Today was the monthly Keepers at Home meeting which I try to go along and help out at when I can. This month we had the opportunity to learn about cake decorating from Jenny's sister Patti. Jenny, Patti, and I had baked several batches of little cakes the day before -- all ready for the girls to try their hand at decorating. I was chosen as "official photographer" for the day (and babysitter:-) so the picture at left is of me with my camera taken by our hostess, Kara. She, with her husband, opened up their home not only to us, but to the church's group for boys, Contenders of the Faith, as well. The guys met in the front yard (see some pictures further down in this post), then we all got together at the end for cake and some time for the adults to visit, and children to play. We had a fun time together!
Cousins in the van ready to leave. There are no words to describe our van trip, 11 children, 2 moms, 1 grandmother, and me, curvy country roads, lots of noise, and carsickness....yet in the midst of all that I was thinking, someday we'll look back on this as "the good old days!"
Contenders of the Faith meeting
Everyone -Keepers and Contenders - got together for cake at the end...and this is the last of the pictures because I was too busy helping little ones eat to take anymore:-)
