Tonight was the first Cookie Baking Night of 2011. In attendance this evening: Carissa and Ethan. We made 7 layer bars. Ethan and Carissa crushed the graham crackers (using a rolling pin) to make the crust. Then they layered the ingredients on top of the crust. You may be surprised to know, this is a very kid-friendly recipe. It has a lot of steps for them to do. I highly recommend it.
We continued to work through our book Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Schoolland. Tonight we read lesson 39 "Jesus Showed His Glory", and Ethan read from the Bible for us (great to have some reading helpers).
Then we played several exciting hands of Mickey Mouse Uno, most of which I lost. After about 6 hands, I won a round. At this unusual happening, Carissa exclaimed, "But Katrina you never win!" We were all surprised.
As usual, a fun time was had by all!
