Saturday night, Gracie and I were both baptized at church. I believe that satan has now declared war on me. Our Pastor told us a few weeks ago that some people feel like life is beautiful right after baptism, and for others, it's when satan opens the floodgates on you. Apparently I fall into the latter group. Some serious things are going on in my home life, and if you're someone who prays, I'd very much appreciate some prayer for me and my situations.

Love to you all.

This weekend is invitation weekend at my church (Northside in New Albany). I think I'm going to go down and be baptized. Anyone who wants to come is more than welcome and I would love to have you. Just let me know if you wanna come and I'll let you know what service I'm going to.

Long Day

So today Josie and I walked the path at Perrin park (okay, I walked, she was in the stroller). I walked 1.25 miles, and then we picked the girls up from school and went back, and walked it AGAIN. So in total, I walked 2.5 miles today. My legs feel like they're about to fall off! But I got some excellent candid shots of my girls. See?

So I saw this recipe online tonight, and decided to give the girls a treat, since I hadn't baked in a week or so... Here's my chocolate chip cookie cupcakes!

And of course, my taste-tester, who never fails to let me know if a confection meets her high standards...

I think this is worth a second batch. ;)

Well, those of you in this area know about our wind, and all the damage it caused. Luckily the power never went out in our apartment (finally, a positive thing about living here). My sister and her newborn were not so lucky, though - their power is still out. Thank goodness my Dad went and got them (he has power), and they're staying with him for now.

School has been canceled all week for my girls, which is nice because now I get to spend some time with them... but of course, it's not all peaches & cream, because I am sick. Eugh. My throat hurts and I am dizzy and having hot flashes - it's not pretty. :( Fi is really enjoying having them home, though! And if I feel better later tonight (doubtful, but still), then I am going to try and make some sunflower cookies (peanut butter cookies, but with sunflower butter instead, since one of my little ones is allergic to peanuts!).

Oh, and yesterday was my weekly weight watchers weigh-in. I lost 5 pounds this week!

Love to all! (P.S. - I don't usually post pictures here, and for good reason... but I will share one for right now.)

Congratulations, Jen & Bryan!

My sister had her first baby (boy) on Saturday, September 6th! I won't give out any details since this is a public blog, but he is beautiful! Mama and baby are having some complications and he is in the NICU, but hopefully things will work themselves out and everything will be okay.

We're praying for all 3 of you! I love you so much!!
