Seeing Spots


Crazy hair (me), cute smile (Gracie). I couldn't pass up the opportunity to document her cuteness and our matchy-ness. So, here you go :)

The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie




Thanks to eight bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, chocolate-loving, impish-smiling, rambunctious boys in our class at church every Sunday, I found myself scouring the Internet frantically one Saturday night, trying to find the perfect chocolate chip cookies. In our home, Aaron is the baker, and is actually quite good at cookies. This time, however, I was determined to try it out. I was convinced I would have to try several times before I got it right. In fact, I was so convinced that I doubled the recipe. To my utter disbelief, these perfect chocolate chip cookies turned out....err...perfect! You gotta try them!

Valentine's Day Family Photo


Last year, we took our first annual Valentine's Day family picture with Gracie in it. This year, she was too cranky and couldn't care less about taking a picture. We almost abandoned the whole idea but realized that the two of us were still dressed in our Sunday clothes, so why not just take the picture anyway? When Gracie gets older, I'm sure she will wonder why she wasn't in the picture ;)

I love this man and I am grateful I get to spend eternity with him.
