Morning Craziness... It's All Relative, Isn't It?

It's only 10am and it's already been a crazy day!
I feared an ER visit was in order.  My husband cut his finger pretty bad at 745am.  I took a picture, but it's pretty gnarly (and it's his middle finger), so I'll refrain from posting it.
After paying $900 5 years ago for a cut on his forehead (which they glued), he was not going to the ER for this.
Thanks to a great friend who had some derma bond, we avoided it and were able to get glued up, come home and get going.

We have a family party today.
I'm bringing my absolute favorite homemade bread.  Fresh from the oven 20 minutes ago! (This is so easy to make.  Click here for the recipe and process).

2 dozen cupcakes for the birthday girl (yes, another celebration-co-party with her cousin turning 4!).
Ella filled the first dozen cupcakes.  It took 20 minutes ;)

Pink frosting.

I feel like I work at a bakery sometimes!

Last night Joe and Ethan went to pack food with other families from school at Feed My Starving Children. It's a great organization whose mission is to "Feeding God’s Starving Children Hungry in Body and Spirit".  


According to a website called worldhunger.org, there were 925 MILLION people who went hungry last year.  I don't know about you, but I'm rarely hungry and when I am, I'm a big crab.  I can easily make 4 loaves of bread and 2 dozen cupcakes without batting an eyelash.  I SO take for granted that I can eat (and drink clean water for that matter) whenever I want.

Well, Ethan loved serving along side his classmates for 90 minutes or so.  The kids at school also collected quarters in M&M mini candy tubes and raised over $500 for this organization!



Now that I'm finishing my blog post thinking about those going through so much around the world, my post title seems inappropriate.  My craziness pales in comparison.
I'm certainly thinking and praying for all of the tragedy going on in Japan.  Sometimes it's hard to know what to pray.  
"The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble." Psalm 9:9

  2. My Joe is a huge fan of Derma Bond! Happy to hear it all turned out ok.

    We're planning something similar to what Ethan and his classmates did for our Daisy Troop. How did Ethan's first day with his specs go?

    Will try the bread recipe over spring break - Annie will be a big fan!
