A train has hit me. Whatever the bug was that my dad had has transferred to me a little. It's a throat and head thing. Yuck.
Anyway, I put some pictures from my mom's card onto the computer, so I can write about them.

Here we go!

Last night, Kelli left for a youth retreat over the weekend. I decided I wanted to make something and to keep Evan out of my hair, I asked him if he wanted to help. He was actually really excited about it, even more than I expected. I decided to make Applesauce Muffins because they were really easy the first time I made them and I really liked them! They are from a cookbook my mom and her coworkers made in 1990 when she worked at the Capitol Records plant in Illinois.

Applesauce Muffins                                                                                          Mendy McGee
1/2 c. oil
1 c. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. applesauce (regular or cinnamon. I've tried both.)
1/2 tsp. nutmeg (the last time I made it I didn't have any so I dumped in some apple pie spice.)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice

Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well. Bake in muffin pans at 400ยบ for 15-20 minutes.

(Word of caution- You will want to use those muffin cups. If you try to butter the muffin tins, the butter will burn and the muffins will  still taste good, except for a thin crispy layer on the outside. Trust me, I know! :)

These things are super moist! I love 'em!

I don't know about you, but this is one of my favorite pictures possibly ever. I hardly ever get a good one of us together! We even match!

Moving right along. . .

Here are a few pictures from my concert a week ago.
Men, Men, Men, Men.

I'm the first one on the left in the middle.

That Saturday, along with my show choir competition, Kelli and my cousin Nathan had a solo/small group contest in Ogden.

Kelli's group. They got a 1-. (1+ is the highest). She's over there ↑
Nathan. He got a 1+. He's in 5th grade. My aunt Diane (his mom) accompanied him.
 Good job Kelli and Nathan!

A few other pictures. . .

Me and Kelli in her hammock.

A picture from this summer at Big Creek State Park. I was playing with Picnik.

Me doing interesting things to Kelli's hair.

Dresses I made for girls in Haiti in Sept./ Oct.
My piano teacher, one of her boys, and me at the apple orchard in October. (Did I mention she's awesome?)

Well, it's getting late, so I'll stop. More later. Prayers for feeling better soon would definitely be appreciated!
