Just Call Me Suzie Homemaker

Most of you know that I do enjoy baking. So aside from doing VBS this week, I have been baking up a storm. Our church has people volunteer to sign up to bring cookies for our fellowship time after morning church. As soon as they started doing this, I told myself that sometime in the summer I would bring cookies. This coming Sunday is the one I volunteered for. They like to have about 16 dozen cookies which is a lot, but I decided I would make five different kids and make one every day this week. My husband has enjoyed the "mistakes" that he finds and I have been pretty pleased with the results. I have been having issues with my oven, and I finally determined it was a temperature thing. We bumped up the temperture in the oven about 10 degrees, and now things are turning out great.

Chocolate Chip - my personal favorite and the ones I have been having the most trouble getting to turn out right. The higher temp oven and more flour helped these turn out nice.

Oatmeal Raisin - For a little variety and there always is that one oddball person that doesn't like chocolate.
Monster - These are probably my husbands favorite, though he will eat just about anything you put in front of him.
Peanut Butter - again for variety sake. And I think they always just look so pretty too.
And finally - White Chip Chocolate - A fun twist and something different.

Now, I better let my oven rest a little bit.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
