I used to think that the "projectile vomit" stories were more hyperbole than fact. Today, I joined the ranks of women who have witnessed this very real natural phenomenon. One bite of carrots. One gag. The rest is a blur.

I hung a picture I made in college (yeah Children's Lit!) above her dresser. Fern and Wilbur add a nice classic children's literature touch. The red and white quilt hanging on her chair was handmade by my best friend from childhood, Sarah (Huett) Sprunger. My grandma made the Raggedy Ann doll sitting on the shelf above the window. What a treasures! I sure wish I could do that stuff!
Well, that's Olivia's room so far. I have been waiting to post on it until it was "done", but I don't think it will ever really be done, and this is probably as good as it is going to get for a while. Little by little :)

For favors, I stuck a magnet on the back of some little wooden animals I purchased from Michael's. They were already painted, and I just had to write the theme verse on them with a white paint-pen. Not super-original idea, but it worked and it was quick!

Please pray for Dr. and Mrs. Horn
"Last Wednesday, Beth and I received news from her doctor, that Beth has a case of fairly advanced cancer. The Lord has chosen that for us. We are confident that the Lord is at work in all of this, He is sustaining us. The cancer is of two types. One type is in her upper chest area. There is a tumor in her upper chest, which the doctors are calling in situ, but the other form of cancer has broken out of that cell and is making its way into her lymph system. There is at least one major set of lymph nodes that has been compromised. We are asking the Lord that He would be gracious and not allow that to spread."- Dr. Sam Horn

The SpreadStromboli: Roll out Pizza Dough to about the size of a 13x9 pan. Cover with 2 c. mozzarella cheese, purple onion (about 1/2 cup, chopped), green pepper (about 1/2 c chopped), cooked italian sausage (I use 2-3 links-remove the casings and crumble and brown-- then freeze the rest), and pepperoni. Roll up long side and pinch edges. Slather with beaten egg (until covered-- you won't use the whole egg). Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with a marinara sauce. MMMMM!
Strawberry Queen Cake: Bake a Golden Vanilla cake, and cover with strawberries, strawberry glaze, and REAL WHIPPED CREAM. It is worth the extra effort (in my opinion) to beat the heavy whipping cream instead of using cool whip.
