our farm is NEVER the same when our grandkids are here for Grammie and Poppa Camp! Memories are made that none of us will ever forget! After Thanksgiving dinner they stay for the weekend. We love having them. So far the boys have started to take the roof off off the front of the house.. It was damaged by a horrible ice storm years ago. The boys had so much fun giggling and chattering. They punched the roof with whatever they could find....... all boys!
Our granddaughter Ellie made this dessert for us. It was very very good......saving it for next fall. Here is the recipe Pumpkin better than.............cake.
In the morning we had Bible time....that chatter that goes on at this time is priceless! Then Vitaliy asked about satan. Poppa explained how he was created as an Angel and rebelled against God. Then we talked about the importance in reading the Word of God, so you would be able to stand against the temptations the enemy sends our way. We also talked about how when we don't read the Word we will get weak. It was precious to hear everything they had to say. Ian said that if we don't read the Word satan has an easier target. Amazing......if we let them talk...and they have been in the Word......they have much to share also!
Here are the verses Poppa taught from.
The Son (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Collosians 1:15-20
Today the boys are working on their fort...digging holes for the poles...and putting up the floor........they are so excited!!!!!! Ellie and our girls are decorating and cleaning the house........thanking the Lord for all His gifts!
Enjoying our last few days at home......it has been the best vacation!
