This blog is about our family, who have dealt with the loss of two sons with Muscular Dystrophy, the adoption of a son diagnosed with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum and the birth our a healthy little girl. It's a crazy life, but we are loving it.

Photo A Day

OK. I think I'll jump on the bandwagon.

I've read a couple of  blogs who do the Photo A Day Challenge. Looks like fun. Let's see how far I'll go with it before I get lazy and just stop. I didn't start this until the 16th, so here it goes...

Flower - Emily picks me flowers all the time.

Something you don't like - that would be sweeping and mopping. I loathe this job.

Hair - Emily's crazy up do before jumping in the tub.

Orange - My highlighter.

Something I drew.
Bottle - Our medicine basket sitting in my kitchen with my vitamins, Ethan's meds and our allergy meds.

The last thing I bought - Mark got two new suits yesterday.

We also had a banana bread bake-off at work. I won!!!! Me and two other ladies baked some banana bread and we had 5 judges taste them. 4 out of 5 judges picked mine! I was totally excited. The other ladies were telling what their secret ingredient was. One said buttermilk and the other said whole wheat flower and nutmeg. They looked at me and I was like, I have no secret ingredient. Straight forward banana bread, baby!!

So I'm including my award winning recipe below. So fun to say that! Enjoy!

 Award Winning Banana Bread 

4 Large Ripe Bananas
3/4 c. White Sugar
1 Egg
1/3 c. Melted Butter
1 tsp baking soda
