Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~Week 34 ~

Happy Easter!  I hope you've had a wonderful day celebrating this glorious day!

This is the first Easter I can ever remember that our family wasn't in church.  It just didn't feel right!  We've had a tough time with sickness around here.  Joy is still running fever and Luke was so sick yesterday morning that we had to carry him to the bathroom.  Turns out after all that it was the type B flu and it's gone through the family. Today is the first day that we've spent more of the day out of the bed than in it.  So that's good!  Anyway, enough about that.  (But we did miss being in church)!

This week for Pinned it, Made it Monday, I'm sharing a fun learning activity that I made for Luke.  I saw this on Pinterest and knew he would love it and he really needs the practice on recognizing his numbers.  For some reason, the numbers haven't come as easy as letters and words for him.

So, I just took the eggs apart so that the colors wouldn't match when he got them correct.  I knew he'd catch on quickly if they matched.  Then I just put a number on the small portion of the egg and dots on the other part. 

He's played it by matching the numbers to their dots.  Then when they're all together, I call out a number and he picks it out and gives it to me.  That way, he gets double practice.

I liked this and Luke loved it.  I think if there's a fun way to learn, that's the best way!  :)

Do you have something to share this week?

Just Trying to Get Better

Hi friends.  Just thought I'd pop in here to let you know I haven't abandoned my blog.  What I thought was the flu that hit us wasn't the flu.  For me, it was an upper respiratory infection and a kidney infection.  I've been battling this since Friday with fever as high as 103.  Joy and Luke had a touch of something the end of last week running fever, but now Joy's much sicker and running higher temperatures.  I always worry about a sickness or virus pushing her into another pancreatitis episode.  I'm trying NOT to worry though.  It doesn't help and that's the opposite of faith.  :)

Together, she and I sound kind of pitiful with our hacking and coughing.  Thank the Lord for my mom taking care of Luke during the day!    And now it sounds like Jason might be trying to coming down with something too.

We're so ready to feel better!  We're ready for spring too!  Where are you spring?  

Anyway, I appreciate you hanging with me!  I'll be back as soon as I can!  We're just trying to get over this and get better!  Thank you!  :)

Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~ Week 33 ~

The flu has hit our house, so unfortunately, I don't have anything to share for Pinned it, Made it Monday.   Instead I decided to feature a couple of past Pinned it Made it Monday from folks that linked with me.

First of all, these get well cards from Mary Ann of Mary Ann's House are just the cutest!  I know that Luke would really enjoy making these.

And second of all, this laundry recipe is most definitely a favorite of mine.  I've made this one and it is my favorite one yet.  I like that it is powder form and easier to store.  This one is from Karen of Homespun Simplicity. 

If you have something to share that you've pinned and made from Pinterest, you can link up below.  We'd love to see!

Faithful Friday - "I'm With You in Times of Trouble"

Friday is here again!  That means it's time for Faithful Friday.  If you would like to link with Joy and share something for Faithful Friday, you can do so by clicking on the button.  :)

I'm really loving the devotion book, His Princess (Love Letters from Your King) and I know how much they hit home for me, so I'm sharing another one from that devotion book this week.

My Princess.......I'm With You in Times of Trouble 

You never need to doubt if I am in the midst of your circumstances.  No matter how hot the fire seems, the flames will not scorch you as long as I am present.  Just as I was with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in their fiery test of faith, I am here now with you, ready to cool you off and keep you calm as we walk through this trial together.  You may not see it now, but you, My princess, will someday be like precious silver that has been refined by fire and purified in My presence.  Remember, I did not put you in a fire to burn you out.  Trust Me with your troubled heart, and watch Me do wonders for you in the midst of the hottest flames.

Your King and your Refiner

The Lord is my strength, my shield from every danger.  I trust in Him with all my heart.  He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
Psalm 28:7
Be Blessed!  Have a great weekend!

♥ Superheroes ♥

We are kind of Superhero fans around here.

It's not out of the ordinary to hear us spouting off one-liners from Superhero movies. We all have our favorites (and those we don't like so much as well).

My favorite is Captain America. 

Source:  Google Images

But I also love Spiderman and The Hulk.

I don't care so much for Batman.  I never have.....not sure exactly why......maybe he just seems a little too dark for me? 

We loved the Avengers movie.  Joy and I are fans of Hawkeye too.  :)

Luke seems to be fond of Iron Man.  I think Colt likes him too (and also Hawkeye).  Jason has always been a Superman fan. 

I just found this quiz to see which superhero I was most like.  I thought it would be interesting to see if it turned out to be the one I like best.  Captain America wasn't on the list. :(  It shows Superman for me, but it was a tie between that and Spiderman......... and Spiderman is a favorite of mine.  It's interesting that my least favorite was last on the list.  :)

Your results:
You are Superman
Green Lantern
Wonder Woman
The Flash
Iron Man

You are mild-mannered, good,
strong and you love to help others.
Click here to take the "Which Superhero are you?" quiz...

Anyway, I just wondered if there are any other adult superhero fans out there?  :)

Who's your favorite?  Or how did the quiz rate you?

♥ Brownies ♥

Brownies are a favorite treat around here.   Jason hints around for these quite often.  :)

I grew up with my mama making this brownie recipe and I made these for Jason while we were dating.  :) 

This is one recipe that our entire family loves!

Jason's favorite way to enjoy them is with a jar of peanut butter and a glass of milk.

The rest of us just take them as simple brownies!  But they're not bad with a scoop of ice cream either!

The recipe is for baking in a square baking dish, but I usually double it and bake it in a 9 x 13 glass dish.  I spray my dish with spray cooking oil and then wipe out the excess with a paper towel.

I bake mine on the top rack of my oven and it takes a little longer in my oven than it does my mom's.  She says it takes hers about 35 minutes to get done.  It takes about 40-43 minutes in mine.  I just keep a watch on them.  They will still be a little soft in the middle (the toothpick trick here doesn't never will come out dry), but as they sit, they firm a little more.  They will start to pull away from the sides when they are done and will be softer in the middle.  Just don't overcook.  I've burned a few batches thinking they needed more baking!

Anyway here's the recipe:


3/4 c. flour
1 cup sugar
6 Tbsp cocoa
2/3 cup Wesson oil
1 Tbsp corn syrup
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla flavoring

Bake at 350 degrees.

Hope your family loves them as much as ours!  Enjoy!  :)

♥ A New Remodeling Project ♥

We can't ever let things rest for too long, can we? 

We have a small makeover project in the works. 

We've talked about redoing Colt's bedroom for a few months.  We had already decided we would do nothing to it for a year, just in case he wanted to come back and find things as he left them.  :)  He's been living out in his own apartment now for over a year and a half.

When Jason's dad passed away last April, we took one of his bedroom's furniture and Jason's sister took the other.  Since then, it's just been stored in that bedroom with the door closed.  I have done absolutely nothing with that room.  I honestly don't even like to go in there. I miss Colt being there. About the only time we ever go in there is when we're playing hide-n-seek with the kids (we like flashlight hide-n-seek) or when I was wrapping Christmas gifts.

The messy room awaits a makeover.....a glimpse of the furniture. 

So we decided it was time.  We finally picked out a color for the walls.  And the yucky carpet has to come out.  So basically this room will get a makeover of a new wall color, a new floor, and new furniture (new to us anyway).  And then of course, the fun part will come.......the decorating part!

Here's the paint color sample:

The photos didn't really capture the true color.  Here's another photo, but still not like seeing it in person:

Jason already took back the sample of the rustic laminate flooring when he ordered it.  It's called Hickory Praline.  I didn't realize he was taking the sample back or I would have gotten a photo of it first.  Oh well, you'll have to wait until the real thing is here.  :)

The plan is to start this weekend.  Not sure how far will get as we have to tear out a custom built entertainment center, take down border, and get the walls ready for painting.  If we could have it all painted by the time the weekend ends, I'll be one happy gal!  The floor will hopefully follow the next weekend or two after that.

I could probably chronicle our lives by the chapters of home remodeling projects!  We've completely redone several rooms, one project at a time!  I always dread the mess, but love the outcome.  Doing it ourselves is always worth the time and mess in the end, and besides doing it ourselves fits our budget much better.

So here we go again.........  :)

Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~ Week 32 ~

I always look forward to Pinned it, Made it Monday.  I love Pinterest!  I look forward to trying out some of the numerous wonderful pins and also seeing what you've been pinning and making!

This week I'm sharing a a soup recipe that I pinned and made.

 It's called Beefy Nacho Soup.

Here's the original pin which can be found on my What's for Dinner Pinterest board:

Source:  The Recipe Critic

Here's the very simple recipe:


1 lb. lean ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed nacho cheese soup
1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes and green chilis, undrained
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese

1.  In a 2 quart saucepan, cook the ground beef and drain the fat.
2.  Add the remaining ingredients into the saucepan.
3.  Cook for about 8-10 minutes until thoroughly heated through.  At this piont, I kept warm in   crockpot for a few hours.
4.  Serve with sharp cheddar cheese on top and crushed tortilla chips.

**NOTE FROM TAMMY**The only changes I made to this was using ground chuck instead of the lean ground beef because I had it on hand.  And I added a can of black beans and a can of whole kernel corn.  I figured it could only make it better!

Here's mine:

This was really good!  It was a little on the spicy side, but so delicious!  Jason gave it a rating of 8 or 9 as far as soups go.  I loved it!  The tortillas and cheese on top was perfect!  I'll be making this one again!

Now it's your turn!  :)  I hope you'll link your Pinterest project today!  :)

♥ Books, Books, Books ♥

We love books around here.  So much so, that we accumulate stacks of them.  We have books a little bit of everywhere.  Jason built the bookshelf upstairs in the loft to accomodate many of them.

It occurred to me the other night just how many read-aloud books we have going on at the moment.  Reading aloud is something I've always done with my children since they were babies and it's something I've continued all the way through high school (and beyond if they're around to hear it).  There's nothing like sharing a book.  It's an integral part of our homeschooling and family life.  It is my single most favorite part of homeschooling. 

My kids have always had to narrate (tell back in their own words) or answer a few questions or even ask me a few questions about what was read.  I let them ask me questions because I find that they have to listen closely to find a question to try to stump me.  They're only allowed to ask a question that they know the answer to.  It builds listening skills.  :)

After I read the other night, Jason and I were talking and counted just how much time is spent by me reading aloud.  We figured that I probably read aloud at least 2 hours of every day, except maybe the weekends.  Sometimes it is more.  It's a bad thing when I lose my voice.  :)

Here's the stack of read-aloud books that are ongoing right now.

Those are the ones I'm currently reading aloud everyday between reading to Joy, reading to Luke, and reading to the family. 

Right now, Joy has two readers going.  She sometimes has more, but at the moment, these are her two she reads personally everyday.

And this is Mr. Luke's stack of books from the Library.  We read him one or more of these everyday until time to take them back, then we'll get a new stack for him.  Plus he has many books around here that we read to him as well.

Jason is not that much of a reader.  He's more of a listen to CDs or talk radio kind of guy, but he listens in on our family read alouds, which at the moment include the Chronological Bible (we're reading through the Old Testament) and the Lamplighter book, Ishmael.

Colt has always been a reader too.  I'm not sure how much of it he does these days, but he grew up with all the read-alouds and reading alot independently as well.  I miss him being a part of our read-alouds!

I just realized the other night that I had never shared this particular thing about us..  But it is so much a part of our lives that it's just as normal as getting up, getting dressed, and eating.  :) 

I like the feel a book in my hand too, so ebooks just don't appeal to me that much.

 At the moment, I'm not reading a book independent of the read alouds for me personally, but many times I have that going on too.

What about you?  Are you a reader?  Do you enjoy reading aloud?

Faithful Friday - "I Will Work Out What's Best"

It's Faithful Friday time. :)

First of all, I used to choose the winner of The Bible Mini-Series companion book giveaway. 

And the winner is...........

#1!  Hollie of A New Beginning.  Congratulations, Hollie!   :)

And next, I want to leave you with another wonderful devotion from His Princess (Love Letters from Your King) by Sheri Rose Shepherd.

My Princess.....I Will Work Out What's Best

I know what's best for you, and nothing happens without My knowledge.  I see your disappointment when things don't unfold in your life the way you had envisioned.  But if you could only lift your eyes to heaven and see My hand moving with eternal purposes, you could better understand.  Don't forget that your life here is other words, My love, you're not home yet.  But for now I want you to trust Me in your disappointments, and let Me turn your pain into a passion to persevere.  Wait on Me, My love.  Don't give up!  Rather, give in to Me and My perfect plan for you, knowing that I only desire the very best for you.

Your King and Father who truly knows best

The Lord watches over you the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
Psalm 121:5 (NIV)

Have a great weekend!  :)

♥ Sunporch Chat with Wendi of My Heart is Always Home ♥

Good morning!

I goofed up the other night when preparing and scheduling a post and briefly published the Sunporch Chat with Wendi.  Since it was supposed to be scheduled ahead for Wednesday (today), I removed it and scheduled it for Wednesday morning (today).  Unfortunately, that post probably showed up on folks' dashboards and sidebars, and then it wasn't on my blog.  I suppose that's the reason it didn't show up fresh today.  So this short post's purpose is to invite you to join Wendi and I on the sunporch for a chat today.  :)  You can scroll down below or click here.

Thanks for stopping by!  :)

Sunporch Chat ♥ with Wendi of My Heart is Always Home ♥

Hi there!  I'm so glad you joined us today on the sunporch for a Sunporch Chat.  Wendi of My Heart is Always Home is my guest today and a sweet one at that!   I have always loved my visits to Wendi's blog.  Her heart is truly always at home and it definitely shows.  I know you're going to enjoy her visit as much as me!  So come on in, grab yourself a brownie and a cup of tea.  Wendi told me she loves anything chocolate so I made my stand-by brownies that are well loved around here! 

Meet Wendi.......

1)  How long have you been blogging and what/who gave you the desire to blog?

I have been blogging since 2006.  I received an email from a new friend that had her blog address on the bottom.  At that point I didn't even know what a blog was!  Her link led to another and another and finally here.  I read everything on Monica's blog in one evening!  I started clicking on her links and was in in awe of the number of kindred spirits I found!  When you don't live a "normal" life compared to the mainstream it isn't always easy to fit in.  I loved the connection I felt to those who shared my love for faith, family and home.  The idea of of connecting with like minded people and having a journal of my life was very appealing.  I dove in with both feet and I guess you could say the rest is history!

2) How did you choose the name of your blog and why?

At the time I started blogging I was working full time, but my heart wasn't in it.  My hearts desire was to be a homemaker.  At the time we didn't think that would be possible.  I tried to make the best of being away from home but no matter where I was or what I was doing my heart was always home!

3) What variety of topics do you post on your blog (examples - home decorating, family, gardening, recipes, adoption, homeschooling, crafting, etc....)

My blog is a hodge podge for sure!  I post about life... my family, what is cooking in my kitchen, gardening, home keeping, decorating, crafting... like I said a hodge podge. 

4) Tell us a little about yourself and your family.

I am 42 and live in the suburbs in Central Indiana.  I have been married to the love of my life, Chuck, for 11 years.  Our Megan is 6 years old and in first grade at a small Christian school.  I fill my day caring for my home and my cousins 2 and 3 year old boys.  I never intended to babysit full time.  I received a call asking if could help her out.  Three years and another baby later I am some days asking myself how this happened! :)  Seriously, I can't imagine my days any different. 

5) How would you describe your decorating style?

I am a country girl at heart!  I like a little bit of prim and farmhouse.  I know I will never win a decorating contest!  I surround myself with things that make my happy. 


6) What's your favorite color and why?

Brick red.  I find it a warm color and it makes me smile when I see it. 

7) Tell us a few of your favorite things (collections, things that make you happy, etc.).

Mason jars!  I love them all and especially the old blue jars.  They are so practical.  

 It doesn't matter if they are filled with home grown goodies, pantry items or a bouquet of flowers. 


They are just pretty!

8) What do you like to do in your spare time (hobbies, crafts, etc..)?

Spare time?  What is that?  Most of my spare time is spent with my family.  Doing fun, simple things together.  I also enjoy gardening. Both flower and vegetable.  

I am an avid reader and have been since I was a child.  Fiction books are my favorite and I generally only read inspirational fiction.  I like Amish and historical settings. 

Spending time in the kitchen is a favorite activity.  I enjoy cooking from scratch, baking, canning and the best part is having a cute helper!

I enjoy doing crafty things.  As my time is limited most of my craft projects are now fairly simple or geared toward the children.  Megan is developing a love for crafting and that makes this Mama very happy!  I also work in the children's department at our church two Sundays a month.  It is such a joy to watch little ones develop a love for the Lord!

9) What does your dream house look like? (Describe and/or include photo)

I dream of an old farmhouse, but since old houses equal lots of work I think I would build a new home to look like an old farmhouse.  I dream of a big, bright kitchen with a pantry large enough to hold all of my home canned items.  A porch large enough for a swing is a must!

10) If you could visit anywhere, anytime, where would it be and why?

The Vermont countryside in the fall.  I imagine the beauty of fall colors and the fun of exploring little towns off the beaten path.  Ahhhh... I can already feel the peace!

11) Would you share with us a favorite homemaking/organizing tip or recipe, etc..?

My favorite tip is to keep up on things.  Not perfection by any means.  Do enough laundry that your entire closet isn't in the hamper.  Have a place for everything and try to put things away as you go.  (I really need to take my own advice on this one!)  When things are in their place it gives the illusion of clean.  If someone stops by and things are picked up they might not notice you skipped dusting this week!

12) Tell us something about yourself that we might not already know from reading your blog. (something unusual, etc..)

I don't care for driving, especially on the interstate.  If I never drove again I would be fine with it.  I do drive in my little area of the world, but get anxious if I have to drive some place I am not familiar with.   

13) Wendi, I know adoption is dear to your heart since Megan joined your family through beautiful adoption! Would you tell us a little more about how Megan came to join your family….about your experience in China……anything you’d like to share about your adoption/China experience or thoughts on adoption in general? (By the way I think your Megan is just adorable and I love how you two do so many fun things together)!

Thanks, I happen to think my sweet girl is adorable too!  Oh, I could write a book here.  I struggled with infertility and we were trying to do Invitro.  I keep failing my blood test and was never able to get to the point of trying Invitro.   I really struggled emotionally during this time and remember this moment like it was yesterday.  I was in the shower crying and praying.  I remember crying out that I just wanted to be a mom and telling God I couldn't do this anymore and that I was laying this burden with Him.  It is a moment that I can't really put into words.  I realized that I didn't ask to get pregnant that I asked to be a mom.  I thought about it, prayed about it and knew that being a parent was the important thing.  From that moment on little things keep leading me to adoption. 

Our paperwork was sent to China October 2005 and we traveled to China in March 2007. Our time in China was amazing!  We traveled with a very large group, thirty families.  We spent several days touring in Beijing.  We were able to visit places like the Great Wall, Tienanmen Square and saw the building of the Birds Nest for the Olympics.  It was relaxing and felt like a once in a life time vacation. 

We then traveled to Jiangxi to meet our baby girl.  April 2, 2007 I held my baby girl for the first time.

It was instant love!  The picture above is when I first took her into my arms.  She smiled at me and that set the mood for our attachment.  I am lucky enough to say we have one of those fairy tale adoption stories where we all immediately took to each other.  A day doesn't go by that I don't thank God for bring us together as a family!  

14) I also know that family/home is most important to you and that you try to keep the focus on simple moments. Could you share your thoughts on that or any ideas or tips to go along with living a simple life?

I feel that a big part of living a simple, full life is your attitude.  I work at being positive and finding joy in the small, ordinary things.  Is this easy?  Not always.  It is easy to let discontentment slip in.  I try hard to keep my focus on the important things... faith, family and home.

We try to limit activities that keep us apart as a family.  Other then school Megan is limited to one outside activity.  At this time it is piano.    I have always heard that a family that prays together, stays together.  Most evenings before Megan goes to bed you will find us reading a Bible story together and sharing nighttime prayers.  Most of our task are completed as a family.  We built a fence around our backyard last year and Megan was working right beside us to build it.  She may have only been playing in dirt or carrying a piece of scrap wood, but we were together. 

Don't be afraid to say no.  This is something that I struggle with as I don't like conflict and am a people pleaser.  I can tell when I am letting to much of the world in our lives.  I start to feel stressed and restless.  Living a simple life is an ever changing journey.  From time to time we have to step back and evaluate what is working and what changes we need to make. 

15) Tell us a way God has blessed you and/or your family.

So, so many ways!  I really feel that I am blessed beyond measure.   

Losing my job was a blessing!  I really, really wanted to be a stay at home wife/mother.  Chuck keep saying there was no way it could happen.  I worked in the mortgage industry for 10 years and one Friday we were all called into a meeting and told our office was closing immediately.  We were four months away from going to China!  I drew unemployment and we felt that I couldn't get another job until after we returned from China.  It wouldn't be fair to a company to commit to a job and then take a month off.  Here we are 6 years later and I am still home!

The biggest and best is bringing us together with Megan.  We started the adoption process with a leap of faith.  Not enough money in the bank to complete it, but we felt peace that we were meant to do it.  Whenever we needed funds somehow we had them!  We stumbled along the way, but every roadblock we met we were able to overcome.  It is truly only by the grace of God that we became a family!

16) Share any words of wisdom and/or a favorite quote you'd like to leave with us.

"No matter how hard things are, tomorrow is a fresh opportunity to make it better." ~ Author Unknown

Words From Tammy:  Thank you so much for being my guest, Wendi.  I loved hearing your adoption love story and about your trip to China!  And I love the way God worked it out in His perfect timing for you to be at home, where your heart was anyway, just in time for Megan to come home!   You have a beautiful family and home.  :)

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Wendi and I are so glad you joined us today.  I love your comments (and thank you for them) and I know Wendi would love for you to stop by and visit her too at My Heart is Always Home!
