I can't wait...its 2008!

OK...so Trina came up with that little ditty. :)

Let me tell you...yesterday held a momentous occasion for me. After 1 1/2 years (6 months of hard work...7 months of freaking out...and 5 months of working hard again), I finished my packet for becoming a certified Lactation Educator. Right on time for what I promised my bosses, and whew! I'm so glad its done. I consider myself a Lactation Educator already, but once they grade it and as long as I pass, I'll be certified, so that is a great relief! Thanks to all of you who prayed for me during this time.

Last night was nice. Instead of feeling sad that we didn't have plans, I was glad. I just wanted to be home with my man. Roger bought a word search game you can play head-to-head, so we played for a while. We rented The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy and enjoyed it...then toasted with some Martinelli's after midnight came.

This morning we went to the Original Pancake House for Breakfast, and I got a Dutch Baby. It was so yummy....takes me back to when Mom used to make those for me. It take a little longer to make, but I highly reccommend it. They serve it with lemon wedges, powdered sugar, and butter. I tried those. The sugar wasn't bad, but I'm glad I asked for some jam. That's how I like mine. Roger had some of mine with syrup, which is also good.

Now that I'm done with my CLE packet, I am looking forward to reading the book I got for Christmas. And taking down Christmas decorations, and getting our home back in order.

May your year be filled with the blessings of life, love, peace and joy through Jesus Christ our Lord!

HOORAY!!! I'm so happy to hear the CLE packet is FINISHED. Praise God!

I am a bit ashamed to say that i don't know what a "Dutch Baby" is, other than an infant in Amsterdam. And i certainly hope THEY'RE not served with lemon wedges, powdered sugar, and butter...

Here's a small bit of info from Wikipedia. Considering its tie to the Penn Dutch, I'm surprised you haven't heard about them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_baby_pancake

Those look a lot like something I used to make most mornings when we were first married! They're really easy to make!

6 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 cube margarine, melted

Mix and beat well, eggs, flour, and milk. Melt 1 cube margarine on cookie sheet or dripper pan. Pour mix into pan. Bake at 450 until lightly browned and bubbly, about 15 minutes. Serve with syrup or jam.

I used to have these cute corning ware individual baking cups that I made them in. It was a lot of fun.

I'm a friend of Cindy(Mind Full of Bedlam). I just wanted to say congrats on the CLE completion. I'm a breastfeeding mom myself and have a great appreciation for your line of work. I know so many women need help from people like you in order to stick it out with breatfeeding. I'm lucky to have great support from my mom, and doula.
