We thank you for taking the time to visit our blog.

My husband and I are a young, growing, Christian, military family. My husband is a Captain in The United States Marine Corps. I am a former Elementary school teacher. We are first time parents to a beautiful little two year old boy, with twin boys on the way! I am a stay at home Marine wife, who loves to bake, cook, sew and craft! I enjoy being a Domestic Engineer. The purpose of this blog is to document the story of our life and adventures as they take place.


We are honored to be serving our country and ask for prayer in our upcoming adventures. We have been blessed tremendously, and thank God everyday for all he has given us!

Valentine's Day Chex Mix


Looking for a fun, easy Valentine's Day treat idea that your kids can help out making? Well, look no further! This is a good old Betty Crocker Recipe. Feel free to add any variation of candy you like to make the recipe your own. This is a perfect solution to your need to supply Valentine's Day classroom treats for your children. If you want to get even more creative, allow your child to decorate a paper lunch bag using stamps, heart cutouts, markers and crayons. Fill the bag with the chex mix and tie with a festive bow! You have an inexpensive treat that everyone will love! :)
