Just me and the Boys

It's all gravy!

We have been going non-stop since school let out. We have had Gram's retirement, I got to help with my sweet niece's birthday, shopping at Canton with a good friend, a visit from Curt's cousin and her baby, Hawaiian Falls and then a visit from two of my nieces! Gram came to get the two nieces today...and took Josh and Zach with her. It is VERY quiet here! I miss them badly! I just love having a house fun of sweeties!
I have decided we will be having many more cousin slumber parties. I got to have a lot of GIRL TIME!

They played lots of Hide and Seek (and giggled).
We ate kid food-aka *hot dogs*. They boys were very excited...

We braided hair (and giggled).

And watched movies-GIRL ONES! Like 'Tangled '
and 'Anne'. Oh, yeah! Movies in which the characters broke out into song! And giggled.

The boys were not interested in this activity.

They did, however, love playing with their girl cousins.

They were real tired when they went to bed at night.
But these three were always the first to get up.

They watched cartoons and waited patiently for Chocolate Gravy....a girl sleep-over tradition!

I loved every second! Giggling was my favorite!

Chocolate Gravy

4 1/2 T. flour
5 T. cocoa
1 2/3 C. sugar

Melt butter in large skillet, over low heat. Add milk and stir. Mix in all dry ingredients and stir constantly over medium heat until it has thickened. Serve over piping hot biscuits!

  1. you've told me about this for years and I still haven't ever tried it and I'm guessing I need to keep it that way!
