He brought me...

My sweet Collin went to visit his papa Don yesterday with Daddy and they picked me a vase full of flowers!  Collin called me on the way home and told me 
"I have a beautiful surprise for you mommy..."
Now isn't that just dripping with sweetness???
I mean seriously, 
eat your heart out ladies!  ;)

The flowers are beautiful, 
but it's the little boy holding them 
who blooms the most radiantly!

What's for Dinner?
I am going to start sharing a few of our family favorites here!  I figure that way my kids will have them written down and maybe someone else will get a new dinner idea as well!  
Tonight we are having...
drum roll please....
dah dah dah dah...

Best Ever Meatloaf
1 lb ground beef
1/2 c Ragu chunky mushroom sauce
1/2 c bread crumbs
1/2 c feta (I know sounds weird, just trust me)
1/2 cup diced onion
1 egg

Combine all ingredients and place in a loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  After one hour take out and cover with mozzarella cheese.  Bake for another 5-10 minutes until cheese melts.  Serve and enjoy the oohs and aahs that come from your family! 
Yum!!  I have served this for so many guests and people always just LOVE it!  
 Try it and let me know what you think!!
