Randy & Kelly are getting married in December and Kelly's bridal shower was yesterday. This was her cake. My FIRST time ever doing roses.. I started practicing only 3 days before and believe me the verse that says "I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me" was never more true than this weekend. Yes, God will even help you make roses. Cant wait for another reason to practice some more.

Have had a wonderful weekend,, busy but good. I'm linking up with ChrissieGrace for Make some Art Monday. Okay, i know it may be stretching it a bit to call this art, but the theme was quotes and I do love some quotes. I had a brand new project in mind, but life and a bridal shower and other things had to come first. So im posting a previous quote item i've done.. "Live Simply, Love greatly, Laugh Readily, Speak Kindly And leave the rest to God". Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go on over and say Hi to Chrissie and check out all the other posts linked up.

Sandy Alexis Mann ~ October 2001 - October 2009
We lost a much loved family pet this morning, her name was Sandy- Sandy Alexis Mann is what the kids named her. A yellow lab. She was perhaps the best dog in the world, at least to us she was. We got her for the kids as a Christmas present in
19992001. She was the family dog but she bonded with Jeff. He took up time with her and taught her to sit, speak, and fetch. And she knew what it meant when you told her "daddy's home", she would run and start looking for his truck to pull in. She was so smart and loveable and loyal and was always carrying something around in her mouth, whether it was a sock, a leaf, a ball or plastic bottle. I know she loved us as much as we loved her. I've never been a dog person until we got her. She was more than a dog she was part of our family and she'll never be forgotten

The Shanty2Chic girls are having a "I did it without my hubby" party.
This is a memo/photo holder that I made awhile back for my daughter. I really needed to cut the boards and make them all even and such, but I didnt want to ask "him" for help so I just laid out the boards and stapled them together and then modpodged the whole thing with brown paper. After all that glue and paper it held together really good.

From one pumpkin to another!!!!!!! A woman was asked by a coworker,
'What is it like to be a Christian?' The coworker replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.'
God picks you from the patch, brings you in,
and washes all the dirt off of you.
Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed.
Then He carves you a new smiling face and
puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.'
Have a wonderful and blessed Fall season!

I found the recipe for this apple pie at the pioneer womans blog. It sounded simple enough. So i thought i'd give it a try tonight. When the pie crust would not roll out and was entirely too crumbly (before it was baked) I thought for sure that i had really goofed and wasted alot of stuff for nothing. But I shouldnt have worried, i kept right at it, pieced the crust together into the pie plate,, and you'd never know it, except that I just told ya.. but anyway,, this pie was delicious. A little different than the same ole apple pie.. and it has yummy caramel topping. Oh so good!
