Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Ethan, Carissa, and Alli. Our niece, Alli, is our newest Cookie Baking Night member. She turned 3 years old last week and has now officially joined us. Tonight we made cranberry/white chip/oatmeal cookies.
It has been a long time since we've needed to use some kind of step stool for hand washing, but we brought it out again tonight (as you can see, Carissa was a great helper).
We also continued reading from "God's Names" by Sally Michael. Tonight we learned about God's name: A Strong Tower. Proverbs 18:10 tells us: "The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe." We even learned a song that will help us remember that verse.
We finished the evening by teaching Alli the game "Zingo" (a matching game along the lines of Bingo but with picture shapes). Alli caught onto it quickly and seemed to enjoy it. If you don't have this game in your game closet, I suggest adding it to your collection. It's recommended for ages 4-8 (on the box) but the younger ones can play it without any problem, and the older ones haven't tired of it yet.
As usual, a fun time was had by all.
