Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Last night, I felt ambitious and made homemade raviolis with homemade ricotta cheese stuffing.  Honestly, it's not that hard, just rolling the pasta out as flat as you can is time consuming and takes a little elbow grease.  Maybe one day I will own a pasta roller.  That would be fun!  And ricotta, that is really simple to make.  Here's the website I used for that
my pasta dough, resting
Stuffed raviolis waiting to be boiled
all cooked and cooling off

sauced and ready to eat!
So, if you have the time, it's pretty fun and satisfying to make your own pasta.  One day, I'd like to try making spinach pasta and tomato pasta.  Yum!

Finn's Turn

 Today, Finn got to have his turn at going to a farm class.  My dad was so wonderful and agreed to help me drive him since the times overlapped with my bible study group and Cadence's preschool.

So, off the boys went to the farm!  My dad dropped Finn off for an hour and then took him to a couple of playgrounds afterwards.  He packed a great lunch for him, it must have been good because Finn ate 2 sandwiches.  They played on the playground and threw rocks into the City Park Lake.
Finn got to bring a brown egg home, just like Cadence.  It sounds like he had a great time and will be ready to return next week!

Baby's first photo!

Brad, Cadence and I went to see pictures of the baby, yesterday, at our 20 week ultrasound.  Cadence was very interested and asked a lot of questions.  She said that the baby looked squished and said that I need to make my tummy bigger to give it more room.  I told her I'd work on it.
