Week in Review

Last Sunday was my middle child’s 14th birthday so I had asked a girl we go to church with to make him a cake to surprise him with before Sunday School.  She came up with this really cool camouflage design. After church we went to eat (he chose Burger King) and then to the movies to […]

Sunday Blessings

I love Sundays.  Not only do I get to go to church but I also get the pleasure of buying my Sunday paper from this sweet young lady who sells in a parking lot near my church. I always buy 2 or 3 papers if there are good coupons (which I decide by reading the […]
