Party at my crib!

We always have a family dinner when my parents come into town. My siblings that live near by always come and bring their kiddos. My S-I-L had us over and fixed a yummy dinner. Fried potatoes were involved. Need I say more?

While we were there, Millie invited Amelia to hang out in her crib to play. I love that Amelia has a cousin this close in age. They're a month apart. Amelia loved Millie's mobile. They laid there for quite some time...just enjoying the mobile and being together.

Millie would put her hand in Amelia's face.

Amelia would lick Millie's hand.

Stuff you could only do with your BFC (best friend/cousin).

Look at their sweet hands. I love these girls!

My Mom made these to take. They were AWESOME! If you want to try them (and I highly recommend that you do) she's going to share the recipe on her blog soon.

Speaking of yummy stuff. I had some of you ask for the recipe for this peanut butter pie. I found this recipe online. At There is no baking involved and it's so good. It ranks within the top 3 on Alex's list of favorite desserts.

Yes, he has a list.

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk
1 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crusts

Beat together cream cheese and confectioners' sugar.
Mix in peanut butter and milk. Beat until smooth.
Fold in whipped topping.
Spoon into two 9 inch graham cracker pie shells; cover, and freeze until firm.


Love to all,

Aimee (my sister) and I love that our children are close in age too. It is wonderful when the family is together and they will grow up together. I love the BFC, may have to use that one myself. They are too cute for words. You guys are blessed with those sweeties!!!

Fried potatoes! YUMMO!!!! One of my favorite foods... seriously!

I'm not sure I read anything past that - just kidding! Love the pics of the girls.... Amelia is lucky to have so many girl cousins so close to her age.

Love you!
