Calico Dishes & Hello...

well hello!
remember me?
i've been getting harassed about not posting, 
so here i am.
hi roxanne! hi leticia! 
hi everyone else...love you!

i realize that i have been telling you to 
study your scriptures since OCTOBER! 
yikes. i hope you listened! hehe

i thought that while i try to catch up with the 
remainder of last year i'd share my
calico dish collection with you.  
my step-mom entrusted me with it. 
i LOVE it and her.
and she likes that it's loved and 
out for her to visit when she comes over.

ok. so. i made this quilt and taught it at fat quarters.
it was rightfully named calico dishes.
(see the red block...oh how i would lOOOVE red calico dishes...)

and here i used the calico tins 
at our food table. 

the blueberry cupcakes were yummy
and went along nicely with my theme.

hope to be back soon!

The {Witches} Ball

this year i was part of a group of women in charge
of our church's halloween party.
we hosted a witches ball

here are just a couple photos from that night.

we had a cauldron with dry ice and one of the witches
heckled and stirred her pot :)

it's an easy theme for your halloween party.

Scripture study

With littles, 
scripture study has always been a little difficult.
Until now!!!
I found this app on the apple store

It's awesome and perfect for my family!
I bought each child a small notebook. Each night they write the scripture that we are learning about, a word or two that helps them remember what we learned as well as a picture that they draw. One of us helps evyn (our 4 year old) to jot down the scripture and a word or two. She draws the picture.
It has been a wonderful tool and we are all enjoying our family scripture study time.

Hope this helps! Happy studying!!!
