PA part 1

At the end of last year, we made our way to Pennsylvania to visit both sides of the family.... I drove out with the kids... and it went so well, that I've already planned our spring trip out again. Although the hours in the van were long, there was something fun on the other end... time with grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousins....what could be more fun? We treasured all of the time with them... soaked up every moment we could...

Here's a look at some of the fun with the Pittsburgh side of the family (my family)...

Adventuring In Winter

Adventures become fairly scarce in wintertime around here... it's so much easier to hibernate. But when an adventure does happen, it needs to be documented... for it is SO good for the soul... for the wanderlust.

We've made our way out for a walk in Bricktown, Oklahoma City.... and down to Mt. Scott and the Wildlife Refuge. Both are places that we could have spent more time exploring, had it not been for the bitter cold. The sights were wonderful to take in... the fresh air was wonderful to breathe... and being out of the house felt freeing.

Merry Christmas 2015

Another year has come and gone... felt like it all happened in a blink. We are SO thankful to have Daddy home this year for Christmas, and Aunt Courtney added into the mix. It was an early morning, which means, early naps, which means early bedtime (right?) ...

For this Christmas, I wanted to attempt homemade cinnamon rolls... you know, homemade is the way to go... I was halfway through creating, when I read the part in the recipe that stated that it would yield 7 pans full of rolls... Thank you Pioneer Woman for not stating that in the first paragraph of the recipe  I was too far in, to turn around... so I ended up with 6 pans of homemade cinnamon rolls... We enjoyed 1 pan for breakfast, and then wrapped up the rest for neighbors and gate guards at our Air Force Base. At least it was a yummy mishap that others gained from...

Wishing you and yours a Merry and Bright Christmas... may you find comfort and joy in the great Hope of Christ!
