In September 2015 our family rented a cabin in Helen GA. Since then, we have wanted to go back to the quaint little Bavarian town. We wanted to explore more of the Helen and the nearby attractions.

For Spring Break this year we actually took a vacation! In years past we have enjoyed being home with no school & did day trips on some of our days off. This year we rented a house in North Charleston. Morganne wanted to do some shopping on historic King St. We enjoyed going in a various shops. We did pop in to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream shop for a quick snack before heading on to the City Market area.
Mother wasn’t too keen on her Rainbow Buttermilk, but Morganne didn’t let the tartness stop her from finishing it off.
After we enjoyed King St & our ice creams, we were ready to tackle the City Market & end our day at the Joe Riley Waterfront Park & the Pineapple Fountain.Continue reading
We celebrated the birth of our Lord & Savior by reading Scripture nightly & using our Advent wreath. This year, Morganne & I along with a friend from church, did an Advent Bible Study that walked us through the Bible to Christ’s birth. This really opened my eyes to see God’s promises & how He has worked all through out history to bring redemption & reconciliation for us to Him.
For Christmas Eve & Christmas morning, I made Cherry Sweet Rolls for breakfast. This was a hit & very well be a new tradition for holiday breakfasts.
