A Weekend of Blessings…

What a fun weekend it has been!

My oldest daughter and her boyfriend came for a visit, picking up my middle daughter along the way – so our household was once again full!

Tim taught Alex how to make Potica on Saturday…I peeked in at the process off and on, smiling at how cute these two are together – what a special moment they’ll remember for a lifetime.

Tim has been baking Potica for our Young Life Sweet Spring Auction for the past few years. He donates 10 loaves which sell for $35 each – what a wonderful talent to share! …And they go quickly – he’s known for his fantastic Potica’s. It’s his Grandma Mary’s recipe which he tweeked a little! πŸ™‚

And while they were making Potica…I took Tom (Alex’s boyfriend) shopping for a Mother’s Day present for his Mom. Of course, he helped me pick out a high school graduation present for his sister at the same time, so we covered all our bases and had a nice time together!

We had Tim’s parents and Grandma Shepel over for dinner that evening…and get this…Alex and Tom made dinner! A scrumptious breaded pork cutlet meal with an Eggplant Casserole…YUMMMMMY!

We finished off our Saturday with a round of Spicy Uno – thanks to Samantha for teaching us the rules…however, Tim and I decided we may be too old for this game!

This morning Tim made everyone French Toast and Bacon and then loaded up Tom and Alex’s truck (ok his parents truck…) with two Adirondack Chairs. Yes, those are the chairs you see the two of them sitting in (their Christmas present). Beautiful aren’t they? Tim built them! (This picture was taken at Christmas…most of our snow is gone now…Yayyyy Spring!)

And then they drove off…

Tom, Alex and Sam…

Back to work and back to school.


And it was back to just Tim, Gabi and I.


The house is quiet again.


Until next time…


But for now, I’m one happy and thankful Mom…
