{It's Almost August}

 Hello Sweet Sunday Afternoon! Where in the world has July went? In a few more days we will be venturing into August and I feel the summer is passing quickly. I want to say that several have pointed out blogger issues from me. Some of you are getting that I am a non-reply blogger. I have no clue why. Some of you are not able to see my pictures that I post and I have no clue why. I have had so many issues lately with blogger. Any old ways I will try again today and we shall see what happens. You should be able to find my little old blog over at too. Just type in Creationsbycindy in the search box.  What have you ate good lately? We let me say that we have ate quiet well this week. I whipped Marty and I up a Chicken Fajita bowl this week served over brown rice. It was so good and favorable.  I took some leftover breakfast bacon and made myself a BLT using fresh tomatoes out of my garden. YEP, more tomatoes than bacon I think. But oh so good.  Of course I had to have a l

{Christmas Hodgepodge}

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday as I did. I just can't hardly believe a brand New Year is almost upon us.  I love doing Christmas with these girls! From left to right....oldest daughter, middle daughter and baby daughter. And there is nothing better than GRANDBABIES ! I totally understand the sentence, "I wish I could have had them first".  These sweet babies not only fill our laps but our HEARTS !  Nothing like the love of family. We are so very blessed. Speaking of Christmas, let's have a little Christmas hodgepodge. Inquiring minds want to know..... 1:  Did you receive a gift this year that you will re-gift next year? 2: Did you give a gift this year that you received last year? 3:  On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the Grinch and 10 being the Elf ...where would you come in at here with Christmas cheer? 4: What was your favorite food or dessert item you ate during the Christmas holidays at a par

{Christmas Time's A Comin'}

Christmas is almost here...And POOF it will all be over but the cleaning up! But even with all the cleaning up, packing away and turkey sandwiches for a week, I still love this time of the year. Don't you?  I think Santa has already came to Nana and Papa's house though. I bought myself a little Christmas present too...DON'T YOU LOVE MY NEW PLATES?  I was so excited when I found these at Ross. I snatched all 8 of them up faster than you can spit!  They look so pretty with my red chargers and Christmas dessert plates.   I decided to use my old bread bowl that was gifted to my by my grandmother. Her daddy, my great-father actually carved this old bread bowl. I need to try and restore it. Some paint got spilled on the inside years ago and it's cracking. But it worked beautifully for a centerpiece.   I love the red and white napkins nestled in the goblets.   My runner this year is three poinsettia place-mats.    My l

{Chewy Cake and Cookie Party}

TIME for our annual "Nanny Conner Chewy Cake party" . Our chewy cake tradition actually began after my motherinlove passed away and she was the reason my daughter's wanted to start this tradition for any of the girls in the family that would like to be a part of our "Chewy Cake Party".    You have to know the story behind the reasoning for "Chewy cake" so let me share.  Every year during the Christmas holidays my motherinlove would bake chewy cake. She loved to bake it but I think what she loved even more was giving her chewy cake to others to enjoy.    Each year for Christmas at the Conner Christmas Eve party you could expect to receive a gift of chewy cake from Nanny.   It started out many, many years ago where each person in the immediate family would get a gift from Nanny but over the years as the children began to be born, then the grandchildren and then the great-grand children...well needless to say with such a large gr
