Meaningful Advent Fun

My husband and I are currently planning an Advent Event for our church entitled "24 Reasons to Celebrate Jesus." He is the part-time pastor of Family Life and has been working on events to bring the church family together. At this event we will be providing 24 ornaments and a devotional for each family for $10, with a soup supper. Some of the ornaments will be ready-made, and some will be embellished or created at the event. I will post more as the items come together. The ornaments focus on a characteristic or name of God, which can be tricky to come up with ideas for! I am down to trying to find two more ornament ideas...any ideas for: God with us, or Counselor???

2 - Cups Bisquick

Cream the cream cheese and sugar; add in bananas one at a time; add in eggs one at a time; add in Bisquick until moist. Place in bread pan and bake at 350 for approximately 1 hour (60 min). Wonderful warm with a cup of hot cocoa. Enjoy!

Hello! Hello!

Good Afternoon Everyone! I think I am back to blogging after a looooooooong break. This little joy of joys has been keeping me busy, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! I waited a long 4 years for her and am so thankful to have the opportunity to mother a newborn again...OK she's two months old now...but that's still pretty new. Don't you just love that smile when they're sleeping. I think she is dreaming of her thumbs that she has kept out just in case she needs them. Big brother and sister have fallen back into their routine and all is well in Central PA. Come back for new posts soon on mouth watering recipes and food for thought too!
