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!

Sunday . . .

Today has been a rather busy Sunday! I wanted to be sure to post a fall festive idea for you all. You're in luck, because today I have not one, but two fall ideas to share !

Here are some pictures from our Sunday evening at home!

 Guess what Robbie did with GiGi this evening?

 Yep, they made a yummy Pink Lemonade cake!

I will be posting more on this tomorrow, but can you guess what project I am working on now??

Spread mixture in an 8x8 pan lined with parchment. Cool completely. Cut into squares. Dip in melted chocolate candy coating. Lay on waxed paper to set.
