Yummy Banana Bread

I have had this recipe for FOREVER! I love how easy it is.....tons of calories......but yummy! It's perfect for when those banana's are brown and no one will eat them. I usually cut it in half and only make 1 loaf, but here is the full recipe!

2 1/2 C. Flour
1 1/2 tsp soda
3/4 C. Butter (soft)
1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
2 eggs
6-7 Ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 C. Walnuts (Optional)


Preheat oven to 325. Mix butter, brown sugar, eggs, bananas, and vanilla until well blended. Mix in flour, soda and walnuts. Grease 2 bread loaf pans and split batter evenly between the 2 pans. Bake 60-80 minutes until knife comes out of center clean. Serve warm with butter....Yummy!!

Some hot chicks!!!

We've been talking about getting some chickens for a while now and today daddy brought some home!!! Lexie was very happy to have new friends and didn't want to leave them to eat dinner. Hopefully we'll have just 1 male in the bunch and the rest will lay eggs!!! Nothing like fresh eggs! Our biggest fear will be some other animals killing them for dinner. Birds, racoons and foxes love chickens as much as we do.....tastey!

PS...I did video and pictures since the video wont transfer to a book.

Kite flying!

Yesterday was so nice and windy we had to get outside!! What's better than taking out the kite for a spin. This was Lexie's first time trying it and she LOVED it! So cute!

Lexie's Elmo party

Lexie had her bday party this weekend, just a reason to get together with people we love!! Thanks to everyone who was able to come!!















Pin the nose on elmo......



Lexie having more candy......Ruby helping her out, Ruby is older and such a mother hen......LOVE HER!




Elmo Pinata.....





R.I.P elmo....you'll be missed!

The cake.........she starts blowing out the candles before I can light the them. The biggest problem with that is she has peanut M&M's in her mouth and she is spraying nuts and chocolate everywhere!



We gave her a drink to rinse out her mouth.....




But before we could sing she put more M&M's in her mouth.....who was watching this kid??


I was trying to blow them out before the whole cake had chocolate and nut spit all over it but I was laughing too hard.






Kick'n back enjoying the fun.

Lots of wonderful gifts!!



The last guest leaving....thanks for coming!



Who doesn't like playing with balloons.
