Our Anniversary

We had an Anniversary recently...we're still crazy about each other after all these years....
Hubby tells people we've been married since 1483...it really hasn't been that long although sometimes it may feel like it.  We had a great lay low weekend...I cooked...he ate it. What more can you ask for?

So cute!



Just wanted to post something light and cute...things have been so serious lately..it's nice to get a break....and this is so gosh darn adorable.
Sometimes doing the right thing is also doing the hardest thing you've ever done.   Some of you who know me well or have emailed me know what I am referring to.  I can't share anything right now but I do ask you to pray for myself and my daughter...pray for the Lord to give us guidance, patience and endurance to speak the truth so twelve others can understand. Someone we love needs to move on with her life and start to heal.  I believe the Lord puts certain people in our lives for a reason...nothing is an accident.

Never take anything for granted...ever. Kiss your loved ones and Thank God for your Blessings!

Wear your Pearls Girls.....




Today...I am going to don my pearls to clean my house and pay homage to the woman who raised the bar for the American housewife.....June Cleaver.  Won't you wear your pearls today too?

Barbara Billingsley 1915-2010....  thanks for the memories.

So sinfully easy.....


Wanna make a GREAT pumpkin cake? See the two ingredients above? That's all you need! Buy any boxed spice cake...I used Betty Crocker...and any regular size canned pumpkin, I used the above brand...mix the two ingredients...pour into a pan and bake according to the direction on the box for the size pan you used....then serve with Cool Whip or frost with Cream Cheese Frosting...sooooooo good!! So easy!

Do not, I repeat..do NOT add the oil, eggs etc that the box mix calls for...I know I know...the consistency will not resemble cake batter but TRUST me...it works in the end!

Today is my special day but we are celebrating tomorrow, I hope you are having a great week!

Catching up....


Hi Ladies...I am still here !  Look at the November issue of Country Sampler magazine..it is chock full of Christmas ideas! LOVE this magazine...I have to go pick up my copy this weekend.

Nothing very exciting going on this end...I am still without my own computer...lol.  We have been pretty busy with school, my Son had a Birthday and purchased a new electric guitar, Daughter has been pretty busy with choir and the outings that it entails....and..we are dealing with a sick kitty-cat.  Flynn...our newest fur baby has taken ill and I am taking him to the vet  again later today.  I am feeling rather guilty over this as he was very healthy before I took him for his initial visit to get declawed due to him scratching my furniture and rugs and doing some damage to them.  It seemed as if he took a bit longer to heal and was limping long after they said he should...so I took him back to the vet for a follow up...where they said it was normal...maybe he was more sensitive.....and now, a few weeks later..he can barely walk and is experiencing some new symptoms of an illness that is affecting his ears and nose as well as all the rest of his paws.  I hate to say it, but I think he was exposed to something at the Vet's office or he has a blood infection.

Flynn was the sweetest most rambunctious kitty before...and he just hasn't been himself....so this is what I am dealing with now.

We have been so busy here we haven't even had the chance to put out our Halloweentown display that we set up every year, I am hoping to get that up by this weekend...once all the errand running is complete....a new guitar means multiple trips to the local music store for "supplies" and so on....can't wait until my kids can DRIVE themselves. :)

We bought some funky looking pumpkins...hopefully my Daughter will upload the photos to her computer so I can share them with you next post!
Blessings to all for a Great Day!
