Sorry I’ve been absent so long! First, there was the craziness of having kids home for the summer, next came my son’s wedding, and, finally, the holidays. The trifecta of death for any personal blog, huh?

Hopefully, life will be a bit more predictable which will translate to more blog posts.

Here’s a few pics for your enjoyment showing what I’ve been doing during my blog “vacation.”

 

My third son completed his Eagle Scout project this summer.  He organized a collection drive and filled backpacks for children at local schools.  He was able to provide over 200 backpacks!

I visited a dear friend to attend her wedding in Utah, and I had to buy warmer clothes to survive!

I accidentally took home the wrong crockpot lid from Utah.  This one was too small, so I found a way to make do until I can switch back lids!

I was planning to have a big gingerbread party with all my friends and their kids, but I got sick.  A couple weeks after the planned event, I made a small batch of gingerbread, and my youngest son and I made our choice of gingerbread object.  He made a house, and I made a tree.

And, finally, we celebrated Christmas.  We gave gifts to express our love and to remember the first gift of Christmas, Jesus Christ.

I’ll be back soon with a fun food storage related post! I may not have been blogging, but I haven’t stopped preparing!

I am a happily married, stay at home mom with four sons, ages 24, 22, 18, and 14. I'm not a professional blogger, and I'm certainly not a foodie or a chef. But I like food, so I think I'm qualified to write about my own life experience with food. Want to be a little more prepared for the unexpected?
