Time for instafriday!!! We had a fun week!! The best part was my first born son came for a visit from up in MD, and his wonderful girlfriend came as well!! The Lord is writing a beautiful courtship story with them!! We even went on a "double date" together!!! I am so thankful for the good gifts the Lord blesses our lives with!! Hope your looking for all the good gifts He gives you each day!!

ok, here's the week in iphone pics!!!

life rearranged

started the week with making caramel apples!


I think Jeremiah is enjoying his a little!!

I have been trying to get a pic of this cats teal eyes, but this is all he would give me!

.......and like i said, a happy momma to have Caleb home ( with hat on)
I think his twin is too!

and here is my dad with 4 of his grandchildren!

 this is the children's playhouse, Josh waters the grass everyday!!!

I saw these Fan Potatoes on a Pinterest board and made them! yum!

this was a first!!! going on a double date with our son, Caleb and his wonderful gal, Kristen!!

I took a picture of this verse Friday morning.
One of the purposes of our blog is to share Christ,
to tell friends that He came to earth, lived a sinless life,
died for sinners and rose again from the grave!
Any who will call upon His name and repent of
their sin can be saved and given a home in heaven!
Have you?

Have a great weekend!!
thank you for stopping by!!

Yay for InstaFriday!

Your cell phone takes much better pictures than mine :-). I think my lens might be dirty.

So cute going on a double date. I hope my LO will do that with us when she's old enough for boyfriends!

Those Candy apples look so good!! I haven't done much reading of your blog. But I have enjoyed reading what I did get too. So sorry for your loss. Joel is precious, and definitely an angel looking over your family.
