Thanks for coming!!

We would like to thank everyone who came out last was so nice to see all of you! My girls enjoyed it too and the ladies who brought things to sell want to do it again! :)

I took care of those card supply orders as soon as possible and will mail them to you as soon as they get here at no extra charge. But keep in mind it was Thanksgiving week so I don't know if it got shipped right away or not...I'll do the best I can in getting it to you in time to create for Christmas!

Here is the Recipi many of yous requested...
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup chopped, salted peanuts
1/2 cup coarsely crushed pretzels

* about 3 cups dark chocolate

In a med bowl beat together all creamy ingredients until smooth. If it seems to wet, you may add more powdered sugar. Stir in peanuts and pretzels. Shape into flat balls and freeze until firm.
Dip into melted chocolate.
* optional, drizzle with additional melted chocolate.
Store in fridge or cool place. ENJOY! :)

Hello my friends!
I feel like this blog post is long over due....I have meant to do this awhile back and here we are and it's already September! I'll begin with big news first!!!(and some of yous already know this) :):) This year instead of hosting 100's of shop hoppers we will be anticipating the birth of a new baby boy!!!This was definitely one of the Lord's sweet surprises...not without some bumps in the journey but we are seeing the end and looking forward to my due date!!(mid October) I have also spent more days with my Mother who experienced a miner stroke in June and on top of that my nephew was in a bicycle accident ( 18 yr old and one of our son's best friends) 6 days in Trauma unit with a brain injury but it's been 8 weeks now and he is at home and we believe he will experience complete healing. Truly a miracle!!! And especially faith building for his young teen friends. God has revealed His power through prayer once more!!Needless to say I won't be doing even a small open house this yr...Maybe next yr??
I will let you know when our little guy arrives...and meanwhile enjoy shop hopping and happy fall & wish you all lots of blessings!!
Fondly, Rachel

Happy winter

Happy winter!!
Just saying hi and hope you're doing well, wanted to let you know I miss you all!
Life is different without the shop and there are days I miss it but it's great to have more time for the 
Children. ( and hubby) I'm spending much more time in the kitchen and they all love it! :)
We also have a puppy around here, Rosa's Christmas present and pay for helping in the shop last fall.
He is about 4 months old and keeps us busy! Lots of fun for Micah's golden retriever too!
Here's a photo Micah took on Sat with Nikko and Bella snoozing in the sun! :)
I hope you are all staying cozy as well.
