We are super-duper excited and when we told the kids, we got the whole thing on video. Judah clapped and cheered and it was so beyond precious. Later, he said he needed to call his Auntie to tell her that "Mommy has a baby in her tummy!".
Pregnancy is one of those things that I just love. I love the miracle of new life and even when I'm sick, I'm trying to embrace every moment. I feel incredibly blessed and I'm excited that our family is growing. It's amazing to think that God already has a plan for this little one!
Today we had a fun morning out Blueberry picking with our MOPS friends. It was a great time and we ended up coming home with a decent amount of berries! Not too bad, considering Paisley only picked the unripe green ones and Judah spilled his entire bucket (by mistake!).
here and I highly recommend it. I love these! They were super easy to make, the texture is perfect and they have just the right amount of sweetness.
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cold unsalted butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Zest and juice of one lemon
4 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch pan.
2. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, and baking powder. Mix in salt and lemon zest. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of dough into the prepared pan.
3. In another bowl, stir together the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
