I have not posted a Monday Tidbit, or anything for that matter, in quite a while. The truth is, I have just been too busy and pretty tired lately. Here are a couple updates...

Today is proving to be somewhat of a challenge in terms of publishing this blog. This weekend was great, I got a lot done around the house, everyone is well--I can't complain. But there was just one thing that occurred and has been on mind ever since.

Everyday there are thoughts floating through my head, thoughts that are as easily lost as they are found. As I am changing my son's diaper, there are at least five or six blog worthy "thinklings" that never quite make their way to this here little blog of mine. There are those wise words I want to share with my daughter about obstacles she may encounter on her sure to be winding road to womanhood, the little nuggets of wisdom I'd like to share with my sons and just general life moments that are thought of and then, POOF! Lost forever to the abyss of lost thoughts.

Although I have been baking these cookies at least three or four years, I have never actually posted the recipe or even written it down. I do want to share these with you all because they are that good. I will not take all the credit for these wondrously delicious cookies, as they are a mish-mosh of sorts, a perfected finale of past failures in the kitchen. Ladies and gentlemen, without further adieu, I present to you...

Finally, I am (almost but not really) all caught up on life! Summer is coming to an end and I finally got some "spring" cleaning done, I've tackled a few things that were clogging up my "to do" list, and I am feeling pretty good, physically-post pregnancy and all.

I Just got a call from my husband who is at our dentist's office with our two older children and baby. He is dying laughing--dying! He managed, between fits of laughter, to tell me why. If you have ever met Ezra, you know that he is one very happy baby. It's the first thing most people notice about him, how happy he is. As soon as he sets eyes on you, he smiles. If you talk to him he smiles, if you smile at him he smiles. Seriously, he is really THAT happy--it doesn't take much.

If you know my husband, you know that he is "eclectic." A man who cares not what people think of him; he picks his nose in public when it itches and farts in crowded (and very quiet) movie theaters. I will admit I was often frustrated with him the first five or so years of marriage. But then I woke up, took the stick out of my butt, and lived a little (a lot). Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the funniest guy I know.

A couple weeks ago I blogged about Ezra's birth story and mentioned it would be posted at one of my favorite pregnancy sites, Modern Alternative Pregnancy. Well, it's been posted, I feel famous, and I'd love for you to check it out (again if you already read through my version)!

Before I get into the meat of the story I have to give a shout out to my mom--she called it! She claimed a couple weeks before Ezra was born, that he should and would be born on the 26th. And she was right! He was born right smack-dab in the middle of the day.
