Some Pics Of My Littlest Guy

Starting to grab his feet. He is not really interested in rolling over just yet.

He is really starting to like various toys with their different sizes and colors.

Finally starting to enjoy being on his stomach. My poor little guy has had reflux which has limited his activity for the past 6 months.

He is looking pretty confident in himself.

He is coming up quick on 6 months. Exciting but sad how quickly it really flies by.

40 Days Of Prayer For Our Husbands

This is a group on facebook and since some of you don't have accounts on facebook and might not even want one, I decided to post it here.

Beginning Sunday, Feb. 1st we will pray daily for our husbands AND be challenged to do or say something encouraging each day~

This exercise is POWERFUL! I challenge each and every one of us to stick with it!

I will post a message DAILY with the prayer and encouragement challenge. Imagine what a blessing this will be to our husbands.

Feel free to add comments and express what you might have done in prayer for your husband or how you expressed encouragement. Lets encourage each other to encourage our husbands better.

There is ONE major rule...during the 40 days...You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!

So be watching tomorrow for the first message.

I Tried To Climb The Mountain Today....

This was read today at Weight Watchers, I have multiple areas in my life that I can apply this to, not just weight bout you...what areas of your life are your mountains that need to be climbed.


I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt overwhelmed, so I had to turn back.

I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall, and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.

I was ready to climb the mountain today. But it was so hot outside, I thought I better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.

I was about to climb the mountain today. But I had so many other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of much more important tasks. I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will just have to wait.

I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in it's majestic beauty, I knew I stood no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even bother trying.

I have forgotten about climbing the mountain today; until a friend came by and asked me what I was up to lately. I told him I was thinking about climbing that mountain some day. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish this task.

Finally, he said, "I just got back from climbing the mountain. For the longest time I told myself I was trying to climb the mountain but never made any progress. I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams will eventually die."

"The next morning, I started my climb." He continued, "It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed "stop!" I focused on my goal never letting it out of sight, and I kept moving forward. At times, I was ready to quit, but I knew I had come too far. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled to make it to the top, but I climbed the mountain!"

"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way, what are you going to do tomorrow?"

I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I have a mountain to climb."

- Gary Barnes

Some of my mountains are:

1. Getting to church on Sunday even with a sometimes difficult baby, bad weather or no dress clothes to wear.
2. Weight loss.
3. Organization.
4. Exercise.

I am sure the list could go on and on, but these are the ones that I sense on my plate right now.

Only What's Done For Christ Will Last

I read these words on another blog and decided to look into where they came from....I found this.....Wonderful....

Only One Life

Two little lines I heard one day, Traveling along life’s busy way;
Bringing conviction to my heart, And from my mind would not depart;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one, Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
Then, in ‘that day’ my Lord to meet, And stand before His Judgment seat;
Only one life,’ twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, the still small voice, Gently pleads for a better choice
Bidding me selfish aims to leave, And to God’s holy will to cleave;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, a few brief years, Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
Each with its clays I must fulfill, living for self or in His will;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

When this bright world would tempt me sore, When Satan would a victory score;
When self would seek to have its way, Then help me Lord with joy to say;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Give me Father, a purpose deep, In joy or sorrow Thy word to keep;
Faithful and true what e’er the strife, Pleasing Thee in my daily life;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Oh let my love with fervor burn, And from the world now let me turn;
Living for Thee, and Thee alone, Bringing Thee pleasure on Thy throne;
Only one life, “twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one, Now let me say, “Thy will be done”;
And when at last I’ll hear the call, I know I’ll say ‘twas worth it all”;
Only one life,’ twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Perfect Peace

Do you ever just have that overwhelming feeling of God's love for you. This morning as I was standing in the kitchen making a german pancake for my son...I felt complete and utter peace. Even if I look like a truck ran over me and I am overweight and my husband is gone for 2 more months and the house is a mess....I felt peace and I felt loved. Even if losing my job was a big adjustment...I am adjusting even thankful for the opportunity that God has now given me to serve my home. I am thankful for my warm cup of coffee, for new recipes, for my pink robe that really should be given to the cat for a new bed as that is how bad it looks, thankful for my two sons that spend every day with me, thankful for my laptop that is becoming my home base for everything important to run my job as domestic engineer, for the sun shining in every window even though is so bitter cold, for yo yo ma making this experience just the more peaceful.

I love when God allows me these moments to just completely "get it". I have to say, sadly, they are few and far between...but I guess I would not savor them as much if I had them more frequently....I would not notice his voice as loudly if they happened more often. I hope you too know what I am talking about.....I am so happy to be a child of God.....

Enjoy this Monday....

Inauguration Day

Today is definitely a day in history. My children are seeing the first black president take office today. The D-Academy will be studying previous inauguration days in history, what normally happens on inauguration day, making a flip book on what it would be like to live in the White House and watching the new president give his inauguration address. Hoping to also get into previous addresses from Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, etc. We have a map of the inaugural parade that we will be looking over as well. I am sure that my son will be excited to just take a break from normal school to have a different kind of day. I would like him to put himself in the new president's daughter's shoes and see what that might feel like. His daughter is only a year younger than my son. Should be an interesting day!

It Can Be Done

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it";
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

Delicious Low Fat Banana Bread With Chocolate Chips

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
1 tablespoon butter, melted
3 tablespoons applesauce
2/3 cup brown sugar substitute (splenda blend)
2 eggs (could even do better with 1/2 cup egg substitute)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used mini chips)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a loaf pan with Pam.
Mix the dry ingredients & Set aside.
In a separate larger bowl, mix the bananas, butter, applesauce, and brown sugar substitute.
Stir in eggs, mix.
Add the flour, mix thoroughly.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Pour into loaf pan, and bake 50 minutes.
Cool to 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Sliced into 12 slices, this is only 4 WEIGHT WATCHERS POINTS.

This was VERY GOOD bread. The kids thought this was the best recipe yet. I like to make banana bread when I have ripe bananas, which is most of the time cause we buy em and no one eats em.

Some Things I Have Realized....From Being Around My Kids....

-Legos are dangerous.

-A 409 bottle can be cheap entertainment for a 5 month old.

-Action figures are better without hands or heads.

-The best thing to buy a kid is really not toys, it is a roll of tape...cause I seem to find it all over from one of my children. I just wish it was not packing tape which seems to be harder to remove.

-Dixie cups can be used as a toilet if one is not available......GRRRRRR!!

Do you have anything that you have been enlightened to from your children....

Watch for future posts on this subject, as I am sure there will be many.

I had english muffin pizza which consisted of one 98% ff English Muffin with 1 tablespoon per side seasoned tomato sauce, 1/8 cup per side ff mozzarella cheese, 4 pieces per side turkey pepperoni. I also had enough grapes to equal 1 point (calculations thanks to my cool weight watchers scale).

Quick and Easy Goulash..made WW friendly

I got this recipe off of recipezaar, but basically changed it all up to fit my diet. Man, it was good.

Quick and Easy Goulash

1 lb lean ground beef (I used 96% ff)
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp Garlic powder
1/8 tsp Red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1 can tomato sauce (15 oz)

Once the macaroni is done rinse and drain. Add the macaroni to the hamburger, add the cheese packet and the can of tomato sauce and stir. Heat through. It made 6 one cup servings.

6 Weight Watcher points.

My daughter said it was like Hamburger Helper...obviously a healthier version and 1 cup was filling. Could have it with a side salad.

My Favorite Things

Around my birthday in November, I finally indulged on a new slow cooker. I have been extremely unhappy with the one I have as it would burn food and just seemed to not heat evenly. It was a well known brand too...which made me wonder why I was having such problems. Every time I would cook with it, I would crab and moan that I needed a new one....WELL I FOUND THE PERFECT ONE!!!!! For about the same price or cheaper (depending if you find it on sale), you have three slow cooker sizes in one, stores easily away and is extremely great at its cooking. The thing I think that makes the difference is the small hole in the top of the glass lid to let some steam out...sometimes I think it just gets too hot...water would spit out from around the lid on my last slow cooker.

I just love this thing. I have used two of the three sizes, but am looking forward to making some sort of dip with the smallest some day. I would highly recommend this item. I found mine at Kohls on sale for in the 30-40 dollar range...normally some places charge up to 60. Yummmmmm, I can smell my pork and sauerkraut cooking in it now.
