The Happy Day Project- time to change the world

  Dear Readers,
  I'm sure you've been wondering where I've been! Well, there have been tests to study for, little sisters turning six, a  Rapunzel birthday party, one amazing uncle's birthday, recitals, more tests-whew! What I'm trying to say is....we've been busy. In a wonderful, fun sense of the word, but still quite busy!
 I WANT to make another post on fall. I want to post pictures of Halloween and the amazing time we had as a family. I WANT to tell all about my little sissy's birthday week. I WANT to write a big, long post about the orphans in China because that is on my heart today.  I WANT to make a post asking for prayers for my brother. I WANT to tell you all about the amazing chance my the boys, Mom, and I have been given to possibly go to ARGENTINA with our high school ministry. But where is time??
  So- there is a quick peek into our life right now. I will keep you updated, I promise, but first I have to face a few tests this week. Then you won't be able to get rid of me!! Yes, we are hoping to go to Argentina, but need your prayers. Uncle Lenny has a graduation trip planned, and so we can only go to Argentina if it's before his trip.  I'm so so so so so excited, y'all. You know how much I love this kind of thing, and I just can hardly contain myself! I thought high school missions were out of reach for us. So every time we watched a video of last year's missions, I felt SO sad. But God is making it possible, Mom and Dad are making it possible, the high school ministry team is making it possible, and it is just the most exciting thing.
   But- the real reason I woke up early this morning, and am blogging when I could be doing a million other things, is that I had to make Amish Friendship Bread.  I've kept this starter going for a while, but now am ending up with no one to take the starter for a friend. So we are over flowing with bread every ten days!
   So last week Cate and I anonymously took some to the neighbors. And they straight away knew who it was from, dad gum. 
  BUT this time we are doing it a little differently. Have you heard of the Happy Day Project? We are, as of today, prarticipating in it. And the first step is to take a home made treat to your neighbors! Yay!
  Here is a step by step guide to what you need to do for the Happy Day project. It is really easy, really fun, and a wonderful way to spread the love of Christ.
How would you like to know you are making a difference in the world? This is a really easy way to do it. I challenge all of you to do it, no matter what is going on in your life right now! You will feel wonderful afterwards, and so will someone else. Ready, then? Let's change the world!! Your Blogger who is on her way to the neighbor's house,

 By the way...My mom found this idea from the blog Life Rearranged. Click the link and you can watch her progress,too. And what she said about the babana bread not being perfect is so true- my first batch of bread we took to the neighbors last week was horrible!! But they still loved it. So do it even if you can't bake!
