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 self-portrait....you 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. :)
