Dolly's Room

From her Door

Mural I painted around dollar store mirrors
While Dolly was away at camp (sleep over camp for the first time EVER!!) I cleaned and decorated her room. It had never really been fully unpacked since we moved. It was a great surprise for her when she returned and is now the envy of all her friends on the block!
From her bed, and on the floor beneath......
.....the perfect place for a little brother to land and sleep!

This year Get Stepping participated in the downtown Buster festival! The kids even made a few coins (!!) which we put together to buy cookies from our Uncle Neils coffee house across the road ;o)
Waiting our Turn

On stage ready to go....

Watching carefully, new moves we want to learn too!

Summer Fun and Friends

A four year old at camp can have a wonderful time! Especially when they're cute and everyone knows your name!

Smiling and Cute as ever!

Monkey on the swings......

Taking turns at the pinata .....

My Quiet Place

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place. I can feel His mighty power and His grace. I can hear the rush of angel's wings, I see glory on each face. Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.

This is my quiet place I retreat to each summer. God truly walks among these trees and whispers to us in the breeze. You walk onto the grounds and the only way to describe it is peaceful. Perhaps the following pictures will give you the same sense. I was baptized here last year, it means so much to me that I was able to do that in my quiet place.

New Cake! Dragons!!

I used the Marshmallow icing recipe again to make this cake for my friends son. Record time, start to finish, 2 1/2 hours.  (Except clean up, which I am avoiding)
