The Sweetest Gift

Noelle's footprints 9-23

Welcome to the world sweet baby girl Noelle Elizabeth. ♥

Born in the evening on September 23rd via emergency C-section after 32 hours of labor, our daughter is truly a miracle in every sense of the word.

Noelle 10-1

We simply couldn’t be more thankful for Noelle’s arrival and health. Jude and Franklin are proud and very protective big brothers! Jude doesn’t leave her side. 🙂

Please enjoy all the new recipes in Sally’s Cookie Addiction and on my blog as I recover from surgery and begin new life as a mommy.

I now know a love like I’ve never known before.

Thank you for all the well wishes!

  11. Hello, your recipe for the brown sugar pound cake in your cookbook calls for 1 cup of vegetable oil. That seems like a lot and my cake wasn’t right so I was wondering if his was a misprint. And I have a Noelle as well!
