It’s perfect for us. Even with that, we are getting ready to move, trying to at least. Not that we don’t love it any more, but trying to get moved 40-45 mins east closer to my family. Prayers for that! I’ll keep you posted!
  • Nov. 15th: Food on our table! We have been in some very tight finacial situations and have never gone a day without food! Thank you Lord!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

The Celebrating: For Britainy!

This past Sunday Aug. 10th we celebrated my niece Britainy’s 29th birthday which was on the 7th! Each person on their birthday get’s to pick their meal and their “cake”.

Britainy requested “Grandpa burgers”, (which usually the grandkids do), Bob Evan’s mac and cheese, jalapeno & cheddar mets and a dirt cake!  The rest of the meal she didn’t care.

“Grandpa burgers” are sirloin patties from a local market near my parent’s, Lehr’s Prime Market” and grilled with another local’s, Montgomery Inn, bbq sauce on them!  Then topped with cheese, if you want, and whatever toppings you like! Nothing fancy, but very delicious!

I got a little sidetracked again, so I didn’t get a lot of pictures but here’s a few!

Usually after our meal we do presents then cake! Today Finley was wanting “cake” so bad we went ahead and did the candles, singing and eating cake first!

Here's her dirt cake!

Of course Britainy needed help with the candles! Left to right: her sister Avery, her daughter Finley, Britainy and her cousin Janie!

The Celebrating!

Yesterday we celebrated my nephew Keegan’s birthday at my Mom & Dad’s! It was fantastic! Everyone was there except for Keegan’s girlfriend and her son!

Keegan requested “Grandpa burgers” (which usually the grandkids do), Bob Evan’s mac and cheese and a yellow cake with white icing! The rest of the meal he didn’t care.

“Grandpa burgers” are sirloin patties from a local market near my parent’s, Lehr’s Prime Market” and grilled with another local’s, Montgomery Inn, bbq sauce on them!  Then topped with cheese, if you want, and whatever toppings you like! Nothing fancy, but very delicious!

I got busy sidetracked with my young nieces Janie & Avery, great niece Finley and little great nephew Easton, and didn’t get pics of everything I was planning to take, but… here’s a few!

The girls “helping” Keegan with his gifts! They usually help everyone on every occasion, well, except Christmas! They’re to busy with their own then :)! It’s Keegan’s little cousin Janie (love her expression, she’s on the left)and little sister Avery!

Once again the girls waiting for the candles to be lit so they can “help” blow them out! Now Keegan’s little niece Finley has joined him! I guess in a couple years Easton will have to “help” everyone too!

It was a wonderful day of celebrating! I got to see and spend time with my whole family! Thank you Dad & Mom for everything, Mitzi & Mark, Tony & Bridget, Britainy & John, Keegan, Cassidy, Janie, Avery, Finley and Easton! Of course I also got to spend the day with my immediate family, so thank you Rudy & Audrey too!

I am so greatly blessed! Thank you Lord!
