Shea decided to lock himself in my room this morning. He has been learning to "turn or twist" things this week. For example, on Monday it was my mascara wand that he learned to twist open and put on his face like blush - I guess he was trying his best to copy mommy! Good thing it was washable! Yesterday he twisted off the cap of a water bottle. And today, he went in my room and shut the door. I started walking toward my room when I heard the click. He had turned the lock on the door. Oh boy. I tried to unlock it with bobby pins, screwdrivers, anything I could get my hands on but couldn't get it unlocked. So I finally took the doorknob off the door and rescued my boy who was just crying his little heart out. But we are all better now & glad to be out! :)

Some old news - we had some fun family time over the last couple of weeks. I have pics from July 4th and from Cow Appreciation Day at Chic-Fil-A to post but my camera adaptor is broken and I'm unable to load pictures on my computer for now. Stay tuned - hopefully I'll get them up by the weekend.

Wow! I'm impressed...took the doorknob off. You go girl!

Well... I figured I had two choices: take the doorknob off or bust the window. The doorknob seemed the most logical choice ;)

I just wrote a question for you about your meal in the freezer post you have below. Just wanted to let you know! I see too that you have Today's Housewife as one of your blogs that you read. Do you know one of the writers? I'm the Thursday girl! :)

Hi kama - I don't know Today's Housewife personally, and to tell you the truth I can't remember how I found the blog! :) But I love reading it so I bookmarked it on my page.

For the freezer meals: you do cook the noodles first. I like to cook them for about 6 minutes so they still have a "bite" to them because once in the freezer they do get a little softer. Any cheese will do. I think I used a mixture of colby jack & cheddar shredded since that's what I had on hand.

Hope it works out for you and your family likes it!! :)

Thanks so much! I was going to make it without cooking the noodles and that might have been a little...strange. :)
