When a baby comes into our life it is a beautiful gift from God, and what a special gift little Nate will be to you and Joe. Nate is getting the greatest family to be a part of, two of the most loving Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and close friends, including all the puppies,  he will be loved and cherished everyday of his life. It will be a very special blessing to meet Nate and a joy to watch him grow up.

  11. nice opinion. thanks for sharing...

  12. What an elegant presentation. Love it!!!

  13. Miz Helen - i love the combination of the apples, cranberries and thyme! i would never have thought to pair thyme with this dish - clever lady! Actually, endive is our next Rock Paper Ingredient challenge... i may use this for inspiration :)

  14. I love chicken salads and I can't wait to try your recipe! I love that you added both apples and cranberries. I also appreciate that part of the dressing is made up of yoghurt which is a little healthier than using straight mayo. Thanks for sharing another delicious recipe with us.

  15. What a lovely idea - and what a delicious chicken salad. I always love celery in a chicken salad, and I like your addition of the cranberries too. Thank you for sharing this delicious dish!

  16. What a great chicken salad recipe! Love the addition of the cranberries! Sorry I missed the baby shower. Looks like it was a good one!

  17. Nice post. If you like chicken, you might like my take on Sichuan chicken. I hope it is gluten free.

  18. Lovely salad. It would be great if you linked it in to today's Food on Friday which is collecting salad recipes.


Your visit has been very special. I look forward to your comments, they are like opening little gifts. Thank you for stopping by and hurry back!
