Our Week Randomness & A Recipe

 (Doesn't she look so big!?)

We have had a good week. I'm pretty sure the Lord is trying to teach me patience. I tried potty training Annabelle this week because she gives me all of the signs that she is ready. She was doing great but somewhere along the way she changed her mind and this is her third day to refuse to even look at the potty.

Oh well, right?! What can you do? With all the potty drama, I totally forgot to do Thankful Tuesday! So, this week I am thankful for so many things. Although I'm not in the most thankful mood. Just one of those days I suppose or maybe it all goes back to it is all how you look at things. This morning I thought to myself in the service, even though I have to get up by myself on Sundays and get the kids ready alone etc etc at least my husband is a christian and I am not coming alone while he doesn't want to be a church. That puts things in perspective for me for sure!
 (Ad got her toes painted for the second time ever this week by Mrs. Beth. She LOVED it!)

Something I have been learning a lot about is that self pity is a form of idolatry. There are lots of reasons I want to wallow in my self pity mostly having to do with living so far from family but that is just has sinful as pride because it is still all about me and not at all about God.
 (I painted Ab's fingers and toes teal at her request. I love having girls.)
I seriously need to write about my Daniel study. It has been soooo eye opening and humbling. I am thankful for it!
 (We swim almost every day. Ab looks like such a diva in my sunglasses!)

(Yesterday we were swimming and I saw Ab memorized by the sprinkler in the neighbors yard. I asked her if she was ok and she said, "Look moma, it's a hummingbird!;" That girl is hilarious!)

In other big news, me have a new niece named Lilah Jane Fisher and our friends Sammy and Kimberley now have baby Zeke!!! God is good. Pictures of babies to come I promise!

On a completely different note, I made this dessert for a  family at our church last night. It looked so goo I wanted to eat it but I couldn't so I'll have to make it again soon!! I have no idea what it is called; my sister in law Dottie introduced me to it and I don't think she even has a name for it!
 Ingredients= chips ahoy cookies (1 or 2 packages depending on how big of a pan you are making)
                      a large tub of whipped cream
                      a cup of milk
                     your favorite candy (optional)
 line pan with whipped cream and dip cookies in milk and top whipped cream with them and then repeat those two steps again.

and make sure whipped cream is your last layer and top with crumbled cookies (not dipped in milk) and crushed candy. Sooo easy and next time I'm going to have Ab hep me because I think she would LOVE it and there is no way to really messs this recipe up!!

Oh and I'm sure you are wondering how in the world I made this without Annabelle around!? Well, Adam took both girls out for ice cream with his first official outing with both girls! I had the house to myself for about an hour and a half! It was awesome!

Have a wonderful REST DAY!
