Making Memories

Today was a wonderful day...Sunday morning at Maranatha...then Edster, me, and Noah (my oldest grandson) left there and succumbed to a donut stop at Jubilee's (Hey...it's a holiday weekend, okay?).

Noah had been with us since Saturday and we were going to live in the moment!



I know these look like donuts...but they are really hips in the larva stage.



But we had to stop at Jubilee's...



And Noah had to have chocolate sprinkles...



Once at Mamaw's, he said, "Mamaw, NOW may I please have a donut?"



Obviously, Mamaw said yes...



And he was in heaven...



Savoring each bite...



Your humble correspondent (aka Mamaw) broke down and ate this big old gut log...Edster ate apple fritters.



And then Noah was on #2...



And milk was Noah's drink of choice!



Then it was down to business.  Time to roll up our sleeves and make Acorn Cookies.



Melting the bottom of a plain Hershey's kiss on our pizza stone that had been heated...



And pressing it on top of a mini nutter butter peanut butter cookie...



Like this...



Noah was great at unwrapping the kisses...



He had it down to a science...



Then you do the same with a milk chocolate chip for the other end...



And wallah...(as Kim would say) there you have it...



Over and over again...



Good enough to eat...



Two with a cuppa coffee...MY drink of choice...

Oh...from hearing Pastor Craig preach from Hebrews to Jubilee donuts to time with Noah making memories and an extra day at home with my Edster this weekend....how God's mercies were flowing today!

With gratitude,

  8. Hello, I've come across your blog from Kim Klassen's Beyond Layers class (I'm Loafalola over there). Your images are beautiful. What a wonderful way to spend time with your grandson. I know what I'll be doing with my two youngest children...they'll love it...acorn cookies! And, also, your images have really inspired me. I rather lost my photography creative urge way back in May when my oldest daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I've been perusing the BL flicker stream this morning before getting ready for church and seeing so many lovely images (many of them yours) has re-kindled my creative urge. So, thank you so much for lovely photos and a lovely blog.
