Cherry Crunch

This recipe is one that has been passed down from my Grandma and her sister.
It is such a simple one to make, but quite delicious!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spread cherry pie filling in a 9X13 pan.
Follow with crushed pineapple.

 Melt two sticks of margarine.

Sprinkle a yellow cake mix on top of pie fillings and swirl into it with a fork
Pour melted margarine in with it and continue swirling the cake mix in with the fruit.

Chop 1/2 cup of walnuts.

 Sprinkle walnuts on top of cake mixture.
Bake for 60 minutes.

Best served right out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream.

Christmas 2011

It is so hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone and the year 2012 is right around the corner.

God has been so good to my family this year - 

we saw many answers to prayer, 

and He blessed us beyond measure.

My cup runneth over.

 Many of our Christmas traditions were skipped due to Christmas falling on a Sunday. 

However, spending Christmas morning in church and celebrating the birth of our Savior with other Christians proved very memorable.

 It was a joy looking out from the choir loft at all the visitors who had chosen to come to church.

 Preacher brought a wonderful sermon on the greatest gift ever given to mankind...
the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. 

 I hope you all had a blessed holiday, for truly this is the most wonderful time of the year!!

A Family Affair

Baking Christmas Goodies:

Always a fun affair!

We have compiled a list of our favorites.

Peanut Butter Balls always at the top!

The whole family pitches in and in no time we have made 5 dozen of each.

We give away most to friends,
but always make enough for us to keep a few ourselves.

Holiday baking complete!

Now, we just need some snow!!

It's her day!!

December 20, 2011.

A special day for this lovely young lady -
Today she marries her best friend.

She will be missed by several.

But in her marriage,
we know that we have not lost a friend-
instead we have gained another.

 Congratulations, Michelle -
I hope your day is as beautiful as you!

Thanksgiving Recap

 So, seeing as we got our first snowfall this morning,
[insert squeals of sheer delight]
I figured it was high time I gave a recap on my Thanksgiving...

We spent the day with family friends and some other young people from the church and college.

The table decor, in my opinion, is almost as important as the food, 
and Mrs. Hughes outdid herself.

I opted for Pumpkin Spice Coffee as opposed to the Pumpkin Pie,
and it was delish! :)

 The kitchen clean up crew::

Mr. Hughes and his stories that always make us laugh!

Game time!!



A great Thanksgiving full of great food and a time well spent with friends!
