Strawberry Pie

July 24, 2011

Strawberry pie is a summer favorite around here. I had my first strawberry pie when dating Russ. He makes the best strawberry pie ever...Shhh, don't tell him, but I married him for his strawberry pies. 

Cook frozen pie shells according to the package directions. Place cleaned and quartered strawberries in cooked pie shell and set aside.

Looks good already!

To make the glaze, mix together in a sauce pan:
1 cup sugar
3 TBS corn starch
1 cup cold water
pinch of salt

Cook until clear and thick. 

Stir in 1 box of strawberry Jell-o.

Pour strawberry jell-o glaze mixture over the strawberries. Place in refrigerator until set. 

Serve with whip cream or ice cream....Yummy!

Brooklyn's 4th birthday

July 22, 2011

Last weekend we celebrated Brooklyn's 4th birthday. 

For those who don't know, here is the background information....

Brooklyn is my son, Holden's, first child. 

He and Kayla, his girlfriend at the time, made the choice to place her for adoption. Kayla holds a very special place in my heart. 

 Jen and Steve, her parents, chose to have an open adoption and we are all involved in Brooklyn's life.

Brooklyn has lots of grandmas to love up on her.

It's obvious she is well loved... 

 I won't say that it hasn't been without it's challenges...All families have their challenges. Adoption just has some different ones. I speak from experience because my two youngest boys are adopted. 

I will say this, even with the challenges that pop up, adoption is a wonderful thing ...

A book I highly recommend on adoption, is by Dr. Russell Moore, "Adopted For Life." 

Every child deserves a family. 

Is this a fail? Edit: On the right track?

July 13, 2011

Disclaimer....My feelings will not be hurt one bit. 

Do you think this quilt is a fail? Why or why not?


I really appreciated all the feedback here and on Facebook. =) 

Here is where it stands for now. I am trying to use only what is in my stash.

What do you think now??

My man is 50!

It was a fun surprise to wake up to this in our yard. He is adored by his nephews...

This card helped to soften the blow of being half a century. =)

Happy Birthday, Rusty. =)

Lost Island

July 8, 2011

We are joining with two families for a fun day at Lost Island Water Park to do a little of this

and a little of this

however, NOT this! 

I made a dress!!

July 5, 2011

And to tell the truth, I am quite pleased with myself. The dress is for Brooklyn, who is turning 4 very soon! Her mom knows I was trying to make it so I am not ruining a surprise. Besides, there are other surprises to go along with the dress. 

The pattern is called Kyla by Frog Legs and Ponytails.  

It's reversible! 

It actually wasn't too hard. I had to re and re-read the instructions several times, but only because this type of sewing is new to me. Now that I have made it once, making another wouldn't take very long at all. 

I can think of several other little girls that need a new dress. =) 

Sew fine

July 2, 2011

Viking got a tune up. She sews "sew" fine now....

Stay cool and enjoy your 4th of July!
