Tracy / September 16, 2017

    This is a quick blog post about Breakfast/Lunch/Snack Rotation for our home. Lately, I have been getting lots of questions about how I meal plan. Some are the regular questions I get about exactly how we feed 13 folks each day (my 3 older children are grown and in homes of their own). The latest questions are just…

Today, I am reviewing My Great Big God for Tommy Nelson. I’m currently in a season of cleaning. At some point, I will fill in all the little details of life that have been going on, (well, some really BIG changes for our family). For now, I’m continuing to clean out every little thing and try to catch up on…

Book Review- Night Night, Train

Tracy / August 15, 2017

  I’ve enjoyed our new books from Tommy Nelson this month. The first was My Great Big God and this one, Night Night, Train. As posted before, I adore adding sweet books to our library for my little folks. We actually have time set apart each day for them to sit and “read” their books quietly. This week, these books…

Sheryl’s Baked Oatmeal

We wrap all of these in plastic wrap, cover them with foil and label them before we place them into the freezer. www.LinesFromTheVine.com

I’m sharing our favorite baked oatmeal recipe. It was given to us by a very good friend. There are those friends who have just been there forever. They may not be part of your life every single day but they are in your heart. Such is life with my friend, Sheryl. More than 20 years ago, she was part of…

Shhh…I have a little secret. I’m the Bath Bomb Lady. (In my best “I’m Batman” voice. )                             *Smile* So, it’s not so much a secret to the folks who know us in person. We have gone over the top in pinks and sparkles. We are loving…

Happy Birthday, Jonathan!

Jon's 10th Birthday LinesFromTheVine.com

Jonathan Patrick is already another year older. His 9th year has practically flown by. These 9 year old’s have proven to be quite a challenge for Paul and I. Terrible 2’s? Not in this house. Three year old’s tend to be very “active” and require a lot of attention. They are smart enough to get into pretty much everything while…

Happy 26th Anniversary

My, how I love this man. April 4, 2017 marked our 26th year of marriage. I met him when I was just 14 and to this day, he remains my best friend. This year, Paul took me to dinner at a nice place in Hoover and then we went up to Vulcan. It was absolutely beautiful and I could have…

April 17, 2017

Hello, old friends. It’s been quite a long time. Life has taken so many twists and turns in recent months. Each morning has brought challenges and blessings (of course, those challenges are blessings if you believe that all things happen for the good of those who love Him!). I have a new grand-boy. We’re knee deep in our little soap…

Exodus 20

Tracy / November 23, 2016

Exodus 20 is our latest scripture memory passages. A number of months back, our pastor was teaching through this section. Each week, someone would volunteer to recite this section of scripture. My older children knew The 10 Commandments. Some of my middle kiddos had to work a bit on it and my littles were learning just from listening to the…
