Friday Night with Mom!

Friday, February 24th, 2012

I came home today expecting it to be like other Friday nights, but when I came home today I could tell that this would be a different evening. Maddie had been invited to a last minute sleep-over next door and Amelia went with Maddie straight after school, believing that she too would have a sleep-over. I knew she would be sad leaving the “big girl” party so I went to action and thought of the ultimate bribery to get Meelie to come home willingly… are you ready for this?

Cherry Ice Box Pie!!!

My mom made this with me all of the time when I was a little girl and I thought it was high time that Amelia experienced the fun of making this ultra-sweet pie. It worked… she left Maddie who was a bit green with envy with the knowledge of our future pie-baking escapades.

Amelia was the perfect mixer with the whipped cream and held those beaters up for a long time to make the whipped cream peak. She folded in the cream cheese/powered sugar mixture perfectly and all was well until I got the prepared Graham Cracker crust out of the cupboard.

“What’s this mommy?”


“What was that mommy?”

She was then able to experience the joys of making a homemade graham cracker crust!

Well done Amelia Mabel! The pie looks delicious! Now let’s put it in the icebox so that it’s perfect for your pizza making party with daddy tonight!

Tucson in the Summer

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

We headed to Tucson to visit Grandma Dotty for a week over the summer.  There is a lot to do in Tucson but when you visit in the summer, nearly every activity ends with a dip in the pool… for several hours at a time! :)  Meelie had fun and actually learned to swim by herself (with floaties of course)!  She quickly discovered that she didn’t mind that much when she actually went under the surface of the water after she jumped into the pool.  This is a trait that is the exact opposite of her sister! :)  Amelia is a fish and I suspect that we’ll have to watch her like a hawk around the water for many years to come! :)

She had a great time at Grandma Dotty’s house.  The read books, made cakes and swam… a lot!  Thanks for the visit!
