned out great! Also, doesn't that chicken look delish?! Then finally the end result. And yes, those are blue cheese crumbles!! MMmmmmmmmm
Saturday's Cracker Barrel breakfast w/the girls was fun & yummy. We had a good time at the Southern Women's show but were surprisingly done by 1pm so we headed home. Then Nicky & I took the boys to the fair. (Post to come.) SOOooo we had fair food for dinner. YUM-E
Sunday: Lunch, Leftovers (didn't get the chili ready & we needed to eat up some leftovers) Dinner, Grilled hotdogs
Monday: No cooking..
Tuesday: Cincinnati Chili (didn't get to this one yet and it's the perfect weather for it!!) Serve your favorite chili on pasta, then topped with shredded or cubed cheese & chopped onions
Wednesday: Opting out of the Chicken Pot Pie @ church tonight because I was the only one that liked it last time.. So, I think I'll do breakfast for dinner w/the boys! Since it will just be the three boys & I we won't make a big one, maybe even cereal or strudels.. ??That's TWO nights without cooking?? Shhh..don't tell anyone..
Thursday: Creamy Poppyseed Chicken over rice served w/salad
Friday: It's been too long!!! Crock Pot Lasagna Makes you smile doesn't it? I know, me too.
Saturday: Wings-N-Things @ Jon & Jenn's

Doesn't that look good?! Let me know if any of you try it!!
Sunday: Nick's Spaghetti for lunch (I had leftover chicken enchiladas)
For dinner we're having grilled cheese again! Why? Because we love them & their quick-n-easy for a hectic Sunday night.
Monday: I usually don't 'cook' on Mondays because Nick's at school. But I overbought english muffins and don't want them to go bad. So we're making individual pizzas in the toaster oven tonight!! Th boys will be thrilled because they get to make their own. If you've never done this with your kids, it's easy & fun. Usually a big hit! These are the toppings we will be using on our Thomas 100 calorie English Muffins: Pizza sauce, Shredded Mozarella Cheese, & Sliced Pepperoni
I'll try to remember to take pics..
Tuesday: Grilled Chicken Salad w/all the fixings! I'll marinade 5 chicken breasts in Italian dressing, grill them then serve on Italian salad mix w/cheese, raisins, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers & homemade croutons, which I will make in my toaster oven, using leftover hamburger buns.
Wednesday: Undecided...Supposed to eat baked spaghetti at church but I refuse to live last Wednesday's experience (with my 3 children) over again. I really don't blame any of you for not wanting to sit with us. (Nick's at school so I have the boys on my own.)
Thursday: Ground Beed Tacos! This is one of our favorites!! Nick likes these double deckers:
Friday: Grilled Ham Slice, Mac-n-cheese, green beans, pears w/dollop of mayo shredded sharp cheddar & cherry on top!
Saturday: Leftovers because this is Girls Day Out!! I'll be meeting local friends at Cracker Barrel for breakfast then we'll be spending the day at The Southern Women's Show. I can't wait!!!
Sunday: I'm being optimistic about the weather..... Cincinnati Chili w/saladIf you have never had Cincinnati Chili you are missing out! What makes chili "Cincinnati style" is serving it on pasta, topped with cheese & raw onions. YUMMY! I don't have my chili recipe online so I provided this similar one I found, click on the Chili hyperlink. I'll be trying it too. If it's no good I'll post my ole' faithful chili recipe. This is a picture I found online but I usually use shells or ziti.

Kabobs are always great! We did teriyaki steak & chicken. **TIP** If you enjoy them buy some metal skewers so you can reuse over & over. If you opt for the wooden kind soak them in water to avoid burning. I cook all meat on skewers together & all veggies or fruit on skewers together since the cooking times vary from meat to veggies/fruit. Mushrooms are YUMMY grilled on skewers! We use canned potatoes since they're cooked already. This is such a healthy meal!!
Breakfast was great!! I think we'll be revisiting very soon!!! Probably using our waffle maker next time!
Instead of pizza Nick picked up sanwiches from Dominos, they were yummy! My 3 sons & I wound up enjoying a pizza at Sam's Saturday. If you haven't discovered their food area, it's a great place to eat lunch! The hotdogs are good too! They have a great berry sundae, if you have room.
My childcare fell through for Lindsey & Paul's wedding so Nick had to go alone. I spent the day with my boys, running some errands. Nick & Mom cooked Saturday night, Steak & grilled veggies! YUMMY!!! Mom bought a special platter to grill small things on the grill. Everything was delicious!!
