Spring seems to be here....I pray it stays this way. It is one of my favorite seasons:) I think they are all my favorite seasons. By the time one is near over, I'm ready for the next one. They are all a blessing from the Lord.

School seems to be going by pretty fast....YAY! I (God willing) will graduate in May! I will be an LPN. Prayers are appreciated for God to open the doors He wants me to walk through. My hubby just got his Journeyman's liscense:) We are so blessed! He took and passed his test the first time. I also pray I can do that (the first time). The boys are ready for summer. They aren't big fans of school either. But....I tell them there are some things we have to do and we shouldn't complain. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, Colossians 3:23

So we are very ready for spring/summer. We love to go to the lake, spend days outside, grill, get together with family and friends, garden, play in the water, sit in the swing....just enjoy the blessings outside for a nice change.

Hope you all have a blessed day.

Just wanting to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Hope you are enjoying this magical month. I love to spend more time with my family and friends, remember our traditions, cook, watch Christmas movies and listening to my Christmas music. This is my absolute favorite time of the year. I wish we could celebrate it longer...lol. People just seem to be more caring this time of the year. I think it should last all year long:)
Hope you all have a blessed Christmas!

~~And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Luke 2:8-20

Summer Schedule

So...I find myself being lazy. And so very hard to get up and do the things I know I need to do around the house. I don't want to waste this summer. I don't want to give the kids free range and let them watch t.v. or play the wii all. day. long. I want to make a schedule for me and the kiddos. I just don't know where to begin.
How do you make a summer schedule?? What are some of the things you do on a daily basic to make sure your house work doesn't get behind??
Anything will be helpful....

A Little Bit Of Autumn

This post is really an Autumn post. However, I just couldn't help myself.
The other day, I made some pumpkin pancakes with warm, maple syrup. Oh my, they were simply amazing.

Here's the recipe:
~2 cups all purpose flour or you could use half wheat flour
~2 tbs brown sugar
~1 tbs baking powder
~1/2 tsp salt
~1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
~1 1/2 cups milk
~1 cup pumpkin puree
~1/2 cup eggs (I think that's about 2 eggs)
~2 tbs oil

Mix dry ingredient, then in a separate bowl mix wet ingredients, then mix all together.I got the recipe from http://my.hearthealthyonline.com/recipe/pancakes-waffles/pumpkin-pancakes/

I hope you all enjoy them. They made me think of Fall. Don't get me wrong, I'm very glad it's summer time. I love the lake, camping, gardening, grilling, late nights with friends....but Oh, how I love Fall~~The beautiful colors of the crisp leaves, pumpkins, cooking...lots of baking, coffee, pumpkin patches, scarecrows, and so much more.

So are you all reminiscing of another season??
He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:3

Summer Once More:)

Once again it's been a long while since I've posted. I wish I had more time to spend on the blog, but most of the time, I just don't. I do enjoy reading all of yours though:) I hope all of you are having a good summer so far. It has just begun.

We are very excited about this summer....we got a "new to us" pop-up camper! We have wanted one for years and found one for a GREAT price. It is a 1974 and looks brand new in 1974! It looks absolutely amazing and we can't wait to take it out. We actually went to the lake this weekend. The water is extremely high still, from all the rain we had a few months ago. Reservations have been cancelled till the middle of June. I am really hoping that the water level goes down, so we can go camping. It really is one of our family's greatest adventures!

The kiddos still have school till the first week in June. That's unusual, but they missed some days due to the snow we had. Let me tell you....they are so ready to be done with school...lol. Who's not though? I was always ready for school to be out.

Well, I need to get started on this huge pile of laundry. Hope you all have a very blessed day.

~The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14
