And baby Sam , well, just being baby Sam. 

We have had some cooler temeperatures here this weekend.  Saturday our low was 35 degrees, Sunday was 34 and this morning it was 38.  I built a fire Saturday and Sunday.  Last night, at church we started a new study.  We will be studying Phillipians.  We had lots of good food (of course).  Chips and dip, cheeseball, homemade rolls, kielbasa with peppers and onions, cole slaw, salmon cakes, chicken, cookies, cake, ice cream and apple dumplings.  As I said, lots of good food.  Well, it’s time for school to start for us.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer

I thought I would share with you all my recipe for pumpkin pie spice coffee creamer.  I got the original recipe from http://drink.betterrecipes.com/pumpkin-pie-spice-coffee-creamer.html  I have altered it a little to suit our taste.  I use 1 cup plain non dairy coffee creamer, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup powdered milk and 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice mix.  Mix together with a whisk. After mixing,   I put the mixture in my coffee grinder and grind it up a little finer than it already is, just to make sure everything is incorporated.    This creamer goes wonderful with the pumpkin spice coffee I told you all about yesterday.  This jar is for Jess, per request.  We will be going down on Saturday for her baby shower. 

I have clothes to get on the line and school to start so I guess I better get busy.  I hope you all enjoy your day and God bless.

New School Books

100_3460 We received our new school books for next year.  This is always an exciting time for us.  We love looking at them to see what the next year will be about.  Of course, about half way through them they will not be near as exciting.  Oh well, enjoy the moment, right.  Temperatures have been rather chilly here.  30 degrees this morning with scattered frost.  Hopefully no damage done.  We spent the weekend at Jessica’s.  Saturday was her baby shower day.  She received many nice things but of course I forgot my camera, so no pictures.  Her mother-in-law got her a really nice bassinet.  She is going to use this upstairs in the bedroom for a while.  Then they will put up his crib.   We also celebrated Hubby’s birthday while we were there.  Hot dogs with all the fixin’s and birthday cake.  We had a great time.  As usual, though, it goes by too quick.  When we came home last night, it was pretty chilly in the house.  We hurried and built a fire.  We still have one going today but I think it is going to warm up nicely.  The sun is shining and it looks beautiful outside.  Hubby and I are going to get another load of wood while the girls stay here and work on school.  Dale-a friend from church- is bringing over his wood splitter this evening to let us borrow.  Thank you Dale and thank you Lord for provided us with such good friends.  We are truly blessed.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
