You Light Up My Life

Matt & Echo, I decided that I really wanted a porch light that had a motion sensor in it, so here is the one that I exchanged the flood lights for. Although, I think I will eventually get a motion sensor light for that flood light too because it is really dark here with no street lights and those big dark trees hiding the moon. I love this porch light though. I hope you like it as much as I do. I know you are probably still playing Wii and won't even see this for months, so I'll call you and tell you to check it out, and you better do it. Remember Wii is good, but it's not best.
Ryan and Becca, I took my lights back to Home Depot and traded them for the ones in this picture. At first I loved the other lights. They really were perfect, but then I could tell that they might stick out too far and people might bump their heads on them, especially kids (especially wrestling boys) so I got the ones that fit up against the wall. They are perfect and give off just the right amount of light for reading and knitting. I wanted you to see what they look like, so check them out. I hope you like them.
Last night I made these yummy cookies for my RS lesson today. I always bring treats to the sisters and they love it. This recipe was really easy and yummy. I got it on the net. Try them. They don't take a lot of time and they are really good. Have fun.
