Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Five for Friday

1.  I made the easiest cake/bread two nights ago and it was delicious.  You have to try it.

Two (or Three) Ingredient Pumpkin Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease bundt pan.
  2. Beat ingredients until mixed well.
  3. Spoon into greased bundt pan.
  4. Bake 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake/bread comes out clean. (I had to bake a lot longer - more like 45 but just keep checking after you pass 28 minutes)
  5. Let cool.  When cool enough to handle, invert onto plate and pour apple cider glaze (recipe below) over top.  Enjoy!

Apple Cider Glaze

  1. In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients until smooth.
  2. Drizzle over cake.  If it’s too thick to drizzle, thin with juice.
  3. Enjoy!
Your loved ones will thank you!

2.  Miller is doing better.  Turning his pj's backwards have helped!  No more accidents on the floor or anywhere else.  
My crazies!!!
Look at that face...t.r.o.u.b.l.e!

3.  We have quite a few Forrest Spence 5k t-shirts left over if you are interested in purchasing one.  We have YL, S, M, and XL.  Let me know in the comments if you would like to purchase one.  They are my favorite shirts so far.

4.  I had a painting commissioned by a friend in Memphis.  I am in L.O.V.E!!!  It turned out great.  The 3 kiddos are my 3 (we envisioned what we thought baby girl would look like) with the trees in the background representing Forrest.  Cortney did a great job!

5.  I am already loving the sweet things little girls can wear.  Much different than my boys.  It was so fun picking out the girliest monogram for her church bag and picking out sweet dresses.  Such a different world than boys.

Happy Friday friends!  Enjoy your weekend!

I am still so in love with that painting!!! I'm thinking of asking Kevin to give that to me for Christmas. I think it's such a unique way to capture the kids' lives. I especially love that all four of yours are represented! And little girl clothes are the best. Seriously so cute. I've got a couple of small girly things in sizes that might work.

I LOVE the painting!! Cortney did a great job! Can't wait to see in person!

You know, you keep saying that you hope baby Girl will be more calm... might I ask what you were like as a child? I don't see you being so calm :)

Have fun this weekend!! Can't wait to hear about it- I hope you do a whole lot of nothing!
