Pumpkin Muffins

I made up this recipe a few years ago. Since I baked some today with the squash that we froze in October, I thought I would share it with you to enjoy:
Pumpkin Muffins
3 c. flour (or 2 c. flour plus 1 c. whole wheat flour)
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 eggs
1 3/4 or 2 c. sugar
2 c. cooked or canned pumpkin or squash
1 c. oil
1/2 - 1 c. raisins, optional
In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spray a 12 muffin tin with no-stick spray or grease it by hand. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full with batter. Sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar or plain sugar. Bake 375 degrees Fahrenheit 15-20 minutes or till golden brown.

My baby is in a bed.

Time is going by too quickly. Amy is out of a crib! We found this toddler bed on craigslist, and picked it up today. I am having surgery Mar. 1 and will not be able to lift things for about a month, so I had to do something to help Amy get in and out of bed on her own. God provided this bed for only $35. So, here she is. Let the games begin!

This book, "The Discipline of Grace" by Jerry Bridges, has been an instrument to help change my life. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. It is Gospel-packed and is helping me to combat legalism.
