For more Favorite things go visit Suzanne over at Living to tell the story....

1. Fresh Peaches. There is a Peach Farm in Southern Illinois that has the best peaches...I'm making peach jam this weekend. YUM!

2. Sunny Days. We haven't had alot of rain this summer so therefore the sunny days are really nice. Something about the sun shining bright.

3. Spending the entire day with Madison. We did this on Wednesday. Miller went to momma's and she and I had manicures, and lunch together. Then we went shopping ending the day with dessert at Dairy Queen...a great day indeed.

4. Taking Miller to the Toy Store. Madison had gymnastics one day this week and we had an hour to went to the toy store and walked around for an hour. We both had a ball. I enjoy little times like this with my kids.

5. Having friends over dinner. I love to entertain. We had some friends over last weekend for dinner. We ate, hung out on the deck, drank some sangria and talked some more...enjoying our time with friends is priceless.

So there you have favorites this past week. We are getting back to school supplies today for Madison. Lunch out with my two favorite kids....and then to a local pottery shop to let them paint something great.
Tomorrow Madison has a car wash to work so me and dad are taking Miller bowling. Enjoying those last days of summer with each other. We have a picnic at a local park tomorrow night and then church and a family reunion on Sunday.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
See you Monday!

Great things to love. I took Ryan to the toy store at the mall with a bunch of rolled up pennies (he and his uncle rolled them up together). He picked out a black car. When we went to pay for it the teenager behind the register said they can't take rolled up pennies. I told him that I would be glad to break them all open so he could count them if he wanted to. He quickly backed off and Ryan got his car.

Suggestion...go to the Dollar Tree and look over by the party supplies. They have the neatest silly visors (see my post from the weekend)for $1 a piece. We had more fun w/our hats this past weekend. Miller would love it, not so sure about Madison! lol

Lovely fives. Summer fruit is my favorite. I'm going to have to check the peaches at the market this week. I enjoy having people over for a meal too! Have a great weekend.

Wow, you have a busy weekend!

Your days with your kids sound so fun and bring back fond memories.

I don't entertain nearly as much a I should. It seems like so much work preparing, but it is so enjoyable once the friends are there.

Wish I had some fresh peaches right now. I'd ask my husband to make a peach cobbler. :-)

Thanks for sharing.

I love entertaining too, I always feel so content afterwards. Sounds like a good week.

Tina Leigh said...

Peach jam...I bet Danny would like that. I wonder why he hasn't thought to make any.

Susanne said...

Sounds like a lovely week, Jen, spending time with family and friends. And I love peach jam. Have never tried to make it myself though.
