~My 3 other helpers that helped me this week~

~Since I have had gestational diabetes with my last 2 babies, I'm trying to be careful of what I eat during this pregnancy. We have not been making or eating desserts, but last night I was hungry for something. I found a recipe in the kids cookbook that only called for 3 Tablespoons of sugar for 12 muffins. (And then you fill the center with a tablespoon of your favorite jam.) Since we had Splenda sweetened Smuckers Strawberry jam, I knew that baby and I wouldn't be getting too much sugar. Kimberly was busy, so I laid on the couch and coached Sarah and Noah on how to make these muffins. =) All was going well, until I told Sarah that we needed a Tablespoon of baking powder (and I said, "The big one" (meaning the big spoon.) Well, I looked over and saw her dutifully filling a 1 CUP MEASURING CUP WITH BAKING POWDER!! =D Thankfully, I got her to switch to a Tablespoon just in time. Later after the muffins were all made she confessed that she didn't measure the 1 cup of milk, that she just DUMPED! HELP!~
~Thankfully, the Lord had mercy on our muffins and they were very good. (I think Kimberly wants to post the recipe later on our family blog.) Sarah and Noah have also been helping run errands, wash dishes, set the table, etc.~
~And my other sweet HELPER!! Need I say more? =D
Please do pray for Phillip. He is to return to us tomorrow. However, he has never received a receipt for the ticket he bought. So, when he gets to the airport in the morning, please pray that he can fly home. For he is 24 hours away, and that would mean buy another ticket which would be Expensive last minute, or he would have to take a miserable 24 hour bus ride home, getting home on Tuesday. We (and He) are past READY to be together!! It has been a long week apart.

Oh Heather, how in the world do you stay still seeing a "cup of baking powder" about to go into your muffins????? I think that would have brought me not just off the couch but somewhere above the ceiling! Your more brave than I thought but what a memory maker that one is. Glad to see the pics of your other helpers. The little monkey with his banana is a doll baby. How we love them all and the Daddy and Mommy as well. Praying for that ticket in the morning. Love, Moma

Noah saying 'cheese' in the first picture makes me laugh. I liked your comment about the Lord having mercy on the muffins. Lol!
I see that 'Piggy' still loves bananas.
Oh dear! My heart cannot bear the thought of Phillip not getting credit, or a flight, for the money he gave for a plane ticket home!
Sometimes, you all's adventurous life is more than my heart can bear.
I am constantly praying for each of you!
Mom D
