I am crazy busy this week… not with anything exciting like an in home interview with People magazine or anything… mostly just with babysitting and Bible study and laundry and baking. 

Although I just might share that baking with you tomorrow.  Its something new for me. And it is YUMMY.

In the meantime, I just want to take a moment to say Thank You to a very special friend!

Kristin sent this adorable hand made shirt to us when Audrey was born. 


I don't know how she knew, but I sorta have a thing for long sleeve onesies.  And by 'thing' I mean full fledged addiction.

Audrey is now big enough to fit into it, and it just so cute!!  Thank you so much Kristin for your thoughtfulness and creativeness!

Share with your friends!

  1. Such a cutie pie.
    Just got caught up on your blog, wow, and now I think I’m hungry for pancakes…man that pumpkin with the jack-o-lantern in the middle was brilliant, cookies with addresses.
    The Pooh book was a find. Your husband’s waders freaked you out? That made me laugh.
    I love all these things you cook and you DO take great photos.

  2. Get your business cards ready, because I have someone very interested in using your “Minnesota” cookies!!!
    So today, I had a big luncheon for my little towns businesses, and the State Rep’s and Senator for my region were there. The Senator and I were talking about my daughter and her desire to have Julie come to her class because she thinks its cool that her mom knows a Senator… anyway, I digress… So, I then started telling Julie (Rosen) that I had a friend who made amazing cookies and is going to let me buy copious amounts of them (ok, 3 dozen)with our towns name on them for my daughters 6th grade class.
    You should have seen her eyes light up! She thinks that she should have them for her meetings!
    A few shameless plugs for my pals never hurts right?
    So, you know how to reach me! I need to get your business card (on a cookie would be cool wouldn’t it??) so I can send it to her!
    I havent heard from Mantha’s teacher as to when would be a good time to have the cookies in class but I will let you know! 🙂 lo
