Sammy…you turn nine today. You are growing up fast. And even though I tell you every day, I don’t tell you often enough how much I love you and how blessed I am to have you as my son. It definitely has not always been easy. You’ve overcome so much…from the speech and development problems […]

It’s actually a crockpot recipe, but we cook it on the stove. And it is amazing. Black Eyed Pea Soup (Click there to view the recipe–she deserves the credit!) The main change is this…in place of the suggested sausage, we found from trial and error that using Hillshire Farms Hot & Spicy Italian Style Smoked […]

Comments Off on Broken Links

So, the import of the Blogger blog posts created a ton of broken links. So….easiest thing is, on the link you used, remove the .html from the link and they then match up…and eventually I’ll get this info on the 404 page.
