1st day of summer

The weather is BEAUTIFUL here today! Happy first day of summer to you all! Our weekend was good, we spent Sunday with my family at my sister's house and I loved just hanging out and playing with my nephew. He is the greatest!  Of course, seeing my parents and sister and bil was wonderful too. We are all  getting excited for the baby to arrive....will it be a boy/girl is the question??  My guess is Girl......but I was wrong last time..so who knows!

My SIL (brother's wife) is also expecting again! She is due in January...so two babies in a matter of months. Auntie D can't hardly believe it!! Love how our family is growing!

Have you heard about all the flooding taking place in NW Missouri? My prayers are with all of those who have had to move out of their homes and have lost farmland due to the rising waters.  I was very distracted yesterday looking at all of the pictures on facebook.  The town of Craig has been evacuating...this small town is just 10 miles from where I grew up. Praying for everyone affected!

Received some sad news yesterday too about our neighbor three houses up our street. He passed away at such an early age of 39. He had been sick this past winter with cancer and had just come home from the hospital after finishing his chemo treatments. Things were starting to look up for him and then this past weekend he developed a blood clot on his leg and passed away on Sunday.  We had only met him twice, but seemed like such a nice guy. My prayers go out to his family and friends. 

Last night, I had a Thirty-One party. The hostess decorated with the 4th of July theme and I thought it was so cute I had to take a picture!

She also made a yummy dip that I wanted to share with you all. So easy...so good! She made it last fall when she hosted a party...and I was hoping she would make it again...and she did!

Benno's Dip

1 16 oz. sour cream
1 pkg. Knorrs Spring Vegetable Soup (dry)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Jalapeno's to taste (marinated)

Mix all ingredients together. Cool for 1 hour or more. Then set out a while before serving. Serve with pita chips or the flat pretzels.  SO GOOD!

I love yummy dips in the summer time!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Did they give you the go-ahead to announce their pregnancy? I wondered how long it would take you to publicly spill the beans.
