I loved the snuggle time!
This blog has become a bit of a thorn in my side :) It seems that once you create a blog, there is this constant nagging in your brain to post. I look at my blog every morning when I check my favourite blogs. Not sure why, since I never change mine! Maybe I should make up a nice schedule and write down post ideas. I often get these grand ideas and write blog posts in my head. Unfortunately, they never make it to the screen.
So what's new in my life? Well, I made my first ever trip in a liquor store. I dragged my sister-in-law in with me just for some support! I was looking for Vodka to make my own vanilla extract. Once I found what I needed, the man at the cash register was like, "Could I flatter you for your ID?" And I laughed and said he really didn't have to, I'm an old lady already. When I gave him my driver's license, he asked me if I was making them in my basement... I got a kick out of it anyway. I know there is no way I look that young anymore!
I did take some awful nighttime pictures of my vanilla making process, but we'll see if they ever get published here :) I should have waited to make it in the morning, when the lighting was better, but I was impatient! So come August, I will have 2 pint jars of yummy homemade vanilla. I can hardly wait!
I've been doing preschool with Bria at home for most of the Fall/Winter, and she's really improving. She struggles a bit with hand strength and coordination, so writing numbers and letters is difficult for her. I'm really impressed with how well she is doing now, as compared to last Spring! I'm going to miss our time when she goes to Kindergarten this Fall. I'm thankful that it's still 6 months away.

Emery is such a fun little girl. She's so very determined. Right now she's getting over a really bad head cold. Hopefully it passes soon, so she can get back to her happy little self.
Keith got a new position at work. One of his co-workers quit a couple of weeks ago, and Keith was asked to take the job. So now he's working two jobs in the same office. A little stressful, if you ask me! I'm hoping that soon someone will be hired to take his old position.

Oh, and I'm also planning a Ladies' Retreat for our church! With the help of some great ladies, of course :) I can hardly wait!
On top of all the normalcies of life, I'm also trying my hardest to learn about healthy eating, and what God calls food. It's an interesting journey :) I'm learning much from the Bread Becker's Website. They have free video classes online. The series entitled "Healthy Eating Simplified" is very interesting. Sue Becker majored in Food Biology, and continues to study the effects of food on our bodies. She is also a Christian, so much of what she says is supported by Scripture as well. LOVE that!
Now I'm off to make some guacamole, and restore some order to my kitchen!
