These great ladies (LDS Sis­ter Mis­sion­ar­ies) always help to make 2nd Sun­day a won­der­ful time

   Sharon and Delsi were Bear Cub Scout Den lead­ers and had a blast work­ing together. 





We are incred­i­bly for­tu­nate to have our friends Floyd and Karen are back home from their LDS Mis­sion in Macon Geor­gia.  They did amaz­ing things there work­ing with mil­i­tary per­son­nel, but we are sure glad to have them home!

  1. Car­rie,

    You recipes look so deli­cious. I am going to have to try the cin­na­mon twist soon and very soon. Was this the first 2nd Sun­day din­ner your daugh­ter was able to attend. It had to be very spe­cial for both of you and I am sure she was a great help. She is so beau­ti­ful! I love see­ing her smile. Your sis­ter and her both look like they have your personality.

    Have a Blessed day!

  2. Hello Car­rie! I’ve nom­i­nated you for a Lieb­ster Award. It’s an award that blog­gers pass on to each other so we can get to know each other and so our read­ers can get to know us a lit­tle bet­ter too! You can check it out on my blog.

    I really like this post and how you involved sev­eral recipes. I espe­cially love the cin­na­mon twists! They look yummy!
