What I've Been Up To.....

I apologize for my (almost) month long absence, life gets in the way ya know and before you know it, a month flies by! We are doing well, Alayna is doing much better now that we know what she needs. She seriously eats like every 20 minutes, but not much, usually an apple, pear, banana, or almonds or cheese. Her behavior has been a HUGE improvement!

So, this is what we've been up to......

Pontooning on the lake. Yes, in October! The weather has been incredibly warm, and it's been awesome seeing the fall colors around the lake.

Chasing coots on the lake. We literally spent 20 minutes going through flocks of them, there were so many on the lake! Don't worry, no animals were harmed in said chasing.

Cooking. Ahhh, my relaxation. Rachel and I made homemade noodles to go along with Fettuccine Alfredo from my all time fave blog Finding Joy In My Kitchen. They turned out delicious!


And seeing this....Alayna snuggled up with her favorite stuffed animal (beast) Fetch.
I also want to include a couple of prayer requests....
Amy from New Nostalgia is going through breast cancer. I so enjoy her posts (and of course her blog:) so throw out some prayers for her, will ya?!
And another one of my fave blogs is Annie from The House That Jade Built. They are dealing with the possibility of their unborn baby being born with Down's Syndrome and many health issues.
These two ladies have really struck a chord with me, and I consider myself one of their prayers warriors! Will you join me?

You are a sweet heart! Thank you for the prayers friend & so glad to see your little girl is feeling better now. It's also past 9 and I'm in bed reading blogs - craving your soup and fettucini! Too bad my husband isn't a short order chef or I'd have him cooking now!
