Gramp's Syrup

My dad makes the most amazing waffle syrup. We all love it. I thought I would share the recipe with you. If you make it make sure you let me know what you think. Here are the ingredients that you will need.
In a saucepan put 1 cup sugar, 1 cup corn syrup, 1/4 cup water and bring that all to a boil.
Boil for 2 minutes until it becomes clear.

Turn off the heat and add 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
and 1/2 cup of evaporated milk and whisk until smooth.

Ladle over your waffles and enjoy. So yummy! If you have leftovers you can store them in the fridge for the next time you make waffles.

Swimming Lessons

Last Friday Ky finished up 2 weeks of swimming lessons. She has come so far this year compared to last year. Last year she wouldn't hardly put her face in the water and this year she has turned into a fish. It helps that she had amazing teachers. Jayne and Katrina do such an amazing job!




Summer Freckles are the best!

 Thank you so much ladies for your hard work. We are so blessed that these classes are available and that you help so many kiddos learn to swim. If you live in my neck of the woods I would highly recommend swimming lessons with the Carey's, they rock!!

Coconut Pie

A Friend of mine was over the other day for supper and I made this pie and she was like, "Girl, I need this recipe!" So I thought I would share it with you all as well. One of the things I love most about this pie is that it makes its own crust and is super easy. Here are the ingredients. Flour, Milk, Sugar, Coconut, Butter, 2 eggs, Baking Powder, a pinch of salt and vanilla. 
Put a stick of butter/margarine in a pie dish and melt in the microwave.

When melted, pour most of it in a bowl leaving a little to coat the pie dish.

Add to the butter/margarine 2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, pinch of salt and 1 teaspoon vanilla and whisk it together until smooth. Then add 1 cup of coconut.

Pour back into the pie dish and bake on 350 degree for 30 minutes or until set.
Let cool slightly slice and enjoy. We love to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. Let me know if you try it and Enjoy!!

Tribe Weekend Part #2

When we are together we do so many different things. Everything from crafting to thrift store shopping. One thing there is never a short supply of is visiting and laughter! Lots and Lots of Laughter and visiting!

And Selfies of course and...

Silliness...








Did I mention we can visit? Seriously we can visit ANYWHERE including IKEA outdoor living area! Ha!



It may have been only a couple of days but the fellowship and love is always good for my soul. It is so great to have a tribe of women that will lift you up, encourage you, stand beside you and love you no matter what. Seriously, God has blessed me. Love you my sisters and I am looking forward the next time we will be together!
