Trying New Things

Last night (it was a quarter til midnight) I finished the ball for rock... note to self for next one... if free hand drawing pattern make narrow football shapes... if they are plump footballs you get a round ball... like this:
 But at least my lil monkey doesn't mind (and i don't either).... He was very happy to receive something mama made just for him.

I will just have to make sure my next football has narrow sides!

Rock learned to clap New Year's Eve... he now frequently stops just to clap his hands. He even did it a few times today during church... like during prayer, and the sermon :P

It is so much fun watching him try new things and even greater to see the joy he has when he accomplishes something by himself. Earlier today he walked with his walk/ride toy (with a little help). He also likes to push it while on his knees... it is really cute. See:

He hasn't figured out how to turn yet and the hallway is pretty short but i still absolutely love watching him!
(sorry for poor quality, it is a camera phone video)

I also made my own egg noodles for dinner tonight. That is the first time i have ever made my own noodles... I am excited that they were so tasty and i can have noodles anytime... I'm a noodle-fanatic :P

I used a really simple recipe from http://www.allrecipes.com/ (sorry don't have exact link to recipe)
It was:

   Homemade Egg noodles

   Ingredients:
   2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
   1 pinch salt
   2 eggs, beaten
   1/2 cup milk
   1 tablespoon butter

   Directions: In a large bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Add the beaten egg, milk, and butter. Knead dough until smooth, about 5 minutes. Let rest in a covered bowl for 10 minutes. On a floured surface, roll out to 1/8 or 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired lengths and shapes.
   Allow to air dry before cooking.

I was moving recipes i was wanting to try to a word document and decided i NEEDED to try this one now! I'm glad i did.

Only 9 more days till i no longer have internet at home.

But don't let it faze you. Stick with what you learned and believed,
sure of the integrity of your teachers—why, you took in the
sacred Scriptures with your mother's milk!
There's nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way
 to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—
showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God's way.
Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.
2 Timothy 3:14-17 (The Message)
