Back on Track!

It feels so good to be back on track! There is something so rejuvenating about getting housework done especially after its been on hold for a whole week! The tub is clean, the fridge is clean and guess what I made?!!!

Ta-da! Yup, this is my very own, homemade yogurt! And is it ever yummy! I'm gonna try it out on the kids tomorrow but I'm pretty positive they're going to love it!

I came across the 'recipe' at Granola Mom 4 God. Before that I had never realized you even could make it yourself without some kind of fancy appliance or something! Yay for another homemade snack success!

I am finding such a huge difference in my grocery bill by making most of the kids snacks! I still buy the occasional bag of Teddy Grahams or Goldfish if they are on sale but slowly we are getting away from the bagged and boxed stuff! Now if only I could buy my own cow and cut the cost of milk....hmmm, pretty sure Matt won't agree to that one!...yet! ;)

Having your own cow is great :) I love not having to buy milk! And pretty soon I won't have to buy butter either! (Gonna tackle making that soon, even if it is just to bake/cook with!)

OH! And I am so glad that you are all feeling better!

andrews cousins own half a stays at the farm and they go pick up the milk from the farmer.

i love making yogurt...i havent done it in a long time but i was doing it quite a bit for awhile although i found my yogurt would come out a bit runny...delicious but a little runny. I didn't use whole milk though. The instuctions i used doesn't use thermometres and i would put the hot milk in a bowl of cold water to get it to cool down quicker..The microwave seems like a good idea. The one i used uses the light in your oven and you leave it overnight. Enjoy your yummy yogurt. Add a little honey in plain yogurt for a wonderful treat!!!My mom used to do that and andrew makes fun of me because plain yogurt with honey is still my favourite thing ever!

Amy, I am so jealous of your farm life!!

Andrea, half a cow sounds like a great idea!! And I'll definitely be trying some honey in my yogurt! I'm addicted!

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!
