Fall Memories

We're back!  There have been some technical difficulties and crazy schedules around here of late, but we are excited to do some more-regular posting here on the blog.  Check back in the coming days for lots of new posts, including a giveaway, daily life photos and stories, maybe some recipes and a guest post by the parents etc.  And while we're on the subject of possible post topics, what would you like to see on the blog in the coming weeks?  Leave us a comment with your ideas!  
We have been loving pears and apples of late!  They surely do make for some yummy cookin'; we're been enjoying stewed apples, apple cake, apple danish bars, apple pie, dried apples, pear puffed pancake, apple pancakes, etc.
The boys helped can pears one day.
Our fall donut-making party resulted in lots of yumminess and fun, as usual.  (Click here for our donut recipe.)
I'm tellin' ya, this boy can put away the donuts.  Wait, he actually eats a-whole-lot of any type of food!  How I love cooking for him and the other hungry men around here!
Oh yeah!
The holes are the best.
"Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!"
[Psalm 107:31]

  2. Hey Bontragers,
    Could Chelsy and Allison do a blog on a pure relationship with boys? Can Allison do a blog on how she does her hair? Can all of your kids do a blog on how each of them came to know Chist? Can Ms.Becky and Mr.Marlin post a blog on how they meant and there wedding?
    In Christ,

  3. I'd like to see a post from your parents on the financial tips or how you do it on one income and your mom being able to stay at home with all you kids, etc... How they raised you to be so close to your siblings, etc...
