P52 Week 17-Green (366-113-118)

A little late than never, right...Green, huh?  Got lot's of it in my house...Olive drab, that is...We just finished a day with about 15 boys at our home for the boy's club with our home school group...It was my husband's turn to lead these boys in prayer, do a devotion, and then something manly...He taught them how to start a fire with a magnesium fire starter and some dryer lint...They had a blast!! 
Such a boy thing...Then, all 15 animals went into the pool...Ha! Just kidding...They are sweet, God fearing, loving boys, that are striving to reflect our LORD JESUS...How precious is that? 
So, these pictures below are just of my boys exhausted from the day...I was busy inside with Trinity and talking with my BFF, so I didn't get a chance to take any pictures...My boy Mikey has awesome green eyes, but you can't see how beautiful they are in this shot... 
Go Green!!

Edit Me-2012 Week 17




 
Great shot of flowers I might say...Wish I took it myself, BUT, I didn't...These beautiful flowers were taken by "Butterflies in Time Photography"  Not much needed to edit, but still fun!


Here is my edit...I didn't crop it as I usually do...It didn't need to be...I did use my saturation and temperature tool...I also used my cross process tool and my dusk tool...I thought it looked really cool...The white flowers were a bit yellowish, so I actually used my teeth whitening tool and fade button to make the flowers more white...
Then of course I framed it...

P52-Week 16 Things that Grow (366-108)

Whew...They sure do...My boys that is...I never could comprehend, before I had kids, when people would say "they grow so fast"...I remember asking my pastor's wife one time, what her favorite age was for her kids...She told me each year got better and better...I was struggling at the time when I asked her that question...I was an inexperienced mom AND a new Christian...I was overwhelmed when my boys were 3 & 2...I remember thinking how hard it was for me...Although I loved them so much, I was to selfish to see what a blessing they really were and are!! I kick myself for being so selfish and not embracing the journey with a happy heart...The LORD has shown me many things, and has "grown" me since the day I met HIM, 6 years ago...I try to embrace every moment with my sweet, loving, God fearing boys...They truly love the LORD and I look forward to seeing how they "grow" in their relationship with JESUS....Life is great!!

California Zucchini Bake

1lb. Lean Ground Beef
3 Medium Zucchini, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Green onions, sliced with tops
2 tsp. Salt
1/4 Garlic Powder
2 tsp. Chili Powder
1 can Green Chilis, chopped (7 oz.)
3 cups Rice, cooked
2 cups Sour Cream
2 cups Monterey Jack Cheese, grated 
1 large tomato, sliced
Salt & Pepper

Saute beef, zucchini, onions and seasonings in a lightly greased skillet until meat is no longer pink and veggies are tender & crisp, stirring frequently.  Sometimes I will brown the meat half way so that my veggies stay crisp...Add green chiles, rice, sour cream, and a cup of cheese...Turn into a shallow 2-quart casserole...
Arrange tomato slices on top...Season with salt & pepper...Top with remaining cheese...Bake @ 350 for 20-25 min...
(My husband like everything spicy so I added Jalapenos to one side)

I made this tonight...YUM!  I'm not a cook, but I follow directions well...If you make it, let me know if you like it...My mother in law made it all the time for my husband and he loves it...ENJOY!

P52 Week 14-Sacrifice (366-106)

I can't believe I forgot my P52 this week...Wayyy to busy...Anyway, again there were so many things I could have posted for this challenge...The first one I thought of is of course my LORD, but I didn't have any pictures of what I wanted...The next thing that popped in my mind, is my little Lovely!!! She is every bit perfect for this weeks challenge, I love every minute of the sacrifice, and I wouldn't trade one day away from her!

366: 94-105

Wow...Wow...Wow...I'm SO behind, but today is a good day...Can you believe everything is picked up, washed, put away, cleaned, scrubbed, and tidy in my home?  Well, not everything, but enough for me to kick back today and play with my camera and blog!!! Here are some very random pictures I took over the past few weeks...

I love the collage with my sweet friend Lei...We love sushi and she loves to make fancy cupcakes...It's now sort of our "tradition" along with my boys to have sushi and fancy cupcake night...So far we have done it twice...My boys really enjoy it, and I enjoy watching Lei have patience with them measuring out the ingredients...I want to scream half the time for them to hurry up, but she just waits and waits...I love her!!

Here is my amazing husband always cracking my boys up...This time he was cracking my boy Matt up...The boys laugh so hard because their dad is the biggest, most fun loving dad I know personally...I crack up watching them crack up...The funny thing is, half the time it's not that funny, but it's funny...Ha!

 
Some flowers..................
