My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

da man!

So, the element in our oven went out. As in broke into 4 pieces.

We went 8 days without an oven.

Subvet was greatly bothered by this.

At his first opportunity after the oven was fixed he made in one day:

2 batches of chocolate chip muffins

2 batches of chocolate chip cookies

2 gallons of spaghetti sauce

an apple pie

and a strawberry pie



it was a 2 towel operation.
(he claimed the kitchen was too hot to wear his apron)





please note that this is my nice embroidered Christmas hand towel.....

(and you wonder why that turtle is moving so slooooowwww????)

the salt box is a code to say "Stop telling me to be still so you can take pictures!! I'm busy here!!!!!!!" :-)

Looks like SubVet definitely made up for some lost time! He can come on by my house and cook up a storm for me anytime!
