Adam's Birthday party

This evening, we went to my mom and dad's place to celebrate Adam's birthday. He will be 31 this week!

Hannah helped Grandma Lois set the table. Grandma Lois had made fall napkins, taping pressed fall leaves to the napkins.

We had waffles - waffles with egg and sausage links or

waffles with whipped cream and fruit

or both!

Sophia said "Yum spells yum-enade."

After dinner, it was time for the birthday pie (we often like to have birthday pie instead of the traditional birthday cake).

Jill made Reece's Pie for Adam.

This is the Reece's Pie recipe. I combined a couple different recipes and came up with this several years ago:

#1 layer - Mix small box of instant chocolate pudding mix per pie filling instructions on the box. (or you could make a chocolate pie filling from scratch too) Spread on the bottom of 2 graham cracker pie shells.

#2 layer -
Mix together 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter (or crunchy which is what I prefer)
1 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
Fold in 2 cups Cool whip (or whip 1 c. heavy cream)
Divide this mixture between the 2 pie shells on top of the chocolate layer.

#3 layer-
Top with more Cool whip or whipped cream. Add broken Reece's peanut butter cups. Drizzle in criss-cross fashion over candy with either melted chocolate chips or chocolate flavored ice-cream shell topping that hardens.

When I take this to any potlucks, I never come home with leftovers (maybe that isn't a good thing?) People rave over it. Since it makes 2 pies at once, sometimes I make one for the family and take the 2nd to a neighbor or friend.

Hannah: "Which one will you open first? The beautifullest? (which is mine, of course!)"

Eenie, meenie, minie, moe

Sophia: "We wrapped it so you can't see it is a video!"

Hannah: "It might be another shirt. Ok. It is!"

Time for a show!
The girls sang John 3:16 for us.

Then recited Psalm 1

Animal charades



(a bunny!)
Name That Tune

A fun party!
Happy Birthday, son-in-law!
We love you very much!!!
