This is what I received in the mail last week. It was a Cajun gift basket from my friend Tiany. She has an awesome blog about raising four sons, serving the Lord, and homeschooling. Go read her blog and be prepared to be inspired!
A while ago she was trying to figure out a name for her fourth son that was on the way. So she held a contest and I won! Little Noah! I love that name, and we even considered it for one of our sons, but finding a name that everyone in the house agreed on, was more exhausting than once thought. There are so many opinions in our house. It used to be so simple. I would choose a name and Den would have to agree. Well, that's not true. I would run it by family members, and some close friends too, but now my own children will disagree.....hehehe
So, when this basket arrived it gathered quite a crowd. It was full of creole and Cajun goodies. The one who really ran with it was Den. He was ready to race down to the grocery store and buy some shrimp for some jambalaya. So we did. To be honest, the basket is very empty now. The only thing remaining is some of the cajun seasoning and fish coating , however that is only a matter of time before it's all gone too.
I was going to post pictures of me preparing a beautiful Cajun meal, but that was just a pipe dream, like so many others....lol. I guess I could have taken pictures of shrimp tails sticking out of everyone's mouths, but that too would have been a photo blur!
However, thank you Tiany for thinking of us. I know how crazy busy you are with those four gorgeous boys.
