Ecclesiastes 5:18

"...Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8

This is my place to come to help me to 'think on these' wonderful things in my life!

"Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, that is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life." Ecclesiastes 5:18

I am so thankful that I can enjoy the life God has given us with my husband and our children!

Day in the life

what happens when you leave your big pan
filling up with water for soaking and forget it?
The above picture should give you an idea :P

Apparently, this is Kayleigh's tree.

Kayleigh and Zoe helped Daddy a lot changing the brakes :)

These were pretty yummy! The dough was even yummier!

Making Gummies! (pt 1)

Christa got a kit for Christmas. It's only April. It didn't
take us too long to do it!

Christa loved being the star of the show!

The seaweed was apparently the secret ! The carageenan
came from the seaweed and that made the gummies have
their great special texture!
