Summing Up This Past Weekend

By Friday afternoon I had everyone here at the house. We ate, played cards, watched the Olympics, and loved on the babies! At one point during the evening,  I sat down in the rocker at the back of the living room. As I looked around, I just quietly thanked God for everyone in that room and for the times we are all together. 

Saturday morning Jared, Jenna, Marlow, Papa, and I went to Jared's favorite gun store. We had lunch after he did his shopping. Later, we all got back together at the house and had another meal.

Sunday's highlight was Jonah's baptism (previous post). We had lunch together at Justin and Keelie's. David cooked fish for the crew. 

Yep, faith, family, and food! What a great weekend!

Jonah's Baptism

Jonah was baptized this past Sunday. As an "almost 11" year old boy, he made the most important decision he will ever make in his life! He has such a big heart, and we love him dearly. We can't wait to see what God has planned for him!

The Garden


This year has been a good garden year (unlike last year). All the variables balanced out which allowed us to grow our own bountiful baskets. We have gotten about 75 cantaloupes, bushels of yellow squash, some onions, and just the right amount of okra. Jerry and I have given cantaloupes and squash to about everyone we could possibly pawn them off on! The only real disappointment this year were the tomato plants. For some reason they just did not do well!  Marilyn and I did manage to make salsa with some tomatoes we were given in addition to using what few puny ones we had.
