Busy…non-stitching…..days…………….

Yup…the days are flying by and family “mile markers” continue to be observed. Namely, those summer birthdays that seem to be a challenge when trying to fit in a party/gathering when so many obligations are already in place. I’ll just share our most recent birthday gathering…eldest GS, whose 20-something birthday, brought the ‘fam’s’ spotlight his direction last Friday eve. IMG_9391 His deer stands and trail-cams dot our property ever vigilant/watching the local white-tail comings and goings. Gifts for this age absolutely must have a certain flair or they become just another day, so (along with the obligatory card and $$ insert) there had to be something that has become a valued commodity with him…..and his younger bro——yup….homemade dinner rolls!!!!! This has been quite the deal for many years!!!! IMG_9392 First, the card……then…..IMG_9393 IMG_9394 And, within a short time, this occurred……………………….IMG_0874.JPG But, wait! Younger brother’s family birthday  observance came about too quickly to bake……..so……….IMG_9394 - Copy       a slightly belated package came his way!

Now…off to pack for tomorrow morning’s exit to the Black Hills. Til next we meet…….please, keep those prayers in force for so many in harm’s way these days…..from hurricanes, earthquakes, huge forest fires and more…………………

  2. What a fantastic idea, these rolls. They mean more than money. You are building memories, showing these two young men how precious they are to you.

    Safe travels to the Hills.

      Love those “light bulb moments”!!! They come so rarely!!! And you are totally correct….building memories, not base on $$$, has a value that cannot be counted!! We’re in Belle Fourche and watching the Vikings…..well DH is…………………….

  3. Happy birthday! The cake is perfect for a hunter:)! We all are worried about the crazy weather. Stay safe!❤️

    Those rolls look like the perfect birthday gift, YUM! Safe travel to the hills, Enjoy!

  5. I live in Texas and my mom now resides in TN and my favorite gift every Christmas is a tin of her gingerbread men and almond-flavored Christmas trees. That gift is more precious than anything money can buy. Be sure to write down the recipe for the rolls and give it in a card as a wedding gift. Add your name and the year of creation of when you began making them. It is a treasure that will last long after you and keep you “alive” for many years to come – just like your quilts.
