Not Celebrating Halloween Isn’t as Easy as You Think

We don’t “celebrate” or “observe” Halloween in any respect in our family. We do not believe that Christian-izing any pagan holiday or traditions glorify God in any way. There was a time when we thought we could mix the two, but now we just don’t feel like we can and have it be pleasing to God.

Milk: It Does a Body Good?

Posted by Hallee on Oct 24, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, Natural Health

In the mid-nineteenth century, dirty dairies providing tainted milk to cities caused outbreaks of tuburculosis and other sickness that resulted in a number of fatalities. Rather than setting good standards for clean dairies and good handling practices, the solution was to pasteurize milk.

My Cleaning Kit

Posted by Hallee on Oct 18, 2012 in Housekeeping

My home has three levels – and I’m up and down two flights of stairs several times a day. I do not have the storage space on the main floor or on the top floor in which to store cleaning supplies, so I have a “Cleaning Kit” that I carry around with me.

Food Battles

Posted by Hallee on Oct 16, 2012 in Parenting, Raising boys

My mom told me, years ago when Kaylee was just a baby, that there were two areas that a child felt like they had control: eating and sleeping. With everything else, they could not control you or your responses, but for some reason, they feel like they can control food and sleeping.

Menu Monday 15 OCT 2012

Posted by Hallee on Oct 15, 2012 in menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 15th. I cannot believe that October is already half gone! As far as desserts go, I’m going to make a batch of pumpkin bread for a friend. I also have children complaining about the empty cookie jar, so I’m going to make a batch of Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!

I’m Angry

Posted by Hallee on Oct 11, 2012 in Christian Faith, Life

Our church, like churches for a couple millenia, has gone through a split. Someone got angry about something – felt offended by something, people started talking, stirring up strife, and before you knew it, 60 families left the church. It happens. We’re human. We get offended — and we offend. It’s just one of those quirky things about a societal way of life.
