Valentine's Love

I didn't post on Valentine's day because it was a busy day. But we had such a fun evening! My husband and I went to a dinner hosted by some dear friends for our homeschool group and our kids went to a friend's home  for a game night  (also one of the couple's that went to the dinner).  So everyone was taken care of and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening.  At the dinner, some of the older daughters were the servers, so all of the adults could sit and visit and each course was brought out one at a time. During dinner, we took turns answering some  questions about favorite foods, best childhood memory, etc. and it was fun getting to know each other better.  After dinner, we separated into groups of husbands and wives and filled out a questionnaire with various questions about our spouse or ourselves and then joined together in one room to randomly discuss some of the answers to see if we got them right.  Then we took turns sharing where we honeymooned and that m

Crab Casserole for Dinner Tonight

I am venturing into new territory tonight for dinner...crab!  Or rather, imitation crab. I found out after I bought some (Trident brand at Walmart) that imitation crab meat is sort of not the best thing to eat. But I already had it and so we're going to try it. Have any of you ever eaten imitation crab before? I hope it's not too bad tasting. It is in a cheesy noodle casserole so hopefully that will disguise any off tones.  My recipe is based on a few that I perused online and then adjusted according to what I had in the fridge tonight. Casseroles are a great, forgiving and humble family weeknight dinner. I love them, personally. So warm and comforting and good! Crab Casserole 16 oz imitation crab (or real if your pocket book is so inclined) 2 cups cooked pasta noodles 1/2 cup cream cheese  1/2 cup feta cheese 2 cups shredded cheddar  2 cups seasoned bread crumbs 1 TBSP dried parsley 1 TBSP dried minced onion 1/4 tsp dried dill weed Mix all but noodles and crab

God and Creation are FACT

Did you see the Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye Debate the other day? It has been permanently archived at for anyone who might have missed it or wants to see it again.  I think Ken Ham conducted himself with grace and humility as each of us as ambassadors for our Saviour should.  He spoke with kindness, respect and patience. The only thing he is incorrect in, is his young earth theory. To disbelieve the existence of a gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:3 is contrary to clear Scripture.  This fact does not empower evolutionists, it merely states the truth. The Bible says the earth was without form, void and darkness was on the face of the deep.  I like  this article  on the subject.  Back to the Debate...Bill Nye's conduct was unapologetically cheeky and even petty at times. He wasted the precious minutes of his beginning monologue with a story about his bow tie. But it was his attitude and word choices that shadowed any respect he could have rendered from his audience. I lost c

99 Question Tag

Here are my answers to the 99 questions tag from Candy over at   I wonder what the 100th question was?  1:Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? Our closet is a regular door and it's off the master bath so it is usually open.  If it were a sliding door in our bedroom, it would be closed. 2:Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel? Sometimes. 3:Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out? Tucked at the foot but out on sides. 4:Have you ever stolen a street sign before? Absolutely not.  5:Do you like to use post-it notes? All the time. 6:Do you cut out coupons but then never use them? I rarely find a coupon for something I actually want or use. But I have actually cut some that I thought I'd use and then never did. 7:Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of a bees? Neither one, thanks. I often plan my life around avoiding places where ferocious ani

Making Home

Your home, no matter how big or small, should be the best it can be. The neatest it can be. The prettiest it can be. Within your budget and means, your home should reflect that there is a woman there who loves and cares for her family. I believe that women have been so very blessed to have this task.  Over the years, our homes have varied from little to much.  The "much" has come and gone with a few of our big cross country moves.  And so,  it seems my life is always changing.   Since I've been married, we have lived in three different states and five different homes - two owned and three rented.   With each one,  I have tried to make our home a cozy and comfortable retreat for my family.   Along the way I've had great opportunities for experience in  decorating different house layouts and rooms.  Curtains have become an important part of my decor. I like the way they can add color and instantly "warm up" a room. I have a big box of curtains and window tre

Superbowl Today!

We're going to a Superbowl potluck party at our good friend's house. I am still thinking of what side dish I'm going to bring. Probably a veggie tray and a plate of Jalepeno poppers. (Peppers stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. Yummo.) Hope you all have a great day!  I am so excited to watch my two home teams square off!   Go Broncos!!
