Oh I’m all over that!). Suffice it to say, I am now aware football season has begun! ~grins~ I later asked a follow up question and found out that Yes, there is at least one football team with a bunny mascot!

  4. Had some free time this morning to scroll through some blogs (hubby and child on Scout campout, daughter asleep). I’m so glad you have all these older blogs otherwise I’d never get to collect any recipes. Any really good mother feels herself spread thin between providing for family, taking care of family, being example to family, honoring our spiritual and creative selves, then falling into bed at night. I loved reading the blog about nicknames. It brought back some good memories from a not so good childhood. I also liked the story about Mama and Grandmama and the apple dumplings. Thanks for all you do!

  5. I think it’s amazing that you manage to post one totally new recipe each week in addition to Mom duties!!

    I actually love these “reminder” blogs because they make me think of some of your older recipes I might have forgotten about, or wanted to try but never got around to it. I’m going to make the pizza sticks for lunch tomorrow. 🙂

    Keep up the great work, you are an amazing person and kids/family always must come first. You know that, and I so, so respect that about you.

  6. Hey, Christy! I love it when you do these compilation posts. It’s a great reminder of some of the great recipes that I may have forgotten about. Thanks a bunch. Have a great day, everyone!

  7. That was supposed to be a sad face not whatever that is. Apparently I’m not hip to the emoticon shortcuts. And yes, I just said “hip to.” Eek!
