New Deck, New Recipe ...

I apologize for being so sporadic with my posting. Life just gets very crazy around here! I have many pictures and stories to post and hopefully I will be able to catch up in the coming week. I will start with last Saturday.

Tim and his Dad started work on our new deck by the back door. It is pretty small but very wonderful. Getting in the back door before was always a production. I don't know how many times I have fallen or almost fallen down the steps trying to get in the back door with something in my hands. So this was a very exciting day to be sure!! They started around nine in the morning and quit around nine at night. It isn't "finished" yet but it is usable and we love it!! My husband is so amazing, I love watching him make things with his hands! He is so smart, I wouldn't even know where to start! Speaking of the handsome man, here he is!!In this picture you can get a better idea of the deck, I will post more pictures when the project is completely done. Bryan and David are giving moral support apparently. :)
For supper, Karla, Christina, and I decided to make something new and yummy that Karla and I saw on a blog, Real Mom Kitchen--Grilled Pizza. I have never done this before but it looked so yummy, I had to try it. It was very yummy!! We made 20 personal size pizzas. Everyone loved them, the grill gave them a very nice flavor.

And then after the kids were in bed a few of us had dessert--frappuccinos! Yum!!
What fun you can have being creative with friends!!
