Two Wolves ~ What Will You Choose??

I have a women's group that I attend for my therapy and this story was brought up a few weeks ago. The coordinators wrote it out for us and I wanted to share it with you. It is such a good illustration that we become who we are by what we spend our energy on.


Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his granson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply relied, "The one you feed."

HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY MELODY!!!!! =)





HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY MELODY DAWN!!!!!

It's hard to believe that my baby is really 7 years old today. I hope you have a great day sweetie. We gave a few presents early because we had to postpone her birthday party yesterday. We got her a littlest pet shop toy from Roo and a little game called mastermind.

Here are some pictures of our morning. Have fun scrapbooking mom.


Here is Melody when was just a day old in the Special Care Nursery, she was only 4 1/2 pounds.



Here are the pictures from this morning:







































I love you so much my precious little girl. I can't wait to see how you grow this year and all the fun new adventures we will discover!!!

CHEESE MUFFINS RECIPE!!! YUMMY!!!!!!!

Here is one of our favourite recipes that we like to make. A friend was asking me for the recipe so thought I would share it on my blog!!


CHEESE MUFFINS ~ Makes 12 muffins

2 cups whole wheat flour (we rarely use white flour in our house anymore)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup marble cheese, grated (our fav but you can do whatever cheese you like best)
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease 12 muffin tins. (a great tip for this is to use a paper towel and get the butter on it and then wipe the tins, no mess for you to clean up later)

Sift together the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Stir in grated cheese.

Beat together egg, milk and oil for 1 minute. Stir liquid mixture into dry ingredients, only until combined. Batter should remain lumpy.

Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake on center shelf for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

~~ you can also make these easily into Pizza Muffins..... just put half the mixture into the muffin tin cup, add in a bit of spaghetti sauce and a slice of pepperoni, if you like. Then top with the rest of the muffin mixture to cover it. SOOOOOOO good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just For You KATELYN !!!!!!

Hi Katelyn sweetie, this post is just for you. I saw your mommy left me a message that you wanted to see some pictures of your friend Melody, well here they are.

Melody was in a play where she had to be a "clown" fish at school. Doesn't she look silly? Do you like all the colours of her hair? What colours do you see? She got to wear a wig and can take the colourful hair on and off whenever she wants to, isn't that awesome?


In this picture Melody made a picture of her family. Remember the photo album we sent you with the stickers? These are the same kind of stickers and has all of our family members in it. Who's in your family? Maybe you can ask mommy to get you some crayons and a piece of paper and draw a picture of your family!!


Melody LOVES to go out into the backyard and dig up bugs!!!!! Do you like bugs? Here she is showing one of her bugs that she dug up.


We took Melody out to have some hot chocolate. Yummy!!!!! What is your favourite kind of drink? Do you like hot or cold drinks? Maybe you and mommy can go out on a date and have a special juice drink together?


I hope you enjoyed this post just for you sweetie!! Tell mommy that you love her and give her a big kiss. When you see daddy, give him big HUGS!!!

((((((hugs to you sweet Katelyn))))))

Ruby's Memorial Stone Sketch

I just received the sketch of Ruby's footer stone in my email today. I love it and cannot wait for it to be done for her burial in August. It makes me sad that I have to do this but it looks so wonderful and very much like my little pumpkin.
