Doin’ some Cooking!

Monday, September 29th, 2014

James really enjoyed this granola but I haven’t made it for a long time. I bought all the ingredients and today made a batch and 1/2. MMMMM it’s so good! I started another batch of kefir for baby. I used to make it and drink it all the time but it seems I’ve gotten a […]

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm~Suzanne Woods Fisher~Book Review

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

I’ve been privileged to review several of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s books and I always enjoy them. This book was no exception. It’s set at Christmas time and has a great story line. As I was reading, I thought, “Wow! How does she do this in book after book? I wanted  to keep reading. I wanted […]

This Makes Me Happy

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

I’m not necessarily happy because I have Little People all over my floor. I’m happy because of the pudgy little baby who loves to play with the Little People. We’re so very thankful that God chose to bless us with him. He makes us laugh every day……and he leaves his Little People all over the […]

Oh No…..

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

A few years ago, we switched churches to one in another town. Some of the ladies from my town asked if there was a life group in our area. We decided to start a study for ladies in our town every other week and I offered to lead it. I’ve led Bible studies before and […]

We Don’t Qualify For the Food Pantry

Friday, September 12th, 2014

James worked with the homeschool group yesterday at the food pantry. It’s the same food pantry that we went to for years. Every month, we checked in and were told how many items we could choose based on our family size. We’d take our cart through and find things that we could use. I loved […]

Mom’s Night Out~Review & Giveaway

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

I had the pleasure of reviewing Mom’s Night Out on DVD. It looked like a fun family friendly movie so I took it along on our vacation. One night when James and Lee were busy, I sat down to watch it. Funny! I had some laugh out loud moments for sure.  I’m a bit of […]

Home Again Home Again Jiggety Jog

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Phew….we’re home! I didn’t blog as I intended too but that’s ok right?! Vacation is vacation! We had a great trip with lots of family time. Some great sightseeing…..lots of heat  (ugggh) and safe travels. Quite a few times, I just thought how in years past we would have given everything we had to just […]

Back To School….

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Oops…..not yet! Normally, we start school the day after Labor Day but we are on vacation. Many parts of our trip are super educational and historic so I don’t feel badly at all! I have the books to get started. I have the basic plans for the year. I have not scheduled the first couple […]

Traveling With Baby

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Photo credit: FidlerJan from We don’t take too many road trips and the ones we’ve taken have been short–a couple hours or less. When James was a baby, we flew for all our vacations. Baby Nathan went on a 3 hour road trip with my sister and I in the early summer but that’s […]
