Fun Sunday

Look what the kids got this weekend?!?!?

Our other trampoline finally bit the dust in November. . .
I think the net had finally blown away two weeks prior.  It was our second net.  It is so incredibly windy where we live. . .one time we came home and the trampoline had blown over the fence at the back of the property and down the field a bit!  We secured it after that.  I think there was a hole in the bouncy part too at this point.

This was a day in November that we took it down.  Obviously we were unaware of all the cold and snow that would be hitting us within weeks!!!

And, just for fun, here are pictures from putting that first trampoline up. . .at the end of 2006!  Look how little, little the kiddies are!!!

I'm laughing at all the Little Tykes toys in the background too. . .those haven't been around in ages either. . .:)

OK, back to the present. . .here are my memories from this Sunday. . .

What a great, beautiful day!  The entire project, from the first box being opened to this picture here was 1 1/2 hours. . .great job All!!!  And THANK YOU very, very much, Mammaw & Grandpa, for the new trampoline!
(Life is crazy.  I've been writing this post since Sunday night.  It's now 6:26 Friday morning. . .)


  1. What a fun thing to have!!! Helps to burn some energy:)

  2. What memories! I can't believe how much the kiddies have grown! Love you all! Mammaw

  3. Jennibel, Thanks so much for stopping by and by the way, I love your name. Sure hope the sand in your pots will solve your problem.

    I so remember all the years our children wanted a trampoline and that was one thing that Hubby just would not let them have. He is an insurance agent and all he could see was a liability. :o) Oh well, guess they weren't marred because they never got one. :o)

    Blessings to you for a wonderful weekend. Oh, and I do love TN. I'm from Virginia and that part of the country is so special to me.

Sunday Dinner

This is the easy crockpot pork tenderloin dinner that I mentioned the other day. Obviously I'm not making it again today, but it IS a great Sunday dinner -- definitely good enough for company too. Here is your cast of characters:
Pork tenderloin, 1 can of each: Cream of Mushroom, Golden Mushroom, and French Onion. I am not a fan of processed foods, but this is an exception. I also don't really like mushrooms but they are easy to pick out of this dish if you like (I give all of mine to Margaret). That's it, that's all you need! Oh, and a crockpot and 8-10 hours :)

Here is what a pork tenderloin looks like if you've never bought one.
When you open it up you get this:Lots of people will further trim that fat. . .I don't because it will cook off. I do rinse and pat it dry at this point. Also, when my mother makes this she salt and peppers the meat -- I do not. My kids HATE pepper and I generally don't add salt to my cooking.

Add all three soups to the cro…

Love well

I needed some pictures late last week and realized that I don't spend enough time documenting the moments in life -- to me, if the picture is important enough to take, it's something I want to journal about.  It used to be that I was so busy documenting that I was forgetting to live in the moment. . .I think I have a much better balance now.  But then, this week, I was reminded of why pictures have always been important to me -- because LIFE is important and it's fleeting.
My aunt lost her son (in the sunglasses) this week.  It was unexpected.  He was 41.  He was one of my twin cousins.  Born on my sister's 2nd birthday.  I say "my aunt's son" because I can't imagine losing a child.  I'm sure no one can.  He was also a dad -- of that great kid all the way to the left in the front row.  J is 9.  So a boy is now without his father, and a mother and father without their  son.  His girlfriend lost her partner and many people lost a friend.  His sister…

Margaret's first 8th birthday party

Margaret had her 8th birthday party TWO WEEKS AGO!!! Ugh. It was on a Friday. The following Monday was the last day of school, then we left immediately for our trip "home" (300 miles away) and spent a week there. She had another party there, with family, ON her actual birthday. We traveled home Sunday, went to visit friends at Lake Cumberland in KY on Monday, "caught up" at home Tuesday, than visited Splash Country in Eastern TN with friends yesterday. Whew! Busy start to the summer :)This was the group of friends that were able to attend the party:Marie (her sister), AC, SM, EC, and the birthday girl herself :)She had three other people that were invited (she was 8, so I planned for a party of 8) but they didn't come.

We decided on a "crafting" party this year. My good friend and neighbor, Rene, works with Stampin' Up! and put together a great party at her house in her stamping room. The girls all made photo albums and charm bracelets. It…
