A Day On The Farm!!!!!!!

Hello sweet ladies, 

our farm is NEVER the same when our grandkids are here for Grammie and Poppa Camp! Memories are made that none of us will ever forget! After Thanksgiving dinner they stay for the weekend. We love having them. So far the boys have started to take the roof off off the front of the house..  It was damaged by a horrible ice storm years ago. The boys had so much fun giggling and chattering. They punched the roof with whatever they could find....... all boys!  

Our granddaughter Ellie made this dessert for us.  It was very very good......saving it for next fall. Here is the recipe Pumpkin better than.............cake.

In the morning we had Bible time....that chatter that goes on at this time is priceless! Then Vitaliy asked about satan. Poppa explained how he was created as an Angel and rebelled against God. Then we talked about the importance in reading the Word of God, so you would be able to stand against the temptations the enemy sends our way. We also talked about how when we don't read the Word we will get weak. It was precious to hear everything they had to say. Ian said that if we don't read the Word satan has an easier target.  Amazing......if we let them talk...and they have been in the Word......they have much to share also!
Here are the verses Poppa taught from.  

 The Son (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.  For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Collosians 1:15-20

Today the boys are working on their fort...digging holes for the poles...and putting up the floor........they are so excited!!!!!! Ellie and our girls are decorating and cleaning the house........thanking the Lord for all His gifts! 

Enjoying our last few days at has been the best vacation!



  1. It's wonderful that you and your husband can do these camps for your gandkids. We also have been blessed. Our kids have gone up the lane to their Grandparent's house on Wednesdays for lunch, since they were toddlers. My husband's mom started it I think when our third child was born, and she wanted to give me a break. She would keep them a good portion of the afternoon. Our oldest is now seventeen, and they still go up most weeks. I look forward to someday doing something similar for my grandkids if the Lord tarries. I'm glad you and your husband are helping hide God's word in their hearts in addition to having loads of fun.

    Thanksgiving blessings (a little late),

  2. What wonderful blessings and memories you and your husband are setting in these sweet grands hearts! Keeping them strong in God's Word! Wow! You have house cleaners as well! The cake looks awesome!
    Blessings and hugs!

  3. First..before I forget (hee-hee) I "love"your new header! Beautiful! What a blessing you are to your grandchildren are providing a very sturdy foundation! And this will be with them 'forever'...

    Yumm..that dessert looks wonderful!' Bless those girls in your family! And looks like the boys are doing a great job on your porch and their fort!

    Blessings my friend,

  4. What a lovely time you all had. Cake looks delicious. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

  5. What a blessing you and Mr. Phil are to these precious grand children! Living in darkness is so sad and we should all take your advice and read the Word. I do a little study by myself each day and it helps take the edge off the sad situation I work in each day! I like the question about satan. I also love the Scripture explaining in Luke 10:18 how satan did fall like lightening from heaven. How different he would have been had he not tried to compete with the Lord!
    Cake looks yummy! Must try that for the next fall gathering!I make a jello dessert my grandson Colton loves. I noticed the empty serving dish in the sink this morning! I think my older son finished it off! I am glad that they like it so well!
    I noticed one of the boys wearing shorts in your photo! That would be my son Jeremy! He is running his fan in the bedroom and it is 30 degrees outside! Brrr.....
    Nick arrived safely here and now back at school. He met his friend Anna from Croatia. She is a tennis player and had a similar flight from Colorado Springs to Wichita. I am glad they are safely back at school. Praise God for Eli (he is from Wichita)who picked them up and returned them to school. The bus did not arrive until six p.m. and their flights were early morning ones. The flights to Wichita from Denver are few and far between!
    I love knowing you and wish you a beautiful and peaceful week. God Bless each Stubbs phamily member today and everyday! Love and Hugs Anne
