A past time that my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and I have enjoyed doing for a while. A few years ago we decided to get our own kiln since we painted so much. One thing led to another and we decided maybe to try and sale some of our pieces. We have done fairly well. Enjoying it is our main objective. We are now making our own pieces and have a lot of new ones to offer.
I have quickly put together a blog to show some of our product. Still working on the blog, trying to squeeze in time to post more pics is tough!! Our business name is Giggles 2 Glamour.
The Lord is AWESOME and has blessed us with many talents!! Thanks to all our friends and family for supporting us.

I hope that he continues to enjoy taking baths for a long time!! We finally have learned to brave the bath tub! We used to use the sink and thought maybe it was time to start using the tub. Colby loves it because he gets to lay down and splash. Kicking his feet is so much fun!!
Leading up to bath time...
And Colby trying out his Big Boy seat!!

A is for Apples...I found this cute recipe for mini caramel apples at FamilyFun.com. We always have a Fall Carnival at church in October and I always think of these cute ideas but never follow through. So now I have lil' Colby and it only seems right to make fun things. We are planning to be a Pirate for the Fall Carnival and mini caramel apples would go great! I see so many fun ideas for kids and can't wait to share them and experience them with Colby!!RECIPE INGREDIENTS:
4-inch lollipop sticks
Granny Smith apples (one apple makes about 8 mini apples)
Butterscotch or peanut butter chips
Chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, shredded coconut (optional)
Small paper candy cups
1. First, cut the lollipop sticks in half at an angle (the pointy end will go into the apple pieces easier). With the melon baller, scoop little balls out of the apple. Each ball should have a section of apple peel. Push half of a lollipop stick into the peel of each ball. Pat the apple pieces dry.
2. Melt the chips according to the package directions. Dip and swirl the mini apples in the melted chips, then roll the apples in nuts, sprinkles, nonpareils, or coconut, if desired. Place the mini apples in paper candy cups to set.

So Chris and I were reading our devotional tonight and this just really hit me. Can you REALLY imagine this?! I always thought, when I was younger, that I would never get to have a family because I knew the Lord would return before that day got here...a little selfish, but young! I also thought I would never make it to 18, it seemed like forever away!! LOL Now I am here... I have a family of my own and the thought of being with the Lord forever leaves me in awe. The day when there will be no worries and no sadness. I CAN'T WAIT!! I am excited for my husband and son to experience this day also. To be able to teach my lil' guy the amazing things God has done and still does is one of the best parts of being a mom. I always looked forward to this day. Thank you Lord for this life, it's wonderful!!!
