We have so much to be thankful for!!!!

It is now November, the month we gather together with family and friends to enjoy the holiday of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is only weeks away, but shouldn't every day be a day of thanksgiving? We have so much to be thankful for... we can read our Bibles without being arrested, we have so much food that we can stuff ourselves until we're too full, we have nice houses compared to some of the world, we aren't battling cancer and wondering if we'll be able to live to see the next day, we have the opportunity to have an education, and we also have family and friends. In light of all of that, having a headache, or not getting a good night sleep, or not being able to go somewhere because of the weather seems to be just a "little" bit trivial. We take so many things for granted. We have so much compared to people that have so little. So, as Thanksgiving gets closer, let's try to keep in mind all of our blessings that we are so privileged to have. :)

      Thank you...

Matt, for wanting to fight for our country so that we can live free. :)

Kim and Arielle, for being sweet and caring sisters to me. :)

Everyone else, for accepting me into the Game Night group and for being my friends. :)

                             Thank you all so much!!! :)♥

Sidewalk Prophets - You Love Me Anyway


I now have glasses and can see things clearer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) You don't realize all of what you can't see until it's corrected!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) I need them for distance, not so much for close up work! So, it might take a little bit of time for all of you to get used to me in them! :)

Peanut Butter Cupcakes!!!

Just about every Friday I make dinner and a dessert. But this past Friday was the Game Night, so I made dinner and a dessert today (Sunday)!! I made Peanut Butter Cupcakes for the dessert! I haven't tried one yet (well I did try some of the batter and some frosting hehe) so I can't tell you how they were! But anyway, here are some pictures of some of the cupcakes that I made and here is the recipe for them!!! :)


                               Peanut Butter Cupcakes
3/4 c. all purpose flour
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. shortening
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
2 lg. eggs
1 c. milk
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

At least 2 hours before serving: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 24 (2 1/2 ") muffin pan cups. Measure all ingredients into large bowl. Mix at low speed until well blended. Increase speed to high heat 2 minutes. Spoon batter into cups. Bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely. Frost when cool, chocolate frosting goes good on these. Makes 2 dozen cupcakes.

Rosie!!! :)

We only have one goat right now, Rosie! Rosie and her brother Sonny were born not this winter but a couple of winters ago. Their mother, Mandy, was a Nubian and their father, who was someone else's black buck, was a Boer. Having her kids took a toll on Mandy, and when Sonny and Rosie were still babies, she died. But, Sonny and Rosie made it through without their mother! We sold all of our other goats except Rosie!!!!!!! Dad is thinking about breeding her!!! So, maybe by the fall we will have little baby goaties!                              

Rosie and me!
