{Life Is A Precious Gift}

  Good Sunday Afternoon everyone. Hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend. I posted last on May 8th...I think...Seems like so much has happened since then. I am going to try and catch up this week with my blogging friends. Wanted to share a few fun pictures since I have last posted. These little girls sure enjoy fishing with papa. Our six year old granddaughter pulled in her fish all by herself and was so proud. The four year old eats more bread than she lets the fish have! LOL!  We had a nice harvest of potatoes. Some still had  few green spots but I can cut those off and we are good to go. I've already roasted potatoes and made potato soup. Mashed potatoes are up next.  Marty and I had a day date recently and stopped at Maple Street Biscuit. My, my! Now this is a biscuit and so yummy.  I was doing some baking for a fund raiser and decided since I was on a roll with the baking I would make Marty a fresh raspberry and lemon loaf cake drizzled with lemon glaze. It turned out

{Making Memories}

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Our family sure did. Just a few pretty desserts on our Thanksgiving table. We had so many desserts and as always lots of good food. With a family of over 50 in attendance you better have lots to eat huh?   My husband says every year that Thanksgiving is his most special time of the year. His reasoning; No one seems to be in a hurry. Everyone actually takes the time to visit. No one expects something from you. And....the food is GOOD!  My whole heart stands in this picture.   We also celebrated this granddaughter's 10th birthday. She is now DOUBLE DIGITS!  She is such a sweet girl and has a heart for Jesus. Makes this Nana proud.   We also celebrated with these two grands for harvesting two nice bucks. My granddaughter Mallory and grandson Conner showed up the adults with their deer hunting skills. In one of the pictures is their great-grandfather AKA 2-Pa and of course the other picture is

{Just a Thrifting, Partying and Feasting}

There's a little girl In the neighborhood Her name is Cindy Conner And her thriftings looking good.... Now I will be singing the John Anderson song, "Just a swinging" the rest of the day. LOL!  It's been a while since I have been thrifting and decided to do a little. So glad I did. I found the cutest little snack plates with matching cups. A service for 8 matter of fact and for $16. YES, you read correctly. 16 bucks for a service for 8 and not a chip one on any piece. MY KIND OF THRIFING! I know thrifting isn't a real word. But it's my word now cause I made it up! LOL! Then I found these cute snack plates too. I have these exact ones. Matter of fact I have several different patterns of snack plates. They didn't have the cups to match but I also have tons of little clear cups that I can use.  They had 8 of these plates for a total of $2.99. Not $2.99 each...but all 8 for $2.99! Girls, I cannot pass up a deal like t

{Tea Cup and Mug Exchange} So much fun!

I joined the talented and gifted Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose blog for her tea cup and mug exchange. This was my 3rd time of participating and it was so much fun. Stephanie will be posting on her Blog about the exchange on Wednesday so be sure to hop over there this week and visit.   Linda from  was given my name to send a teacup too.   She went above and beyond and needless to say, I could not wait to open my package when it arrived. It felt like Christmas opening up all those sweet packages. I am in love with my new tea cup! Isn't she a beauty? And of course I named her, "LADY LINDA" . Just look at all the sweet things that Lady Linda sent to me! Look at that precious Dress Dish Towel she made for me! So, so cute! It was so nice to make a new blogging friend and I truly do enjoy our exchanges. I was given Margie's name to presen
