Skewered Shrimp and Vegetables

I had been wanting to try making some kind of kabob for awhile and finally got around to it not long ago. I enjoyed making them, they turned out tasting very good! :)

Ready for the grill.

For our skewers I used shrimp, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions, and I also added chicken. The recipe below will make 4 large skewers.

3/4 c. olive oil
1/3 c. lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. sugar
1/2 t. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp
1 red onion
8 mushrooms, halved
8 grape tomatoes

Combine everything and use as a marinate for meat and mushrooms. Grill kabobs and Serve with hot rice. :)

Two Little Ones

These two little people were so happy to be playing outside today! It's been nice to have
warm weather again! We have been busy with all kinds of fun stuff, reading books to Abby, teething (William has two teeth so far), playing, training, learning, growing, :) etc. Their Mommy has learned that these two can move quickly and get into trouble so fast it's hard to keep up sometimes:)........

...Like the time they were caught playing in the toilet. lol, Yes, I actually took the time to take their picture before washing them up. I figured it would be something to show them when they get older. :)
Or the time Abby thought the wall looked like a good place to use crayons. Willy's expression, along with the fact that Abby was pointing at the wall and repeatedly saying "No No!, No No!!" as I took this picture makes me laugh when I look at it. (btw, Ajax worked wonders on removing the crayon, for which I was very thankful:)).

Wherever Abby is, William is never far away:). Here they are trying to empty out a container of milk powder before I got to the kitchen one morning.

The two little partners who are loved very much around here.:) All the crazy, amazing, tired, precious, busy moments add up to something beautiful. God is good, and we are enjoying life.

His Strength

It is not as much what happens, but how we take it that is important. God is watching to see whether we allow the problems to defeat us, or whether we will go through them in His strength, being made stronger for the next problem and ultimately for the final end battle.

Everything that happens to us in life is training for the work we will do next.
