Quote for the week:

 “With Thee, O my God, is no disappointment.

I shall never have to regret that I have loved Thee too well.”

     ~Henry Martyn~

Book of the Week:

This book is a very fun, very interesting read!  It is doubly neat because the Gosselins are Christians : ) 

Favorite Websites

    “Inspirations of the Past” has a page of free old fashioned clip art.  Click here to see it.

 This has been the best face care system I have ever tried, and I have tried a bunch of them!  While my skin is not absolutely perfect like the face care systems like to advertise , this one has cleared it up the best of anything I have tried.  And when my face breaks out, if I use the whole system that night, in the morning any new pimples are gone, or very much reduced.  It used to be days before they would go away.  It does cost a lot in the beginning, but it lasts a very long time.  We have three girls using it, and one set has lasted us about 3 months.  Click here to see the system we use.

   I know this is a funny thing to blog about, but since I have had so much trouble in this area, and this has helped so much, I thought maybe there would be other girls who would benefit : )  Mommy also likes to use their soaps and perfumes.  They smell soooo good!  Which of course means that Mommy smells very good, to : D

Something Strange

but very true about the Farmgirls 

Grilled Cheese and Marshmallow Sandwiches

~make just like a regular grilled cheese, only top the cheese with mini marshmallows before grilling .

I know it sounds very strange, but our babysitter introduced this to us, partly because that’s what she grew up with.  Her parents had a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches when they first got married, and Mr. L.  got very tired of them, so Mrs. L. added the marshmallows for a change : D  It is one of those things that I have grown up eating, so there is nothing strange about it, but when I tell other people about it, they think it sounds disgusting!  So I guess it is one of those things you have to try to believe that it really does taste good .

    We tried the Grilled Cheese Marshmallow sandwiches today for lunch, and 4 out of 6 liked it! My parents weren't crazy about it, and I can't see myself craving it, but it was rather good. Thank you for sharing it! It also happens to be a good way to use stale marshmallows. 🙂

    Have a very bright, very cheerful day!
