Red Velvet Fudge Thumbprint Cookies ~ Soft, Chewy Red Velvet Cookies Filled with White Chocolate Fudge and Drizzled with Chocolate!
Happy Sunday! Today we are celebrating the baptism of Miss Rylin Jo and we are so thankful we have been blessed with her and Praise God! She’s the sweetest little baby ever. Yes, I know every mom claims that, but honestly she’s the best baby. Sleeps well, smiles, tries to talk, is so content that she makes babies seem easy, well as easy as they get!
I ordered a cake for her baptism dinner and cookies to serve at church. I’m pretty sure I referred to Rylin as a “her” in the conversation when I placed my order, but somewhere between ordering and the pick up Miss Rylin turned into a he apparently and we ended up with blue crosses on the cookies and blue frosting on the cake. Sigh. Life will go on but I’m slightly annoyed. It’s kind of par for the course this week. It’s been one of those weeks were I just don’t know if I can handle one more thing and I’m trying to put all my faith in God. He will lead me through this.
It all started with Miss K getting diagnosed with RSV on Monday. She pulled through and was on the mend. Friday afternoon I was at my parents and Miss K woke up from her nap and was a little cranky. I didn’t think much of it because had been sick and then she started pulling on her ear. The funny thing was my Mom and I had just had a conversation about her not having many ear infections while she was sleeping. Insert foot in mouth. The hubs ended up taking her straight to the ER and she had double ear infection. I never had ear infection as a child but after watching her I have no doubt it’s miserable. We were up a lot through the night and she decided she hates her medicine and threw it all up on Saturday morning. Fun times people fun times.
We also found out Friday morning that my husband’s uncle passed away suddenly that morning. It came as a shock and I’m still in utter disbelief. It’s another reminder to me that we need to hug our loved ones every day and tell each other we love each other. You never know what tomorrow will bring. We don’t count our blessing nearly enough in life. As much as God has thrown at me this week I know we will come out on the other side of this and if I put my faith in Him everything will be fine!
