I love Sundays

I just love Sundays. They are family day. Not just my family, but the time I get to spend with my family in Christ.

This morning, it was just Mattie B and I that headed to church. Mattie May had the beginnings of an ear infection so we decided she should probably stay home (we didn't want to expose all the other kiddos). It was cold, around 29 degrees and I had a head ache, but I still went to church. Mat and I have some great conversations and I don't get to spend near enough time with her, just the two of us anyway.

After a wonderful service and taking Mat back home, I came home and made a late breakfast for my family. Mambled eggs, sausage and bisquits. Still with a headache, I went and took a nap. After sleeping longer than I should have, Mattie May and I made oatmeal cookies. I have attached the scrapbook I made to the bottom of this post. I try real hard to be a clean cook, tiding up as I go. But working with a toddler... well it isn't always so clean. This is what happens when you don't watch her every move...

Yeap, that is oatmeal all over the cabinet and floor. After we had put the oatmeal in the batter I walked over to get a spoon to mix it with, she leaned over using the bowl for balance, and, well, over it went. Oatmeal everywhere. It was easy to get cleaned up. We have just bought a new handbroom and dustpan, so I just swept it up and dumped it back in and we were back on track!

Oh, come on! I am just joking! I cleaned up the mess, measured out more oatmeal and we finished our task. I must say, they were a very tasty dessert after a wonderful meal of pork chops and sausage that Frank cooked out on the grill. Mattie May was asleep by 7:30 because she is still not feeling her best.

It has been a wonderful day. I am so blessed. Enjoy the scrapbook and have a great week.

Cooking with kids - always an adventure.

Just this morning I was praying for a little more patience and endurance when it comes to housework (which I loathe), and not 10 minutes later, my 2 year old spilled a bowl of cereal, milk and all, all over the floor.


Hope Mattie May is feeling better today!

Cooking w/ the kiddies is such fun! My stepson made us the best french toast last week. I won't tell you what the kitchen looked like afterwards - lol! I hope Mattie feels better soon!
