Our church's HeritaIge Weekend conference with author and historian Douglas Bond was a huge success! If you ever get the opportunity to hear Mr. Bond in person, I cannot more highly recommend that you do -- he's an amazing story teller who knows his Reformation and church history well.
Saturday evening was our traditional Heritage Weekend chili cook-off and dessert competition as well as our country dance (I shared a short video on IG of my Anna dancing (I'm DoleValleyGirl there if you want to take a look)). Those are AnnaLynn's cake pops, made completely from scratch (will have to ask here where she found the recipe and add the link later...). She didn't win, but they were delicous!
And to wrap up the festivities, together with a friend, I pulled off a taco bar for about 220 people following Sunday morning worship, which was, thanks to said friend's culinary talents (she's a caterer) rather tasty. :) The cupcakes? That was my Friday morning. 240 of them for Sunday's dessert. Many, many thanks to the young ladies who came to church early to frost them!
Yesterday the weather here turned chilly and they skies gray...yes, it's raining! We need it so badly here.
Baby shower bonnets have been blocked, and my Citron received some much needed attention...
Sunday afternoon was knitting by the fire with a glass of wine from a favorite local winery -- the perfect ending to a perfect weekend!
Praising God from Whom all blessings flow...how was your weekend?
