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!

grandma's cookies

My cute grandma always made these beautiful big 
bunny cookies for Easter. 
She made enough for everyone she knew. 
If you happened to be anywhere near her house when she was making the cookies
you were able to help.
Grandma was and still is known for her cookies.
When she passed away in 1997 I asked my dad about the cookie cutter.
He asked his sister and she said, "I got the bunny."
That was that.
Just before Christmas this past year I got a call from my aunt.
She is one of my most favorite people in the history of ever.
I love to talk to her.
She told me that she wanted me to have the bunny.
She remembered my dad asking her about it.

A few weeks ago the bunny arrived!

I was so excited I let out a yell!
Since then I have googled this little guy.
It seems that the cookie cutter in from the 1930's.
Formay was a shortening company. 
My grandma was a young teeenager in the 1930's.
I have to wonder if the cookie cutter was once her mothers.

On the first day of spring I whipped up a batch of my grandma's famous
sugar cookies. I made one for each of the kiddies to decorate.

One dozen cookies and one dozen grand-kids.

Here are my classy grandparents!
I think I kind of look like my grandma, good,
because when I grow up I want to be just like her.
