This of course is a kids camera. Anna loves taking pictures. I would love to be able to encourage that without risking my camera!
If anyone has ever used either of these items or something similar I would love to hear your feedback!

Monday: Pork Chops (grilled)
with Pasta Roni and some peas
Tuesday: Hamburgers and hotdogs (our friend Jason will be coming over)
I still need to go get hamburger buns and some fries. They didn't have any buns except for the super expensive ones and the potatoes (on sale) I was going to get to make homemade fries weren't there.
Wednesday: rice and black eyed peas
That is all I needed to shop for this week. We are going out of town this weekend. Some how I spent $38.00 and still didn't get everything I needed. I did get cereal and sandwich meat and things like that but still where did my money go this week?
