This and That

I think I am most attracted to other peoples blog posts that are titled this and that or odds and ends because I know that it will be a mish mash of pictures and hopefully a good story. So here is our "this and that" for the week end.

It was a cake pop comeback this week end. I made some cake pops for my dear friend's little girl's 1st Birthday party this week end. I forgot how much I love to make these and how easy they are to make.

Kate was lost in thought over her oatmeal the other morning and I thought this was such a good picture of her soulful eyes. There's a lot going on in that beautiful head of hers.
We had a hard freeze this week. And then it was near 90 on Sunday. I have given up trying to understand Texas weather. This lone yellow rose from my back yard survived.
One of my greatest joys in life these days is that Kate and Carson are so close. I love seeing this bond that they have grow more and more everyday. It is truly a precious thing to witness and makes me feel so incredibly blessed.
I caught this sweet little scene on Saturday morning. I'm loving our family time at home these days. We are no where near perfect but the kids are reading more and they have discovered the joy of board games. We play at least one and often multiple games every single night. Carson often yells out like a gameshow host "Who wants to play Zingo!?!?!?!?"  Currently we play Battleship (an easy version). Monopoly (or as Kate calls it Fonofoly), War, Go Fish, Zingo, and classic Candy Land.


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
