So two of my boys are doing Karate. They love it so very much. So Ethan was very surprised to go to karate this week and find out he was black belt of the week. Which means he gets to stand up with the teacher and act like a second teacher. He loved it so very much. He wants to do it everytime he goes to Karate.

A Day At Lowe's

So my boys and daddy went to a Lowe's workshop for kids. They made little race cars and had so much fun. They could have done this all day long. They got little aprons to where and to take home and a pair of goggles. I guess they get a badge every time they go in and Tucker looked at me and said I had to sew it on...HELP...

Tucker the Red Nosed Reindeer

I can not believe it has been a whole month since I last posted where does the time go? I have either been sicker than a dog or busy selling houses and trying to tame 3 monkeys.

Here is my number two monkey, really he is a monkey I MUST call him Tucker Monkey. This child had a monkey birthday party and everything. So here is something I snapped as Tucker Monkey was goofing around. Tucker age 4.

My chocolate frosting

This is off the Hershey container. Yes, on the diet we can use Hershey's cocoa. Here is how I make it;

1/2 cup spectrum shortening (melted) or 1/4 cup coconut oil
2/3 cups Hershey's Cocoa
3 cups powered sugar
1/3 cup rice milk
1 tsp. gf vanilla

Mix all together. I find I have to melt the shortening or I have white lumps. I usually add the milk last because I don't want to add too much. Enjoy
