I don't have a kid old enough to go to soccer camp but going to watch our friend's kids play is a highlight of summer. We have been going since Ivy was born to cheer on Ty, Jaden and Gavin. It is fun to see everyone from church and just sit and visit while we watch the kids. As you can see below, Ivy has warmed up real nicely with her future husband (arranged marriages people.)....we need to talk about the smooching. It was also a treat this year that my friend Tracy was there and had a daughter at camp. It's been fun.
On a side note....I haven't been really good at blogging lately. I will try to do better. Alot has been happening in the fost adopt world. Nothing really to share yeat and Ivy is still my only child. We have said yes a couple of times to take a child /baby and it hasn't panned out. We have also said no a couple of times. That can be hard on the soul when your desire is to have another child in the home...But...God is good and I know he loves and protects our family. Thanks for your prayers.

Yesterday was my 11 year anniversary. We went to the Americana in Glendale, saw a movie, shopped, ate at the Cheescake Factory and had a great time together. Ivy had a fun filled night and sleepover with Aunt Hollie. Matt got me a Paula Deen Cookbook that I had been wanting and he wrote me the most beautiful note that made me cry. I am so grateful to be married to this man. We both agreed that the next 11 years will be even better.

I hope that you have been reading his blog that I put to the right. Yesterday was his first concert back. I prayed for him and his sons all day. There was a play by play of his concert last night and it sounded so powerful and amazing. He changed alot of his lyrics. Including adding a new line to Cinderella. I encourage you to read about it as it is a great reminder of what is true and important in this temporary life.
Also, it shows when the Chapman family is going to be on TV and in People magizine. I already have it all on my calendar. I can't wait to see how the Lord is going to use them to His glory. Please check it out. It is a good reminder to keep praying for this hurting family.

Ok...so I told you that I made my "summer dessert" the other day. I make it every summer, all summer and then we don't eat it again until the next summer. My friend, Heather, used to make it for me all the time. I know people have proubly had some variation of it before. It is so easy that even Ivy helped me.
8oz. cream cheese
half cup sugar
2cups Cool Whip
half cup cherry pie filling
graham cracker crust
Beat cream cheese and sugar until creamy, then add cool whip. Blend.
Put in graham cracker crust. Top with cherry pie filling ( You can use another pie filling or I have eaten it with sliced strawberries before.)
Refrigerate for 2 or more hours. Enjoy!
*Most of the time if I am going somewhere. I double the reciepe. I just divide the mixture into 2 pie crusts.
