Facebook Friday



Popping in real quick for
Facebook Friday. It has
been an interesting week
to say the least.

Today I have a Fall treat
for you to enjoy!

No Bake Reese's Krispy Treats

4 C Rice Krispies Cereal
1 C Light Corn Syrup
1 C Sugar
1 1/4 C Creamy Peanut Butter
5 regular size Reese's Peanut
Butter Cups (I would cut these
in fours)
1/2 C Milk Chocolate Chips

1. Line a baking sheet with
Parchment Paper and set

2. Place cereal in a large bowl
and set aside.

3. In another bowl -- combine
the corn syrup, sugar, peanut
butter and place in micro-
wave, cook for 2-3 mins
stirring every 30 seconds until
mix is melted evenly.

4. Pour over the cereal and mix

5. Mix in the choc. chips.

6. After a couple of mins
mix in the peanut butter cups.

7. Spoon onto the baking sheet
and let cool.

These could be given to those
you know without peanut
allergies for treat on Halloween
or the family can enjoy them!

Happy Friday everyone!

"Wednesday Write Up" 
soon. Please hang in there.

Facebook Friday


Hello Everyone!

Today I am starting a new series.
It is called "Facebook Friday."

I will be posting fun stuff  I
have seen posted that you may
not have.
I know some of you follow me
over there so I will try to post
things that I don't on Facebook.

Today's post is:

The best bear in the world is having
a birthday!! Pooh is 90! Hasn't aged
much in my opinion.
To mark this milestone, a series of
books has been written for a new
generation of Pooh lovers. Pooh's
new friend will be introduced in
Winnie the Pooh: The Best Bear
in All the World. This story will
be part of a four book series each
with a seasonal theme.
The season in the first book will be
Winter and Pooh's new friend will
be (drum roll) a PENGUIN!
Now there are some doubters out
there, they are thinking "What,
a penguin in the forest?" No
different than a kangaroo or
a tiger.
I am looking forward to this series
for sure!

Wednesday Write-Up will return
next week this was a strange week
and here it is Friday.

See you soon!

Hope everyone is doing well.

Last week there wasn't much
going on but work and no one
wants to hear about that four
letter word.

We had a spectacular sunset at
the end of September. Recently
we  have had several beautiful





Saturday found us making our
annual trip to our favorite
pumpkin farm.


Itty Bitty pumpkin checkers




They had some interesting pump-
kins this year. The one in the middle
was strange but I had to get a pic

On Saturday evening we fired up
the fire pit. Lots of sticks have
fallen out of our trees providing
us with a lot to burn.


On a sad note the Kansas City
Royals did not make it into the
playoffs this year. We are still
proud of our Boys in Blue

That is it for this week, stay
tuned you never know what
might pop up here at

Yes, I am still here and after
you read this post you will be
caught up on the goings on at
our house.

On Labor Day weekend
(Saturday) to be exact we went
to see the sunflowers. 40 acres
of them! They were planted in
July and began blooming right
before Labor Day weekend.
A little back story here. Farmer
Ted plants the sunflowers for
the seeds which he in turns feeds
to the birds. Several years ago
when he began planting the fields,
he had no idea they would become
a MUST SEE event for young and
old alike. There were sooooo many
people coming to the farm on Labor
Day the police became involved in
traffic control!

A little visitor enjoying his visit
to the farm.

EVERYWHERE you look there are

Look who popped up in the field!

Visitors can pick these beauties for
a donation, Farmer Ted has collection
buckets for $1 donations in various
parts of the field. We brought one
home and thankfully I found it on
the ground and we did not have to
try and pull it out of the ground.
They are sturdy buggers. Next
year we will need to bring a cutting
instrument with us!


Before we even got to the field that
morning we experienced our first
Earthquake! Yep, I said it. Came up
from Oklahoma at 5.8 on the scale.
Not they way I would recommend
waking up but hey. Bed moved a
little that was all but very weird for

On Labor Day Monday in the evening,
we went to one of the local parks and
watched the Kansas City Symphony
perform a free Labor Day concert. It
was a bit hot before the concert but
once the sun went down it was a
beautiful evening for a picnic and
symphony music.

On the second Saturday of this month
we went to the Lenexa Spinach Festival.
Held each year to celebrate our city's
claim to fame--as the "Spinach Capital"
of the World. Back in the day the Belgium
farmers planted spinach here. There were
lots of crafts, music, kid's activities, Popeye
and Olive Oil made an appearance plus
lot's of food to choose from. Our fave food
booth is the Spinach booth of course.

The week of September 12th came like a
whirlwind both of us started our work
week sick which did not bode well for
the wedding activities happening later
in the week, thankfully it was a one day
thing for both of us. Gift wrapping,
getting clothes ready, rehearsal to
attend and the BIG day last Saturday!
We had had some rain during the week
but Saturday dawned with fog and then
the sun came out.

This would be the new Mr. and Mrs.
My brother-in-law and my new sister-
in-law! We are so happy for them!

They had a cupcake and punch reception
plus their own cake to cut.

This is Julie's bouquet. Each flower
has a vintage pin for it's middle.
This was such a great idea!

Well that is it for now, more fun
coming in the next few weeks so
stay tuned!

helped with the "horse bath"

Kinda looks unimpressed

This is one of shoes. It was heavy!

predetermined ranch along the way.

Momma and baby. So sweet.

Duke is back to formally "meet and
