This was a quote from my mom this morning (except she had added 'I hope' to the end of hers). I changed it to 'this we know' because HE blessed them so much today! (Not that they are stupid-mom's words, not mine! Ha!) Anyhoo, long story, but they really received a blessing today, and it's just amazing how God works, even though we are weak and don't always make good decisions! He still loves us and is just so good (all the time)!
Today has been a good day! We all got up early and had breakfast, then Kris and Katie headed out with a picnic lunch to go shed hunting. Asher and I went to Wal-Mart and got some things we needed, and we stopped by the Dollar Tree to get some birdies and moss. We came home and played with the puppies for a little while and then Ash went right to sleep for his nap. He was so tired from playing with his cousins last night! I just put some chocolate chip cookie brownies in the oven...they smell really good. You just mix up brownie mix like normal, spread in a 9x13 pan, then drop big dollops of CC cookie dough all around in the brownie batter. Smoosh them down a little and bake for 28-30 minutes. The good part is if you use a regular sized refridg. cookie dough, there is a little left at the end of the tube that you can secretly eat without the kids knowing! So easy, so yummy!
Today I bought some plastic eggs and robin's egg blue acrylic paint. I am going to attempt to paper mache some eggs and paint them light blue and maybe splatter paint them with some brown. They are more chicken sized eggs, but I think they would look cute tucked in a round clump of spanish moss. We'll see how they turn out!
