Who Am I?

  • My life as a wife, mother, and child of God. I can tell a good joke, but only at my own expense. I can tell ya how to parent, but only by first failing. And I can tell you how to get to Heaven, but you gotta get there on your own.

First and foremost thank you for your sweet comments, those snarky comments had me on the verge of being ugly.

Lastly OMG those cookies are AMAZING!!!


Sooo adorable! You really need to start selling those cookies! They are truly the best frosted cookies I've ever seen!


I saw these on Laura's blog and I was amazed. For your "first" time holy monkey, girl! Love them. Ty would be so jealous. I sometimes wonder if he'll ever outgrow Curious George. I kinda hope not.

Can't wait to see pictures from the shower. Have fun!

Dea Your talent never fails to leave me with my mouth to the floor. Those look so amazing. Are you really Martha Stewart or something like that? wow. Totally amazing, great work!


Oh my goodness... it is 11 PM at night here and you've totally made me want to go make some sugar cookies. They look so good.... yummy! I love the monkey design and all the writing... YOu've got some amazing talent there. I also love your photos.... you look at one and then want to keep on looking. Great job!

I want your talent for cookie art! I'm so impressed with your work, it never ceasaes to amaze me!

I totally understand busy :) It is truly overwhelming sometimes! Praying that your busy can stay under control for you!!


those turned out amazing! the monkeys are so cute!


It reply to your comment: it is a bummer! But i think we are well on our way to getting it fixed, or so i hope. I am going to MVNU and going for early childhood education. As much as i wanted to go for photography, i was worried about it not being a job that will earn me enough to support a family when i get to that point in my life so i went for the "safer" option. I figure I can always build up my photography on the side and maybe even one day it will take over! =]

Oh. My. Goodness. I am so wishing you lived close by. :-) My little Benjamin thinks he wants those cookies when he turns 1. Who am I kidding? I want those cookies when he turns 1. I'll have to get my cake decorating sister to switch to cookies for the day!

Wondering if you would share how you frosted these cookies? I bought a monkey cookie cutter with the intent to make these for my daughter's first birthday, but the task has overwhelmed me. Don't know where to start and afraid they will come out looking awful. You make it look easy!
