I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

brooke's cookies

Some of the kiddies came by this evening.
Brooke asked to make cupcakes or cookies.
She said she had a cookie recipe memorized and that she 
always makes them by herself.
I was happy to turn the mixer over to her.








Baby brother thought they were pretty good...

especially dipped in milk.

 Here is her recipe.
It's a good one.
I was pretty impressed that she had the recipe memorized.
I told her to write it up so we could share it with all of our peeps.


"Today we will live in the moment
unless it's unpleasant
in which case 
me will eat a cookie."
