Summer Adventures

I can't believe it's August 8th already! Summer is dwindling away fast and I am not quite ready for it to be over just yet. Back in July we spent a week in Myrtle Beach, SC. I really wish we were still there. Sand between my toes and sunshine on my face is just about my idea of perfection. Also this summer: we've had VBS twice, trips to the pool, sleepovers, cookouts and general summer fun. We'll end the summer with a trip to Gettysburg, PA for the Labor Day weekend. We can't wait!

Yesterday, we had a unique experience with our church. Instead of our usual Sunday service, we went for a river cruise on the Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat. We had a short service after our cruise and followed it with lunch and fellowship. It really was a perfect day!
I'm still looking forward to a few more adventures this summer and I hope you are enjoying yours as much as we are!
Happy Monday!

Life Lately

It's been a while since I blogged, but some things never change! It's snowing again. Although I usually like snow, it's April. We've had enough! Bring on the sunshine!

All three girls in school has given more free do laundry! Ha!

Stella missed the entire past week of school with a fever and nasty cough. Sadly, I think she shared it with a few of the other kids because I am hearing quite a bit of coughing this morning. :(

We are all so ready for summer and planning our vacation has been fun! A week at the beach is just what we all need. Too bad we have to wait until July! 

It looks like I'll be spending the rest of this weekend at home while everyone recovers from the latest virus. Hopefully by next week everyone will be feeling good and the weather will get warmer!

Happy Saturday!

The First Snow

It finally happened! We've been waiting forever for the flakes to fly and boy, did they fly! One minute, I was looking out the window and a few minutes later I looked out again and the entire neighborhood was blanketed in white. Of course it was already dark, but we still bundled up and went out to play in it. After all, somebody had to shovel the sidewalk. My inner child was jumping for joy!

Sick, Sick, Sick!

Twenty sixteen has not exactly started off great for us. With the first week in the books, the theme so far, seems to be a nasty cold! We've been sharing the germs around here and although Stella powered through the beginning of the first week back to school, she just couldn't make it today. I was pretty certain I would have my mini home with me after Madelyn told me, not only did Stella fall asleep on the bus ride home, but she was crying at lunch and had to find Maddie for some big sister lovin. I'm also feeling pretty crappy, so cuddling on the couch watching Nick Jr. is on the agenda for today.

I hope your first week is going better than ours!

{Easy} Pull-Apart Sticky Buns

Several years ago, I started making these sticky buns for our Christmas breakfast. They quickly became a favorite! So much so, that this year I also made them for our New Year's breakfast! They are simple to make and so delicious.

{You will need}
2 loaves of frozen bread dough (thawed)
2 tbsp. milk
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 small box of vanilla pudding (the cook and serve kind, NOT instant)

{To Make}
Spray a 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray. Tear the thawed bread dough into pieces and put them in the bottom of the pan. Melt the butter in the milk. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and pudding mix.
Pour over the bread dough and then let rise for about 2 hours.

Bake for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Remove them from the oven and invert onto a serving tray.

*My family likes their sticky buns plain, but if you prefer nuts (or raisins), you can add them to the bottom of the pan before adding the bread dough.
