Oh be careful little Mom what you say.....

Last night after church, a group of adults were discussing their concerns about the upcoming elections. Emily was listening in, as usual. When I tucked her into bed, she wanted to know "who is Obama?" How do you explain Obama to a five year old? I tried to explain the ideological differences between us and Obama. It didn't work! The only conclusion she drew from my explanation is that OBAMA is a "bad guy". "Well Emily, let's pray for him tonight". So she did. Minutes later after turning out her light, I heard yelling from her room. "Mom, I'm scared Obama is going to climb in my window!!" I give up! No more political discussions with a kindergartener!

Fall is in the air!!!!

Pumpkin Bread Trifle
Layer upon layer of yummy pumpkin bread, vanilla cream, caramel sauce, and praline pecans

It's one of those perfect fall days. The guys are in the front yard playing football. Emily wore a turtleneck and tights to violin. We've mowed our yard for the last time this season (hopefully). Chicken noodle soup is simmering and I tried a new recipe--Praline Pumpkin Bread Trifle. Come on over and I'll brew you a nice cup of hazelnut coffee to go with it.
