Shhhhhh..,Brinner,and some more Practice

We took the kids out of school and headed to Universal Studios..Shhhh..don't tell ok..and even though the park was packed and we did a lot of standing in line..it was great..Come on..kids need a break every once in a while..and so do Momma's and Poppa's.
Friday night Hubby had to work late..so the kids and I made the traditional Brinner(Breakfast for Dinner)..and now that the kid are older they help much more in the kitchen..Hannah made the chocolate chip pancakes..Joshua the scrambled eggs and Momma made Grandma's Arepa's(Traditional Colombian cornmeal cakes)..Yummy!!

And for those of you that have signed up for my Giveaway you will be happy to know that I have had some more Soldering practice...lots and lots of practice..I didn't realize at first how hard it would be to get the solder to flow "Just Right"..but at last I think I'm getting the hang of it..Here are some of my recent attempts..

..and with all this solder play I just had to make something for myself..Don't laugh ok!

Thanks for stopping by and
Happy Tuesday Friends!!

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

Brinner is the best, hubby and I do it alot with our ducky eggs. Good to sneak the kids off for the unexpected every now and then. Your soldering looks fab. xox Corrine

Every minute spent with the kids is time well spent, and the more fun the better!
Your soldering looks great, and so do your pendants!

Sounds like you all had a great time! I just got through reading over your children s blogs. They are both really talented and their blogs are so cute!

I love the new pendants! Also how did you make your Universal Studio photos so wonderful? I love that "grungy-around-the-edges" look.

Cat, I am truly amazed! You are so ambitious and creative!! Just look at all of your new pendants! I can appreciate all that went in to learning how to do these...you are becoming a pro already! I just love the one you made of you and your husband. How did you do the font on top of the photos??
