Friday Phone Dump

It's that time of the week again: time to dump out all your cell phone pictures on your blog. Link back here & let me know in the comments so I can come peek at your pictures. Here's my week!

On Wednesday night, one of the kiddos I was watching got a little crazy with the Cross cookie cutter. I think we had about a dozen purple crosses lined up on the table before he was done.

I will never understand boy brains. One night last week after Samuel's shower, I went into the bathroom & found an empty applesauce cup in the trash next to the toilet. Nice huh? Everyone eats a snack on the toilet, right?

Speaking of snacks, I saw this in the grocery store tonight. Digestive Wheat Biscuits. Doesn't that sound tasty? (gag)

We've had rain several times this week, so I've been burning my candles a lot. I love to burn them for the scent, but when it's rainy, I'm always wondering if my electricity will go out & I will need the candle for light. I am SO happy to support a ministry of my girlfriend, Mandy. She makes these candles & the profits go to for the silent. Don't know what that is? Click HERE to find out. Like the candle? Go to Facebook & search for Shine Your Light candles.

See? I told you it rained! (I'm a little obsessed with cool-looking clouds.)

Some of Sarah's weekly photography practice. (These are her favorite shoes!)

...and this is her goofy attempt at looking like a hippie by using her headband & making a 70s look. ha ha!

Pumpkin oatmeal. Plain oatmeal + a couple spoonfuls of canned pumpkin + a little butter & raw sugar = YUM!!!

One of the highlights of my week! One of my very bestest girlfriends gave me this Bible for my birthday! I was totally WOWed by it! It's my first ESV!!! I haven't had a chance to really delve into it yet, but I know it will be awesome. I may still carry my NIV Life Applications Study Bible to church, but this one will be my word study/compare versions/cross-reference tool. No doubt it time, it will become my go-to-church & use-it-all-the-time Bible as well because my NIV is quickly falling apart!

Remember how I told you last week that we had started Samuel on ADHD medicine? I had to brag on him. This is the cleanest I've seen his room in a couple of years! Wow! Way to go, buddy! Seriously, I don't think I've been able to see this much of his carpet since we moved into this house in 2005!!

And for this week's know those women who can roll right out of bed & without doing their hair or make up, they look amazing?

Yeah....I'm not one of them.

What a difference 10 minutes, a little make up & a curling iron can make. Thank goodness for modern inventions.

How creative is that? Fun! A phone dump! You will LOVE your ESV Study Bible! I switched to that one about a year and a half ago, I think. And I haul that thing with me everywhere! It's huge, yes. But worth it to me. And Liz, your before and after photos are GREAT! However, I must say, I doubt I'd have the guts. My before is WAY scarier! This was fun...thank you for inviting me over here!

Liz, you are a brave woman. There's no way I'm posting a morning pic of myself. :)
