could be better, could be worse

Well, another month gone and no baby. I'm disappointed but still feeling faithful. The only way I've learned to deal is to throw myself into non-reproductive interests. So here goes...

I just got out of the kitchen after putting the icebox butter cookies in the icebox. Here they are right before going in. Since there was an overwhelming decision in the vote (3-0 for icebox cookies) I picked up some parchment and butter (yes real butter this time) today and got to work. The recipe calls for the optional addition of shaved chocolate or crushed nuts but I finally decided today to just make them plain. If they turn out good I'm thinking of using them for a halloween party and decorating them with orange sugar on the rim. I'll bake them either later today or tomorrow and I'll be sure to update you as soon as I can.

If you believe in prayer, please pray for us during this trying journey in our lives. Thanks.

You guys will be in my thoughts. I know you are probably geting tired of people saying it will happen,but it will. Like everything else, probably when you are just about to give up or least likely expect it.

Now, on to your baking? How do you stay so thin, when you are baking all these yummy items? LOL!

What can I say, I'm a freak. My issue is actually not weighing enough. I'm backwards girl, it's genetic.
