Food, Family, Fun--Gratitude Challenge

It's that time of year again. . . .the Gratitude Challenge is back. It is hosted by Brenda over at Garden of Learning. The way the challenge works is to post each day (if you can!) in November something, anything, that you are grateful to God for. It can be something as precious as your salvation, or something whimsical like snowflakes and candy canes!! Some will post all 30 days; some will do a few days here or there. You can write a post, or you can post a picture.  .  .it's up to you; just head over to Garden of Learning to link up and meet other grateful bloggers! I'm sure we agree that we all have something to thank God for. Here we go. . .

I am thankful for "family time" moments that occur in my home.

Yesterday, I promised the kids that we would make Crispy Rice snacks in the shape of pumpkins. . .to remind us that God is Lord of the Harvest! Although He is spiritually Lord of the Harvest (Matthew 9:35-38), bringing us unto Himself, redeeming us to work for Him, I explained to the kiddos that He is also Lord of the Harvest, literally. All of the blessings of nourishment we receive is by the Hand of God. And during this season, we want to honor the Lord for the harvest He has provided.

Any way, we made these tasty treats and everyone found their way into the kitchen to help out in some way.
The idea for these yummies can be found HERE,
 from Mama Jen's blog.

All 5 of us were in the kitchen stirring, measuring, pouring, tasting, mixing, dipping, more tasting. :o) It was so much fun, especially since the guys (Husband and son) joined in! It wasn't planned that way; the girls and I were going to make them, but the more the merrier!!

Impromptu family time--a blessing!
