Whew…..what a weekend!

Our weekend started with some fun Red Friday activities.

Besides KC Wolf, Chiefs Cheerleaders and Len Dawson, we also saw Clark Hunt but I was not fast enough to get a picture of anything but the back of his head.

After dinner with Molly, we watched a documentary that she wanted to see called Food, Inc.  She had seen a clip of it in one of her nutrition classes and wanted to see the entire movie.  In summary, it was about corporate farms.  I have never been a big meat eater but I am pretty sure this just sealed the vegetarian deal for me.

Saturday morning was a very sad time as we attended the funeral of Dylan’s grandmother in Richmond, Mo.  Shirley was a teacher for thirty years, a talented quilter and one of the nicest people you could ever meet.   I am so glad I had the privilege of getting to know Shirley.  She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

On Saturday afternoon I helped Molly make treats for a bake sale for her SDA organization at school.  We tried a few new recipes and I am really glad we packed them up right away otherwise I think they would have been eaten very quickly.  We made Simply Sinful Cinnamon  Muffins by the King Arthur Flour Company.

We also made Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Krispie Treats.  I am pretty sure I gained about 5 pounds just making these.  They looked SOOOOO good.

This recipe is from the blog Picky Palate that I read daily,  click here for the details.

In the early evening on Saturday we traveled to Excelsior Springs for our great nephew’s third birthday party.    It was an outdoor camping theme complete with a camp fire, camo plates, camo napkins, camo cupcakes and even camo cake pops.  Here is the birthday boy, Reid in his camo shorts.

And this is my pyro sister stoking the fire…..her favorite thing to do!

Now I need a weekend to rest up…….
