Cookies and Mum!

Ive had a hundred and one things to get done today, and yet i was still able to find the time to bake these delicious Honey and Raisin Oatmeal cookies! ..And thats because they are honestly the easiest but tastiest cookies ever! Dave and Shalev just gobble these up in no time... example; i baked the last batch on Saturday and on Sunday night i had 1 left in the cookie jar. hmmm. Mum is arriving tonight so just had to have a few more in the jar for our cup 'o' tea breaks together! Havent seen mum since this time last year! SO it will be such a blessing having her here again.
Recipe below...




Honey and Raisin Oatmeal Cookies:
3 Tbsp butter- room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1 Tbsp water
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 rolled oats
Raisins or any dried fruit
Preheat oven to 180.C. Grease tray.
Beat together butter, brown sugar, honey, egg and water thoroughly. Sift dry ingredients, then stir in the oats. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix. Add dried fruit.
Drop heaping teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake 12 minutes. Cool on wire rack!

Uncle Matty and Aunty Nic are here!!

Yippee! Amy's brother Matt and his wife Nic are here in the land! It's now been just over a week since they have arrived. We've been able to celebrate Rosh ha Shanah with them, and even made it up to Jerusalem for a few days. We have another 3 weeks with them so there is much more fun to be had!


Here are just a few pics of their first day with us...

He's walking!!!

I dont have any photos to prove it, but our son is now officially a walker! He took his first steps about 2 weeks ago, but only in this last week have we seen him go from being a wobbly 2 stepper to a pro walker. "Yippee" says mummy!! I am EVER so grateful for this new stepping stone in his life... i was actually beginning to dread having two non-walking babies to care for. So Thank you Lord!

well thats all from us. and sorry again that there are no photos (as of yet) to show you all.

water for the grass... and a bath, all in one!

As we are right now going through a terrible water shortage here in the Land, we found a great solution to watering the grass and giving Shalev a bath, all in one... He did a great job! and as we only water our grass every 3 or 4 days (because of the shortage) we were very happy to let him do it for us.
take a look at these cute pics..
