~Sarah's Sentiments~

First, a note from my Mommy and baby brother or sister! =) Thank y'all for all of your nice congratulations and nice comments on our baby. I'm nearly 2 months along, due near the end of May. I DON'T THINK I'm carrying twins, it's just that Noah made my tummy stretch to Mexico, so this baby is trying to keep up with his/her big brother. =) Since Noah was 12 days late and weighed 10 lbs and 6.7 oz,(AND I HAD NO PAIN MEDICATION AND NO EPIDURAL!!!) I'm praying that this baby will BE ON TIME, and weigh no more than my Sarah did, 7.4! =D Last week, my girls violin teacher didn't know that I was expecting a baby and soooo sick and invited our girls to a violin festival and ASKED US TO MAKE 70 VIOLIN SHAPED COOKIES TO BRING TO PASS OUT THERE! I didn't want to disappoint her for she knows how much I NORMALLY love to BAKE, so not knowing HOW I would do it now that I'm sooo sick and tired with this pregnancy, I agreed. WHEW! I was soooo sick while I was making those cookies, but the Lord and Kimberly helped me and we got them done, and our teacher was very pleased. When she came to pick us up I told her about our baby and that I was sooo sick while making those cookies, but the Lord helped me get them done. The teacher is very excited about our baby!~Our 70 violin shaped cookies, that we cut out and decorated too. All of the students and teachers at the violin festival seemed to enjoy them. ~Heather~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Now, here is Sarah!~~
~Hi! I want to show you some fun pictures of our violin festival and of some food that I made this week. Mommy took this picture at the violin festival. There were a lot of violinist there! Our teacher is the lady with the white shirt, and that is ME on the front row in the very left corner of this picture!~~This is my sister Kimberly and I at the violin festival!~~This is our violin teacher (Adriana) on the left and Kimberly playing a violin duet in front of everyone. Adriana had asked that all of the kids get into pairs to play this song, but Kimberly didn't know anyone there, (and I can't play that song yet) so our teacher played with her, and they did good. This violin festival was a good experience for my sister and I.~~After the violin festival our teacher walked to the mall with us and bought our supper. We had a fun time with her, she is sweet! (Mommy took this picture!)~
~Mommy let me use the left over cookie dough after she made the 70 violin cookies and I had fun cutting out cookies, baking them, and decorating them, and my brother Noah "helped" me!~
~The finished product! (with a little red icing on my face, that my Mommy thought was so cute, and I DIDN'T LIKE!)~~Since Mommy is sooo sick right now, I decided to make her and we kids a Strawberry smoothie. Mommy told me how, and I made it all by myself. It was fun, and yummy! =) ~

Sarah,
I will stop at Basket Country today and tell Veta about your blog so she can see what her cookie cutters are doing in Columbia! That will make her day!
You're a little sweetie and I love you VERY much! Have Mommy give you a BIG hug from Aunt Nesi! You are being an awesome missionary and God is taking note of all you do and He WILL reward YOU for it! All the little and big things count with Him and you are doing an exceptional job! I love you! Aunt Nesi

Sarah, it is so great that you are able to help your mother out while she has been sick. Great job to all you to help your Mother. Sarah your cookies looks really good. Good job. I remember back when my girls first learned to cook. They do great now. As your girls will too. Sarah I wanted to tell you we have a daughter her name is Sarah too. She likes to help others too. As so do my other two daughters, Ruth who is a mommy of 3 little boys. Then our youngest Rebecca, who helps he father and myself a lot. Isn't it wonderful how God helps us through life? Keep up the good work and God bless you each one in your work there.
