For more Happy Homemaker Monday please visit Diary of a SAHM!
Happy Monday everyone! I pray that you had a very good weekend. Ours was filled with family time and a birthday. Ducky (my middle son) turned 4 on Sunday. We had a party for him complete with a pinata, gummy worm cupcakes, and presents. He had a wonderful time and is so happy that he is 4 now. We took him to IHOP on Saturday night for an early birthday dinner. He loved the pancakes!
I had a bowl of strawberry O's from Trader Joes...yum!

If I Have A Few Minutes By Myself I Will:::
Take a nap. LOL! I am exhausted today. Feels like my blood is made of iron. Going to bed early tonight.
New Recipe I Want To Try:::
I want to try a new bread recipe. It is from the Gwen's Nest blog. You can find the recipe HERE. It is a great recipe that a lot of people are raving about who are on the THM diet. I am going to try it soon.
In The Garden:::
Still waiting for my tomatoes to come in. My mama brought me a huge load of veggies from the farmer's market yesterday. I will be enjoying that all week for lunch!
Favorite Photo From The Camera:::
Me and my Ducky boy at his bday dinner.
Make sure to take time for yourself. When you put the kids down for a nap read a book that you have been wanting to read. Take a small nap or crochet or knit. I love to sew so I get something out and go to town.
Visiting With Blog Friends:::
I have been visiting Gwen's Nest very often. She has such a cute website and her recipes are so good.
My nephew's health.
VBS this week (the workers and the children).
Family members who are battling different things.
My husband and our marriage.
My children and their salvation.
