My life is ever approaching the empty nest time of life. Now, I spend my time spoiling grands, exploring making crafts, reading and my church. My blogposts will most likely be about these things in my life. Also book reviews and contests as love reading. Hope you will enjoy your visit and come again to see what is happening here.
I know what you are thinking, those pies look like pecan pies and I am told they taste like it too. I was a bit skeptical when I first read about these but after reading the recipe and directions on a blog I read I am thinking they are worth a try. Stephen and I plan on trying them and thought you might want to try them too. I am linking to the blog where I got the recipe because the picture above and the recipe is hers. Go check out her blog and if you try the pies let me know what you think. I will post a picture and review of ours after we make them. The blogpost and recipe can be found at: http://simplyhomemaking60.blogspot.com/2011/11/oatmeal-pie-poor-mans-pecan-pie.html God bless, Pat

You can choose which print you want from his facebook page http://www.facebook.com/Jonathan.Studio13Photography To be entered once leave a comment on this post(have to do this one first) and let me know which print you want if you win and click like on his page. For other entries (1 for each of these that you do and let me know in comments what you did), facebook this giveaway, blog about it, tweet about it. If you do all you get 3 extra entries.

When I was a kid, we got together as a family all the time. I don't just meant the people in my house but I mean all my family. We got together to share, laugh, eat, the kids played and the adults talked. It was wonderful. But times change, people grew older, moved away and those times were over. You hardly ever hear much about such things anymore. People have to much to do, too many places to go and are scattered so far apart. I am blessed to have one son still at home and one who is married but just lives across the street from me. We share lots of times together but one of my favorites is Sunday night get togethers. I am not sure when or how it started but every Sunday night we eat together as a family. We alternate who does main dish and who does sides. But the food is not the best part though it is always good. The best part is laughing, talking and sharing. The best part is watching and being with my grands. They know who I am and how much I love them. …
It has been a whirlwind last few days and I would not have missed them for anything. We had church on Tuesday night so Jenny and I went to the church Wednesday night to have a marathon baking party. I don't have an oven so I go to the church that has two and can be done in just a little while.

They got here later that night after spending Wednesday and Thursday after spending time with his family first. We ate leftovers for supper and geared up for shopping. Next came the formerly called black Friday shopping and went to Walmart about 9 o…
