FALL friend

My sweet friend, Allison B. came by to visit this morning and brought me the cutest gift. This papercrafted 'FALL' accordian table decoration says 'Fall' on the front. On the back each of the panels (each panel is 5" x 7" and is held together with hemp) has a pocket. In each pocket she added a little surprise; typed up talks from some of our church leaders and one of her favorite fall recipes.

Thanks, Allison! You made my day! After just having H1N1 finish a rampage on your family and being pregnant with baby #5, I don't know where you found the time.

I thought you might all enjoy the wonderful recipe Allison shared with me. I think I'll make it tomorrow!
