Cookin' with Carson

Since my last post was so dismal, I thought I would post a happy little blurb. You probably all know that I have had the privilege of watching my 4 year old niece (Josie) and my 18 mo nephew (Carson) while their parents are on Vacation. Tonight while the "big" kids were happily engrossed in a movie. Carson and I decided to whip up a batch of brownies. Carson's official jobs were taste testing the chocolate chips and cleaning off the spatula (with his tongue!). He also thought that wearing the batter was as good as eating it. You can see by the following photos he was a very happy little sou chef, and I have to admit this was the most fun I have had in the kitchen in a while! Our brownies turned out well, although Carson and the kitchen were a little worse for the wear. If you want to recreate our master piece cut and paste the following link:

Happy Baking:)

Blah, Blah, Blog

I hope nobody gets to excited that I am blogging again, unfortunately I don't have much to say. However I do LOVE reading everyone's blogs, and feel I shouldn't benefit without contributing.

I wish I had something witty to write about, but I don't.
I wish I could think of a list to share with you but I can't.
I wish I had tried a great new recipe to pass along, but I haven't.

All I can think about is that I am done. I don't know how I got through the last 11 months, yet this last month of deployment is DRAGGING. I just want to feel whole again, I am tired of managing alone. I really do think I have learn alot about myself and my kids this last year. Even Steve and I's relationship has grown, however I am all done learning and growing. I just want to be a family.

I know this is quite a depressing way to come back in to blog land. However just getting this off my chest has helped. I know all things work together for His good, I just wish things would work a little faster:)
