Food blog

I stumbled on to a new food blog yesterday while searching for a dish that Jason could take to a work-breakfast-potluck he had Thursday . I decided to make the eggnog french toast~smells Christmas-y! The blog has some fun recipes, my next try will be the compost toffee for dessert Friday night, when we have company. Cute entry & looks delish~here is the link...

Love her motto (last line of the entry).
Disclaimer: I haven't read the whole blog, just enjoyed the 2 entries I read.:)

ps it was a hit!

The best gifts we didn't purchase

As I wrap & label Christmas gifts this week something struck me.When I wrote the names of my children, and then wrote, "mommy & daddy", on each gift tag, the significance of those words hit me. I know that the Lord has only entrusted Jason & me with these 4 lovelies, even if I forget for a moment or two on occasion. But, as I wrote those names that our 4 off-spring call us, "mommy, mom, daddy, dad" (depending on the kid:) I was reminded how darn important those titles are! We are the main example of Christ that they see. Each word we say, or do not say. Each action we take or do not take. Every discipline that is giving, each ear that is lent, no matter how long or tangent-y the story:). It is all important in shaping them, their character and who they will become in Christ.
Seriously not qualified, but majorly honored He entrusted us~and we will continue to lean on Him for raising these 4 jewels o' ours (or should I say "His":).


Grand Soccer Finale more soccer season down, a bunch to go! The 3 kids had their final games of the season Saturday, followed by 3 parties~yes, lots of pizza & sugar consumed. Meran & Jameson will go on to play in All-star games in a few weeks.

Great job team: Fire, Gladiators & Ninjas!!!
And thanks to the best coach ever!!!;)
