New blog

It's been awhile since I've had time to write. I've missed blogging, but so many things in our life has changed the past year. We had a baby, then the man deployed when the baby was 6 weeks old, then two of our kids were diagnosed with celiac disease, we went to Texas for a few months, the man came back when the baby was 9 months old, and we moved to another state. We entered the gluten free world a little over a year ago and my most of my time has been spent in the kitchen cooking, trying new recipes, researching the right mix of GF grains to make an okay bread, and nursing a growing baby. Now that the baby has weaned and entered into toddler-hood I've found myself with more time on my hands. I've started a new blog to write about two things near and dear to me. Gluten free food and food storage. We've always had several months supply of food because I have always bought in bulk to save money and stocked up on items when they were on sale and I had coupons. But now, now it's different. There aren't that many coupons for GF foods and GF foods are not generally cheap. There is a peace knowing you have enough to feed your family if something bad happens. But when we went GF we gave away nearly all of our food, and started over. I found that it was hard to store GF foods. I searched high and low for a gluten free food storage blog. I never found one. So, I am starting my own. Hopefully, Lord willing it will be a help to some other GF families out there. Check it out, you may learn something new.

He's back!

After 7 months my husband is back! We were all excited to go pick him up. He's been home a week now and life is almost normal again.

The kids waiting for daddy to come.


The buses coming!! This always makes me cry. When the buses come everyone
starts screaming and whistling.

Munchie cried. But she is slowly getting used to him.

Happy to be home again ;)

And I'm back.

It's been a while since my last post in Dec. Lots have happened since then. My husband deployed with the Marine Corps. in January. I had a difficult time recovering after having our third baby who was 11lbs. and 10 oz. Nursing was difficult but we finally got it down. Levi got diagnosed with Celiac disease in Feb. Annabelle followed after him with a diagnosis in June. We went to Texas to visit family we haven't seen in three years and stayed 6 weeks. Caroline got her first tooth and started crawling there. Life has been busy but it's so good.

And now, standing.
