Happy October To You – Twins, Sukkot & Coconut Oil!

Can you believe that we are already in October?  I’m not sure where this year has gone!  It has been quiet around here lately and I apologize for that.  But I do have an excuse!  Or at least, a good reason.  That sounds better, doesn’t it?

Happy October To You - Twins, Sukkot & Inexpensive Coconut Oil!


Several weeks ago, we received a call at 2:15am from Clinton and Sharon (who are like family to us) and they asked for my mother and Sarah to come to their place because Sharon was in labor. We were surprised since it was a couple weeks before her due date but they hurried out of the house and drove the 1.5 hours to where Clinton and Sharon are living.  We received a text several hours later that read, “Baby girl born before we got here … waiting on baby #2!”

That began a whirlwind of a week and a half!  To start with, they didn’t know that they were having twins!  But some hours later, baby #2 was born – another beautiful little girl! Unfortunately Sharon did have some complications after the birth, which resulted in 2 unexpected emergency trips to the hospital.  During this time, Sarah was staying with them to help care for the twins and their 15 month old son.  Others in our family, myself included, spent time back and forth between their place and ours, resulting in loss of sleep and crazy schedules.  But it was worth it all!  I mean … they have TWINS!!

To say we’re all excited would be an understatement!  But with all of that going on, not to mention me and the other girls having more puppy business work to handle since Sarah was away, we haven’t kept up with things around the blog as much as we would like to.  More on that in a little bit!

Isn’t this a beautiful family?!Happy October To You - Twins, Sukkot & Inexpensive Coconut Oil!

I mentioned that Clinton and Sharon had some unexpected hospital visits, which resulted in some unexpected expenses.  Another friend of ours has started an online fundraiser for them.  If any of you feel led to help them with the medical bills, it would be greatly appreciated.  You can do so by clicking on this link:

Let’s Bless Clinton & Sharon Cauthen’s Growing Family


As most of you know, our family observes the Biblical feasts and Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) is beginning next week!  So it’s going to be quiet on the blog for a little bit longer but we look forward to catching up in a few weeks!  I know I still have one more house photo post to publish and we have some other things in the works too.  I’m sure we’ll also be sharing pictures and videos from our Sukkot celebration.  This is always a highlight of the year and I pray that all of you who are celebrating it will have a very blessed one!

Coconut Oil!

Do you use coconut oil?  It has some amazing health benefits! Our family enjoys using it in many different recipes and we go through a fairly large quantity.  I have searched around to find the best price on organic, extra virgin, cold pressed coconut oil … and I think I have found it! {affiliate link} Carrington Farms Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil on Amazon only costs $16.14 for 54oz!

Disclaimer: this is the price before shipping.  But I like to combine items in my order to get the total over $49, which gives me free shipping.  If you already have Amazon Prime, you can get free shipping anyway!  Or if you don’t have it, you can get a free 30 day trial at – try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial :)

Question: do you order many items through amazon?  What are some of your favorite finds?

Hope you have a lovely week and we’ll be back around the end of October, YHWH willing!

P.S.  Do you know what else I usually order on Amazon?   Cafe Don Pablo Organic Coffee Medium-Dark Roast Whole Bean Coffee Beans!  It’s $15.99 for 2lbs and it’s VERY GOOD coffee
