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.

Oh Gracious!! She is precious!

Amanda Rettke

  Thankyou!!  I totally agree... :)




oh my goodness...she is adorable...really such a cute model for the onesie, too...


Good thing she's got 2 older brothers!!!


Holy moly, she's getting huge! When did that happen.

And I agree. Long sleve onsies are the best. Hope is outgrowing them and I'm more than a little sad. Enjoy a little extra for me too, will you?


And I was going to say, what an absolute cutie too. I love little girls. And boys, but I'm on a girl kick after seeing this. :)

What a precious little cherub she is! And that onsie is adorible!

Be Blessed,



I LOVE long-sleeved onesies! I just bought a bunch on sale at Carter's. They are the winter staple in my house for my little ones.

Audrey is one little cutie! And that shirt is adorable on her!


she is adorable and that onsie is pretty cute!

Amanda Rettke

She is getting SO big! And cute of course! :)
I LOVE onesies too, I tell Matt all the time I wish they made them at least to 5T! :)
Hope you are all doing well.

I love her fuzzy hair :) I miss that so much! She is super sweet and what a cute onesie! How fun! I hope she gets to wear it LOTS! They grow up too fast!

{And SUPER yummy pancakes previous post! How did I miss that! I'm like Pavlov's dog with your blog! The drool starts immediately! LOL!}

I have two girls and when they were babies I loved them in long-sleeved onesies! So cozy and sweet on their chubby bodies. They were hard to find back then though!! Your little girl is beautiful! My oldest daughter actually asked if we could go to your site this morning to see if you made something else ;) Food, with lots of color, she was hoping for!!!!!

Amanda Rettke

That is so sweet Mary!!  I am planning on posting something fun later this week... I have a feeling your daughter will enjoy it!!  (I hope anyway!)

Many blessings to you and yours Mary!



What a surprise! I didn't expect to see my name when I came here today! :-)

So glad she can wear it now. It was such a fun, easy project. Somehow your picture makes it look better than it looked when I made it, though...such crisp colors. :-)


you have the cutest little girl ever! (okay, no wait on that one--i've got some pretty cute girls, too!) and when i read your comment on my post about maya bein in the er. i liked how you went on and on about not eating sugar. so i said to myself, "this is the girl who bakes multicolored treats, right?"

Amanda Rettke

lol  You are a smart lady!!  ha!  Rarely do my kids eat the cakes and cookies I make.  And the pancakes were a from scratch with flax seed added... so MOST of the time, they dont eat sugar.  When they are sick, they get NONE AT ALL. 

Its just my humble little opinion, and its just what works for my family. 

Hope you are well dear Warrior for Christ!!




Audrey just gets cuter and cuter. She is looking toddler-like already. And I bet she has a sweet disposition, unlike certain blog commenters ;-) Now, you know I had to work that comment in there :D


Oh my goodness. She is sweet as pie!


Super great pictures you took there! Very cute =]


Don't think I've told you this before, but my sister's youngest is lso named Audrey...I Lobe that Name. What a beautiful shirt forr a Beautiful girl!


That's a cute little shirt! I like how her hair looks in these pictures!

have a good night!

Kristin Smithmith

Adorable pictures of your precious daughter! God has blessed me with 3 sons but oh what I wouldn't give for a little girl to dress up! :)


She's so photogenic! Such a sweet smile.

Sunshine Mama

Such a cutie pie.

Just got caught up on your blog, wow, and now I think I'm hungry for that pumpkin with the jack-o-lantern in the middle was brilliant, cookies with addresses.

The Pooh book was a find. Your husband's waders freaked you out? That made me laugh.

I love all these things you cook and you DO take great photos.

Mama M.

I love adorable baby pudge and baby fuzz!! She's a gem! Can't wait to see whatcha have cookin'!!

Jamie @ Six Bricks High

So stinkin' cute...both the onesie and the girl:)

Pineapple Princess

I hate to break this to you, but...


I love the little flowers on her shirt! And those photos are just precious, Amanda!

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is

Amanda I cannot get over how beautiful she is!!!!!!!!!!

Lori Nusbaum

Get your business cards ready, because I have someone very interested in using your "Minnesota" cookies!!!

So today, I had a big luncheon for my little towns businesses, and the State Rep's and Senator for my region were there. The Senator and I were talking about my daughter and her desire to have Julie come to her class because she thinks its cool that her mom knows a Senator... anyway, I digress... So, I then started telling Julie (Rosen) that I had a friend who made amazing cookies and is going to let me buy copious amounts of them (ok, 3 dozen)with our towns name on them for my daughters 6th grade class.

You should have seen her eyes light up! She thinks that she should have them for her meetings!

A few shameless plugs for my pals never hurts right?

So, you know how to reach me! I need to get your business card (on a cookie would be cool wouldn't it??) so I can send it to her!

I havent heard from Mantha's teacher as to when would be a good time to have the cookies in class but I will let you know! :) lo

Michelle M.

Hey, Amanda. I need your address for the giveaway :) Have a great day!

Gardner Momma

She is gorgeous. She looks just like you! What a very sweet little shirt.
