Ooo. That recipe sounds yummy! Can't wait till we have cold weather here so I can enjoy it. Would you believe we're in the 90's?

Congrats on your awards--you deserve all of them. :o)

I love to have my 4-year old and 2-year old watch sports with me. But I don't like football, a little basketball and definitely not baseball.

(Sorry if I offend you for writing that.)

The kind of sports I watch is ... well, UFC -- ultimate fighting championship. And I know I have to kick the habit.

"Daddy," my 4-year old would say. "Are you watching violent again? Do what Mommy do. Watch chick-flick."

Have a great weekend.

Now THAT'S a recipe I may have to actually attempt! It sounds soooo good.
Hope all is well with you and yours. How's Joe doing? I know he's as ready to come home as you are to get him there!

This cider sounds delicious! We'll try it out soon. (Probably at our homeschool trunk and treat). Thanks for sharing.

Hey. It sounds like you girls are doing well. So, Kayla is a sports fan! She'd enjoy watching our Bethy play catcher in select fast pitch softball, 12 and under! Are you feeling well? How's Joe.

Love to you, all 4!!

That sounds just what I need because right now I have larengitis (sp?) although I have no slow cooker...sadly! I wonder if it would make on the stove?

I hope it was ok I mentioned Kayla in my post, you didn't mention it when you commented, I really hope it was ok!

Karen said...

What a wonderful recipe, I can't wait to try it! Thank you so much for mentioning my give-away. See why you were given the Nice Matters award? :) And an especial thank you for your prayers for Micah today. We're just hoping for a conclusive test.

I am going to "steal" this for our church anniversary celebration coming up! That video of Kayla is too cute. You're raising her right to love baseball like that. We're a unique group. (Even if you do root for the Red Sox. :)
