What a week!! I didn't get much blogging done as we were out and about every day!!!  These are some of my "Cookie Kids".

Then Monday evening we had a wonderful dinner at Knott's Berry Farm Chicken Dinner Restaurant with friends from up North.

These are special friends who have become "family".  As Don has married, baptized, dedicated and shared with this family the entire 27 years we pastored in Hughson.  They had spent some vacation time at Disneyland, and I'll share some of the fun gifts they gave us in another post.

Wednesday evening we spent the evening enjoying a "Special Night" at Sunny Hill's High School.  Our grandson, Elijah was one of 18 candidates for "Mr. Sunny Hills".  It was a fun show of dancing, talent and formal wear.  We are very proud of this young man.

Hardly time for cooking ~ So made a quick oven dinner last night.  Panko crusted Tilapia, and red potatoes, onions and bell peppers.

Thirty minutes later~~a delicious dinner.

Last but not least ~ I received a darling letter from Elizabeth.  As you know she's 98 but even though her hand is shaky she took the time to send me a letter telling me how happy she is I got a Kitchen Aid and along with the letter ~ another recipe.  What a dear lady who has become like a mom to me.

How was your week?  Ours was a "whirlwind" but a delightful one!!


  1. Wanda, So glad you had a wonderful time with your friends. Your dinner looked very good and healthy. If I were a kid living near you, and you are making cookies to give would be my sweetheart. LOL. That is kind of how I met my guardian angel...she was passing out cake to us kids in the neighborhood. God blessed me with her. She lives on in my heart and good memories. Bless you, xoxo,Susie

  6. On Monday I had my doubts as to whether or not I'd make it through the week, but every day got better. I made some friends, washed some feet, and on Monday my new friend Alissa and I are going out to see if we can find some scrubs for clinical.
