Halloween Cookie Adventure

My mom sent me some Halloween cookie cutters in the mail...a ghost, a cat, and a pumpkin:
The humerous part of all of this is that I don't bake things! But I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try to make some cookies from scratch. They ended up tasting like the yummy frosted ones from the store :) I used a recipe from my Betty Crocker cook book and bought my frosting and sprinkles from the store. Here they are straight out of the oven:
I figured out that I wasn't a fan of the decorating part so I didn't do my best work...I got lazy! Here is the finished product:
Hope I made you proud, Mom!

Humility Test

Pastor Rich preached a message on humility. I think you can listen to it at Here is something he left with us to think about:
  1. Am I teachable?
  2. How do I respond to correction?
  3. Have I repented quickly and thoroughly?
  4. Am I considerate of others?
  5. Do I serve and receive service well?
  6. Am I aware of the evidence of God's grace in my life?
  7. Have I disagreed agreeably?
  8. How much attention and affirmation do I require?
All of these spoke to me in some form or fashion but the ones that really stuck out were #1 and #2. These are the two that I'm currently struggling with...How about you?

My Seventeen Magazine Embarrassing Moment

I have to give props to my friend, Lindsay Roth, for the title idea. I told her this story and she said it reminded her of the embarrassing stories they put in Seventeen magazines when we were teenagers :)
Last night, our friends Dan and Becca came over and we played a friendly game of Battle of the Sexes. One of us must have left the door open to the bathroom and my dog, Angel, got bored and decided to explore through the trash can. This might be the appropriate time to let you all know that it's currently my time of the month. Basically, Angel came down the stairs with a surprise in her mouth in the form of a pad! GROOOOOSSSSS!!!! I could care less if Jimmy, or even Becca saw it...but Dan?! I think my quickness in hiding the evidence was very good so I'm pretty sure Dan was clueless.
