As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Note Card Party: Ice Cream

The photos I have chosen for Vee's August Note Card Party have a definite summer theme!

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

At our house, summer and homemade ice cream go hand in hand.
Join us as we dish some up...

How about some good old vanilla (so you can add toppings!)?

Or some of my favorite, chocolate?

Want to get crazy and eat some tutti-frutti?

No matter what kind you choose, 
it is a thrilling moment when the lid comes off 
and that creamy sweetness is revealed!  


The children like to sit on the trampoline when they eat their ice cream.
They have done it for years.

Can you find one that is different?

{Silly Uncle Ryan!}  

Do you have a blog?
Then you can join this month's party
over at Vee's Haven!

A Haven for Vee


  1. Great photos - now I want ice cream!

    Love the photo of Ryan with the kiddos!


  2. Homemade ice cream and the summertime ... perfect companions and great selections for Vee's party!

  3. My brother is just as much kid as the other trampoline eaters. ;) Silly Ryan. I want ice cream again!

  4. I've not yet had my breakfast. Now I'm thinking that a dish of ice cream would make a good one. Is your ice cream maker electric or do you use kid power? I'll have to go back and look more closely. Great theme for these muggy days of August!

  5. I realized as I looked through these that we haven't used our ice cream maker all season. In fact, I don't remember using it last year.


    Loved your choices, and I think all kids need a silly uncle. I had one!

  6. Oh, ice cream is my one weakness and you have me wanting to eat some now. : )

  7. Oh this makes me want some icecream! Reminded me of my days of young when my papa would sit outside and churn us kids some good ole vanilla icecream! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. How adorable, a trampoline and an ice cream social. All of your photos are wonderful. I think they are great as note cards, and it looks like it tasted wonderful from the expression on the children's faces.


  9. Wonderful photos of one of my favorites cream! I haven't had any homemade ice cream lately and it looks so good!!

  10. Oh how these photos bring back memories. Great shots and perfect for cards. This is a fun party. So glad to find such fine photos and fellow bloggers.

  11. Cheryl,
    Homemade ice cream is the BEST!

  12. That really looks like summertime fun! Beautiful photos!

  13. I have an ice cream maker but have not learned how to use it yet. I think I would rather just come over to yur house:)

  14. Sweet notecards! My DH and I were just talking about how no one makes homemade ice cream anymore.
    You proved us wrong!

  15. I have a sudden craving for chocolate ice cream.
