Thanksgiving Turkey Treats

Posted by The Neely Team



These fun and adorable treats are perfect for building relationships with the small people in your life. Watch smiles form and grow as you build your turkeys with your children, siblings, nieces & nephews, or little friends. And besides, who doesn’t like to have miniature turkeys around for the week of Thanksgiving? Smile


You will need:

Oreo cookies – 1 per turkey


Large marshmallows – 1/2 per turkey


Candy Corn – five per turkey, plus a few extra


Small amount of frosting

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon milk

Mix all ingredients to make frosting.


Assemble your birds:

Spread a little frosting onto a cookie.


Press half of a marshmallow (cut around the middle “east/west” fashion) onto the cookie, NOT centered.



Place 5 candy corn evenly spaced above the marshmallow. These are the feathers that make your gobbler’s fan. Winking smile


Break a tiny piece from one of the extra candy corn, and stick it to the marshmallow with a teeny bit of frosting. This is the gobbler’s beard. Winking smile


Your bird is complete!




A few weeks ago, the ladies were gone to a wedding in Indiana, so we fellows were at home with Daddy. We came home from church on Sunday and were wondering what we would have for lunch. We decided we would make grilled jalapeno, real bacon bits, egg, and cheese sandwiches. I decided to put the recipe up so others can enjoy this wonderfully splendid delicacy.

To make one sandwich:

1 chopped jalapeno

About the same amount of bacon bits as jalapeno

1-2 eggs

Cheddar cheese

2 slices of bread, buttered on one side

Butter the bread and fry eggs. When the eggs are done, remove them from the skillet and place on unbuttered side of one slice of bread. Dump the jalapeno and bacon together in the skillet. When jalapeno is cooked, put egg, cheese, bacon, and jalapeno on a piece of bread in the pan. (butter on the outside of the sandwich). Let it grill until lightly golden, then turn over and grill the other side of sandwich. Next place on plate and take a picture. (It is best to eat it with a fork.)

Happy 30th Anniversary!

With hearts full of gratitude to the Lord and our wonderful parents for His faithfulness to them and their faithfulness to each other, we Neely siblings decided 30 years of marriage was an occasion to celebrate! Plans began to form as the Lord directed our steps, and the surprise party was a delightful success!

We started the surprise by having our extended family at our house for dinner after church. That itself was shocking when Dad & Mom walked into our dining room and found family from far and near!

But then we added another layer to the surprise, and invited several close friends for a dessert reception following. What a blessing it is to celebrate the faithfulness and mercy of God with so many loved ones!

Shower of Blessings in North Carolina

Posted by The Neely Team



With Kathryn’s soon approaching wedding, a dear friend hosted a bridal shower to start the bride off with some new kitchen essentials. Such a blessing! It was an evening of sweet fellowship and laughter as we celebrated this new season of Kathryn’s life.


The menu was a bountiful salad buffet and ice cream bar!

It is with great joy that I invite you to visit Daniel & Kathryn’s new website! It’s been a blessing to watch my little sister wait for the Lord’s perfect timing, seek His very best, communicate with this incredible young man, and then say “YES!” when the big question was asked.


Can’t wait to see how the Lord will use this dynamic team to advance His kingdom. I’m a blessed big sister!

Psalm 31:19 – “Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!”

“Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.” Psalm 115:1


“O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.” Psalm 34:3



“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works… The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.” Psalm 145
