Random- Photo Help, Tea Parties, and a Little Inspiration

Good Monday Morning! This morning started early for me.
I couldn't sleep real well last night and woke up at 4:54 AM!!! So, I just got the day going.
I had a sweet prayer time, journal time, and scripture reading. I am reading through the Bible this year. I am in Eccl. and Hebrews. But I had a Psalm today.

I am sharing our Tea Time snapshots from Thursday. We do this every Thursday. I made Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts and cut up berries. The kids wanted Lemonade so that is what we had for our "tea"!

We are reading through a really great book of old legends of music. Super neat read.

On a different note.....I need some tips or advice!!! I am wanting to start organizing my current photos. I am guilty of taken hundreds of photos and they just stay stored on my computer or camera disk. I want to start an album/scrapbook/book of each year. I had been thinking of this and Billie Jo (Blogger friend) shared an idea that I love. Check it out here. Scroll down to the end of post and you will see her idea.  I feel overwhelmed with previous years and really dislike I do not have current photos laying around of family. Any tips?? Do you scrapbook? Put in boxes, albums, make Photo books, digital scrapbook?  How do you keep up with printing?

Just a little inspiration from my morning read today.

Psalm 73:26 "My flesh and my heart my fail, but God is the strength of my heart (soul) and my portion forever."

No matter what God is our strength. Even once this life we live stops HE is our PORTION. Aim for your Inheritance in Christ!



  1. I hope you are able to get some more sleep tonight and not be up as early in the morning. ((((HUGS)))) YOur "tea time" looks great! Must be the season of tea parties because your's is the 3rd post I have read this morning about them. I love it!

    1. Me too! I am going through a flare up I think! Or the beginning of one. I can always tell because of my sleep. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Wish we were closer so we could crash your afternoon tea!!

    I feel you on the picture dilemma. My blog is my scrapbook of sorts. I'll print a picture here and there to frame but other then that they sit in file on the computer. I'd like to print a yearly book from snapfish or shutterfly. I just haven't taken the time to do it.

    1. Oh me too!!!!! I wish I could crash on your porch!

  3. I love your afternoon tea, Chrissy!
    I am anxious to start our tea time back up when school starts. : )
    And yes...I have found thatthe monthly print out of our pictures at has been a lifesaver!
    Have a cozy evening, my friend.

  4. I love the pics !! Kiddos !! My heart !! The food looked great ! Oh yeah I need to do pictures also !! I started then did not finish .�� Let me know if you come good idea ! Love you !!

  5. What a delightful tea! The donuts you made look wonderful! Your kids look so happy and delighted to be part of such fun efforts on your part! The Indian village is very nice creative work! What a great learning experience for them.

    As for pictures.. I have scrapbooked for years. However, since everything went digital a few years ago, I have stopped paper scrapbooking so much, and now I do digital. Snapfish is my favorite one that I use. I just upload photos and create my album there. It really is a nice memory for the family to have. I also like the idea of printing out a months' worth of pictures each month that Billy Jo shared. It might be a cheaper way to keep up with the pictures for sure! Thanks for sharing this today.. hope you get better sleep soon :)

  6. There's an app called Free Prints. They ship you free 4 by 6 prints of photos from your phone with shipping from $1.99-$9.99. Your first order (can't remember if it was up to 6 prints or up to 10, but I got 6) are free with free shipping too. I have an invite code, it's dpate27

  7. I love the tea party, Oh what fun! Glad you found some rest, take care sweet friend.
