Fall Has Arrived At Our House!

Since Fall is my favorite season, I get a little ahead of the game when it comes to decorating for it... I already have all of my indoor decorations up! :0) I haven't gotten the outside finished, however, but when I do, I will post those pictures as well. I would enjoy hearing about your different ideas for decorating for fall as well!

Gooey S'mores Bars

If you're like me, you're always looking for some new yummy recipes to try!! Since fall is here now, this one is perfect for those cool nights when you want to kick back and relax with friends. I tried it just last night, and it turned out pretty good, so I thought I would share with you all! :0) Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

24 Graham crackers (12 double)
2 c mini marshmallows
6 oz (1 cup) semisweet choc chips
1 stick butter
1\2 c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla


Spray 9x13 with Pam. Line pan with graham crackers- they may overlap slightly. Sprinkle with marshmallows; Sprinkle with choc chips. On low heat combine butter and brown sugar until dissolved. Take off burner and stir in the vanilla. Drizzle over top of the graham crackers, marshmallows and choc chips.

Bake 10-12 mins or until marshmallows are golden brown. (They took an extra 6 minutes to get really golden brown in my oven)

*It wouldn't hurt to add a few extra marshmallows and chocolate chips to the recipe if your serving a group of chocoholics! ;0)

Worth it All...

The above picture is of me with my maternal grandparents at my high school graduation in 2006...

Sunday marked the 3 year anniversary of my Grandma Hunt's passing. She went home to be with Jesus on September 5, 2007. I was always very close to my grandma... I have many good memories of her that I will forever treasure. It is never easy to lose a loved one...but we can have a peace that comes with the assurance that they are in Heaven with Jesus. While on earth, my grandma suffered with almost complete blindnes... What an awesome thought, that now she is seeing Jesus face-to-face!! She also went through a very tragic time in her life when her 9 year old son was burnt to death while she stood by helpless and unable to do anything for him... Now she is getting reaquainted with Joey and walking hand-in-hand with him on those beautiful golden streets!

We may never understand why God allows some of the things He does to come into our lives; but if my grandma were able to talk to us today, she would without a doubt say, "It IS worth it all when we see Jesus!".

As much as I loved and now miss my grandma, I would never want to bring her back... But my goal is, however, to meet her in Heaven someday!!
