Michael bar the door

Michael took a shower in our bathroom the other night and when I went in there later I discovered this. I asked him why he did it and he said it was because he was scared. That's the door to our closet that's inside the bathroom. Both kids are really scared of what might be in our closet. Bless their hearts!

Nothing Much Going On Here

I just don't have anything to blog about! I don't like not getting a post up every now and then so here's a cute pic of the kids way back when! I just ordered Mallory's 9th birthday party invites so the years are going way too fast. And this little boy had a friend spend the night last night so that tells you how big he is getting!

Sanctuary Remodel

We've just completed the remodel of our sanctuary in East Prairie at the First Church of God. We had dark paneled walls, blue carpet and orange pews so it needed a facelift. We took the pretty stained glass windows out of the old sanctuary and refitted them in the current one. Really looks lovely.
Here are a few pictures to show the changes. I need to post some before pix. Will try to do that soon. We are so thankful to the Lord for providing us with such a nice new updated sanctuary!

A few treats

I have made a few treats this week so I thought I'd post some pix.

I made these treats for Mallory's class to celebrate their teacher's birthday. Mrs. Sipp is pregnant with their third child and is supposed to find out the gender this Friday. Her birthday is Saturday so I thought I'd tie it together.  I put one of each cookie in little celo bags. The choc ones are choc covered Oreos. The others are ritz crackers with peanut butter between dipped in white bark. 

These are supposed to look like sombreros. I made up over 100 for our kids' ministry fall kick off tomorrow night. It's the Nacho Ordinary Kick off party!

This is just a white cake with white icing that I made to take to some friends' house on Labor Day.

When we first got to East Prairie we noticed all of these irrigation type things around in the crop fields. I asked some one what they were called and they said they were pivots. These pictures were taken from out back porch. I think it's so pretty to see a pivot in the middle of a field spraying it's water.
