Today it is gloomy outside but happy as all get out inside! Tallen is happily playing with his trucks and cars and making those cute sounds that go with… I have 3 baskets of laundry to fold and at least 6 months of socks to sort…actually it IS time for Nana to come. She LOVES to sort socks – yes, I get some of my weirdness form her! But instead of being the “laundry folding Domestic Goddess” I ought to be, I am making tuxedo brownies for Cindy Hougaboom’s baby shower tomorrow. And blogging about it of course… These brownies are SOOOOO good. I first had them at my wedding in 2005. My awesome visiting teachers made them as there was no cake.
The square pan is nifty looking and has a fancy name, but let me tell you, those babies WON’T come out hot!! (please notice the broken bits clinging to the pan...)
So Tallen & I sacrificed ourselves and put the broken ones out of their misery…he’s such a helper when there are baked goods about. Here he is helping clean the bowl:
The squares will have to cool completely before removal but those little silicone cups were great! I popped the brownies out and was able to refill in a jiffy – thus saving on energy by a quick turn around. Here’s the 2nd batch baking:

The girls went to the doctor today. We have new insurance fort hem and I knew with winter coming on, we’d better get that “new patient check everything out” visit out of the way, so that I’ll be able to take them in at the first hack or sneeze.
Mary had her garden of flowers, Here’s how my grows…
Lovely Sariah is growing into a beautiful slender young woman. She is 60 in. tall and 76.5 lbs. Miracle of Miracles!! She is “normal” for her age. No longer in the 25th percentile??? Surely she is still a peanut? She got the flu mist and TWO shots. She sat on my lap and protested loudly, until the actual shot! The needle went in and she calmly siad “That didn’t even hurt! Why is it so little?” She is funny!!
Miranda is catching up to sissy fast! She is a tall and shapely 56.5 in. and 68.5 lbs. Miranda is growing into the curvy young woman she will be. She had the flu mist in her nose as well and THREE shots…complaining loudly the entire time. The intern did one side and the Dr. the other at the same time. Randa’s funny comment was “NO – not ANOTHER one!! I don’t want it.” As the intern got out the band-aid for the 3rd shot. Miranda was so busy watching the intern, she didn’t feel the 2 in the other arm…silly girl!! Both had the Hepatitis A shot and the 2nd Gardisil; and Randa had the Chicken Pox booster. If I had to go back and do it again, I would have had her have the pox instead. Permanent coverage…no booster.
It is so AMAZING to step back and see them as Father does. I love to watch these spirits I have been given to help grow into Heavenly Father intends them to be. They amaze me!! We all made a cartoon of ourselves the other day. I look fresh and beautiful – no grey hair, no wrinkles, no blemishes. PERFECT!! The girls, amazingly, look like themselves – only older. They were thrilled to see that they could wear tank tops on the computer, even though they don’t in real life. Too Funny!!!!
