Our life in Pictures

I thought I would share a day in our life....

Tea with Sir Knight and Maid Elizabeth
before they are off to work

Time spent in the
Word and then on my knees

A breakfast of German Pancakes
Master Hand Grenade doing copywork
in school
Miss Calamity hard at work

My afternoon job - sewing for my business
Master Calvin - busy at play

Sir Knight working out the kinks in
our can sealer

Ready for afternoon tea (yes, we have tea
twice a day!)
Sitting down to dinner
Filling hot water bottles for bed
All cozy with his bottle - Good Night!

That is our life in a nutshell!


  1. With five kids, you may get a chuckle out of this, but when I view the pictures of your family and your life, it brings me to a place of peace. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Enola Gay

    You are one of the wealtheist people I know. The assets you possess greatly surpass the value of gold and silver. Guard them with care and prayer.

  3. Tea twice a day.
    I have had 'tea time' with my bunch in the past, I need to reinstate it. Such a nice time to relax and talk. We need more of that.
    Thanks for the pictures. :)

  4. Thank you for sharing your life with us. You have blessed my day and brought peace to my heart

  5. Thank you so much for sharing, Enola! captaincrunch said it perfectly! Thank you for blessing my heart today. :)

  6. Thank you for sharing. You have a beautiful family. I like that you take the time to have tea together. I always say there is nothing a cup of tea or a good night's sleep won't improve. God bless.

  7. Please tell us more about the can sealer. Did some looking around on the web and found them but would like to know more about which one you have and how you are using it.



  8. Is that the can sealer from Lehman's? Just wondering what you can also. Lehman's no longer carries the #10 sealer which is what I was looking for.

  9. Your German pancakes look delicious! I have one on the menu at our restaurant. The customers absolutely love them...what recipe do you use for yours? I'm always looking to tweak mine and make it better which is why I ask.

    Have you tried putting apples in it and covering it with cinnamon sugar before you flip it over? It is absolutely wonderful that way. You just have to flip it upside down on the plate when it comes out of the oven...It's one of my guests favorite menu items.

    Thanks for sharing your day with us...=)

  10. glad to see someone else using hot water bottles.

  11. My 11yo uses a hot water bottle; I use a toddler. ;)

    I was wondering if you could post your recipe for scones? You teatime looks so inviting!


  12. I love all of your posts, but I especially love the glimpses into your daily life.

    The cool thing about the internet is that I can communicate with people from very far away. The sad thing is that I would love to get with some of those people in real life . . . and we're very far away!

    Thanks for sharing.

  13. Nice to see actual real life photos of how people live their day to day lives. I always say that the devil's in the details.

    Might that be a treadle-type sewing machine?

    Sometimes I just can't bear to get into the ice cold bed so I preheat it with bricks I put on the woodburning stove. What a life!
