chocolate chip banana cake with peanut butter frosting

Making this from scratch with some help from my Braveheart boy.  Looking so good in the oven, yum. Smells so good. I wish I had photo room for you!!

It looks so great cooling on the oven....

Ok, so it looks very stinking good and it ended up tasting even better..I would recommend that, in future, one would use 2 round baking pans and cook accordingly for it being more fully done in center.

This one's a keeper but not many of the family were overly excited about it.  Mom and I loved it, hubby had left over pie so we'll get back to you, one boy wasn't keen on the PB frosting, one oldest picky one 'doesn't eat stuff with banana in it' and one girl doesn't like PB at all and my last kid..well he likes everything but not sure he tried it yet tonight!!

Peace out...folks, it was fun to bake and want to again, it's been awhile what with the whole living at a hospital thing....

Have fun in the kitchen...

DAY 100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, this is DAY 100 post transplant!  This is, by no means, the end of his journey nor is BRAVEHEART completely out of the woods yet, but this is a huge milestone in progress.  
Thank you Jesus!!!

just sayin'.................

I am starting a new special feature here on my blog where I can make one statement fun comments that may or may not be cool and quite possibly will be a way to just muse in brief, get some mild complaining off my chest or maybe some kind of awesome praise........just sayin'!

last day radiation today!!

We are so thankful for so many answers to prayer.!  Today marks the end of radiation for our son. We are so thankful for this gift of individualized care they have given our Braveheart.  Now I must get some Christmas preparations finished!
Keep praying.

investing in their hearts...encouragement for mommies


Now it is true that we are in difficult times and the culture pulls at our children’s hearts and some may go astray. But that doesn’t mean all will-and it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t fight for their hearts, give them a reason to be faithful, seek to make our home the best place they will ever be, so that they will want to be with us and love the God we love and serve.

Here is the link for the full article.  It doesn't mean everyone MUST homeschool, but whatever God leads you to do, let it be an investment in their hearts.....

I hope you can take a moment and read this article.  I always love reading things from Sally.

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
