Out of the Mouths of Babes

Yesterday we went to Abilene to go to Hobby Lobby, Home Depot, and just get out of the house some before going back to school. Jacob and Carley were in the backseat having a conversation about God and what he looks like and how he acts, that sort of thing. I hear Jacob say "Carley you don't know, you haven't seen him" and Carley responds "yes I do, I seen him before he sent me down here". I start to laugh and told Brad that we have told them their entire life that God sent them here to live with us, so I guess she was actually listening. Too Cute!!!

I can't believe you are 8 years old! It seems like such a short time ago I welcomed you into my life, yet I cannot remember a time without being your mommy.
You have always been my sweet boy, who acts just like me. Poor thing, you inherited my "OCDness" and have to have everything just the right way.

But you also have a silly side just like your daddy and your uncle!

You have made it so far, so fast and are turning into an awesome "BIG" boy!

I Love You Jacob!

The Very Best Vanilla Ice Cream!

I found an awesome recipe for my fellow ice cream lovers:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 T. vanilla
2 c. half & half
2 c. whipping cream
Mix all ingredients and place in ice cream maker.
This ice cream is unbelievable. It has the texture kinda of like frozen whipped cream. I am sure it's not fattening at all LOL! I have also added many things to mine such as bananas, chocolate chips,etc. I am pretty sure you can't go wrong with it!
