It's great getting to know you :) Four sons, I'm so jealous. I just have one. Who needs girls LOL

Mindy Obenhaus said...

Hey, Vickie! Always fun to learn more about you wonderful ladies. French silk pie is killer. :)

Christine Johnson said...

Nice to meet you, Vickie! I agree about the French silk pie. Yum!

Jean C. Gordon said...

Nice to meet you, Vickie. I'm really enjoying these Friday Sisterhood blogs.

Sandra Orchard said...

What a cutie. Your grandson? I've never heard of French silk pie so I had to google it. It looks like what we'd call in Canada a chocolate cream pie. Yummy.

Keli Gwyn said...

I enjoyed getting to know more about you, Vickie. Dads play such a big part in our lives. Sounds like your dad made a huge impression on you. I'd be interested in hearing more about that if you care to share. Did he offer words of encouragement, teach you valuable lessons, etc?

Leann Harris said...

Good to get to know more about you.

Carolyn Greene said...

Four sons. Sounds like a super-active household. :-)

Missy Tippens said...

Vickie, it was great getting to know more about you!

Margaret Daley said...

Thanks for sharing yourself with us.

Vickie McDonough said...

Thanks, everybody for welcoming me today. I didn't know when I signed up for the interview that I'd be traveling today. My husband and I just drove 10 1/2 hours from Tulsa, OK to Nashville. I'm glad to be settled in our hotel room.

Pamela, I joke about God giving me four boys to raise so I'd know how to deal with my one grand-daughter. :)

Hi Mindy! Yep. French Silk Pie is to die for. Mmmm...

Christine, you must be a kindred spirit if you love FSP.

Hi Jean. I'm glad you're enjoying getting to know the Craftie Ladies!

Hi Sandra. That is my grand-daughter, Hailey. You're really missing out by not having any French Silk PIe. It's yummy!

Keli, You know, I can't remember my dad ever sitting me down and teaching me any lessons. He was a big marshmallow. Mom was the disciplinarian. With Dad, you just want to make him happy. I couldn't stand disappointing him.

Thank, Leann!

Carolyn, Yes, our house was active when the boys were young. What's ironic is that I married a marshmallow like my dad, and I ended up being the disciplinarian.

Thanks, Missy!
