Don't kids make FHE so much fun?
Now don't kids add a whole new`dimension to Family Home Evening? Instead of our usual dull study and whatever- we actually started with a song (it happened to be Popcorn as that we are informed is one of our house guest's favourites) then we all participated in a simple - but prepared- lesson and then we had the best fun creating these little beauties below.
We used malt biscuits sandwiched together with icing made from a stiffly beaten egg white with 1 and a half cups of icing sugar beaten into it. They were then decorated with an array of lollies.
I've spent three quarters (maybe more) of a lifetime learning stuff; trying to get wise about how to be a great mum, trying to remember that my body is the temple of my soul so I should be careful about what I put into it, trying to harness my thoughts to keep them confined to uplifting and enriching stuff and looking for the humour of it all along the way. Of the battles - I win a few, I loose a few and here's where I ramble about the journey.
Most noteable achievement: Raising 3 terrific kids who have all turned into contributing adults and so far produced 2 adorable grandchildren to enrich and bring delight to my life.
Current BIG Goal: Lose 40kg
