On my 80th day of blogging, we attended my grandma Pearl's 80th birthday party.  With all of the people watching, Luke was too intimidated to want to smile for the camera.  But Pearl looks great, doesn't she?

Ava's yogurt is organic whole fat peach flavor, and Luke's yogurt is plain nonfat mixed with strawberry jam, but apparently both are totally delicious.


Thanks for coming to play today, Ava!

Last night was book club night. Great friends, great conversation, great book, great theology, and great wine. :)

ps. If you have any questions about your faith, I HIGHLY recommend that you read this book, or listen to Tim Keller's free sermons online on the topic, "The trouble with Christianity, why it's so hard to believe it." http://sermons.redeemer.com/store/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_ID=29  Would I be being dramatic if I said that it has changed my life??

Luke and I had a great time visiting his Holland cousins yesterday. When Luke and Becca took a bath together, I saw the perfect photo op.  Doesn't everyone have an embarrassing picture of them sharing a bath with another child?

Luke found a big stick on the ground this morning.

He proceeded to play sword with it.

 Who taught by little boy this violent behavior??

We had a fabulous play date today with my friend Becky and her little sweetheart Ian. While us moms are sitting together chatting, I look over and for some reason Luke is choosing to stay perfectly still in this position for 15 seconds straight:


Blueberry Buckle Coffee Cake

I was slightly panicky last week when I could not find my mother's Blueberry Buckle Coffee Cake recipe.  I turned to the Ada Christian School cookbook (typically my savior in these desperate situations) but the recipe in it was just for Blueberry Buckle.  That, as it turns out, is a dessert. We ate it for breakfast, anyway, which resulted in serious sugar stomach aches. Finally my sister rescued me when she found her copy of my mom's recipe and gave me the recipe over the phone. 

Aaaaaahhh Mmmmmmmm.

Totally yummy blueberry bliss.
