I know I gush often about our Keepers At Home Group, but it really is a wonderful thing! Yesterday we took a break from “practical” stuff to party!
Each of the girls was asked to prepare a dish and bring the recipe. (We’re putting the recipes together in a little booklet for them.) After reading the Christmas story together and snacking on the delicious goodies, each of the moms had prepared a fun game.
Besides a rather unfortunate incident with the girls’ brothers who were playing outside with stick swords, the day was great fun. Yes, Caleb was involved, but it really was an accident. Hopefully, a bit more ice and a little more time will heal the giant goose egg under the other boy’s eye. Caleb was very worried about him and didn’t think twice about apologizing. (Hey, that’s a pretty big step for him!) Here’s what I overheard Caleb say after ice had been on the goose egg for about 20 minutes….”Can you open your eye? How many fingers am I holding up?” T, if you’re reading this – we hope your eye is better!
Anyway, back to the party. Mahayla prepared a very yummy cheesball and Caleb made a chocolate fondue with marshmallows for dipping.
I missed out on most of the games because of the unfortunate incident, but here’s a picture from the gift wrapping relay.
We’re officially on Christmas break! I had planned to school lightly through Friday, but sometimes life just calls for a change of plans. 🙂 Merry Christmas!
