Kids in the kitchen Year Round Fun is the sweetest cookbook! I found it when I was on our trip to Cottonwood Falls. It is jammed packed with wonderful recipes, that you can do with your children or grandchildren. I love all the Gooseberry Cookbooks and this one is know exception. I am taking this cookbook with me, because we are going to leave tomorrow for COLORADO for a vacation. Oh my, you can not believe how excited all the girls are here in this house! Poor husband, with 3 ladies getting ready packing and packing. I am taking my sewing machine and fabric. Ha! Can you imagine the van. We will make sure Mr. Phil will get his suitcase though! We are going stay in a cabin with electricity. There is a creek in front of the cabin and the smell is soooo wonderful. So woodsy. Yes, just what we need. I guess there is a black bear sharing the space. mmmm. My youngest is so excited she can’t stand it. She just squeals with delight around the house! I am hoping I can find some quilt, scrapbook and yarn stores. I need this vacation, so bad. I will try to put up some pictures on my blog. I hope I can do that.

Any way back to the cookbook. I am going to take it and come up with some menus, because when we come back we will be having Grammie and Poppa Camp with alllllll my nine grandchildren. This book is just perfect. I love it. The recipes are real simple and any child would love them.

While I am gone I will be designing some new patterns. One for sure will be a new apron. Remember the little jar in a few posts back? Well I will be finishing four new patterns using the little jars.

Also, did you know that Gooseberry Patch has a blog? I just found out about it. I think it started in Aug. I think you are going to like it!

Please pray for our safety. Thank you so much. I will be checking if there are any comments on my blog. There is a coffee house down from the cabin, so I can keep posted. I am so excited myself!!! We have a house sitter to take care of the horses, chickens, cats, bunny, dog and iguana so we don't have to worry about anything!
