Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Carissa, Emily, and Ethan. We made red velvet cupcakes (highly decorated as you can see from the picture) with the filled cupcake pan Jon (Ethan and Carissa's dad) gave me for Christmas. Needless to say, they had a great time with this project.
We also played air hockey and Zingo and read from Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Schoolland.
Tonight's lesson from Leading Little Ones to God was lesson 62 titled "God's Children Tell God's Story" describing the passage where Jesus told his disciples, "Come and follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." We talked about what that means, and one of the questions at the end of the lesson was "How can we be 'fishers of men'?" Emily said, "We could go to parades and pass out gospel tracts and if it's a Halloween parade you could wear a Superman shirt to be festive" OR "You could have a bunch of kids over to your house and do fun things with them, maybe bake some cookies, and teach them Bible lessons." OR "You could invite them to Vacation Bible School at your church." (Hmmmm. Those ideas sound very familiar.) I told Emily, "I'll have to try that sometime."
We had a month break from Cookie Baking Night due to a weather cancellation last time. It was good to have them back. As usual, a fun time was had by all.
