I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

Patriotic Sugar

The wonderful thing about making sugar cookies, is that there are cookie cutters for ANY occasion!  Alex and I took advantage of Harrison's nap time today to make some cookies.

There's nothing like PINK - white - and blue stars (and shooting stars) to get us in the mood for Independence Day festivities.  We put TRIPLE the amount of red dye the box suggested, and they're still pink!  Is it even possible to make red icing????  

True to their nature, Alex requested to scrape off all the icing before he ate his ... and Harrison licked of all his icing, and left the cookie on the plate (he didn't want to get his fingers dirty).

There's lots left for Daddy when he gets home from work - or - rather - there's lots left right now - I guess it depends on how late he works tonight!  Harrison keeps running into the kitchen whenever I'm distracted to put his fingers in icing.  **wink**

Nice! Well, your cookies pass for red on my screen. :) I think I sold any cookie cutters I had 4 or 5 years ago in a yard sale. Tried my hand at a patriotic cake yesterday but the blueberries pushed some of the icing off as they slid down. lol
