Daniel’s birthday cake.  He was very excited about his cake.  He loves “Cars” and especially “TowMater”.  (Hope I spelled that correct)

Friends playing at the party.  All in all I think he had a really fun day.

David, Jess and the boys are coming up tomorrow for a visit.  Our church will be  sponsoring  a clay shoot tomorrow.  David will be spending the day with Hubby at the shoot.  Julie and Grace are going to be with them.  Jess, myself and the boys will find something else to do-too much loud noise for little ears.  Sunday they plan on going to church with us.  This will be Sam’s first visit to our church.  MawMaw can’t wait to show him off.  After church we will be going to the Mennonite church for their annual hymm sing.  It is always such a blessing to go there.  Beautiful hymns!

Sunday night we will be starting our new bible study.  We will be doing John MacArthur’s study on II Corinthians.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Growing Up

Look how much the baby geese have grown.  100_3536

Learning how to follow in a line.

They have grown so much.  I guess I didn’t realize how fast they would grow.  They wonder all around in the fields and even sometimes in the yard.  Very cute.

We also have other new babies.  The girls found these yesterday in one of our outbuildings.  I’m not sure who their momma is but they are very cute.

Fog came in this morning.  If you look very closely you can see the geese on the pond.  Now you can’t even see the pond.  Very foggy.   Very dreary but good for the plants I put in the garden yesterday.  Yesterday was a very busy day.  When I was young, my mom would use the term “wash day”.  I understand this term better now.  On a wringer washer, doing lots of laundry  literally is a full day of work.  I filled up all my clotheslines twice. LOTS of laundry.   Included in this full day, I also put all the vegetable plants we had purchased in the garden.  Hopefully we are done with frost.   Last night was Team Kids at church.  Next Wednesday is party night as this will be the last week until fall.  Tomorrow we will finish up our Esther study by Beth Moore.  This has been a very good study.  I highly recommend it.  Our Ladies Friday Study will be doing I Corinthians by John MacArthur next.  After that, I want to do Beth Moore’s study on Revelation.   Is anyone familiar with it?  I have looked at it at Lifeway but I would like to get feedback from someone who has done it.  Our Corinthians study is 12 weeks so I have a while to decide.  Better get busy.  Take care and God bless.

Friday Ladies Bible Study Group

This is our Friday Ladies Group.  Okay so two are looking down but it is the best we could do.  The sun was shining directly in our eyes.  The study as I have said before is really good.  We have 3 more lessons to go.  Then we are going to do I Corinthians using John MacArthur’s study book.  Today has been busy.  I made a loaf of bread, then made a batch of laundry detergent.  We are doing school and in my spare time I have hung out 4 extra large loads of laundry on the line.  Rain is supposed to come tomorrow so I wanted to get as much dried outside as I could.  We had frost this morning with temperatures about 28.  The house is just now started to warm up.  I didn’t want to build a fire because then the clothes I put on the line smell like wood smoke.  Not a bad smell-just not that fresh spring smell I wanted.  Tonights supper menu will be baked chicken, broccoli and cheese, and mashed potatoes.  And of course the  bread I made today.  Dessert will be rhubard dumplings.  Sounds pretty good.  I guess I better get started on all this food.  Hubby has just come in and seems to be VERY hungry.  Take care and God bless.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to my sweet baby girl!!  Yesterday was party day.  Best Friends celebrating together.  Life is good.  Yellow cake with chocolate icing and only a few sprinkles (just the way she likes it).   Yesterday, Hubby and his brother went out to cut more wood and today he is going with our friend from church.  Hopefully lots to split and stack.  He is deer hunting this morning , something he truly enjoys, and something we all truly enjoy eating.  Good Luck, hon.  I’m not sure what the girls and I will get into yet.  There is always something to do around here.   Tomorrow we hear another trial sermon from the candidate for pastor.  We will have another fellowship meal after church.  We also start our new study on Revelation from John MacArthur tomorrow.  I think the book of Revelation is one of the hardest books in the bible to understand and probably the most misunderstood.  Hopefully, I will know a little more about it when this study is finished.   Next Sunday we will vote on the pastor.  I’m still not sure how to vote Yes. or NO.  I’m still praying.  I think this is a very BIG decision and I want to make sure I’m on the same page as God.  Pray that all will go well and that we, as a church, will vote according to God’s will.  Well, better get busy.  God Bless.

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin growing in our garden100_2066

This year as a gift from God we have pumpkins.  Quite a lot of pumpkins.  We have decided to harvest them a little early as bugs have decided they like them too.    The pie was made completely from scratch as you probably can tell.  The crust is a very simple recipe that doesn’t require being rolled out.  I like things simple.  The filling recipe came from an old lady at a farmers market we visited years ago.   If anyone is interested in these recipes let me know and I will post them.  Today has been a good day.  The girls played piano at church today.  Grace played the special and Julie played the congregational.  Big step for Julie-playing while others sing with her.  They both did great.  When I hear them play like that I think all that money and time for lessons was REALLY worth it.   It’s almost time to leave for Sunday Night Bible Study at church.  We are using John MacArthur’s study on the book of Daniel.  It has been a very interesting study so far.  The pie is for church tonight.  After bible study we always eat(Its the Baptist way)  Tonight we will be having a feast.  Pinto beans, cornbread, onions, tomatoes, hot dogs, cole slaw, and pie.  Who could ask for more.  As I tell my oldest daughter, we really do study, the food is just extra.  Gotta go and God Bless.
