Menu plan and misc

In an attempt to be more organized this week I actually sat down and made out a menu plan. Every time I do this I wonder why I don't always do it. It really doesn't take that long and it saves me so much brain power during the week!

Here's the plan:

Buttermilk donuts (thanks for the tip Gayle!)
Chocolate chip cookies

Top Ramen
Rice a roni
Lasagna (twice)

We keep lunch very simple, not the healthiest but it makes my life much easier!

Hot dog soup with homemade rolls
Bacon & cheese Strata
Creamed eggs on toast
Pretzels with Nacho cheese
Chowder casserole

For snacks we will be having popcorn (butter or sweet) and chocolate chip cookies :)

I'm also going to be baking 4 loaves of bread for the week.

*change of subject*

Last week I realized that I've neglected to take very much video footage of my kids. My camera will take short little clips, so I decided to take a few. This one is my son singing all the books of the New Testament that he learned for AWANA. (He thought I said to sing it as fast as he could)

and this one is Jessica my 3 1/2 yr old singing Twinkle, Twinkle.

Here are a couple pictures of Josiah....just because. Isn't he a cute fireman?

As I was taking photos and videos I realized that I hadn't seen Abram for a few minutes. Hmmm, not so good. I started walking around and went into the kitchen to find...

In case you are wondering, that white stuff on the ground, that's sugar. LOTS of sugar.

These are the moments I'll miss when they're grown, right??

I can't get the videos to work. :(
I have comcast high speed I'm feeling jilted.

WTG on the menu thing. Maybe I should do that. Only I prefer bigger lunches and smaller breakfasts. That's cause I'm sleepy and lazy. By noon I'm ready to go.

I'm jealous of your pictures for me.

I like to make menus, but it seems when I do know one...ok it's me, has a taste for that. I feel your pain on the sugar I will be posting my wonderful Monday morning soon.
And finally the videos were very cute.

Where's a picture of Noah??

Menu plans are good, really good.....but what in the WORLD is hot dog soup? And chowder casserole?

Just wondering!

And I haven't called you like I said I was going to and I bet you're wondering....

Can I call you when I remember to??

Very cute videos. I laugh thinking about the food my son played in when he was a little guy. It will be happy memories someday.
