Taylor's Christmas present from his Pop was a year of guitar lessons... and tonight was his first lesson... of course I had to feed him and his mom....( we had hotdogs) , and what good is visiting MeMe & Pop's house if you can't have a bit of board game time? I picked this game up for a buck at the flea market.... still new in the box... I remembered it from when I was a child..
I am happy to say... I still got it! Yep, I won a game and Pop won a game...no "just letting the kid win" around here ...~seriously~ we had a bunch of fun, as always when Kristy and Taylor come to visit.
..and what would MeMe's house be without cookies???
I tried a new recipe.. Amish Cookies...from the Pennsylvania Dutch Cookbook Almost every recipe I try from this book is a keeper, and much like the ones my own Pennsylvania Great Grandmother use to cook... I was sad that these cookies were just so-so.. They are a molasses cookie with oatmeal...not sure if it was me or the recipe. Nonetheless, I recommend the book
I managed both my Bible reading ( Gen 13-15 & Matt 5: 1-26) and a couple more chapters in Mourning Glora and Gathering Days.
Day 5 cross stitch is Henry the Nutcracker
..and here's what I managed today
I have time on this one as it will be a Christmas present for my DIL 2012...
I'm off to work on my ripple a bit before turning in for the evening. Tomorrow is a work day for us
