Raindrops on dill
A single leaf following the rain drops
Those raindrops made me thing. I have been so focused on my classes lately - intent on keeping my GPA as high as possible. I realized, watching those brief moments of rain drops, that I need to direct my focus elsewhere - so I pulled the kids into the bed and snuggled for a few minutes. Of course they were anxious to get back to what they were doing, but we snuggled, tickled, and giggled for a few minutes.
The older I get, the faster time goes by. It is so important to grab each and every moment possible and soak it in.
Chex mix with bat and pumpkin shaped pretzels - the boys favorite new snack
Sugar cookies with royal icing - lasted long enough to cool on the cooling racks
Mystery cake - this has got to be one of the easiest cakes I've ever made. Thanks to the fine ladies over at Mennonite girls can cook for this great recipe
Roasted pumpkin seeds - so easy and for some reason the boys say they taste like bacon... Hmmmm I don't get that, but they are delicious!
