Pasta with Zucchini Sauce

I saw this Pasta with Zucchini Sauce recipe from friend who found it on the net.  She has two little girls who loved it so I thought with lots of Zucchini growing in the garden I would try it to.  With bacon in it I was sure it would be a hit. 

You can find the recipe and directions over here.  Along with some great step by step photos.  This was the only one I got! heheh

The only changes I made to the recipe was I saved some bacon to crumble on the top of the pasta and I added some left over chicken to it. I also may have added some fresh herbs do to the pressure from a friend and my mother in law.  But it did turn out.  We were very happy with the outcome.  Everyone eat it all up!

1st birthday

This month we celebrated our little Jaelyn's first birthday.   There are really only 2 things that will make Jaelyn happy.  1 swimming and 2 ice cream.  So we combined those two things to have a FUN family birthday party for our little girl. 

I searched pintrest for lots of ideas and loved this party hat idea so I had to make one for Jealyn.  I started with a sugar cone.  I glued the base of it and rolled it in ice cream sprinkles. Next I poked a hole in the top of the cone and stuck a few ribbion curls in there.  For the base I used funky designed cup cake holders then glued the hole thing onto a small head band. 

I think it turned out so great!  She actually wore it when we sang happy birthday and maybe it was cause she was so distracted by the ice cream that she didn't bother with it.

here we are on Jaelyn's actually birthday signing happy birthday and letting her have a little piece of chocolate cake with real whipping cream. 

We started the party off with some swimming.  The kids had lots of fun having canoe rides and playing in the water. 

Next it was time to pray and dig in to yummy BBQ burgers and corn on the cob.   You see the pink pom pom in the top of this picture I made those to. They are so easy to make!!!

So then it was time to dig in to the ice can tell that Lady J is VERY excited to see the sundae buffet. 

We had waffle cones and sugar cones.  Some of the cones where dipped in chocolate and rolled in sprinkles. Then we had an 11.4L jar of vanilla ice cream, banana's, peanuts, Reeses, M&M's, score, sprinkles, peanut butter cups, Oreo and chocolate, caramel and strawberry sauce. 

We put a scoop of the ice cream in the cone stuck a candle in a sang again to her.  She screamed the whole time until the ice cream was in her hand! 

And what would a party be with out presents.  I couldn't believe how animated she was to open her gifts.   Thank you everyone who celebrated with us.
