We decided we needed to celebrate the return of Spring in a big way! So Chris, Christopher, Daniel, Taylor , Kristy and I decided a weenie roast was in order.
The weather was perfect hovering in the 70s with sunshine ( after just the right amount of rainy starts to water the plants)...
Taylor's job was to find everyone just the right roasting stick for the hotdogs...
After filling up on hotdogs, slaw, and chips, Taylor raided MeME's craft basket for some feathers and rubberbands to turn his roasting stick into a spear. Pop just happened to have some targets around for him to practice on!
We are firm believers in making young men to be warriors, protectors of women, self sufficient and independant..... never too young to start.
Taylor had a blast....and after getting tired of climbing trees and throwing spears, Uncle Christopher made ice cream cones! A wonderful way to usher in Spring!
All your sons will be taught by the LORD, and great will be your children's peace. Isaiah 54:13
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.
