Is that not the prettiest cookie you have ever seen???

I bet you didn’t even realize that it was a cookie!

My sweet supervisor had left it in the office for me when I went to work on Saturday – what a fun surprise!

She is sooo talented (and her cookies taste as great as they look 🙂 )!

Kooking in Kate's Kitchen


I shared some of Katie and Paul’s story last year – you can click here to read about their struggles with infertility.  They continue to hope for a baby and are saving for another procedure.  I’d love to support Katie and Paul by sending some cookie orders their way!

If you are interested in placing an order, please contact Kate at



So after a fun Thanksgiving break, we have gotten back into the swing of things.

Ryan and I learned about sponges yesterday and worms today as we continue to study invertebrates.  We even”tried” to dissect an earthworm…that’s hard to do on such a skinny specimen – LOL!  We’ll be conducting an experiment on LIVE worms tomorrow, so stay tuned 😉 !

Ryan is up to James 1:22 for his memory work!  We’ll be practicing a lot over the next two weeks because he’ll be reciting these verses on December 10th for his oral presentation.

Ryan has also been working on grammar, cursive, reviewing the books of the Bible and alphabetical order, grammar, history, math, and spelling.  He wrote a personal narrative and will be starting a new paper in the next few days.   Ryan has also been making ornaments to hand out when we go Christmas caroling at a local nursing home in two weeks.

I don’t have any pictures of Brendan to share, but he is doing well too –  I’ll try to sneak a few pics tomorrow 🙂 .  I’ll also be sharing about how our family keeps Christ in Christmas.  It’s hard to believe that it’s only 23 days away!

One thought on “Thankful!

  1. Love the cookie! Katie is very talented!

    Now, that worm is another story! It’s gross! Yuk!

    Wow! Ryan has memorized 22 verses! So proud of him and can’t to hear him recite them next time I see him. I know he will do well on Dec 10!

    Love yall lots and lots………
