"A home is no home unless...."

" contains food and fire for the mind as well as for the body."
~Margaret Fuller

About once a week, we spend time visiting with my sister and Eloise at my dad's garage/waiting room. It's a sort of *central* meeting place...since our mom's office is located well as Chris and my dad are there working. My children enjoy time playing (I dread the day they outgrow these beloved toys!)...

Jaxson and his helmet...for safety! You never know the high speeds this racer might hit on his travels!


At home...

Two loaves of Amish White Bread...

We have a busy day, here today. Errands to run and much to accomplish. No time for me to dawdle, here! I hope you are enjoying your week! :)


Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

  1. Hi Katy!
    You mentioned a bit back about not having a good whole wheat bread recipe, and I didn't get a chance to comment then, so now I will :-)
    I have a GREAT one that I use, its from the back of a four bag, and I posted it here:
    Might have to cut and paste that. Follow it exactly, I've rushed it before and its not nearly as light and airy.
    Have a great Day!

  2. I love that your sister makes a point to come and visit weekly. Having a close family is such a blessing!

  3. Looks like your make your favorite meal again. I copied the recipe and should try it soon. My daughter had the same red bettle car when she was younger (she is 13 now); I still have it also.

    Have a good weekend!

  4. Lovely photos, beautiful children, blessed days to you & yours.

  8. They grow up way too fast. They look cute in their cars. The baby and the hat are both adorable.
