Thursday at the House of Steve will henceforth be called COLTON COOKS!  
In a mere fourteen months, this boy will be leaving home and he needs to be prepared.  Cooking is only something that he's occasionally helped with and it's time to get serious.  I asked him last night which day of the week he would like to cook dinner.  Thursday was his quick reply and here we are.  Fortunately for him, the menu was already planned and the meat was thawed.  I present Colton's first meal -
Spaghetti Bake, Homemade French Bread and Carrot Sticks.
(I ended up helping out tonight, but in the future I will only advise from the sidelines.)
He learned to use the vegetable peeler....didn't know he lacked this skill.
 Browning the sausage.
 The drama of spreading the sauce
 What a goof!
 Looking good
 French Bread......our first time making this.
 Cheesy goodness
 SO GOOD!!!!!
The meal was really good and I'm excited for Colton to learn some new skills.
Before dinner, I was feeling a need to use my camera and Kyler was my (not-so-willing) model.  He came out of the house with Roscoe - Roscoe was even less willing to model for me!
 Every dog needs a boy!
 You never know what you'll get with this boy.
 Time for the Steele Girls!  Reagan calling someone on my phone.
 They come over for their daily lollypop.
 Reagan loves her "pop-pop"
 After dinner, Colton and I ran an errand and came home to the bat signal on the garage door.  It was his answer to Mormon Prom and got two thumbs up from everyone in the family.

Finally, is anyone else counting down to summer......47 days!
