Home for the holidays!

My son, daughter in law and grand babies! 

Brooklyn fell right before they left for pictures....left a mark...poor baby!

She is still so pretty!

Of course, Thomas is looking all ornery....hehe!

Tried to get a picture of Brooklyn to match the one of Thomas last year...

 Pretty close, I think!

So happy I was able to get home and decorate!
I thought we'd still be in a motel for Christmas.

I love my Christmas trees!

My word for 2014 was Joy.....and I experienced so much of it thanks to God's goodness!

Where I started walking this Fall. Twin Lakes, Greensburg, Pa!

Fun Pumpkin Patch day with my family & friends!

Thomas hunting for the perfect pumpkin!

Brookie and I having fun waiting for the pumpkin hunters

I had to make a trip home for a Thirty One meeting. This is the view from my living room window.

The view from my front porch.

More photos from Twin Lakes.
What a blessing to get to walk here every day!

View from my prayer bench.

I have been making a few cards too. I'll post my last Fall and the Christmas cards I started later.
Enjoy the beauty God has given us before it is all gone!

Pilgrim Owls

Deedee has outdone herself with these adorable Pilgrim Owls!

I had so much fun playing with the colors and prints on them.
My friend, Sandy combined the two pilgrims for me, and I love how
the cards turned out!

Sandy and I were also discussing the lack of Fall printed papers this year.
I found these at Hobby Lobby, but that is all I saw!
Hop on over to Deedees Digis to see the complete set.
Includes images, paper and sentiments.

It is called Little Birdie and comes with 
3 outline images, 3 pre-colored images, 
3 white-filled layering images, and 6 sentiments

Added a frame, sentiment and button here.

A piece of ribbon and a couple buttons added for fun.
I think these cards will be great for friends far away !

Royal Tea

I went home for a week to finish up and oversee the Ladies Meeting at our church.
It was exhausting, but very rewarding! 
God blessed our ladies and spoke to many of us through His Word! 

The gift table

Communion table

Tea bag toss....one of the games we played

Special music. My wonderful DIL has an amazing voice!
She sang two specials and led the theme song.
I'm so glad I have a DIL that serves the Lord!

We set up some photo props for fun!
This is my niece Oliva! She loved the photo props!

Ladies from our church signed up to decorate tables.
We had everyone vote for the best table on Saturday, and then the ladies
who decorated that table won a tea for 4 at a local tea shop.

This was the winning table.

All the tables were so pretty!

I got a pic with my pretty grand daughter, Brooklyn!

There she is again with her Mommy. Don't you just love the
teapot bib and teacup headband I found for her?

After the sessions on Saturday we served a tea for the ladies.
We had many varieties of tea, and some goodies!

Chicken salad on croissants, cucumber sandwiches, and pinwheels for savory items

Sarah made pumpkin snickerdoodle scones,
Mom made fudge puddles, and I made sugar cookie fruit cups.
We bought some mini brownie bites to add to the dessert tiers.

The ladies said everything was yummy!
I'm so thankful for my daughter, and my friend Grace who made 
the sandwiches and put together the servers during the last session!

My niece, Meadow, in her princess gown. We are children of the King of Kings!

Ladies enjoying looking at the tables and voting.

Cheyenne made me stop for a minute and snapped a picture
with Brookie.

Some of our ladies, and Mrs. Kelly Johnson who was one of our speakers.

Some more of our ladies.

Mrs. Pam Biter and some of the ladies from her church.
Also some of our ladies, and Sara Tennant, our other speaker.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
