Horseshoe Picnic

Yesterday was our second annual horseshoe pitching picnic.  I thought I would share a few pictures with you all.  We had a great time with lots of good food (of course), good fellowship and good music.   I think that hammock is calling my name!

The Lord blessed us with a beautiful day. 

Our VBS starts tonight.  The girls will be playing the music all 5 nights.  Julie is in charge of the games tomorrow night.  When did my babies become workers instead of just participants?  Well, it does this mama’s heart good to see them serving the Lord. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Finished

The front porch is finished.  I wanted to show you the finished product.  I’m not sure the picture does a good job of showing it or not.

I rolled the blinds down some so you all could see them too.  When we do school out here, we roll them down some to eliminate the glare.  They also help keep it cooler in the summer.  We now have cleaned and mopped the floor and returned all the furniture to the porch.  It is so nice.  Thanks, Hubby.

Yesterday was spent down at Jessica’s watching the boys while she went for her ultra sound.  She saw the heart beat so all is well in Mama’s world.  She is 8 weeks and her due date is Nov. 9th.  Very close to Grace’s birthday.  Today will be catch up at school and getting the house cleaned for tomorrow’s bible study.  It is my turn for dessert and I am planning on making cinnamon rolls.  We are going over to the Horn’s tomorrow evening to eat and visit with them.  I am making enough cinnamon rolls to take over there as well. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

A Good Laugh

I thought you all might enjoy a good laugh today.  When I make fried chicken I bread the chicken inside a plastic bag.  I put the flour and stuff in the bag, put the chicken in and shake.  Well, this is what happens if the bag burst.  I would have loved to see the look on my face when it first happened.  I know it was priceless.  Of course, my loving girls had to run and get the camera so they could have proof that this really happened.

It was hilarious.  They had to get Hubby so he could see this beautiful woman he married.  We all laughed so hard.  What else could we do?

My thanks to my sweet Julie who helped her mama clean up this mess.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

New Babies

Our newest addition.  Ain’t they cute!  The girls are soooooo excited.  They never thought of having kittens to play with this late in the year.  They belong to “Stripes”.  You all have seen pictures of her in previous posts.  They seem to be very healthy and she is a wonderful mama. 

Today we had to go to Roanoke to the dentist.  Afterward we went to Sam’s club.  Sam’s does this thing called click and pull.  You can go on line, order your stuff and they will pull it for you.  They will have it waiting at customer service.  All you have to do is walk in, give them your name, pay for it and walk out the door.  Pretty amazing, I think.  This made our day so much easier.  We even made it home it time to do some school. 

Yesterday, for supper, we had chicken and dumplings with green beans.  I used the remainder of the chicken and made southwest chicken soup for supper tonight.  Easy stuff.  We will be having mexican cornbread with this and honey baked apples for dessert. 

We just finished having a tremendous hail storm here.  Lots of rain and high winds.  The temperature dropped about 14 degrees in just a few minutes.   It had been very warm before the storm came through.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.
