You Are Blessed

You are blessed, not just with what you need for today, but with everything that matters for all eternity. You are blessed, not just with good things, but with the best of all God has to offer. You are blessed, not just because you're alive, but because you're loved by One who's Life Himself.

Making Pies

The other day, Lydia, went down for a nap and I decided to do some baking.  I had a basket of apples needing to be used, and seeing it was close to American Thanksgiving, I thought I would make a couple of pies; pumpkin and apple. :)
Apple and pumpkin pies, hot out of the oven.
Making the pie dough. Don't have a rolling pin? No worries! :) Use the side of a cup; works great!
Smooth Pumpkin filling.
Pour into shell for pie #1
In the process of cutting and pealing the apples.  BTW, if you've never tried using Rada knives you should! Graham bought me a few awhile back and I love them! We also had them when I was growing up.
Pouring the carmel type filling over the apples. Delicious.
This little darling slept the whole time so I was not only able to finish the pies, but I also got to clean the kitchen and get a good start on supper prep for later.  Love this baby girl! :)

Three Years :) :) :)

Three years ago I married Graham, the love of my life and best friend.  The first three years have been amazing.  Lord Willing, I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him! God has blessed us so much I am so thankful He brought us together. Here are a few pictures from our wedding day. :)

 So happy then, (and even happier now)! :):) God is good!

Doesn't this look delicious?! Steak, (grilled to perfection), with sauté mushrooms, the best scrambled eggs you could ever eat, (made with cheese, cream, and green onions) raspberry yogurt, two chocolates, and chocolate milk. The picture is not sharp, but trust me, it was really good! :)

What made it better was that it was made by my husband, and brought to me in bed this morning. :)And this isn't the first time he has done this for me; he treats me better than a queen.  I am spoiled and don't deserve such a amazing man, but I sure am thankful for him, and love him so very much!  Thank you Graham, you are the best!
