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.

Sunday Snapshots: This and That

Some random shots from our Sunday...

The children's table, set with after-Christmas clearance plates from Target.

Sweet faces around that table.
Note one particular boy who is trying to stave off Aunt Kati's kisses. :)

Still avoiding kisses.

And still avoiding kisses!

Drinking pickle juice!
(Three of my four children have done this. It makes my face cringe to watch it.)

A very loose tooth (which was out by the end of the afternoon). 

Dessert time.

Pineapple napkins. (Swoon.) It's the little things.

A mystery. How did he get there?


  1. I'm not really into napkins (not that I'm anti-napkin, you understand) but those are some fantastic ones!

  2. Fun pics! That loose tooth made me cringe a! Not sure about drinking pickle juice...I may just have to try it sometime :)

  3. I enjoyed this. I have never had a pickle juice drinker, lol, but have a feeling I have a grandkid or two who would enjoy that. LOVED the napkins. Enjoy your week!

  4. I'm going to say right now that I am the lone hater of pickle juice. Truthfully, I don't even enjoy pickles (except the homemade variety!).

  5. the pickle juice. shudder. I love your Christmas decor...pineapple napkins are so cute. I have a friend who has pineapples carved into her dining chairs. I bet she would like these. And I like the idea of kid's Christmas plates. I'm going to have to remember that.

  6. <3. <3. <3. I love adding a splash of pickle juice to macaroni salad, or potato salad! I have been known to enjoy the pickle juice from Bread and butter pickles, especially Trader Joe's. ;-)

  7. Pickle juice drinkers run in your family! Those napkins are just charming--they have an old world look about them.

  8. Fun, fun!

    How did that little guy get into the green jimmys? Hmmmm

    And swoon! Those napkins are gorgeous!


  9. Ha! My face looked like a pickle when I saw the pickle juice sipping. Too funny! Those napkins are fabulous! Looks like lots of fun around the table.

  10. Some fun shots, my husband has been know to drink pickle juice as well, it gives me chills every time I watch him do it. Good times

  11. How can he deny his auntie a kiss? One measly kiss...gheeeshhh... Hang in there, Kati. We don't kiss'em because they want the kisses; we kiss them because they need the kisses. That's my story!

    I like the pineapple napkins, too.
