Isaac Turns Six!

Last Friday was Isaac’s sixth birthday. Six seems terribly old to me. Where has the time gone? The boys birthday’s always make me a bit sad because it reminds me they are growing up so fast. Birthday’s also make me feel happy and blessed to have been given these precious years with them.

Our party for Isaac was a bit rushed due to the fact that I was in labor. đŸ™‚ But what six year old wouldn’t mind being told to hurry through dinner so we can get to presents and cake?

The boys always get to pick what they want me to make for their birthday dinner. This year Isaac chose brats, macaroni and cheese, squash, green beans and asparagus. Yes, my boy likes his veggies. đŸ™‚

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

This is a super easy to whip together recipe to go great with dinner. I love to make these when I don’t have the time to make homemade rolls or bread.

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

½ cup butter

1/8 cup dried chives

1 tsp minced garlic

1 ¾ cups milk

3 cups baking mix

1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 16 muffin cups.

In a small sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add chives and garlic and cook for two minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for two minutes. Wisk in milk.

In medium bowl combine the baking mix and cheese. Add in the liquid mixture and stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon into muffin cups and bake for 25-30 minutes.

38 weeks

I was 38 weeks yesterday. I am so anxious for this baby to be born. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. The anticipation is killing me! At least with Christmas you know when it’s coming, but with babies you never know when they might decide to arrive.  It seems like the last week all I have been thinking about is this coming birth. I can’t wait to snuggle Myles in my arms and kiss his soft baby skin. Until then, I am trying to savor these last moments of pregnancy…feeling him move around inside of me…and enjoying uninterrupted sleep (well, except for those many nightly bathroom trips!).

Please keep us in your prayers as the time approaches quickly for Myles’  birth!
