Ezra 5 Months

Look who is touching his toes!
He is now starting to twist and turn too, 
 which now means keeping my eye on him all the more, this
 little chunk is growing too fast for me :(
I am loving his lips, gums and chunky legs.
Happy 5 months my little Ezra
You make me so proud my little boy, you are my joy my delight.
Psalms 127:3-4 
 Children are a heritage from the LORD,    
 offspring a reward from him. 
  Like arrows in the hands of a warrior    
 are children born in one’s youth.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, 
softened 1/2 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter 
1/2 cup granulated sugar 
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 
1 egg 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
 1/4 teaspoon salt 
Preheat oven to 375°. Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light. Add the egg and mix until fluffy.  Blend the flour, baking powder, soda and salt together well. Add these dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Add the chocolate chips.  Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375°.

These cookies are so much fun,
you might want to make a double batch if your like me, (I can't get enough of them)
They were super easy to make and also very easy to consume :)

Big Boy

Ezra looking out the window,
just enjoying the rain,
like a big boy,
with a little help from daddy

Dining Room Paint

Honey Man and I painted our dining room set just a few weeks back. This set my mom gave to me and got for free from a dear friend, who's mother was wanting to get rid of some furniture. At that time I was only 16 but my mom knew I would be needing a dining room set when I got older and I am so glad she stored this for me, such a wise and sweet mama I have :) And  a sweet daddy for storing it all these years. I still have to get the breakfast buffet which is too large for our house right now.
This set was in very nice condition just needed to be stripped and stained which would cost a small fortune which we are not quite ready to pay yet. So late one evening I had just finished painting a dresser with this black flat paint and I thought, why don't I paint the dining room furniture!! So Honey Man and I stayed up way past our bed time to get it painted while the babies slept. The next day we did a second coat and then later finished with a little bit of distressing.
The paint has freshened up the dinning room
and changed the whole feeling of this part of the house.

Amount for expenses:
paint $7.00
Brushes $ 3.00
Total $10.00

A Birthday for Him

 We had fun celebrating Jon's Birthday on Monday. I ordered some of his gifts online so they were a little late in arriving which has given us the pleasure of  celebrating his Birthday all week.
He ordered his favorite carrot cake from me and we were eating off of it all week. We were sad when it was all gone. Maybe he can make it for me for my Mother's Day present :) 
Happy Birthday my Honey Man!
I love you.

A Delightful Photo shoot

 I had the privilege of taking some pictures of this yummy baby yesterday :)
His little spirit kept me laughing and laughing. His little baby rolls and diaper bottom were so much fun to capture.
My friend Daisy over at Graceful Becoming happens to be the mom of this little cutie pie. She is the loveliest hostess, cook and friend. Our time got eaten up so quickly without us even realizing it. She served me her delicious soup and some lovely coconut short bread cookies for dessert. A delightful cup of hot earl grey tea to top it off for me.
I hope to do some more photo shoots with them in the short future :)
