Pies and my favorite topic... random stuff ;D

Here is what I've been doing today... BAKING! I made a lemon meringue pie and an apple pie. Right now, pies are my thing ;). When they don't turn out I HaVe to make another and 'beat' the bad one. I've made two batches of apple pies and the one I made today was the best. I have pictures of my other ones... someday I'll post those. So here is the lemon meringue one...

...and the apple pie one. Oh, these aren't 'my' pies. I got all these pictures off of Google. They are close though ;)

But, every girl knows that after cooking comes the hardest part of all... cleaning up! I don't know about y'all, but I make a horrendous mess when I cook. I am getting better (maybe ::).

Yesterday, we did our regular shopping: Walmart (or HEB) and Costco. In Walmart, Mama and I split to get our stuff so that things would go a little faster. I also took Grace along. Well, Grace had her purse with her and wanted to put the purse in the cart. I told her to hold her purse. And, like a little kid, Grace asked, "Why???". My answer? "Someone might steal it." OK, I guess that wasn't exactly the truth, but it can happen. So, Grace, being a very imaginative little girl, says, "D_____ is going to come steal my purse (don't ask me where she gets her ideas! Not from me, honest *rolls eyes*)!!" We have two D____'s in our church so I asked, "Which one?" And in the cutest voice Grace replied, "The Brian one (Brian is D__'s brother)." LOL!!

To all of the Mom's out there... HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! Mothers are such a blessing!

For Mother's Day we made a breakfast and then, this evening, we ate apple pie. The food was good the fellowship was encouraging... I hope y'all have as good (or better!! ;) of a Mother's Day as my family did. Until next time...

I wish I was a baker or even a cook, but sadly I don't have those skills down, yet. I can fend for myself with microwave easy stuff, but as far as true cooking I'm lost. I would love a piece of your apple pie right now!
Hope you, your family, & your mom especially have a great Mother's Day!
Love From Your Sister in Christ,
