The K family

I recently was offered the opportunity to take pictures for my Sister's family.  I am learning and still have so much to learn, but with the help of great subjects and my Sister's prop I think they came out well.

Back in the kitchen

One of my favorite places in my home is my kitchen ~
I love trying new recipes and making food for others!

I spent 5 hours today in my happy place :-)

I prepped a pork roast for the crock-pot by smothering it in my homemade BBQ sauce

Having used the last of my sauce, I made a new batch!

Now that dinner was cooking I set out on my next dish...
Mocha cheesecake

Next I set up dinner for Tuesday night, Valentine's Day

I found a great recipe for chicken cordon blue
for the crockpot!!!

Lastly, I made the cakes for my attempt at Red Velvet cake!

I'll take that to work on Wednesday, but with the cakes baked
I'll only need to frost on tuesday night.
Hopefully I am please enough with it to take a photo
to post later !

Uncle Tommy's visit

Dear Son came for a visit from Seattle to see his niece.

I get super excited when I see his plane arrive :-)

We put Uncle Tommy right to work feeding the baby...

Next day we hosted a brunch for the family and shared our baked goods ~
Hubs and I had made swedish tea ring and sweet rolls...

Granddaughter Harlow & her 2nd cousin Jake 'performing for the family'
We put the babies in the center of the floor and
they kept everyone entertained for nearly an hour!! 
It was great to see them together :-)

Harlow & her Uncle spent some time watching the NFL playoff game

Uncle Tommy just cracks me up!!!

It was a great visit, always wonderful to have my family together ~ ♥

Uncle Tommy was able to spend quality time with his niece
and we look forward to the next visit!!
