Hobo Dinner Yummyness...

It's the weekend!!  Here is a fun recipe to make even if you are using an oven and are not able to cook this special meal over a campfire. Oh, that we could fix them that way all of the time...but, reality is we have to use the oven most of the time. :) Hobo Burgers.  (We added bacon to ours. Bacon does make everything better!)

Lakes, Ponds and Memories...

I wanted to share a guest blog post with you.
This blogger is super special to us.
He happens to be our oldest gentle giant.

The phrase that caught me in his post was this:
"My memories have become blessings."


It's The Little Things & Colt McCoy Beat The Cowboys...

We had a whirlwind weekend a week ago that was too fun to put into words. It started with these two wonderful people flying in to spend a few days in Dallas with us.  We all attended an incredible workshop on Sat. (Old School is the name of it. Remember that name because when this workshop comes close to your town you will want to go. It was incredible.)  We then played and ate and visited and shopped.   Wow. Every moment spent with our newlyweds and Wes is precious.  We are so blessed. This is the tranquil backyard of our friends that we stayed with. Lovely.
 THIS is their cat. Fluffy and gorgeous.
I realize that these are random silly pictures that really don't seem to have a link to each other. I guess I just wanted to show you the little things that made me smile.  God places incredible beautiful things everywhere around us to delight and awe.  There are so many more little happenings than big happenings in life. I like the saying  "Stop and smell the roses". Seeing…

The Secret Hideaway...

We escaped to our secret hideaway a few weekends ago. This lovely place also happens to be where this sweetie pie lives. Her and her brother were in a school play and we were blessed to be able to cheer them on and enjoy an evening of fun. The cousins enjoy some laughs...
A pumpkin you say? Yes- a pumpkin. We wanted to get him something and flowers for boys who do splendid acting just don't work. I say a pumpkin was genius. Funny too.
Our secret hideaway is also the place our new married son and wife spent the first month or two of their marriage. There are still sweet notes on mirrors around the place from her to him. Warms my heart.
 It won't be long until the lovely colors of plants and flowers will be no more. Enjoy.
One of the fun outings at the secret hideaway is arrow head hunting.
We seem to find one every time we go looking. Is that cool or what?!
Hope you enjoyed this little peek of our hideaway.
I also hope you have a secret place that you go to to refresh …
