Soup Supper Game Night {2014} + An Update of Sorts

Hello everyone!

Sorry that I've been MIA for quite some time in the blog-o-sphere. Things have really been busy lately, due to a new job and some personal issues that I've been dealing with. 
How have you been lately?

This past March we had our annual Game Night at church, along with some homemade soups and desserts. To be honest with you all, I didn't enjoy this year's game night like in previous years and I'll explain why in an upcoming post. But until then, I'm just thankful for every little thing that the Lord has blessed me with, even at times when I felt like I didn't deserve it. :') 

Before you go, I would like to say a quick prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,
 I thank-you for letting me blog here again for I dearly missed it. I'm thankful for every good gift that you give to Your children, as well as your mercies that You give every morning {Lamentations 3:22-23}. I pray Lord that you will let your Light shine here once more and that whoever comes across this blog will be blessed by it. Lord, I thank-you for dying on the cross, and that You will prepare our hearts for worship tomorrow on Easter. Please let it be a day of celebration and that our hearts will be merry and glad. Lord, tomorrow is in Your hands. You do with it as you please. 
In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

New Year's Eve Party {2013}

This past New Year's Eve held our annual Speck and Dicken Pancake Party. Friends, family, and neighbors came to fellowship, taste, and play all sorts of games for the evening. Towards the end we sang songs and played Auld Lang Syne as the new year rolled in.

Rum Punch. Not my kind of drink though. 
Jalepeno's Poppers. So good! Love the bacon part of it. :)
My weakness. Cookie Dough Truffles. 
Coffee and Apple Cider. Everything in moderation. 

Playing video games on the computers.
So how was your New Year's Eve? Hope it was a wonderful one!
Do tell.

Christmas Day {2013}

Christmas morning dawned just like any other day, except that we were opening presents and most of us had chocolate candy for breakfast. :D Later we had our Christmas dinner which consisted of roasted turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, whiskey-glazed carrots, salad, and Schwans Pecan Pie for dessert.
After the big meal some of us played one or more games of Clue or went downstairs to work out. (My little brother Henry still needs to grow more before he can lift weights like a pro). ;)
In the evening we watched "A Christmas Carol", a Christmas tradition in our family. A perfect way of ending the day.

What was your Christmas like?
Do tell.
