Update on Sam

I just wanted to give you all an update on little Sam.  He is doing some better.  He still has a long way to go but is much improved from the other day.  He managed to come through it without a hospital stay which is a good thing.  We so appreciate your prayers and ask that you would please continue to pray for him.  I just got a call from Jess and she is on her way to the doctor with Katie.  She is congested and running a fever.  Please include Katie and Jess in your prayers.  David is gone to Vegas so Jess is holding down the fort alone.  I think the keeper of the fort could really use some prayers..

Yesterday, we went bowling with the Horns.  We had a great time.  I think I have mentioned this before, our bowling alley does a thing called homeschool bowling.  The first Friday in every month, homeschoolers can bowl for $l.50 a game and the shoe rental is free.  We are hoping to do it again next month.

Today is fairly nice here in Floyd.  When we first got up, the temperature was 19 with a wind chill of 9 degrees.  It has warmed up to about 25 degrees now and we have sunshine.  Not too bad for January.

Well, I hope you all have a great day.  We are planning on doing a little housecleaning and working some on the chicken nests and lot area.  Kinda a slow day.  Tomorrow the girls will be doing all the music for church.  Our piano player is gone on a little vacation so the girls are doing the music.  Grace is doing the congregational for Sunday School.  She is playing “What a friend we have in Jesus”.  She is also playing the doxology and a congregational for worship service-“Rock of Ages”.  Julie is playing “Sweet Hour of Prayer” for her congregational and “Softly and Tenderly” for the invitational.  Julie is also doing a special, “The Old Rugged Cross”.  She will be singing and playing it.  BIG DAY!  Pray for them, that all will go well.

I guess that’s about all.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

UPDATE ON KATIE:  I wanted to let you all know, Katie has the flu.  Jess is supposed to try to keep Katie and Sam apart so Sam doesn’t get it too.  I am going down to help.  It would be so hard for Jess to manage all this alone.   I am thanking you all in advance for your prayers.  God bless.

Easy Pie Recipe

100_5553

I thought I would share with you all this super easy pie recipe.  I don’t know the name of it but years ago when I worked, one of the ladies I worked with used to make this a lot.   It uses simple ingredients and takes very little time.

  I used 1 store bought graham cracker pie crust.  For the filling use, 1 container cool whip, 1 pkg cream cheese-both at room temperature.  Add 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 cup powdered sugar.  Mix with your mixer until well blended.  Pour filling into pie crust.  Then for the topping I used fresh strawberries and a little strawberry glaze.  Set in fridge for a little while to chill, then enjoy.  You can make this with blueberries, peaches, almost any type of fruit.  If you do not want to use the store bought glaze you can always just add sugar to the fresh fruit and let it make its own glaze.  Its all up to your taste. 

Well, Julie ended up with strep throat.  She started running a fever yesterday.  I called the doctor’s office and he called us in a prescription.  Needless to say, we will not be going to church today.  Just staying home and recuperating. 

I hope everyone has a great Sunday and God bless.
