Ten on Ten

  I’ve been wanting to do a Ten on Ten post every month since I started this blog a year ago, and sadly…..I’ve only accomplished it TWICE!

10 on 10: First attempt

10 on 10: 2nd attempt

After that, I promptly forgot all about it!

    Now some months, I did remember, but the 1oth and 11th fell on a weekend.  I don’t post on weekends, so this automatically disqualified me.  But here I am, back in the ol’ Ten on Ten saddle again.

  Here are the Ten on Ten instructions:

Take a photo every hour for ten consecutive hours on the tenth of each month. Document a day of your life and find beauty among the ordinary moments. Then share your beauty with us! (on the 11th)

I give you, yesterday’s Ten on Ten:

Or we could call it Twenty Four on Ten, since I took too many!  🙂

Good Morning!


My sweet school girl:


Time for play:


Check out these cool glasses that turn lights into snow flakes! (Yes, the kids still have their Mini-trees up, I am waiting for Dale to bring home giant trash bags before we haul them out to store.)

Through Ty's eyes

Onrey boy! 043Today alone he broke on of my favorite decorations on my buffet when he CRAWLED UP ON IT! Then, while I was still getting over that, he set a candle on top of my brand new Fireplace insert….Wax EVERYWHERE!  Then he stuck a green marker down the humidifier hole as well as a golf club handle.  {No photos of this, too busy PULLING MY HAIR OUT!}

   This kid cannot be left alone for ONE SECOND!  Time to do an activity for all the kids.

Coloring sounds safe….




Getting close to nap and lunch time


Crabitha makes her appearance, it is TOTALLY nap time!


Rest well sweeties, see you in an hour or two….

Nap time!

Mommy’s lunch followed by quiet time blogging and practicing table décor for tomorrow night’s function:



Then feeding the animals…..


While I was out, I decided to photo the kids “Garden” from yesterday, complete with fence.  We are loving this nice weather, but come on snow already!!!!


Daddy’s home just to change and head back to a church board meeting….Pax says, See ya later, Mom!

Daddys home

Supper tonight:

Man Casserole, Dale’s favorite!


Danger: Teeny toys about.


Good-night my loves, sweet dreams!




Leftover Chili Solution: Nacho Supremes

When I was a kid, I loved it when my mom had leftover Chili because she’d make it into this delicious meal. The homemade creamy cheese sauce MAKES this dish!

Nacho Supremes


  • 1 stick Butter
  • ¾ cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 3-½ cups Whole Milk, Or More As Needed
  • 2 pounds Velveeta Cheese
  • Yellow Corn Chips, To Serve
  • 10 cups (or More) Warm Leftover Chili
  • Optional Garnish: Tomatoes, Sour Cream, Lettuce Shreds

Melt butter in a large family skillet. Slowly whisk in flour and salt until it makes a paste. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly and until thickened. Add cubed Velveeta and stir until melted. Add up to 1/2 cup milk more at the end to thin down the cheese if it’s too thick.

Serve over a plate of chips and Chili and garnish per your taste. Delicious!
