Getting Crafty!

I am not a very crafty person. But I do love to sew. :)  I have been sewing some skirts and dresses for my girls. Then today I made a table runner! This will probably be my last sewing project until we get moved! It was really easy and took me 12 minuets to do! It is called a 10 min. table runner, I know I went 2 min. over,  but hey, it turned out really good! I had a Church in Missouri send me a little care package. In it was some material and some instructions on how to do the table runner. Me, being not all that great with written instructions, turned to YouTube. :)  We typed in 10 min. table runner and the first one that came up was the one I needed!   I thought I would share the link for all my crafty friends!    
 ~Here it is~ 
 Even if you aren't crafty but have a sewing machine, you should give it a try!   Here is what mine looked like after it was all done. 

Happy Fall!

You can almost feel the excitement!

  As our moving date is getting closer, the more excited we become about it!  
 We are excited about being able to be used in Ilulissat. But on the other hand we are sad to be leaving what has been home for a year and a half now. We have made friends, and they will be hard to leave. Lord willing though we will be back here in Sisimiut one day!

  Eli has a birthday on the 17th. Marty kinda sprung an idea of having a Kaffemik for him. So in amongst all our packing we will be having a party as well. :)  This will be a good way for Eli to say bye to his friends. He has been taking the move a little hard, but he is excited to be able to talk to the other missionaries kids, and to be able to understand them! :) 

 Please continue to pray for us as we pack and start our new adventure farther North here in Greenland! I will probably not be posting a lot on here because of the move. But when I do there will lots of pictures of our new home!

One month to go!

Marty bought our tickets for our flight to Ilulissat last night! It has been a long wait and an emotional one too.  We have the permission to move while the kids and my paperwork are pending. Marty's paperwork has been approved, so we can move with him, and just wait in Ilulissat to be approved. 

 We would appreciate your prayers as we still need some more money for a container! We are planning on loading the container on October 29th! So not too much longer. :)  We fly out November 2nd.

Sweet-n-Sour sauce

Tonight for dinner we had sweet-n-sour sauce with pork and rice. I got the recipe from Carole Shull, when we went for a visit to Ilulissat in May. My family LOVED it! So I made it tonight, and it was great! You can also use chicken, if you don't like pork. Our grocery stores are out of tomatoes and bell peppers, so I just made mine without them and it still turned out great! Also, I doubled the recipe, but if you have older kids I would say to triple it. 


1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup chicken broth or water
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 tsp oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tbs cornstartch
2 tbs cold water
1 med tomato, diced
1sm bell pepper, diced
1 can (8 oz) pineapple chunks in syrup, drained

1~Heat sugar, broth, vinegar, oil, soy sauce, salt, garlic, to a boil over med heat. 
 2~Mix cornstarch and water, stir into the sugar mix. Cook and stir it about 10 seconds or until it's thick
3~Stir in tomatoes, bell peppers, and pineapples. Heat until it is bubbling, and serve!
