Oh, Deer!

Rudolph came early this year--and without his red nose! Sorry, I don't know how to flip this picture, so just lean that head to the left and check it out!

Naughty and Nice

Oh, these wonderful kiddos can be both

And Nice

Don't you just love God's creations?!

Brandt Family

Here's a picture of the entire Brandt Family: Rakel, Halli, Justin & Lucas.

Cookin' with Creekside

Hello, all! Here's what's cookin': Monica, Serena and I were discussing the idea of a church family cookbook. Tell me that's not a YUMMY idea! I don't know if one already exists, but I think it would be a great fundraiser that we could have organized and printed for purchase before Mother's Day. We could also advertise it elsewhere (Walnut Grove, for example). Maybe we could leave a few books in the administration office there as a small token of appreciation and leave a flyer advertising it for sale as well, if they agree.

It would be a delicious way to get our name out into the community, advertising our lovely "Cookin' with Creekside" cover (in progress) with all of our contact information on front and a map to our new location on the inside cover. I have already begun collecting some of my favorite recipes and organizing them into taste-tempting categories.

Monica came up with the idea that it would make a great gift to welcome new members into our family. What a treat! We warm their hearts with love and bodies with food!

I know there's a paradise of potluck recipes to be organized, and we're so excited about putting it all together! Please let me know if you all agree.

I have emailed our church administrators and am hoping for hungry replies. Let's pray for big success!

Happy Halloween!

Okay, we'll give this a try:

We had so much fun at the Henke's on Halloween! Justin was missing in action (literally), so Lucas and I had to be "Bullfighters" without him, and Halli was the yummiest strawberry around!

Thanks again for a fun-filled evening!
