Another year, another Halloween. I guess since they are getting a little older, Andrew and Matthew were particularly excited about Halloween this year. Lisa bought a few decorations and put them up. For one of our Family Home Evening activities we made a haunted gingerbread house. Andrew got to wear his costume to school on […]

Last night while Andrea, Andrew and Matthew carved a couple of pumpkins (pictures of that later), Julia and I made donut balls. I had a recipe around for a while that I wanted to try. Our first couple burned the second we put them in the oil. I guess it was too hot 🙂 We […]

No, that’s not the score of a game from last night’s Family Home Evening. It’s how many cinnamon rolls we all ate (Andrea left before they were done in the oven).

On Monday for Family Home Evening I taught a lesson on the creation. Each of us drew one of the “days” of the creation and then I summarized the story of the creation from Genesis. We tried to explain to Andrew that it was like following a recipe… there were different steps involved. Then we […]

Monday night brought Family Home Evening. Julia bought pizza for dinner, Andrea and Mandy bought refreshments, Lisa taught a lesson on the vision of the tree of life. We need to hold to the rod… or to the jute (that’s what she had tied across the entrance way). I was in charge of an activity, […]

As much as I love the banner that Jason created for Dad’s birthday, I feel that the writing would be better suited in the middle or left side so as not to block my face. I haven’t been that cute for quite awhile and would hate to see my early years forgotten. Sorry it’s taken […]
