Anyway, if some of you that are newer to my blog want to see a few of my other cakes, there are some here, here, here & here.
Also, if you have a few minutes and you want to listen to a song that will absolutely give you goose bumps, click on the play button at the top of my sidebar. Our choir at church has learned this song and it has made it to the top of my favorites list. Just shut your eyes and listen to the words.
What a day that will be, when EVERY KNEE will bow.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday evening. :)

I have to share this one too. I have never used this pan before and I was a little surprised when I opened the oven to find this....
Sooooo.... What do YOU think it looks like? :)

My lungs ,on the other hand ,were spent by the 1/4 mile mark! What's up with that! I was up to 4 miles this time last year.
I may not be able to move tomorrow...seriously. Things are going to hurt, I just know it, and it's not going to be pretty.

After all, you all are why I love my computer! So come on and let me see who you are!
On another note, my youngest was obviously plagued with MY creative juices. He brought this story home on Friday. I think it's his first one ever. I will keep this one for a long time. :)
And there you have it.

Also, in the caption, you will notice that the people that work at the paper in this town thought they were SO FUNNY by making a reference to "the Roger's neighborhood". HAHa...ha.

My sister-in-law called me today on my cell phone. I know that seems like a normal thing, but it is what this little post is based on.
Ok, let me set the stage for you.
We were in the living room. I was talking on my cell phone and Eric was sitting on the couch holding the baby that I watch. She was getting fussy, so I got up to make her a bottle. As I did, I started patting my pockets with my phone-free hand and then I went over and looked in the chair, even down the sides, and patted my pockets again.
You know where this is going yet?
I looked over at Eric and mouthed to him, "Where's my cell phone, I can't find it?"
Oh yes I did.
He looked at me with this look of, "seriously?"
I realized what I had said right after I said it. I was TALKING on my cell phone!
So anyway, I made the baby's bottle and came back in and sat down in the chair again. I motioned for Eric to bring me the baby so I could feed her.
Here is what he did:
Stood up, with the baby in his arms, turned a circle and said, "Hey, where's the baby? Where did she go?" ~~ then he laughed.
And that's what it's like being married to a smartallic.

Our trip to the camp was full of fellowship and fun. The nice thing about these weekends is that there is time to get to know someone that you may not get a chance to speak to very often. Another fun thing is that we got to eat a meal without having to order for our kids or cut up someones food! ALSO~~ we could order a shake with our meal and, in my case, not have to order three more for the kids!
We got to the camp in plenty of time to get our beds picked out and made. They had a cabin that was the perfect size for our whole group. The camp had done a lot of work since we were here before and the cabin was pretty cute.
The afternoon was spent in different workshops. They had fun workshops and also some informative workshops. At 3:15 we had a choice of either practicing for the ladies choir or going to the zipline.
Hmmm.... Which one do you think I chose? :)
OF COURSE!!! (that's me zippin'!)
We had some fun times in our cabin. As night fell, some of the ladies got a little mischievous.
It is so much fun to just be a kid again for even one night. I love having a side that can still enjoy pranks and silliness. I hope to never lose that. Now, I won't name names, but the one on the far right of this picture is our youth pastor's wife. I'll just call her "The toilet paperin', toothpaste squeezin' ringleader". She was the one asking the question that is the title of this post. I also found out that this girl can RUN... FAST!!
Here she is again, hanging over the back seat of the van. I think she was looking for a seat belt or something. Who knows, but a picture had to be taken!
Like I said at the beginning of this post, we heard so much from God's Word. I hesitate to elaborate on here because I don't think I can fully relay it all. I have to go deeper into it so that I can understand it all myself.

Well they are, and that is just a BIG FAT BONUS for me!
We are all going to have a great time getting to know one another a little better. The majority of that bonding will likely take place to and from the bathhouse at all hours of the night!
If you remember us over the next couple of days, please pray for safety on the road, for the husbands staying behind with the kiddos, and for openness of hearts to the teaching. I am personally looking forward to what God has in store for me! :)
Oh, and pray for an absence of anything with four legs and a mean growl....and sharp teeth. Oh, and slithery....and stingy!! YIKES!!

I know, I shouldn't be so proud that at the age of 33 I have never made a cobbler before.
But you know what? I AM!!
Our Pastor had a birthday today, his 39th to be exact, and we had him and his family over for supper tonight. We have the best time together! I knew from a dinner earlier in the year that he LOVES blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream. I figured that a cobbler would work out better for 11 people, so I went that route. It was actually pretty good. Thanks to my mom for helping me out with the recipe! ;) Love ya, mom!
So here it is, complete with a 39 in the middle in case he had forgotten already! ha! I told him he could still hang with us even though he's getting so close to 40. I told him we would just walk a little slower. :)
I just love giving him a hard time. And hey, don't feel sorry for him, he deserves it!
This would be one of many examples as to why I love to razz him. It is the score sheet from our game of 3-13. The guys beat us....again. We WILL get them...eventually! This is hanging on my fridge, just so I won't forget. You see what I'm dealing with here? Seriously!
Yep, they whooped us good.
Anyway, we love them so much and are so glad that we were able to share this evening with them.
