Cheesy Potato Egg Bake

Prepare yourselves, my dearies–because this little cheesy, hammy, egg-y, potato-y bit of Heaven is a breakfast dream come true!!

I’m all about anything that is easy and quick to toss together, in the first place. But to know that this is a wholesome, protein-packed day starter is a huge plus. Pretty sure the littles will even eat this one.

And get this–you can throw everything together the night before–if that floats your boat! Just put all the ingredients into the pan, cover it with foil and poof! Ready for the morning. It does take about 40 minutes in the oven, but you know that’s how long it takes to get all those kiddos ready anyway, right? Of course, right.

Oh, one last thing. Four ingredients.

Un-huh. That’s what I said.

Frozen, shredded hash browns…

grated cheese…

and diced ham or cooked, crumbled sausage…

and of course, eggs.

Simple, right?

Yeah. You ow me big.

Things To Love

A new line of fabric from my favorite designer, April Rosenthal, called Mama’s Cottage, with a particularly personal touch. See the blue house, with the red roof? That’s my house–immortalized in fabric!! Hee, hee…  So beautiful and of course, it just makes me sooo happy.

Then there’s this little sprig of joy.  He’s such a little smiler, all the time. And don’t miss the matching church ties. So dang cute!

This little labor of love, for a sweet boy with a cold head–more on that later.

I may have made one in red…too.   :]

Having a really smart daughter that knows how to put these ancient relics into a format that we can actually watch. What a blessing not to lose all those memories that we thought we’d never see again.

And finally, these little golden girlie curls. Yes, I know it’s blurry–but you can’t take a clear picture of a firefly.

So much to love. And that’s just a pinch.

There’s always more.

 

Look What WE Have!!

This, my dears is our newest little sweetheart–Merrick. He’s the happiest little soul that you’ve ever seen and OH, so much fun to snuggle and kiss.

 Do you just adore the matching ties for church?

He is the son of Dane & Kortney and the dearest little grand-baby imaginable.

So glad they are close by so they can share all this happiness with us.

Vaporeon

Ahhhhh…sweet little Vaporeon. She’s an evolution of the Pokemon Evie. And while I have never really studied the zillions of different Pokemon that are out there in the world–it seems that the more I crochet for friends and family, the more I’m asked to crochet…for friends and family. Haha.

So, be impressed that I now know several different ones quite intimately, indeed.

I started with several patterns that I found online and improvised as I went along.

Longer legs than the pattern calls for? I can do that.

A more majestic head fin? No problem

A cuter mouth?  Got it.

Slightly poky spine plates? Check.

More elaborate collar? Check.

A more fishy tail? And double check.

This little thing was actually hard to send away to it’s new home. I’d grown rather attached to her by the time I’d finished. In the end–I swallowed hard and boxed her up. I’m sure she’s happy with her forever family now and I’m on to my next project.

Never a dull moment.

Diglett Evolution

When I made the last Diglett for Beckham’s Birthday, I wasn’t particularly satisfied. He was cute enough, but only just barely. I wanted him to be cuter.  I wanted him to look like the Diglett I would have made if I wasn’t in such a hurry. It was keeping me up at night.

I mean it.

Then, Rhenny-boy showed me this evolution of Diglett called Alola.

Recognizing my chance to make the changes I wanted…

I kidnapped him.This little guy totally got a make-over. He has a new nose, new felted eyes, new lumpy, bumpy,  more stable dirt and LOOK…

He even has HAIR!! This is the cutie that I wanted to make if I’d have not had to rush so much at the end. So incredibly much more huggable than the last guy.

Best of all, Beckham loves him and I can finally, finally get some sleep.
