 Layla's 8th grade cheer team competed in the NCA competition this weekend.





 It was a long and busy weekend of cheering and giggles.  I stayed in a room at the Omni hotel with LK and two other cheerleaders.  They went to be late and got up super early.







 Their routine was performed perfectly two days in a row.  They are so fun to watch!







 We got to Dallas Friday afternoon.  They practiced Friday afternoon and performed Saturday morning and Sunday morning.  The rest of the time was waiting and wondering and lots of bonding.





I'm thankful for a fun group of moms to hang out with!






Our girls got 12th place in our division.  The competition was tough!  They amaze me and I can't wait to see these girls head into high school cheer.  I know they will continue to grow as a team in the years to come!!

why do I always forget about monkey bread?

3 cans of biscuits, I buy the small four pack
2/3 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cut biscuits into 4 pieces.  Shake and toss pieces in sugar and cinnamon. Layer in pan. Put butter  a little sugar and splash of vanilla in a pan and bring to a slow bubbly stage.  Pour over biscuits.  
Bake for 35 minutes at 350.






I remember my mom making monkey bread when I was a little bitty girl.  It was one of my favorite things on earth.  I have to say I've been a pretty smart girl since I was that bitty.  Anything with a stick of butter equals smarts. Butter is my bestie.



I love that this recipe card was written by my mom.  I have some really good recipes still handwritten.  Even with all the Internet options I pull up old posts from here (click on the sidebar, RECIPE) or I grab my recipe book for old favorites.  Speaking of favorites, this cake might just be the best cake on the planet.  You can always find my jalapeno ranch dip on the blog too.

Go Panthers!!



It was cold and misting, but we had fun anyway!  We love our Panthers and high school football.




 



We lost the game sadly, but we had the best time cheering on our team.
