Twins Visit

Jackie and Stacie are twins, and they are my firends.
Jackie is a Homestead Wannabee, and Stacie is a Firefighter's Wife.
That's who they are on their blogs, and in real life. It is so obvious they love and care about each other, and I couldn't resist taking this picture of the genuine care they have for each other.
Jackie makes EVERYTHING from scratch including her own graham crackers and cheese,
and Stacie is busy raising 6 kids.

We made Thai Salad Rolls the first night they came.

Don't these look delicious...and beautiful? We put tofu in some and chicken others for our protien. The other ingredients are shredded cucumber, carrot, chopped cilantro, and rice noodles.

We talked non-stop from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon about gardening, children, homeschoooling, scheduling our lives for fitting more in with ease, husbands, God, Bible studies, friends, food and blogging. It was a divine weekend to make new memories because the last time they came (4 years ago) Jackie fell down our stairs in the dark thinking she'd stepped into the bathroom. She broke a piece of bone off her collarbone, and it took a very long time to heal. I love these two girls!

You are the epitome of a Titus 2 woman, Catherine. You'll never know how much this weekend changed my life and therefore the lives of my family. You are a treasure and I'm privileged to get to know you better. Thanks for a fantastic weekend. Can't wait to do it again! Love and Hugs, Jackie
