Calm After the Storm

Just a day after Hurricane Issac passed through the gulf coast, this is what the sky over Baton Rouge looks like as we return home from delivering a generator to David's parents who are still without power.  As we passed through horrible flood waters that are continuing to rise and watching news coverage of those that have lost their homes due to rising waters and levee breakes, we can't help but realize how blessed we are that God spared us from this storm. 

It still amazes me how durring the entire storm, no matter where it moved and swirled...it continuted to surround us but we stayed sheltered from the storm.  Amazing.  Truely.

School Days

It's that time of year!
 Zane's First Day of School!  He was super anxious so I made him a special snack for when he got home!
He enjoyed it so much!  Since he liked his little bento box so much, I think I'll do more bento box snacks for him this year.

Perfect Summer Supper

Living in South Louisiana this is indeed the perfect summer supper.  Growing up as a little girl I can remember my daddy coming home for lunch on Saturdays from his part time job at Ocmands Jewelry store.  I would make him spreads of cheese and crakers, baby corn, pickles, olives, whatever he had in the fridge.  It's no wonder it's a comfort food for me now and no surprise my kids love it now too;)  I love that I can create these memories with them and carry on these traditions with them.
