Wait until Christmas...

I have a cute story about my KK. Sunday night after taking Chris to the airport we ran into Toys R Us for fun! As we walked up and down the aisles Kaitlyn saw more and more toys she wanted. I kept telling her things like "tell Grandma" and "You'll have to wait until Christmas"

I ended up buying her a package of diapers for her baby dolls. As soon as we got home Kaitlyn announces to her babies "all right everybody time to change your diaper" (so darn cute!!) I proceeded to help her put diapers on 6 babies, but 2 did not get one as the diapers came 6 to a pack. When she realized we didn't have enough she says to her 2 babies " I sorry babies, you have to wait until Christmas!!"

Bless my heart! I was rolling on the ground at how much compassion was in her voice for her 2 bare-hiney babies :)
You melt me heart sweet girl!!!

I'm in the mood...

The cooler weather and football has me in the mood for Fall! I came across this recipe for Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake. I can not wait to try this!!! Chris is off to Houston for the week, so I think I'll put my apron to work :) I'll let you know how this one comes out. Do you have any good pumpkin breads/cakes/etc recipes to share?

  • 1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake as the center should be a little gooey.
Serve with fresh whipped cream.

What's on your coffee table?

It's 3:46 am and I just visited 162 blogs from Kelly's Korner

HA!!! I should really be working on this furniture arrived! Yippee!!!!
But, I am stuck in the living room. There are parts I love. 
Love this new lamp from HL Interiors as my friend Jennifer calls it (Hobby Lobby)
And the cross on my fireplace
And the nook that holds all our TV equipment
And then, there's the coffee table...
Snagged these beauties at HL Interiors today. I love the size and finish of our table. It's huge and pretty distresssed; perfect to eat around, color on, play games, etc. 
So...give me inspiration. What's on your coffee table? :)

And Then God Smiles....

Yesterday was a rough day :(
I made it through my 3 hour blood test after the 3 day donut diet, but not without battle scars.
Yuck!! My poor arms are bruised and sore from the needles. Makes me cringe just to look at them.

But then.....God Smiles Down on Sommer's the little things in life that bring such joy :) Happy Wednesday!

Donut Diet!

Bummer!! I failed my Glucose Blood work (again!) that checks for Gestational Diabetes. 
So guess what's on the menu for me for the next 3 days!!
That's Right DONUTS!
And there is 3 of them here because that's how many I will be eating for the next 3 days (yes 3 a day!!) followed by a 3 hour blood test on Tuesday. My tummy hurts just thinking about it! 
I had to do this diet and test last pregnancy, only about 2 1/2 hours into the test I got sick and had to start the WHOLE thing over again....donuts and all!!! Your prayers that I pass this test the 1st time would be Much Much Much appreciated!!! (just felt like with all the 3's (3 donuts...3 days...3 hours) it needed to be said 3 times ha!)
