My oldest has just started pre-school and is loving it (although I'm pretty sure they are the culprit for these awful colds...sigh) anyhow he started preschool and attends in the mornings which gives me some good time with my youngest son as well as more time to sit down, drink some pumpkin spice latte and try to remember who I am (kids do that to your brain).

So that goes to say that my days have been exceedingly busy with kids and trying to get some order in this house of ours...(this would be a great time for mom to come to the rescue...hint...hint lol)
well this week was an official try-out for my very old ancient decrepit oven of mine...(did I mention old and decrepit?) to see if it could handle baking at all, and if so, how much, and how would cupcakes and cakes turn out? the oven is about 10 years old (I'm guessing) and was owned by a bachelor...in other words it had never been cleaned! it took me two hours and a garbage can full of dirty nasty paper towels to clean it out fully...but thank God it is clean and might I add that it is not smoking anymore...(that's the good news now for the bad)...the oven, however, is not very accurate and it is hard to judge the temperature, I am going to need to use an oven thermometer.
But don't get me wrong I am very very thankful to God for providing me with an oven at all! He has been amazing these past few weeks (well my whole life really ;-)...) He has blessed us so freely and continues to show us his ever present love. I am so grateful and blessed with two beautiful children who challenge me to be a better mother everyday and an amazingly devoted and doting husband who has been such a support to me and a constant encouragement. Thank you God!
