Another Weekend


Another weekend is upon us and to be honest I can't wait.  It has been a long week.  We have had sick kiddos here at our house.  Roman has the stomach flu.  Avery has a cold that just won't go away, and Addy has a yeast infection and pink eye.  On top of that, my husband was out of town two days this week which makes his 4th or 5th trip since the beginning of this year.  Roman had a normal routine visit to the cardiologist that left us scheduling a cath procedure to balloon open his pulmonary valve.  We have known since his surgery at 3 months old that his pulmonary valve was narrowed and that it was just a matter of time until he would need additional intervention; however, that doesn't make it any easier to hear news that his left side of his heart isn't getting the same amount of blood as the right and if we leave it his left side of his heart will only become weaker.  The only silver lining to this news is that we aren't talking about a replacement of this valve at this point.  I can barely express how much I love this child.  He is the sweetest child on the planet, and has brought so much joy to our family.  Last weekend we made some Applesauce muffins.  They were so good.

Applesauce Muffins
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cups applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 3/4 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Combine all dry ingredients and combine all wet ingredients.  Then mix the two together.  Bake at 350 degrees.until golden brown.  Then dip the muffins in 1/4 cup melted butter and then into combined 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.  Enjoy!
