Just for the heck of it let's pretend that I know what I am doing as a mother and that all the postings here didn't really happen.

A school quarter's worth of catch up.....November
Skittles is a snuggly puppy. Her couch buddy is Isaac.
This is Isaac and Skittles after Thankgiving dinner. We had the Davis' over. It was so much fun with all the kids. I should have taken more pictures of the event. I am trying to get back into the habit.
Skittles is also a heater hog. I am a horrible puppy mom because if I need to get something done and do not want a puppy under foot I just turn on the heater because I know she will park herself with the favorite toy of the moment in front of the heater.
Daniel asked for a cookbook for Christmas this year. I spent all my free time in November putting it together. I also included and standard to metric measuring chart (I was not about ready to convert all my recipes to metric) and a Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion chart. I mailed standard measuring cups and spoons also. This package weighed a bit over a lb. It cost me a whopping $42.00 to send.
We have a sister missionary serving in our church from mainland China. We has a special dinner for her a few months ago featuring her favorite foods from home. She got a craving for chicken feet again and asked if we could make them again for her and her new companion. I had to take a picture because it just seemed surreal to have a bowl of chicken toes on my kitchen counter. The meal was a success. The kids all love chicken feet and I had a classmate from the Philippines over as well because chicken feet are a delicacy over there too.
Jacob is 12 years old now. This means that he is now a deacon in our church. He helps in passing the sacrament every Sunday. The Brown's bought him a new suit so now he looks goooood passing the sacrament.
Seeing how a lot has happened since I started this blog 3 years ago, I figured I should update my "about me" In 2010 my huband of 15.5 years passed away very suddenly from illness. Just recently I have found myself married again to a wonderful man who loves me and my children for who we are. This is not to say I am not without my heartache, it just means I am no longer alone in it. It is such a blessing to have someone to hold me when I hurt and to rejoice with when I am happy and most of all to be a wonderful example and friend/ father to my children.
