Summer Means !!!!!

Summer means 
Vacation Bible School

My week has been kind of busy!
We are holding VBS at our church this week.
We began last Wednesday with a pool pre-registration with over 60 kids. 
Preparing hot dogs and the fixing--drinks.
You know when your daughter is the Director you are 
assigned ask with a SMILE to help.
I received the assignment of cooking 
for all VBS workers and families. 
The church provides a meal every night of VBS so
 the families do not have to worry about meals that week.

Of course that means menu for 5 nights 
plus refreshments for Parent's night 
Our Theme for the week is Agent D3

So keeping with the Spy theme
My menu:
Safe House Burgers
Pocket Litter Pasta
Undercover Taco Salad
Double Agent Ham
Cover Up Sandwiches

Spy Hopping  Refreshments

I have 3 wonderful ladies that have been a great help.
 Could not have done it with out them

I keep forgetting to take picture but here is couple I did take.
More later as you have to see the room decorations.

Director (In Red) receiving words of wisdom! 
This group provides the snacks for the kids ever night.

Mr. Spy entertaining kids during snacks.
Borrowed my decorations for his time to shine.

Director--Registration Director--Snack Director
adding up attendance.
 In the back ground you can see my daily food supply.
Our church members are very generous they provide many 
of the items for the meals and 
snacks for our hard working staff. 

This is what it looked like when
!!!!140 kids !!!!
invaded the Sanctuary on the 2nd night

We are just a small town church in Texas!!!!

Saw a saying that said,  I  am tired but it is 
VBS tired but what
 a blessing that comes out of this tired. 
Say a prayer for kids and all the workers.

Hope to post more later in the week.

Thanks for stopping by Y'all!

Love to hear and see about your VBS experience's.

Summer Whimsy Table X 2


I have not posted in so long that I may have forgot how. Hope it is like riding a bike you never forget.

I did not want to miss Cuisine Kathleen challenge for a summer whimsy table. So I decided this morning to set my table on my deck. Of course it was Texas blazing hot even in the morning. I couldn't even come in and cool off as our air conditioner decide to only blow hot air. Our favorite friendly air conditioner twin repairmen is here now. Yes he and his twin and father have a air conditioner company and I think we have them on speed dial. Always glad that they wear shirts that have there name embroidery on them as I can't ever tell them apart. How did I ever survive  with a swamp cooler in Texas!! 

 Oh!!! guess I better get to my Table Scape 

I searched the house and 
did not buy one thing.
Table is set for two maybe we will
 enjoy supper when it gets cooler.
The table cloth was a Home Goods find 
again I shopped the house.
Plates which have four
patterns were purchased 
at Stein Mart several years ago.
Glasses got them at Wal Mart 
at least 6 years ago.
Love the little metal chair candle holders,
can always find fun things at DG.

Buffet Serving area-----Cabinets we removed 
from my living area when we moved in.


Just a quick Whimsy table had fun 
on a spur of the moment
 Thanks Kathleen for the challenge

Yes that is a golf course that
 you see in the background.
Sure was glad that the golfers were
 hitting the fairway and not my deck.

Special Guest Table Scape

Now for the 2nd table!!!
My junking buddy put a cute summer table 
together that I want to share.

Table on her deck!
 Same set up with a little change 
but she moved 
inside to her dinning table

 Love the bright colors. 
Tablecloth is a vintage buy from eBay.
 Daisy glasses great find at
 a local antique shop.
White daisy plate GW & napkin rings Fitz & Floyd 
on line outlet shop.
Chargers and place mates or from Pier One.
Got to get this girl blogging!

We are Junking/Shopping partners and do like the same things 
which gets us in trouble sometime.

Hope you have enjoyed our
Whimsy Summer tables X 2
