Farewell, Summer

Farewell, Summer

It's hard to believe that the last time I posted, it was May.
My intention was to take -{2 weeks}- off so we could celebrate three milestone Birthdays and then be back here with some new Recipes.

Boy, was I ever mistaken.

After the first of the  Birthday Parties, we had a Camping Trip over Father's Day, the second Birthday Party and then Family Reunion--Mt. Hermon--Friends & Family from out of state--Woodshop Days--Funerals--Mammoth Trip--First Day of School.

It all starts to run together and become a big blur.

I was certain that the first week of school would be slower but not so, and for a wonderful reason:  J & D proclaimed their Faith in Jesus Christ and asked for Baptism!  Wonderful Rejoicing!

And so, here are a few snapshots of the Summer (I promise not to bore you).
And the following post WILL be back to normal!

Blessings to each of you,

Poor Guys.
Not only did they have to Grill the Carne Asada for their Birthday Dinner,
they had to make their own Cakes.


 My Sister & I hosted a Birthday Party for our Husbands.
Want to guess just how old they are?


It's hard to believe these Twins are 
13 years old!
We had a fun evening of Softball with their friends and classmates 


You can't go Camping without
Hot Chocolate
and S'mores
-especially if the S'mores are
Peanut Butter Cup-Strawberry-Marshmallow Creme S'mores!

First Day of School
(Guess who is most excited!)

than to hear
that my Children
Walk in Truth."

It looks like it was a great summer!

Baptism is such a joyous event. Praise God.

Love the pictures of the smores. I'm intrigued with the combination of strawberries and peanut butter cups!
