The Pampered Mom's Thin Mint Homemade Ice Cream

Thursday, July 28, 2016
Can we just talk about WILL POWER for a moment?  I mean seriously, I have had a FULL box of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies in  my freezer since F E B R U A R Y!  It's literally the first thing you see when you open it up too.  I mean ... not just me, but my entire family right?!  We knew we would make homemade ice cream with the box ... so there was that to look forward to, but literally, no one even sneaked a cookie from the box ... I don't know about you, but I'm impressed!

So here it is ... the long awaited Thin Mint Homemade Ice Cream in all its glory.  And let me tell you ... there was not an ounce left after the boys got a hold of it!  This time I added a half roll into the ice cream process, and then we used some to sprinkle on the top.  Next time I'll probably add a whole role, but I didn't know how strong the flavors were going to be.

Happy Friday Eve!

Fourth of July :: Summer 2016

Sunday, July 10, 2016
Our tradition of taking the boys photos on the tree lined driveway at Ryan's Grandmothers home was completed again this year. I am so thankful that we have a beautiful place to capture these moments.

As I was editing them late the other night, I had a moment of ... wow, the boys look like this?  When you see them every moment of every day, you don't notice the small changes.  I can't believe how grown up they are getting.  These strong, loving, and caring boys are growing up before my eyes, and I am so proud of the young men they are becoming.

Breaden has begun to love photography, the first two photos are ones that he took himself ... not too bad!
