hooray for sesame street

its something that david will actually sit for a bit and watch. not that i like him rotting in front of the tv, but for the most part, he's always on the go. this is something that will hold his attention so that i can actually go to the bathroom by myself!

we had a good time at my parents' house yesterday, but damn, it was hot! the kids were good for most of the day. david was his usual self, bouncing from toy to toy. and emily walked my mom all over the place!! she's going to be walking on her own before we know! i can't wait! david spent a while in the pool while emily took a ride with my dad to pick up my grandma's perscriptions.

justin picked us up some dairy queen on the way home. i've been dying to try the tag along blizzard. it was well worth the wait, but my stomach was so full for the rest of the night. i keep trying to repeat in my head "nothing tastes as good as thin feels". oh it sure tasted good, but i felt like crap for the rest of the night...when will i learn?!

so my fruit tart pic is being voted on @ today. its holding its own against some really good pics.
i won't win a prize or anything, but the top four pics will be on the home page for the day. i've never won anything before, so i think that would be neat!!
would you like the recipe? well here it is anyway!!

Triple Berry Cheesecake Tart

1 1/4 cups finely crushed NILLA Wafers
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 (8 ounce) package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
2 cups mixed berries (raspberries, sliced strawberries and blueberries)
3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (4 serving size) JELL-O Brand Lemon Flavor Gelatin
1 cup ice cubes

Mix wafer crumbs and butter in small bowl until well blended. Press onto bottom and up side of 9-inch tart pan. Place in freezer while preparing filling.
Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Spoon into crust. Arrange berries over cream cheese filling. Cover and refrigerate.
Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in medium bowl 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add ice cubes; stir until ice is completely melted. Refrigerate about 15 min. or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites.) Spoon gelatin over fruit in pan. Refrigerate 3 hours.
