Favorite Things

I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I am using this year to help me study God's word.

The first being the Scripture Reading Plan I am using provided by the Journey church. I like it because if you get behind it is easy to get caught up. :)

The second is what I am using to help me memorize verses. I have always wanted to memorize Philippians and shared that desire with my husband. He directed me to this site which has a VERY helpful guide to memorizing Philippians!

Rr Bag

Each week at school Emma had a letter bag that they decorated on Monday's with something that begins with the letter of the week. During the week, at home, we would fill the letter bag with certain things that begin with that letter. I took a picture of the "Rr" bag becuase I thought it was cute how Emma chose to decorate hers by tracing the letters in ribbon. :)

I had to document my first time french braiding Emma's hair. I'd say it was pretty successful. :)

Snowman Princess

Emma had to design a snowman for school. So she wanted to make a princess....we got inventive using things around the house. :)
First she cut out the three circles all on her own (which she can't see good since they are covered up). She did a great job. Then she asked me to cut a dress out (which I did a terrible job of). She added foam stickers, we cut out silver foil shoes, and crown, made arms and hands, gave her some earrings. Emma glued on the eyes, nose, mouth, wand and hair.

Good Gravy, It's Chocolate!

So, one night, I decided we would have breakfast for dinner and decided to make some chocolate gravy. Let me ust say, it was DELICIOUS! We LOVED it! :) The recipe is below.

Chocolate Gravy
  • 1/3 stick of butter
  • 2/3 c of sugar
  • 2T all purpose flour
  • 1/3 c cocoa
  • 2c whole milk
Heat butter in a castiron skillet over low heat. Mix in sugar, cocoa and flour. Slowly poor 1c milk into the skillet and whisk well to remove lumps. Whisk in remaining milk, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick, being careful not to scorch. Serve hot over biscuits.
