A 2-day Post

Yesterday, Samuel and I were the designated breakfast team. Samuel made enough oatmeal to feed an army, and I made the topping. We sauteed sliced bosc pears with butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Needless to say it was a big hit!
This group of four children were reciting poems to me, and showing me the birds they had made to go along with it. Definitely some Grammy entertainment.

More poetry and artwork...

After lunch Amelia and I decided to make a Texas sheet cake for dinner.

Amelia is quite a little baker woman. She did very well at pouring out the batter into the cake pan... then putting it into the oven with Grammy. After baking for 20 minutes, we cooked the frosting and added it to the hot cake. Milly spread it around, then sprinkled the cake with chopped walnuts. (She really liked that part.)

Of course being the cook has it's rewards.

The best part of course is always in the eating, and everyone was eagerly waiting to sample Milly's cooking.
*Baby Report
No baby as yet. The midwife came yesterday and said the baby has dropped much lower into position. Julie is healthy and feeling alright. She is anxious though to get this baby introduced to the world and the family.
There are no photos from today. Today was one of several mishaps...from a spilled pail of mop water dripping through the ceiling onto the furnace and hot water heater, to Grammy slipping on a muddy hill and getting covered with a brown sticky mud. It's one of those days that happens to everyone, and we are all glad it's almost over for tonight. I hope to report that things are happening with our newest baby tomorrow.

We are praying for that baby to arrive today! Love from Bend, Debbie Lee

It sounds like you are having a wonderful time (well, except for the slipping in the mud part). I look forward to hearing about the new addition to the family :)
