~School 's in Session~

We are not for sure exactly when we will head back to Argentina.  
Our times (and our tickets =), and Abigail's passport are in God's hands!
However, Lord willing... we should be heading to Argentina sometime before Dec. 27th.
On the way to Argentina we will have a week or so stop off in Colombia to keep our Colombian residency visas valid.
Please pray that God's Will be worked out in when we go back.
(In the mean time, we are enjoying our U.S.A. Family/Friends/and Home! :-)

School DAZE!  =)
What with having a new baby girl in our home, and with working HOURS on the 3rd floor to help the girls get moved up there...I decided that we could start our school year a tad late.  =)
Besides, I knew we could catch up when we get to Argentina.  For...When we are on the mission field we have a lot less family, and activities , (which We MISS!) so the kids get LOTS more school work done on the mission field. =)
So saying the above...our first day of school was Monday, Oct. 13th.
~I made these fun "breakfast take-along cookies" from the Hobe Sound cookbook, and boiled eggs, and Daddy made us some Chinese green tea to drink for our School morning breakfast.~
 ~So yummy!  with shredded cheese and bacon in them.~
 ~Earlier I had purchased some big erasers and pencils to give to the kids for their first school day.~
 ~One eraser said, "oops!" Another said, "My Bad", and yet another said, "Not again!"  =D~
 ~This year is Elijah's first year of school.  He is in kindergarten.  I had told Mary that she could listen in...and then we got to thinking that she's probably ready for school too.
So, Both Elijah and Mary started Kindergarten this year!
They are excited and love studying together.  They are best buds and are together ALL THE TIME!~
 ~Mommy's precious Mary!
I loved little Mary's tights and boots.~
 ~Aunt Laura loaned us these cute little desks for them to use.~
 ~Mommy's SWEET Elijah~
 ~For lunch we had brown buttered noodles with shredded chicken in them, a fresh veggie tray, and then I made these YUMMY cupcakes for our dessert!~
 ~I was looking on line for a MOIST chocolate cake recipe...and my search is over!
This cupcake recipe is to die for! 
Sooo super moist.
I know it's NOT Friday...but I'm going to post this as a Fun Food Friday. (For with a new baby... I can only blog...when I can blog. :-}

I DID NOT use her icing recipe, here's the recipe I used.

~Mocha Filling/Icing~
Taste Of Home
Cook together on stove top stirring constantly til thick:
5 T. flour in 1 cup of milk!  LET COOL!
Cream together with mixer:
1 cup sugar, 1 cup butter, 1 t. vanilla, 1 T. instant coffee, 2 t. cocoa, and cooled mixture.
Beat WELL...for at least 5 mins. to avoid your sugar being gritty.~
 ~These cupcakes were so melt-in-your-mouth delish that one could swoon eatin' them! =) ~
 ~For fun I added a colorful paper straw to some and Reeses candy bar pieces to others.~
 ~Here's a picture of the people...students/staff of our school house! =)  
Principal Daddy,
Teacher Mommy, and...
Kimberly 11th grade,
Sarah 8th grade,
Noah 5th grade,
Elijah and Mary kindergarten, and ...
 ~Mommy and her T.W.O. precious kindergarten students!
They are so excited and eager to learn.  (And patient with Mommy and she stops to feed, change, rock, etc. baby Abigail! ;-) ~
 ~Just one more glimpse of these TO-DIE-FOR cupcakes.
(and if you make these...and you don't nearly faint, just know that you and I have different taste buds.  =) Hee!  Hee!  =)
