I love fall for so many reasons. The number one reason is that I get to prepare our pantry for the upcoming winter season. Although it's a lot of work at the time, it's also very rewarding. Especially when you get to enjoy the taste of all your hard work with family and friends.
Piper was a lot of help in preparing our pantry this year. She can take the skin off a peach like nobody's business! I'm so happy that she enjoys helping with these sorts of things, because she is learning so much in the process. Hopefully it won't be all work, but great memories when she fills her own pantry someday.
I'm sure you've noticed a big lapse in my postings, and I apologize for that. I've had to battle a back/neck issue, and just recently my father in law has been in the hospital with heart problems. I am doing much better, and we hope that my father in law will be on the road to recovery soon, as well. He still has one more surgery to go through, but our family has a very strong faith and believes that God will carry him through just fine.
If you feel a little stir in your heart to say a prayer, we'd appreciate it!
