28 - August, 2011
We were excited to meet Laura's friend who is a boy - o.kay, let's just call him her boyfriend. . . Ben!! We served them taco's for lunch, then had some cookies that Laura made, then took a walk in a cemetary near our house. When we got back home we reviewed the sermon and had some more cookies before the two headed out to the Arboretum.
The rest of the week went zooming by with friends visiting, a dentist appointment, lunch and fellowship with more friends, Drew and Cob visiting Grandma and Pa, a date night . . . before you know it a new week began.

Today Abi and I made her b-day cake in the AM, then in the afternoon we made Turkish Delight. Abi put a lot of time and thought into her 10th birthday celebration which will be held tomorrow from 2 to 4. We made the Turkish Delight to go along with the whole Narnia theme she has planned. She wanted each guest to take home enough Turkish Delight to share with her family. I had no idea what work candy making was (is)! First we mixed water, sugar and lemon juice, brought that to soft ball on the candy thermometer. When it was 15 degrees away from soft ball (which is 240) you start mixing together corn starch, cream of tartar and water, then bring that to a boil. It looked and felt like glue!
