has it really been that long?????

I have missed my blogging, maybe I can get back to it this fall, although there may be no readers anymore since I last posted in May! You faithful readers will come back I hope. :)

We have had quite the summer, our family (the 3 of us) vacationed together for 2 months. What a blast! We started out in Georgia, drove to Michigan, then Illinois, then to Iowa, Adam and I even went to California for 10 days just the two of us, it was simply heaven!

I will leave you with a few pics of our summer....

Abby's LOVE'S the water any way she can get it.

Lovin' on cousin Zeke.

Watching the baby chicks at the Iowa State Fair.

Soooo much fun on the giant slide. We had not even gotten all the way to the bottom and she said, "AGAIN"

2 year well check

Abby passed her "well check" with flying colors! She is 3 feet tall and 32.6 pounds, putting her in the 95th percentile for both. She is talking up a storm as well. Dr. Jackson said she is ahead of the curve (of course I knew that, look who her parents are) HA! She is sooo smart and we are just loving getting to watch her grow and change everyday.

I am going to post some pics later today or tomorrow so stay tuned.......

Made this for dinner, YUM! They go perfectly together. :)

Gone too long!

So ever since I got Facebook I have seriously neglected my blog, well no more, I am back, oh faithful readers.

For starters I made this for dinner last night and it was amazing!

I used baby spinach instead of the brocoli rabe and only 2 cloves of garlic. BIG hit with Abigail!

Speaking of Abby, she is going to be 2 at the end of the month, I seriously can't believe it! She is talking all the time, full sentences and has a mind of her own. Soo independent. I will get a few pics of her up here soon.

Stay tuned for more info from Straw World! :)

Heaven is for real!

I read this book in two days, (probably would have read it in one sitting if I was still single and childless) it is a MUST read. You will laugh and cry at the same time, you will have chills and goose bumps.

I know I believe in heaven and one of the things I look forward to most is seeing my mom again, this book affirms my hope of reuniting under one beautiful rainbow in heaven with her.

Sometimes we lose sight of the big picture and get caught up in the everyday, this book reminded me what we are living for, for eternity with God. We all go thru times when we are in need of reminding of how great God is, of how much we are loved by God and how awesome His plan is for us. This book gave me just the pick me up I needed. I believe all things happen for a reason, if you are reading this blog you should read this book,if nothing else it will make you think, it may draw you back to God where you belong, it could change your life forever.
