My son wants a tea party????

Well, sort of. He gets inspired by things he sees on Nick Jr. He decided he wanted a tea party "with no rules!" So he began searching the pantry, the fridge, & who knows what else. He decided to have guacamole & chips, strawberries, lasagna, & drinks. He chose 7-up & the mug to drink from, I chose iced tea. Then we agreed that we should use all Aunt Re's pottery. My twin is an amazing ceramic artist, and once I grabbed my tea cup, I knew I had to have red wine instead of iced tea. We had quite an evening, full of food, laughter, & silly pictures. Now I am sold. Boys CAN have tea parties!

BTW: Marie, aka aunt Re, is going to have a great pottery sale July 21st in Bremerton, Washington. If you are anywhere in the pacific northwest that weekend, be sure to stop by her house for a piece from a successful & well know artist. She has been in galleries around the world, & published several times! Check out her work! Just click here & here.

What's on the Grill?

Texas is known for lots of things, but bar b-q is one of the best! This year we celebrated the 4th of July the weekend before. We went to the lake house in New Braunfels, on Lake McQueeny. Thom Reeder was the cook. He did onions, chicken & sausage, Chad Head did the brisket, but the big treat was ONIONS! No need for a recipe if you follow the pictures: just cut slices, stuff with gutted jalepenos, top with chicken rub spice & bar b-q sauce. Then wrap in foil & throw on the grill! YUM!

 ...and of course we had to do fireworks! Have you ever noticed how much LOVE is in the world? Just take a look around and you will see it everywhere, even in the fireworks! ...well some of the fireworks ;)
