A favorite pie...

Years ago when we lived in Oklahoma a friend gave me a pie recipe from the tea room where she worked. It is a Peanut Butter Cream Pie. I enjoy making and sharing it with family and friends. Yesterday I made one as a surprise for a friend's birthday and another one for Joshua, my nephew, who came home today from a mission trip to Guatemala. I hope he shares it with us later tonight. I loved blessing others with this pie this week end!

Does your family have a favorite pie?

She worked really hard for this...

Colette has been trying really hard to not suck her thumb.  Her reward was to be an American Girl doll.  She was so excited the day she told me she had stopped and would be getting the doll.  Her mom surprised her yesterday!

Pre-K graduations are so cute!

Yesterday our sweet granddaughter, Ashlynn Kate,
graduated from Pre-K from First Baptist Church 

Every child had a cupcake that looked like them, with their name. So cute!

43 wonderful years!

In 1956 our family moved to a new house. I was almost 9 at the time. After the movers left I walked outside to look around at our new neighborhood. I sat down on a little slope in our backyard and was looking towards our neighbor's house when two boys, close to my age, walked up. One of the boys looked at me and said, "Get off Phil's property!" Now I didn't know who Phil was and I sure didn't think I was on his property! Turns out there was a property line dispute and this 9 yr. old boy took it upon himself to defend his friend's property. I jumped up and ran in the house, crying to my mom, telling her what had been said to me. That was many years ago, but I will never forget that day. I had no idea that I had just met the boy that would one day be my husband! It is a story we still laugh about!

I am so thankful to God that our family moved into that house in Ohio so that I could meet a little boy who lived across the street from me, become his friend and later on in life, his wife! I can't imagine a more wonderful life than the one we have together! I am thankful for all the memories we have made over the years and look forward to making many more.

Happy Anniversary Jim!
