Baked Cookies with my Mother -in- Law

(A Christmas Vacation post)
I remember during premarital counseling, discussing  different topics as they would apply to our marriage. One topic was awesome to discuss, my in-laws! So many people struggle with their spouse’s family and parents, I am beyond blessed to say that I do not. (I mean everyone has their moments, but) My husband’s parents are sweet and enjoyable people to be around. Here are some moments that his mom and I shared over Christmas break while we were staying with them.

Yes, I had tons of fun making a mess!
I enjoy eating cookie dough.
It is sooo much fun to feed peanut butter to puppies! Daisy left, Zeke (my Husband’s boyhood beagle-mix) is on the right.
I was glad, some of their lights weren’t working, so they had delayed decorating the tree. I enjoy sentimental acts like that. The husband does not, and was the one taking pictures.
She even showed me how to make a homemade Italian Lasagna. Its neat to see how this family recipe has changed in generations. She makes it easier on herself and prepares it the day before. The time in the fridge allows the noodles to soak up liquid from the sauce before baking. I have yet to try this recipe, but I promise that when I do I’ll share the moment with you all!
Daisy also enjoyed the Northern snow, and chasing the large populations of deer across the street. It was a confirmation of her Beagle heritage to hear her baying.

  • Rescued Penguins For My Birthday I daydream about being a Disney princess…but it isn’t for the princes, the fancy castle, clothes, or even the books (I know *gasp*!) its because I secretly wish that I could whistle (ok, I can’t even whistle in the first place…) and animals would come walk over to me. Sure there are some animals that [...]
  • Ranted about the “Me Before You... Guys, why do we (especially the Christian conservatives) freak out about EVERY new book (but more so when its made into a movie) that comes out with an agenda that doesn’t quite match God’s standards?

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
