Nie Nie

I have to share my absolute favorite blog with you all. Nie NIe Dialogues Stephanie Nielson is the author of Nie Nie Dialogues.Her husband and her were in a plane crash in 2008 and they spent a long time in the hospital. You may have seen them on tv. They do quite a few interviews. I am always inspired when I read this blog and I know I can do all things when I see the things she has accomplished after going through so much. She will be adding to her family soon, Stephanie is pregnant. If you ever get a chance to stop by her blog, do it, its' amazing. I never go a day without thinking of Stephanie. If she could come through this with joy then I know I can get through anything with Joy too.

Luckily Pamela hooked me up with this fabulous Fall blog challenge or else my blog would never get the boost it needs. If you want to participate go on over here. Today is day 1 and you have to list some of your favorite Fall traditions. so here are mine:

Dallas Cowboys!!!!! I love the Cowboys, probably because of all the years I lived in OK but I love the Fall because it is the start of the NFL and for me it's all about the Cowboys.

I like that the leaves turn colors and I love sweatshirt weather. Although I spent 9 years living in HI and can't wait to be back, I am enjoying the Fall for now.

pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies.....and on and on and on.

The kids love their church activity that is their version of trick or treating. Although the costumes are always religious. They have a lot of fun.

Middle school football. Both my boys are playing this year and I can't wait to see the kids games. I love football of any kind and It's fun to watch the kids especially. My oldest plays for Greenville Christian college in Illinois but sadly I have to miss those games.

This is not my usual genre of book I read, and I have tried reading this at least 4 times over the years, but after watching "Camelot" on Starz, I got hooked on knights and castles. So I picked this book up once again and I will tell you by page 300 I was so hooked that I went on to read the second book "Drangonflies in Amber" and am now going to the library to grab the 3rd "Voyager." Now I know why these books are so popular. There are 7 in the series and I am on number 3. Who want's to bet I will read all 7 in a row lol!

Happy birthday to my daughter Kira 9/11/83 and happy birthday to my son Josh 9/11/85. Pray for our soldiers. Things are crazy right now over in A-stan and I kind of wished the US would of held off on all these memorial things until the war was over and our men and women were on safer ground. If you ask me and you read the news today, this is a recipe for disaster. I'm not trying to offend anyone, but if you have a loved one deployed right now you would know that 9/11 is not done and that all of these things are really making it hard for the soldiers over there. So sad. Praying for the US and our safety today.

School begins again

Well summer is coming to an end and it's back to school on Wednesday. I will miss the boys. They have had a lot of fun at the new park pictured above. We don't have long summers here in WA like we did in HI so we enjoy every day. I can't wait to get back to HI because summer is my favorite. Dominic is doing well in Afghanistan and we are doing well here but time is moving slowly. I'm sure once school starts it will be back to business. I volunteer at their school so that keeps me well occupied. Is everyone ready for the school year??

Blueberry muffins and tea

Made some blueberry muffins and had some with tea on Rae Dunn pottery of course
