Oatmeal Cake is one of my favorite cakes that my Mom makes.  It is like having a soft chewy oatmeal cookie and dipping it in whipped cream ..... yummy   The Strawberries in the picture came out of our strawberry patch, we are going to have strawberries coming out of our ears.  I am going to make strawberry freezer jam and more strawberry desserts also to come.

Today was the Senior and Junior Powder Puff  Football Game.  It is really fun to watch the girls play football.  Of course they play flag football but it still gets pretty ruff out there.  Cally is complaining of a sore neck tonight after playing today.  It is also complete with boy cheerleaders.  I had a blast getting to go watch and take pictures and oh yea......SENIORS WIN 28-21
