the bunk beds.....

They are big aren't they?????? Another answer to prayer! Hosanna says she has slept the "best ever!!" Mercy is having fun climbing up and down the ladder, but her bunk is on the bottom. She is a little sad she can not sleep on the top.

Tonight we are having a "Fall Meal." I have wanted to do this for a few weeks but time has gotten away from me. It is necessary to have this because I have this recipe to Autumn Tea that is sooo good and if you have Autumn Tea you have to have all the special things to go with it!! We are making Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie, Fall Cookies and another dessert yet to be decided. For the main meal we are having BBQ Brisket, Grilled Chicken, Sweet potato casserole, and sauted' garden green beans and Bethany's homemade rolls.....is your mouth watering????? Surprisingly our fall garden is still going strong. Terry picked like 10 gallons of beans, 6 gallons of tomatoes and we are now getting spinach and swiss chard. Ok, back to the fall meal, David and Katelyn are coming too!!:)
Autumn Tea
5 tea bags
5 c. boiling water

5 c. unsweetened apple juice
2 c. cranberry juice

1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. lemon juice

1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

tea bags in boiling water and steep for 20 min.
discard bags and add remaining ingred.
serve warm or over ice (we do over ice)

School children are calling, better go and be a "teacher" now!

and......FYI........ If I had a million dallars, I would buy:

1) a billion forks and spoons
2) a zillion snow hats
3) a million coffee cups
4) a stock of toilet paper to last a life time
5) a trillion pair of socks in every size under the sun
6) a million light bulbs

Wow they are big! I can just imagine Mercy wanting to sleep on the top! So which girls sleep in there?

My Alyssa and I were looking... at the pics. Thanks for sharing. :)

Enjoy your fall meal. How do you stay so thin? I love sweets and find myself struggling. :(

The beds are gorgeous! I love the dark color. And if we lived closer you would have a knock on your door just before suppertime. ;o)

That's such a yummy, warm-n-cozy, really good fall meal...

I'm trying to eat more sweet potatoes and yams...

Can you give me your sweet potato casserole recipe??

The beds look fabulous and yes, they are big, compared to our white bunk beds. It looks just like a bunkhouse at a ranch!! Lol!

Take care, looking forward to that recipe.
