Maybe the best part of the gift is that we left the children at home. They were all at our house.
Here we all are , with our spouses.
This video shows the routine that our family goes through to feed our puppy. We have worked hard to avoid 'bad' behaviors like begging, and jumping up on people, or even growling and snapping when someone messes with his food. He has learned to wait to start eating until he is given the sign. Can you figure out what the sign is? Notice that Michelle, who made this video, was able to take pictures and mess with his food dish while he was eating. Our dog has a quite a few bad habits, if you want to know them all ask Mr. Boots, he is frequently griping about them. The children did do well on this part of his training.
The above video shows our secret hole digging weapon. Fortunately for us, he likes to dig for and eat worms. Getting him to dig in the right spot is the challenge.
Each morning Daddy and I arrived at Grandpa and Grandma's shortly before 9 A.M. The first morning Grandma and I went over to the base to attend a ladies prayer meeting, wash some clothes, and have a computer lesson. Grandpa is resolute in his determination to stand against the flood of technology. Grandma is learning what she can and is doing quite well. While we were gone Daddy and Grandpa worked on spraying the weeds and fixing the swamp cooler.
The second morning I trimmed Grandma's hair. I was a little nervous, but it came out okay.
Grandma has a big heart for those in need. She showed this to me by the conversations she had with various people on the base. Throughout our visit she shared stories of goings on in the town as well as from her past. It made me think, "How much do I love and care for others? Do I love them enough to share the gospel with them?"
The above link she answers a lot of questions. Her recipe makes a smaller amount.Note: this is not an original recipe. My Aunt Miriam got it from somewhere (off the Internet?). We have run across several different blogs that have this or a similar recipe.
