My Littles and Easter {Strolling Down Memory Lane}

I found myself looking at our old Easter pictures and laughing and as always, wondering how the years have galloped along so fiercely in such a fast fashion.

We Visit Exploration Place

We had a fun daytrip and outing clear way back at the beginning of the year, when my family was here for birthdays and to see us and be with us. We visited Exploration Place. We were there when our kiddos were much younger. Neither one of them remembered it just a whole lot. I [Read On]

Spraying With a Sprayer

  I was out and about a bit, at about the same time as my farmer and his sprayer took off on their maiden voyage spraying wheat on our farm. I wandered over to the field and took some pictures. I enjoy it when it works out for me to snap farmy photos. Many times [Read On]

I’m EXCITED!!! I made a wreath. Well, kind of.

When Cookie Dough and a Kitchen Aid Mixer Catch Your Eye, This is What You Get

I walked away from my mixer. Not always the smartest thing for a cook to do. But then I’m far from the smartest. Fact is, I’m pretty simple. I knew that my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe was a big one. I knew it filled the mixer up pretty good. But the dough needed to [Read On]
