Light of my Life

Please come visit me in my new location. Same blog, new address. Hope to see you there! 🙂


First off, hello blog, sorry for virtually forgetting about your existence for all these months! Yes, we are alive and well (other than all the yucky germs that have been going around the past month or so); I guess I have just been too busy to post!

So, let’s start off the new year with a picture to make your mouth water.

I have had a taste for doughnuts lately, and I have this new rule that if I want sweets, I have to make them myself instead of buying them. I’ve never made doughnuts before and was a bit intimidated by the frying part, so a few days ago I attempted a baked doughnut recipe. They were very good, but really not like doughnuts at all, more like doughnut-shaped sweet bread rolls. So tonight I decided to give the fried doughnuts a try. It was surprisingly easy, and I can’t describe how delicious they were. Good thing I only made 1/4 of a recipe – it would not be good to have a couple dozen of these babies lying around the house! Can you tell from the picture how cute the doughnut holes were?

Of course, I made them right after dinner, so this is what I am left with:

Worth it? I’d say yes. The doughnuts are gone already, so I think the family would agree. 😉

Me: How old will you be on your next birthday?

Carrie: Four years old!

Me: Four years old?!?! How did you get to be such a big girl???

Carrie: Well, first I turned one, then I turned two, and next I turned three, and on my next birthday I’ll turn four!

Me: They’re twins, but one was born before midnight, and one was born after, so they have different birthdays. Isn’t that funny?

Logan: That sounds like a twin glitch!

I thought my pepper plant had died, but apparently it was just in a coma. It’s back, and it’s actually growing a little pepper! Isn’t this the cutest little pepper you’ve ever seen?


And my lettuce is growing…


And my green onions:


I have never had any interest whatsoever in gardening before, but so far this has been more fun than I ever would have dreamed. Stay tuned over the coming months to see if anything edible actually results from all this toil!

I’m really not ready for this:


Or this:


Or this!!!!


Isn’t she too young to be climbing already??? Isn’t it wild enough that she’s already walking? What kind of crazily ambitious little dynamo do I have on my hands???
