Busy Weekend

Well we finished up our garage sale for Dania. We were going to have it Thursday through Sunday but Thursday it was raining all day with some snow. So we had it  for 3 days.  We made $500.00!   I think that is really good considering it was a chilly Friday and Saturday. Sunday was so nice I think people just wanted to get some last minute yard work done before the snow came!!!

After the sale today we wanted to do something fun with the kids so we decided to make some caramel apples.  First things first so we had to unwrap all the caramels and try not to eat them instead of putting them in the pan to melt!

Step two, melt the caramels.
Step three, get the apples ready for dipping.

Step four, dip.

Step five, EAT!

And we only had a couple of mishaps while having our fun.  One right before we started.

And one during step two!

All in all a really GREAT weekend!!!


  1. Thank you for that comment of encouragement!
    Congrats on your new daughter! She will fit right in with your family! Isn't it funny how sometimes God chooses a child for us that looks like they could have been from our womb. Everyone says Olive looks like she could be our biological daughter if they didn't know...

  2. Thanks for sharing your blog. Your family is beautiful!
