What's cooking?

I remember Oprah once did an episode in which she walked around a neighborhood randomly knocking on doors simply to see what people were cooking for dinner. I loved that episode! I am always interested in what people are cooking. Nic scolds me because I love to "accidentally" peek in people's windows when we take evening walks. I love to cook. It comprises about 35 percent of my life:) This is what I have cooked in the last week. What are you cooking these days?

-Baked Rotini with sausage
-Thai Beef Curry with coconut milk and red peppers
-Sausage and green pepper pizza
-Quadruple berry turnovers
-Nic made fried egg sandwiches on Sunday morning
-grilled cheese and tomato/oregano soup

Bon apetite mes amis!

Good times...good times

Recently, we dug the guitar out from under the bed and we have had so much fun with it! Nic is into Bon Jovi right now and I get serenaded on a regular basis. The kids attack him whenever they hear him play it. He finally gave in and let them play for a while.

Nic is such a good Daddy. He is drawing princesses with Afton.

Afton's Grandma Michelle came to her princess party in a ball gown and jewels.

We went to the cabin in Pine Valley for General conference. The kids loved the hammock and it was super handy for getting the stubborn ones to finally konk out for their naps.

Catching up

So I finally emptied my memory card from my camera for the first time since Christmas. There were so many fun memories I will post a few. I still don't have the hang of this blogging thing...so where the pictures end up I know not...but they will be somewhere on this page in no specific order! Wish me luck.

The Gospel and Cheerios

So I finally coughed up the thirty bucks to buy a gospel art kit. Those things are fantastic! We had a family home evening lesson about the miracle of the seagulls and then a super cute moment ensued. Nic, in all of his creative genius, had the kids pretend they were seagulls. He then sprinkled cheerios all over the carpet and pretended the cheerios were the crickets and our little seagulls had to eat them. Hygenic? No. So dang cute...absolutely. Nic was the pioneer farmer and I was in awe of his adorableness. Then he busted out the dusty guitar and we had a family jam session with primary songs. Isn't this the stuff life is made of?

I've Been Sucked In!

All of my friends are blogging and I am starting to feel left out in conversations! So the time has come for the Larkin Family to join in! My friend Julie is over showing me the ropes of Blogspot. So, this is my test post and there will be more to come soon!

This is Afton who is now four and Evan who is 17 mos. They beg Nic to set them up in the mulberry tree outside our house.
