Throwback Thursday: Happy Father's Day


Happy Father's Day!

To my Father who is a hard worker.
To my Father who is kind and giving.
To my Father who fed us Hot Dogs and Oreos while my Mom was in Russia. 
To my Father who finally got to visit Nashville!
To my Father who taught me the importance of being early.
To my Father who called me, "Juicy Poop." 
To my Father who has read more books about War than any other person I know.
To my Father who followed us around the mall without complaining. 
To my Dad who will talk to anyone, even if they speak English or not!

Love you!

Growing up a couple from our church owned a camp at a nearby lake. They would invite us over for boat rides and clam bakes. Lots of happy childhood memories were make at Harvey's Lake.

Throwback Thursday: Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday Mom!

My mother who has always had an incredible sense of style!
My mother who would play paper dolls with me for hours. 
My mother who would make me laugh hysterically at her impression of Santa.
My mother who helped cheer me up by buying me a sweater and taking me to get my hair done.
My mother who  grossed us out by making jiggly tuna loaf. YUCK!
My mother who didn't freak out too much when I told her I wanted to movie to Maryland, California, Ohio, Washington DC and Kentucky.
My mother who always makes my favorite cookies when I come for a visit. 
My mother who is an amazing Grandmother and spoils her Grandchildren!
You are amazing!

Love,
Emily

Throwback Thursday: Balloon Prank


My friend Sandy was the health teacher at the High School where I was working. Her students were watching the movie Patch Adams in class.  The next day during chapel, with help from one of the custodians, I snuck into her classroom and covered the floor with balloons. It wasn't as many balloons as in the movie, but it was still a funny prank and we all had a great time with it!

Throwback Thursday: Joy like licking the beaters!



If baking is any labor at all, it's a labor of love. A love that gets passed down from generation to generation. 

-Regina Brett 

Baking with my mother was always a highlight of my young life, especially when she let me lick the beaters!
